091 MENOPAUSE, HRT AND HOW TO APPROACH YOUR GP show art 091 MENOPAUSE, HRT AND HOW TO APPROACH YOUR GP

Inside My Wardrobe

Menopause is often misdiagnosed so education is paramount. If we can know what to look out for, we will be far more equipped when we go to see the GP for help and support. This week we talk to menopause specialist Sharon Hartmann from the Newson Clinic. She works both in the NHS and the private sector so she has a window on both experiences. The effects of menopause start in our early 40s, sometimes even sooner and often they are misdiagnosed as depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, even alzheimers – you’ll hear all about that across the next few episodes. If you haven’t...

Inside My Wardrobe

It's all in this podcast! First up, we have a catch up after what has been a much longer than anticipated break, and then we talk with Lindsey Beveridge about her recovery from addiction and how she became a nutritional therapist. We hear about the needs of our bodies and how we can help ourselves form new habits as we come out of the experience of Covid and lockdown. We discuss the damage alcohol can do, but also how poor diet affects us long term. Lindsey talks about what we are aiming for, how to go about it, and even what is an acceptable amount to drink - and if you are on HRT, why it's...

087 GOOD GRIEF THIS IS EXHAUSTING show art 087 GOOD GRIEF THIS IS EXHAUSTING

Inside My Wardrobe

Why are we exhausted? Why are we not racing out of the gates now the restrictions are being lifted? Why are we feeling flat? Shouldn't we be feeling more excited and energised?  We have longed for freedom and now that it is here, we don't have the energy for it. Why is that? In this episode we begin to talk about the exhaustion that comes from prolonged stress, trauma and shock management. I saw a car accident last night and after calling 999 and reeling from the shock, I went numb. I needed to recharge after a surge of cortisol flooded my body to deal with what had happened. It's a...

Inside My Wardrobe

2020 has been hard in so many ways, but like in any trauma or tough time in life, how we cope is often determined by the story we choose to tell ourselves. Here's a moving podcast illustrating how to find strength when we keep going anyway. Accepting who we are and where we are at, gives us so much power and once we find that place, we begin the journey of healing and freedom! This episode is perfectly timed as so much change has occurred this year in all of our lives. Much of it for the better, but also with lots of trauma and sadness in the mix. Nina Chesworth's story is a real example of...

083 Why We Are Feeling Exhausted show art 083 Why We Are Feeling Exhausted

Inside My Wardrobe

This has been an immensely difficult year for everyone – in different ways we have made sacrifices, managed stress, illness, loss …the list for everyone is different. Whether its been isolation and loneliness, or fear for loved ones who you can’t see, or managing children whilst working, or desperately trying to find creative ways around running a business so that you can keep your head above water – we’ve all gone through it and everywhere I turn right now, people are tired, fed up, hanging on by a thread. In the news this morning there was a piece on how anti social behaviour and...

Inside My Wardrobe

Welcome to another episode of Inside My Wardrobe – I was originally going to call this “Keeeep Talking” as it’s Strictly Come Dancing season but then I remembered “just keep swimming, swimming swimming” – and I couldn’t really move on from that. You have to have seen the movie Nemo to get the title.  “Just Keep Swimming” is Dory’s line, played by Ellen DeGeneres and her motto taught to her by her Mum, when life gets hard, to just keep swimming …. This week’s guest came about after #76 “How To Eat And Be Happy” with therapist from the Recovery Centre,...
