In this half hour podcast, we cover how Liz came to be the forerunner in so many areas – daytime TV, high fat diets, natural skincare, gut health and how she became one of the first role models to speak out about the menopause.

We talk about Liz’s books – how they nearly weren’t called what they were finally called!

We discuss the menopause – why has it been so little talked about for so long? What are the symptoms that women feel when oestrogen starts to drop? Why did HRT get a bad name? How important is HRT? What does enable women to restore hormone levels during their ‘second half’? As we approach this time in our lives, what do we do? Where do we go? The GP? A clinic? Any other resources?

The podcast is packed full of tips and information. A must listen for any woman, or anyone who knows any woman, who has gone through, is going through or will go through the menopause.
