At Menopause, Weight, Exercise, Education, Income Play Big Roles in Metabolic Risks

A large study published in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society underscores the degree to which low socioeconomically situated women are more prone to disease than women with the luxury of finding themselves both with greater educational and economic opportunities.

Educational and economic disparity places a huge burden on the health of so many women (particularly since over the past forty years or so, the middle class has found itself increasingly shrinking), as well upon our society as a whole.

We need  greater educational and economic equality which will result in preventative healthcare awareness, lifestyle education, and nutritional guidance. This would be a win for the entire country.

I want there to be fewer economic barriers for women of all brackets to the health care information they need and deserve. That is why in 2015, I published a FREE eBook, MENOPAUSE MONDAYS The Girlfriend’s Guide to Surviving and Thriving During Perimenopause and Menopause, a comprehensive guide to all things menopause—the symptoms, the treatments, and the long-range effects on a woman’s health.

My Motto:  Suffering in silence is OUT!  Reaching out is IN!

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
