253: Perimenopause: What to Expect - Dr. Meg Mill

On Air with Ella - podcast episode 253


Dr. Meg Mill is sharing the critical things we need to know about the phase of life that we call perimenopause - it's not a diagnosis, it's a season. Listen to how not to just survive it, but actually thrive in this season.

We discuss:

  • Misconceptions about what perimenopause is and how it's defined

  • What women can expect to feel during this time of life

  • How long is typical for this "perimenopause" period?

  • How does stress play a role in our experience?

  • What is the DUTCH test and why is it a better option for testing?

  • Potential side effects of perimenopause or not? Including:

    • hair thinning

    • acne

    • weight gain

    • muscle atrophy

  • The many factors that affect how we experience perimenopause, including:

    • diet & nutrition

    • alcohol

    • thyroid health

    • cortisol levels

  • What should we be doing for an optimal perimenopause experience, including...

    • diet and supplement do's & don'ts

    • avoiding endocrine disruptors

    • testing regularly versus "guessing" what we need
