As women, there is so much that we experience in our bodies throughout the course of our lives that feels out of our control. And how we are socialized can impact our narrative of how we view natural occurring processes such as menstruation and menopause. When we are raised with a narrative of “this sucks” or fearing “the big change” it will impact how we relate to these biological and necessary shifts in our bodies. In this conversation with Ruth Jamieson, who is a nutritional therapist and functional medicine practitioner, we talk about the experience that she went through in perimenopause that lead her to seeking more information not only about her own body, but how to guide women in increasing great awareness and understanding of their own bodies, as well as ways they could soften their shifts into perimenopause and menopause. This helpful and insightful conversation will help any woman to feel more empowered about how to take more control over their overall health. Hint: diet and lifestyle are almost always the answer!



After failing to get answers for some unusual symptoms in her early 40s, Ruth discovered they were related to Perimenopause. Her own journey and research into this very important and natural phase of a woman’s life, opened her eyes to a whole world of unnecessary suffering and lack of support for women going through perimenopause.

Knowing from her own experience that it needn’t be this way, she felt compelled to help women change the perimenopause narrative, and navigate through perimenopause naturally with cutting edge hormone testing, diet, lifestyle, and natural supplements.  


She is a women’s health and hormones expert, the founder of Empowered Wellness her online clinic supporting women 1-2-1, and her Menopause Matters and Magic group coaching membership, helping women in their 40s and 50s sail smoothly through perimenopause so they can feel better than ever, and live a life they love.
