On today’s episode, we’re discussing why gut health matters after cancer.

Everyone seems to be talking about gut health but I want to understand the role of it for when you are in menopause, specifically after cancer. 

- How do I know I have a healthy gut? 

- Does gut health affect my bone health, my sleep, my everything? 

- And are probiotics the answer? 

From a poll in our Facebook group, I know that 30% of our listeners take a probiotic supplement already and 30% want to know more to make an informed decision. 

Today’s guest will help you understand the facts so that you can make the right choice for you. 

I’m delighted to welcome Jo Lyall onto the podcast today. Jo is a nutritional therapist with an incredible 360-degree view of female health. I also love her portfolio career, she’s co-founder of Better Menopause which launched a probiotic specifically for menopause. 

She’s a font of knowledge and has been able to pack so much information into today’s episode, I hope you’ve got your pen & paper ready.

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
