Menopause|Perimenopause|  Culinary Medicine|Nutrition Workshops

These group meetings|workshops are designed to discuss various topics on Nutrition, Exercise, Functional Medicine, Culinary Medicine, Hormonal balance, Perimenopause and Menopause and its related and associated conditions. These are designed to discuss topics that relate to all women but especially to those women over 35. They are educational within the structure of an organized discussion group. They provide up-to-date and accurate information on menopause, perimenopause, osteopenia, osteoporosis, urinary incontinence, sex after menopause, weight changes, adequate nutrition, vitamins & minerals, fertility, culinary medicine, irregular uterine bleeding, breast cancer, gynecologic and non gynecologic cancers, hormone replacement therapy, hormonal balance, bio identical hormones, sport medicine and herbology.

These workshops are not only educational; it is also a “process” group. Thus, the primary focus is on the participants and their desire to share their experiences, help one another understand their choices, and empower one another to be informed and to take care of themselves. The atmosphere should be one of encouragement, acceptance, and inclusion.

Members of a group who are comfortable in expressing their feelings and thoughts find a therapeutic benefit to group participation. The peer support is valued and motivates women to explore their own uniqueness and seek peer feedback. These women who participate in groups report more often feeling less self- critical, more appreciative of their strengths and better able to achieve their goals.

Women participating in these Perimenopause and  Menopause workshops|seminars do not need to be actual patients of Texas Menopause, however if desired, appointments can be scheduled for a more personal and individualized assesment.

Target audience for these groups are all women especially those after 35 (perimenopause transtion) or post menopause, or those who have experienced  premature menopause due to a surgical removal of the ovaries or chemotherapy related therapy.  Pre-registration is encouraged. Agendas will be emailed to participants as these will serve to structure the workshops. Individual participation during the event is encourage although not mandatory.

A small fee may be charged. Fees will include a well managed structured, take home material and refreshments. More information will be discussed during initial meeting and via email. Please include info@TexasMenopause.com to your email contacts. Send us an email or visit our contact page.
