This week Staness of Menopause Makeover is hosting Fashion Flash. This upbeat and supportive site offers valuable and reassuring wellness advice for the changes that come with “The Change”. While those days are behind me, I love Menopause Makeover for its delicious AND healthy recipes. Her turkey chili is my go-to dish that I bring to Superbowl parties. I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of fish, but her fish recipes which also feature nutrient packed vegetables are so tasty it makes it easy to get in those two weekly servings of Omega 3’s. It makes life very pleasant when a dish of Panko Coated Tilapea, Louisiana Cafishfish with corn and okra and and Asian Tuna Kebobs are as healthy as they are enjoyable. Too many recipes in magazines seem to be created just to fill up pages. By contrast the recippes in Menopause Makeover have been carefully tested and tasted before they are published. Nice.
Menopause and its little cousin peri-menopause, create a tsunami of physical and emotional issues that can last more than a decade. To provide comprehensive health support, woman’s health expert and cardiologist Dr Nieca Goldberg is developing a new comprehensive Menopause Program at the NYU Langone Center for Women’s Health. The goal will be to provide unique support for the symptoms, health care and treatment options. To make sure that the services truely meet our needs, Dr Goldberg, who is the Director of the NYU Langone Center for Women’s Health , has organized a pair focus groups in Manhattan on April 25 and April30th. If you are between the ages of 44-59, come to a dinner to explore how menopause and peri-menopause affects you with symptoms that include irritability, anxiety, hot flashes and sleep problems– and what services you would want to see in an effective program.
