How Functional Medicine can help you experience a smooth menopause journey

Avoid the rollercoaster hormonal chaos of unwanted weight gain, brain fog and energy crashes


By the year 2030, the global population will include approximately 1.2 billion women who have entered menopause. Women can expect to live as many years or more years post-menopause than they did pre-menopause so it is critical that women get the education and health help they deserve to manage this time of life. Menopause ought to represent a life transition bringing peace, calm and new adventures. Unfortunately society has driven a narrative of menopause being a gynaecological event ending reproductive life and with it libido; dry skin; aging; lack of energy; brain fog and weight gain.

How can you learn to love not dread menopause 

At Metabolix Health we love to work with women in their peri-menopause and menopause transitions and beyond. Functional medicine truly shines for women facing these changes, it is a client-centric model of health. The first thing I often hear from clients is that “I am exercising just as much, and I am eating a healthy diet but I am gaining weight in places I have never seen before - HELP!”

Regain libido

By addressing hormone drops of estrogen and progesterone, and
balancing all over systems, you can enjoy renewed libido.

Reduce hot flashes and menopause vasodilation

Lifestyle changes and improvements
in diet and overall health can alleviate these symptoms.

Enjoy a great night’s sleep

wake at 2 am and struggle to stay asleep.

The Full Rundown On Menopause

The truth is that your organs and tissues change starting in your late 30’s and extending into your 60’s. This is a long period of time and emphasizes why having a health strategy and investing in your health early is important because it can help to offset some of these challenges.However, it isn’t too late if you are willing to follow our metabolic reset program to help your changed metabolism improve protein synthesis, lipid metabolism and glycolysis. It takes commitment, a change in the way we eat, different forms of exercise and movement and learning how to manage your stress levels. This is why we have health coaches available to help you integrate the clinical plans and roadmap we put together for you.

Nutrition is an important pillar of lifestyle interventions that can impact hormonal balance. You may need to avoid various foods, to give your body a chance to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is often to blame for much of our health issues and with the reduction in hormones, can worsen during menopause if not addressed properly. Reduced estrogen increases cardiometabolic risks for women entering menopause, but specific nutrition interventions can make a significant improvement in overall health. Nutrition may play a part in managing vasomotor symptoms and enhancing quality of life.

Estrogen and progesterone are known for their influence on inflammation, bone health and cardiovascular health. Diet can definitely impact levels of unwanted symptoms associated with menopause and we place a big emphasis on dietary changes with our clients

  • We place a very big emphasis on nutrition changes in peri-menopause and menopause.
  • Collaboratively, we will put together a client-centered framework to navigate these life changes based on your bio-individuality.
  • Partnering with a functional medicine clinic during menopause can have longevity and anti-aging benefits.

Menopause is about more than a drop in estrogen, and this is why we don’t prescribe to the philosophy that you can alleviate all symptoms by just taking bio-identical hormones. We do help women with hormone augmentation where appropriate. We are evidence-based and rely upon your medical history, specific functional medicine lab testing along with your current symptoms.
