A workshop for women in peri-menopause / menopause / midlife (whatever age that is) to learn that food is not your enemy nor is your body and you can thrive and eat well in this season of life!
Menopause and midlife doesn’t have to be a train crash of weight gain, insomnia, joint pain and low libido. With support, a little knowledge and a whole lot of self compassion we believe it’s possible to eat well, without restriction and fad diets, feel strong, sleep well and navigate the biochemical and emotional transitions that we are all going through.
We’re going to show you how.
Did you know that by 2025 12% of the population, that’s 1 billion of the 8 billion people on the planet, will be going through menopause?
This is the largest cohort of women in history to navigate midlife.
Worse than dealing with hot sweats debilitating insomnia and the struggle of weight and body changes is believing you have to do it all in isolation. You absolutely don’t.
So why not join us with your bestie, your sister or your neighbour and learn how to support yourself.
You will receive access to our slides and a workbook to keep and take notes in.
Access to the recording if you couldn’t make it or would like to watch again.
A little about Alethea
Alethea Mills – BHSc Nut Med
The internet is flooded with people claiming to be health experts and doling out cookie-cutter nutrition advice. Navigating the world of nutrition alone can be overwhelming and confusing. But I am here to hold your hand throughout your journey to a healthier, happier you.
My name is Alethea Mills, and I’m passionate about helping people rediscover the spark of vitality deep within.
As a child, I loved to move my body and stay active. But as I gained weight throughout my teen years, I started believing that sport was only for the ‘fit girls’. So, I walked away from a healthy and active lifestyle.
As the years passed, working in hospitality and living the lifestyle that comes with it took its toll. Every day I felt more lethargic and less like myself. My digestion suffered and eventually, I started to feel anxious and depressed.
I didn’t know what to do with my life. But I knew there had to be a better way to live. So, I began to look for a more vibrant way including regular movement.
I started studying a single health subject to see if it was a fit, and fell in love.
As I began to study the science of the human body, everything changed. With small changes to my diet and lifestyle, my digestion improved, and my anxiety symptoms began to fade. I had found where I wanted to be.
Running became my newest passion, and I ventured into running events. I put my nutrition know-how to use, and saw how diet tweaks could boost my performance, minimise my chance of injury and supported the recovery process.
Thanks to nutrition, I have successfully completed 4 half-marathons, a full marathon, multiple trail running events, a 34km sky run, The Kokoda Challenge 96km Gold Coast event and a 50km trail run over 4 years. But nutrition also soothed my gut, supported my mood, and gave me back my zest for life.
Running taught me a lot about myself. But it also taught me about training as a woman. So many women have never been taught that it’s natural to experience fluctuations in energy, performance and motivation. This is a normal part of our hormonal cycles. But instead of fighting against it, I want to help women like you to work with them, so you can achieve your goals.
Being able to understand the connection between exercise and hormonal changes was a turning point for me. Whether you’re an endurance runner, a park runner, a triathlete, a yogi, or someone that prefers a gentle walk, I want to share my experience and advice with you. I have worked with weekend warriors, first-time marathoners, world championship Ironman athletes to a local Gold Coast runner who completed 31 Marathons in 31 Days.
If you’re ready to perform at your best every day, I’m here to help you do just that. When you have a happy gut, a healthy relationship with food, you can take on the world and smash any goal!
Keri Krieger BHsc Chinese Med
I stumbled into Chinese Medicine as a very young woman in my early 20’s back in the 90’s! I graduated with what was then an Advanced Diploma of Applied Sciences and eventually updated this to a BA in Health Sciences in 2004.
The poetic language and inherent wisdom of nature within Chinese Medicine has held me spellbound all these years and has been the lens through which I have lived my life.
Chinese Medicine is an ancient art and science and provides a model of care that I have found supports the women I see in clinic so well. This occurs not only through acupuncture treatment but also by offering a pathway to live life in accordance with our own true nature.
Women ebb and flow and change with the seasons; Chinese Medicine speaks to these seasonal and elemental changes with clarity and purpose and offers modalities of care for each transition.
It is with a privilege and enormous passion that I share this knowledge not only from study but my own lived experience.
It is also a great passion of hers to translate the traditions of Chinese medicine into a modern context to support clients and therapists to create optimal wellbeing and learn to thrive in their lives without compromising their health.
This includes assisting clients through the mental and emotional transitions that come up throughout life, utilising the Five Element model to bring the body back into harmony, and providing guidance and the tools necessary to allow clients to maintain that equilibrium on their own.
