Shownotes

“Is this brain fog, is it overwhelm due to life being busy?”

“Am I suffering from brain fog because of chemo or because of menopause?”

“Is brain fog worse on tamoxifen?”


“Haven’t been able to go back to work. My brain fog is so bad.”


In today’s episode, we discuss all of the above and some helpful strategies with two fabulous guests. Dr LindseyThomas is one of the UK’s most knowledgable menopause specialists when it comes to cancer and menopause and she explains everything she would advise a patient in her busy NHS clinic. 

Since the release of the popular episode on how to look after your long-term brain health (Episode 49), I am pleased to say that dietician Barbie Boule is back on the show! 

These two women make a dream team of experts for sure and we tackle brain fog in as much detail as possible.

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.
