/

This week we meet Dr. Olivia Lesslar and explore the relationship between menopause and anxiety. 

Here’s some key points discussed:

Menopausal Anxiety:  The episode sheds light on the challenges of menopause and its significant psychological impact. Shelley highlights a staggering 92% of individuals in The Aging Project community reported menopausal anxiety. This staggering statistic underscores the urgency of exploring effective coping strategies.

The Power of a Holistic Approach: Dr. Lesslar introduces the term “Psycho Neuro Endo Immunology” to describe her professional background which emphasises the inseparability of the body and mind. 

Science-Backed Techniques: The conversation delves into lesser-known anxiety management techniques, such as meditation, visualisation, immersing oneself in nature, and breathwork. What’s remarkable is that these techniques are all grounded in solid scientific research. Dr. Lesslar reveals the science behind these methods, providing a compelling case for their efficacy. 

Expanding the Anxiety Toolkit:  Dr. Lesslar advocates for expanding the toolkit for managing anxiety. She encourages individuals to explore a plethora of options, empowering them to tailor their anxiety management strategies to their unique needs.

Dr. Lesslar underscores the pivotal role of education in mental health empowerment. Education equips individuals to make informed decisions about their mental well-being. The provision of resources is essential for fostering mental health awareness, ultimately enabling individuals to take ownership of their mental health.
