Understanding Hormonal Changes: Dr. Estima emphasizes the importance of recognizing the hormonal ebbs and flows that occur during perimenopause and menopause. These transitions can significantly impact a woman’s overall well-being, including mood, energy levels, and cognitive function. By understanding these changes, women can better navigate this phase of life with grace and self-compassion.

Nurturing the Body Through Symptoms: One key takeaway from Dr. Estima’s insights is the shift in mindset from viewing symptoms as negative occurrences to seeing them as messages from the body. Symptoms during perimenopause and menopause can be signals that something is out of balance. By nurturing the body and listening to these messages, women can take proactive steps to support their hormonal health and mental well-being.

Empathy and Support in Relationships: For partners of women going through perimenopause and menopause, Dr. Estima highlights the importance of sympathy and support. Understanding the physiological changes and emotional fluctuations that women may experience during this time can foster a deeper connection and mutual understanding in relationships. By creating a safe and supportive environment, partners can play a crucial role in helping women navigate this phase of life with greater ease.

Taking Control of Hormonal Health: Dr. Estima’s approach encourages women to take control of their hormonal health by exploring various lifestyle factors that can influence hormonal balance. From nutrition and stress management to exercise and emotional well-being, women have the power to make positive changes that support their overall health during perimenopause and menopause. By embracing a holistic approach to hormonal health, women can enhance their well-being and thrive during this transformative stage of life.
