A Modern Menopause – Why Hormone Support Today is a "Piece of Cake"

A Modern Menopause – Why Hormone Support Today is a "Piece of Cake"

In this episode, I (Dr. Daniela Steyn) engage in a conversation with Dr. Julia Fountain about modern menopause. Dr. Fountain is a Naturopathic Doctor, NAMS-Certified Menopause Practitioner, and the founder of HealthSpan Wellness in Georgetown, ON. Her clinical practice is wholeheartedly dedicated to assisting women in midlife as they navigate their health and hormones through education, nutrition, and lifestyle strategies. She prescribes menopause hormone therapy when indicated, guiding women to explore their options, advocate for themselves when needed, and choose to 'play' rather than 'pause' in midlife! Dr. Fountain shares her knowledge on: 1. How she became interested in peri-menopausal and post-menopausal care. 2. What a ‘modern menopause’ involves? 3. What she means by ‘hormone support is a piece of cake’. 4. What she sees for the next generation – our daughter’s menopause. Join us today to listen to this valuable conversation on navigating a modern menopause.
