Think of the NuU 12-step healthy menopause programme as a nutritional reset. It makes you stop and think about what you are eating and drinking, and what you are 'not' eating and drinking; it helps you consider how and why making some 'you' time will help you lead a healthy life. It provides you with easy to understand information about key values towards leading a healthy life including diet and wellness. Each step involves the 'gradual' addition of something healthy or the 'gradual' removal of something unhealthy, so that at the end of the programme, you feel wholesome and rejuvenated.
Menopause - ‘the change’, ‘the climacteric’, ‘the time of life’ – call it what you will is defined by the World Health Organisation as the permanent cessation of menstruation and marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. As a biological event for women around the world, menopause itself is universal. For many women this natural process is a time of anxiety and distress due to the various symptoms that can accompany it. Menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. In the UK the average age is 51, however before menopause there is a period of time leading up to this final event, the peri-menopause.
From a naturopathic nutrition perspective, hormone imbalance (which includes thyroid, cortisol, insulin – as well as our sex hormones) can be caused from emotional or physical stress, poor diet, nutrient deficiencies, inflammation, poor sleep or any number of root causes.

It incorporates diet and lifestyle techniques to manage weight gain and hormonal imbalances, reduce symptoms like mood changes, fatigue, insomnia and hot flushes, reduce the risk of osteoporosis and optimise cardiovascular and adrenal health.
