Histamine Intolerance is one of the much lesser-known symptoms of menopause and I am delighted to welcome Dr Anisha Patel onto this week's episode. Anita has been diagnosed with bowel cancer herself and shares not only her personal story but also many nuggets from her professional experience as a GP with a special interest in women’s health.

A key takeaway for me from speaking to Anisha was that all things take time. Time to unfold and understand.

So, if you are feeling a little frustrated that you might not have found solutions or help in managing your menopausal symptoms as quickly as you’d hoped, then I hope today’s episode will show that even if you’re a doctor and even if you’re a doctor who is married to another doctor, it takes some time to put two and two together!

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.
