NATALIA TRAXEL, WPPC NUTRITIONIST AND QUALIFIED DOCTOR, WHO ALSO TEACHES AT THE RAYMOND BLANC COOKERY SCHOOL, WILL PRESENT A TALK ON THE FOLLOWING TOPICS: Menopause and Osteoporosis
In this lecture Natalia Traxel will explain the importance of good nutrition for the Menopause and to help prevent Osteoporosis and how you can help your body and your mind.
The transition to Menopause, the process when the ovaries stop releasing eggs and you stop having periods, is usually gradual and can last for several years. Most of the factors that accompany menopause are temporary, but they can be harmful for a woman’s health or have adverse effects on everyday life.
Doctors have known for years that a woman’s risk of developing heart disease rises after menopause, but they weren’t exactly sure why.
A new study shows that menopause, not the natural ageing process, is responsible for a sharp increase in cholesterol levels.
Cutting intake of processed carbohydrates while increasing intake of protein and healthy fats such as omega-3s can lower blood triglyceride and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels, which can reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, can help, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.
Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens bones, increasing the risk of sudden and unexpected fractures. Meaning “porous bone,” it results in an increased loss of bone mass and strength.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D intake is necessary to attain and maintain normal bone quantity and quality.
