In this episode, we meet Dr. Tara Allmen to get menopause advice and solutions presented in her book Menopause Confidential: A Doctor Reveals the Secrets to Thriving Through Midlife.
Every man needs a gynecologist for menopause advice
An accountant and a gynecologist have in common when meeting a man at a party, the question ‘what do you do for a living' is a conversation stopper. It shouldn't be that way. At least not when you meet a gynecologist. There is a lot to learn what the women in your life are (or will) experience. Menopause advice works for both women and men.
The symptoms of perimenopause and menopause can cause sleep disruption. It is important for women to focus on getting the best quality sleep. A few sleep tips provided by Dr. Allmen include:
- Go to bed at the same time each night.
- Avoid stimulants that will disrupt sleep such as heavy meals, alcohol, and caffeine.
- Cool, dark bedroom.
- Don't keep your phone by the bed.
- Eat healthy foods.
- Exercise regularly.
Dr. Allmen decided to design her own colon cleansing approach and has been successful in coming up with a way that is a lot easier. She's shared this approach with her patients and they've had great results in colon screening prep. While not menopause advice, it is something we face in mid-life and you may find Dr. Allman's recipe for colon cleansing easy and effective.
