Unlocking Weight Management in Midlife

The Gut-Brain connection and the menopause microbiome. With Dr Vera Martins, MPowder resident naturopath, herbalist and lifestyle medicine practitioner. 

16th May 2024, 7.30pm BST. On Zoom

Why attend:

65% of us are likely to struggle with weight during our menopause transition. From our mid-thirties onwards, our metabolic rate changes - and research now shows our gut microbiota is impacted by menopause too.

But did you know that many of the current trends in weight loss have the opposite effect on our midlife bodies? Designed for young (usually male) metabolisms and biochemistry, they can lead to weight gain and exacerbate symptoms associated with menopause. They can also have a long-lasting impact on our health-span too.

In this Masterclass we will explore the myths and bad science associated with dieting in midlife - and how we can take a holistic nourishing view to balancing our hormones, our guts and our weight.

What to expect:

In this masterclass we will explore the foods that naturally heal our guts, the best wholefood sources for the vitamins and minerals we often lack - and share a unique protocol for weight management, developed by our resident naturopath and herbalist Dr Vera Martins.

Before you attend:

Prior to the session, we will invite you to share your current eating plan, your core questions around the different protocols promoted for weight management; from intermittent fasting to the carnivore diet, from plant-based to IMD-ers. The webinar will then be refined around our collective wants and needs.

What you will leave with.

You will leave the session with a unique naturopathic plan to rebalance the gut, enhance its relationship with your brain and nourish your body.

About our speaker:

Dr Vera Martins
PhD, DipBSLM, MAMH - Naturopath, Herbalist, MPowder's Scientific Lead.

Vera is a Naturopath and Herbalist with a PhD in Biology, and a Lifestyle Medicine Certified practitioner. Put simply, she is a scientist who fell in love with natural health! - and today she practices as a naturopath specialising in female health alongside medical practitioners and clinics, as well as part of MPowder's expert team too.

Vera has extensive experience in supporting women balancing their hormones and optimising their health during perimenopause and menopause, including those on HRT.

Whether it’s supporting your gut health, managing stress, sleeping better, achieving & maintaining a healthy weight, having more energy, or simply just getting back that sense of ”feeling like yourself”, Vera's deep experience will support you every step of the way.

Vera truly believes that the menopause can be a very transformative and invigorating stage of a woman's life, but as such it calls for a revaluation of nutritional and lifestyle habits. Naturopathy, with its 360-degree approach to health, can be a key tool to support body and mind in this journey.
