Real Menopause Talk

The fact that so many of us feel underprepared and even unaware of Peri to Post Menopause, is a fact that needs to change. By sharing as many stories and experiences as possible, we can bring awareness to this life phase and reassure women that they are not alone at what can be an unsettling and even frightening time.

Real Menopause Talk is an opportunity for every woman (and man too) to share and hear stories about real life experiences of Peri to Post Menopause and the impact it has on all life has to offer.

Real Menopause Talk is also a platform for the best resources available so women no longer have to do their own research; they can find solutions and support that suit them, from HRT to diet advice from acupuncture to bonafide supplements. It is a resource in itself as simply being part of a trusting, safe community can improve symptoms. Sometimes just knowing you are not the only one, is a step in the right direction.

Christine and her husband Christophe own a magnificent tourist estate that can accommodate 42 people and receptions for up to 100 and an adjacent restaurant in the South of France. It’s the sort of place that if you stay there, you can’t help but feel great by the time you leave.

Between them they have four grown-up sons, two cats and a selection of chickens.

In this Episode, Christine shines a light on her experience of the French attitude towards Menopause including doctors, men and women. Her own knowledge of Perimenopause and onwards was limited to the cessation of periods and a vague notion of women sweating. Around the same time as moving to Mas des Oules, the menopause entered her life... unawares. Nobody talks about menopause around her, so when the first symptoms came on (problems sleeping, concentrating, excessive anxiety, slow digestion), she didn't make the connection. She didn't understand what was happening to her, associating it with depression when she was having one of the happiest times of her life...

She is a true advocate for talking up when nobody else is and she is passionate about preparing young women so that they are not scared and are simply prepared.

Her Instagram is a peek into Mas des Oules and a visual treat:
