If you could make a few changes and avoid falling ill this Winter, surely that would be worth it. No one enjoys having a cold!

Weight gain, for those of us who aren’t underweight, is never a welcomed prospect. Fighting back once you’ve gained a few pounds is so much harder than prevention.

A decrease in libido is extremely common, especially among menopausal and perimenopausal women.
Have you noticed that as you reach menopause or even perimenopause, digestive problems start to play up? Acid reflux and constipation are common complaints in older women.
