Menopause Health Matters

Women’s Menopause Health & Wellness Online

Menopause Health Matters is an independent health and wellness website and blog. Helping women to be their own health advocate by providing answers and references to assist in making informed choices about lifestyle changes and treatments and how these can impact their transition through the stages of perimenopause through to postmenopause.

Menopause is simply the natural evidence of the maturing feminine body, something that has been treated as an unnecessary taboo in our culture. It’s not a secret that growing older holds a lot of social, psychological and physiological weight for some women. Thankfully, due to the number of emerging female voices and influences, the collective attitude is becoming more positive and empowering.
In November 2015, NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) UK, issued the first guideline on diagnosis and managing menopause. You can find the guideline for professionals and a simplified version for women patients here.
