While the subjects of hormones, perimenopause and menopause are less taboo now than in previous generations, many women remain in the dark about this transitional period of their lives. Many don’t want to discuss their bodily changes, others don’t know where to get helpful information or understand what is even menopause related. Denise Pines, aging enthusiast, founder of WisePause Wellness and immediate past president of the Medical Board of California, is changing the conversation around these subjects. Her fourth WisePause Lifestyle event will bring in experts from around the globe to discuss common menopause issues as well as complex ones around topics such as nutrition, sex, sleep, hormones, gut health, brain fog and much more. The 8-hour virtual event will be held on Saturday, March 27 starting at 9am PT/12 noon ET.
“My goal is to normalize menopause by starting to educate and empower women through the WisePause platform,” says Pines. “I know that as I aged, my body changed in ways that my mother or other elders never explained to me. Perimenopause and menopause and the hormonal changes that occur during this time can be vexing, confounding and for some, down-right scary. Women have questions and symptoms that they don’t want to say out loud. WisePause offers a safe space where experts can address their questions with other like-minded individuals to provide the answers that women have sought for millennia.”
Speakers and topics Women in Transition: Finding Balance from Perimenopause to Menopause with Dr. Genester Wilson-King, FACOG, Dr. Pei Vuong and Dr. Laurie Steelsmith, ND; Rituals for Menopause with Barbara Biziou; Time to Ask The Doctor Q&A with Dr. Sofia Herrera; Dress for the Body You Have Now with personal stylist Meg Gallagher; Energy Clearing with Alyse Hart, Can I Still Have Heart Stopping Sex with Dr. Gail Jackson, MD, OB/GYN and tantra expert Kamali Minter as well as tutorials in yoga, breath-work, exercise and fitness, makeup, hair thinning and more.
“I want women to celebrate their age, their body changes and know that with the right guidance and information, they can look forward to being healthy well into their 90’s,” concludes Pines. People are told that weight gain, flabbiness and hormonal ups and downs are normal, but these symptoms can oftentimes be mitigated. WisePause shows them how.”
