“This ain’t your Mama’s menopause. You get to define what it looks like moving forward.” – Dr. Mariza Snyder
During perimenopause, it can feel like everything is falling apart. Your body is changing, sex hormones are declining, and ovarian function shifts towards retirement mode. But the more metabolically flexible you are heading into menopause and beyond, the more control you have over how this time in your life plays out.
Functional practitioner Dr. Mariza Snyder believes that by focusing on your mindset and metabolic function, the transition into menopause can become an excellent opportunity to pivot into living the life you want.
In this conversation, we talk about Mariza’s daily practices for good metabolic health, how she uses essential oils in her home and with her young son, the significant impact of mindset on the perimenopause transition, how to start using essential oils in your life, and more.
Mariza is a great friend of mine with a substantial depth of knowledge regarding essential oils, perimenopause, and menopause – she wrote the books on them. If you’re already using essential oils or just curious about how you could incorporate them into your life, I highly recommend Mariza’s books because she is the authority.
