We love it when a woman on a mission makes such an impact - and that is an understatement when that woman is Rebekah Brown.
Turned away by her GP because she was ‘too young’ to have symptoms of menopause, Rebekah found herself trawling the aisles of the local health food store, staring at a vast range of products and ingredients she knew nothing about – faced with imagery that certainly didn’t represent her or her friends (park the cardi and the heavy boots for now..)
Curiosity cut through the brain fog. And applying her creative, research investigator mind, Rebekah looked further into the bio-chemical changes the female body goes through in menopause and what vitamins we all need at each stage, regardless of symptoms.
Armed with insight, and a growing sense of outrage that women were under-served with honest information and better options, Rebekah took things into her own hands and MPowder was born.
In this podcast we cover;
· How outrage fuels change
· Inherited narratives and changing the menopause conversation
· Acceptance that meditation is not a competitive sport
· The transformational nature of acupuncture
· Making cold water therapy accessible – you don’t need a wet suit
· Why we have a right and an obligation to talk with our GPs
· How menopause can be your superpower
