Healthy View Radio Episode 36: Surviving Perimenopause with Maria Claps

For those of you entering what can be a confusing stage of life, perimenopause, (eek!), we brought our sage wisdom to you this week. To help you better navigate this time of your life, functional diagnostic nutritionist, and women’s hormonal health specialist, Maria Claps, joined us to share her personal experience with hormonal changes, what happens in the body when perimenopause occurs, and her top three tips for balancing hormones.

Bev Roberts, a certified wellbeing transformation specialist and author of Hope in a Dark Tunnel, dealt with a mysterious illness that mimicked perimenopause symptoms as well. She opened up about how she was treated dismissively by her health care team before she grabbed the reins and took control of her own health.
