As with any change, this transition can have an impact on how we feel. You may have a persistent cold, cough or infection. But remember, our bodies often ‘have our back’ without us even knowing. So, if you’re feeling ‘low’ right now it's likely that your immune system is working its magic.
Remember too that, just because you are phenomenally skilled at ‘pushing through’, it doesn’t mean you should. Listen in. And if you’re tired, carve out time to rest. If you’re feeling vulnerable and weepy, be kind to yourself. If the world feels a little grey, go and seek out the joy.
In this month’s Meno.Well Masterclass we took a deep dive into what happens to our immune system in menopause. And our resident naturopath and herbalist Dr Martins shared a number of powerful, nourishing recipes designed to support us. Here is our team favourite for you to try and home.
Shiitake and Chicken Immune Boosting Soup (Serves 4)
Note: this dish can be made into a vegan recipe by excluding the chicken.
With love, Rebekah & The MPowder Team.
