Menopause is a time to reclaim our power, to find our voice and speak out loudly and clearly

National Integrated Health Associates, NIHA will hold a seminar, Making the Most of Menopause, on Oct. 30 or November 1, 8, and 15. Presented by a team of specialists, the seminars blend wisdom with a comprehensive range of information that covers the many aspects of menopause. Seminars are designed to provide a feeling of community for all women who might be feeling alone on this journey.

Menopause can be a ten year journey- physically, emotionally and spiritually, and yet so much about this unique time is misunderstood. Women are often confused and unsure about where to go for help and information. Many feel that Menopause is a time to be survived, not embraced. "Menopause is a time to reclaim our power, to find our voice and speak out loudly and clearly," says Annie Hinkley, a Couple and Family Therapy Counselor, and co-presenter of the seminar.

This seminar is divided into three parts, designed to touch on the following key areas:

Part 1: Managing Symptoms
In this session, Cathlene Scoblionko, NIHA'S resident Nurse Practitioner and a Diplomat of the American Board of Anti Aging Health Practitioners, will cover the many symptoms and changes your body could experience as you move from peri-menopause to menopause and beyond. She will share with you ways to cope with these changes through traditional methods and natural alternatives.

Part 2: Appreciate the Journey
From relationships to self-esteem, this session aims to bring perspective and positivity to your journey. Addressing one of the most misunderstood areas surrounding menopause, Annie Hinkley will discuss the predictable emotional and spiritual changes faced by women in this new stage of their lives. Annie is a therapist with a Masters in Couple and Family Therapy who has been helping advise women on their menopause journey since 1997. She will offer tips on how to navigate this passage and step into our power.

Part 3: Looking Your Best
Retain or regain your beautiful self. Style advice from Roy Payne, an internationally accredited stylist who will give advice on how to look your best as your body goes through the change.
