A couple months ago I interviewed author Amanda Thebe about her new book “Menopocalypse; How I Learned To Thrive During Menopause and How You can Too‘” on both my podcast and Instagram Live Series. Her book covers topics many midlife women are not comfortable discussing which fall under the umbrella of menopause. Amanda tackles them all with a refreshing approach, mindset and a good dose of her cheeky humor. She covers topics such as hormone replacement therapy, stress and fitness…basically how to not only survive but conquer menopause.
How To Conquer Menopause
Amanda is a fitness and women’s health expert who can talk the talk because she can walk the walk. She suffered debilitating effects from menopause herself having no idea what was happening to her. She felt alone and was desperate. Amanda manages to cut though all the information, misinformation and basically all the bull crap in between but disseminates her tidbits of knowledge in an easy to understand and relatable way.
When you listen to the podcast and Instagram Live you will learn a bit about Amanda’s approach to:
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone related stress
Depression and lack of energy
Weight training and why it’s now more important than ever.
