Apr 17, 2024

Menopause Whist Black Season SIX Episode 4! Our guest for Episode 4 this week is Professor Joyce Harper. Professor Harper is an internationally renowned, award winning educator, author podcaster academic and scientist who has written over 240 scientific papers, published three books and is working on her fourth.

Joyce is leading the development of a UK Menopause Education and Support Programme, is co founder of the UK Fertility Education Initiative, and founder of the International Reproductive Health Education Collaboration.

We talk about so much!

Highlights below:

> the five pillars of well-being

> why getting outside is so important

> the benefits of cold water immersion

> menopause misinformation - how to shut out the noise and so much more.

Joyce wasn't too impressed with my own alternative to cold water swimming - what can I say - I prefer my immersion temperatures to be a tad higher. Are you a cold water swim fan?
