Depression, anxiety, bone-crushing fatigue, incontinence, heart palpitations, migraines. What the hell is going on? Shockingly, your family doctor may not know it’s menopause. And you’ll end up feeling like you’re losing your mind like this week’s guest Amanda Thebe, author of Menopocalypse: How I Learned to Thrive During Menopause and How You Can Too.
Amanda was so frustrated by her two year odyssey to find out what was derailing her life (spoiler alert: it was perimenopause), she wrote a book to help other women avoid the same fate. It details her experience and offers concrete information about what happens during perimenopause, advice on how to advocate for yourself, and myriad ways to help yourself through the transition. She’s a certified personal trainer with many specialty certifications, a PN1 nutrition coach, and the owner of her own fitness company, Fit n’ Chips.
