Clare Shepherd is an award winning registered nutritional therapist and menopause health coach
My menopause started in my early 30’s, alongside the increasingly crippling symptoms of endometriosis; yet both were misdiagnosed for 7 years, resulting in a full hysterectomy age 39.
I was shocked, I had never really heard of the word menopause before, it was something whispered behind closed doors to explain older women’s irrational behaviour.
A personal decision, I weaned myself off HRT age 51 and determined to find out how I could support myself naturally. I trained in nutrition, exploring many other therapies and lifestyle changes along the way. Some worked, some didn’t, but they provided me with a powerful armory of tools at my disposal and vital insight into the unique journeys women go through during the menopause transition.
I’m delighted that I can now confidently say there is a bright light waiting on the other side of menopause!
What I do
Based on my own experience and training, I now educate, support and encourage other women worldwide to find a way through their own menopause, embracing an holistic approach. Over 15 years of consistent research and learning I offer on-line education and coaching programmes to help ease the menopause symptoms affecting both body and mind. Always acknowledging that there is no one-size-fits-all, we are all unique.
The peri-post menopause transition can be a roller coaster for many, yet simple nutrition and lifestyle changes can make a significant difference, with the added bonus of creating optimum health through menopause and beyond, a time to live a full and vibrant life, back in control, confident and free.
