I’m Aisling, and I’ve created My Second Spring to provide a voice and resource for all of us during the time of transition and growth that is the menopause. Menopause is often an uncomfortable topic, still taboo for many of us.
Those of you who were at our Hair Masterclass last April will know that volunteers were sought to take part in the Viviscal Journey. Each journeywoman undertook to use Viviscal products for a period of 3 months, record the results and report back.
These 5 stories will feature in Irish Country Magazine and VIP in October/November. First up in Irish Country magazine in October - Karin and Lizzy telling their remarkable stories and looking WOW!
I conceived the idea of a website about the menopause early in February 2013. What a coincidence that it has taken me nine months to bring it to fruition and launch on 18th October 2013.
During my research, I learnt lots about the menopause, and here are some key findings:
Menopause is complete when we have had no periods for 12 months.
Most symptoms take place during perimenopause - the 4-8 years before menopause.
Only about 10% of women will need medical treatment for menopause symptoms.
100% of women will benefit from positive lifestyle adjustments in areas such as diet, exercise and stress management.
If we have unresolved life issues we may have a more difficult menopause.
Osteoporosis is known as the silent disease - it comes upon us without warning symptoms.
During the website's 9 month gestation I also learned a lot about computers, website design, affiliate marketing, search engine optimisation, blogging and persevering. So if you've got any inkling to pursue a business, follow a dream or start again in any way, go ahead and take the first step today! You'll find lots of support here.
