Shownotes

I believe that we need to tap into many “well-being buckets” in order to manage our menopause after a cancer diagnosis. 

I doubt that just by doing one thing alone we will feel as good as we want to and also deserve to feel. It’s also not about just managing our physical symptoms because we’re 3-dimensional human beings - and I think our approach to our health needs to be 3-dimensional too. 

So in today’s episode, I will talk you through how my well-being buckets evolved, what’s in them and why I think we need to have a few on hand so that we can nurture and tend to our ever-evolving us.

Mine are:

Diet

Movement

Mental Health

Medical Treatments (hormonal and non-hormonal)

Complementary Therapies

Triggers

The New Me

In this episode, I take you on a little journey of how each of those buckets was opened up to me and how that came about.

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.
