World Menopause day is taking place on Monday the 18th of October and to acknowledge this I thought I’d share some fantastic free training on offer for both men and women from the Menopause Experts and I have also been asked for an update on my progress with the HRT. Before I launch into my ‘tell all’ on HRT, I thought I’d give you a reminder of who I am, in case you haven’t read my previous blogs. My name is Zoe, I am 45 and have a 5-year-old son. I am what is affectionally termed in the medical trade...

Since writing my recent blog: 10 things I wish i’d known about the Perimenopause as an ‘older mum’! (you are not losing your mind!) and receiving such an overwhelming response I thought I’d follow it up with the other question I have been asked ‘Has HRT made a difference yet?  As HRT is not something I expected to be taking this early in life, I thought I’d keep a diary a kind of ‘Bridget Jones – The Peri-Menopause Years’ if you will!

From legitimate medication in the 60's to a party drug in the 70's psychedelics  similar to Cannabis, have received a bad rep! However it would appear that with the legalisations of Psychedelic 'treatment' in many states in the US and the growing public interest in the UK for mental health treatment it is looking like they are making returning as a legitimate form of treatment (although we are loathed to say this!) so lets stick with therapy.If you have an interest in this area and haven't yet seen the recent BBC2 programme 'Psychedelics - The Drug Trail' then we can highly recommend it. Along with Fantastic Fungi on Netflix.If your interested but...
