NCWQ would like to share an open invitation from our Affiliate member, Soroptimist International Bayside for you to attend their “Demystifying Menopause Forum”, Saturday 17 July at the Redlands Sporting Club.
Demystifying Menopause Forum
This forum aims to demystify Menopause. Leading professionals will consider the symptoms and impacts of Perimenopause, Menopause and Post Menopause on women and their families. They will also explore suitable treatments (medical, medicinal and natural) and lifestyle changes beneficial to women.
Wear comfortable clothes to enjoy gentle stretching exercises during breaks. Bring along your questions!
Dr Peta Wright – Gynaecologist – Eve Health
Dr Peta Wright is a Gynaecologist consulting from Eve Health at Spring Hill. From August 2021, she will be based at her newly established holistic practice, Vera Women’s Wellness, in the Samford Valley. Completing her undergraduate medical degree at Monash University in Melbourne in 2004, Dr Wright’s training has been centred in tertiary level hospitals. She is deeply committed to all aspects of women’s health care and strives to take a holistic approach to managing the health concerns of women of all ages.
When it comes to treating any gynaecological condition, it is of utmost importance to Peta that she educates and informs her patients and aims to empower them to achieve the best quality of life possible. She is also highly tuned to the ways that nutrition, stress and lifestyle can affect hormonal balance and aims to help women work on these aspects of their lives as part of their overall health picture.
Elysia Humphries – Naturopath & Nutritionist – Vibe Natural Health
Elysia has been a women’s health Naturopath & Nutritionist for 22 years. She has a down to earth way of listening to your story and drawing together the root causes of your issues, to find practical solutions to help you feel yourself again.
She has a passion for team health care, as chronic health conditions often “take a village” and has worked closely with Dr Peta Wright and local gynaecologists and the natural medicine team in her Brisbane based clinic, Vibe Natural Health.
She presents education to health practitioners and corporate health seminars and runs workshops with Peta with their “Doctor and the Naturopath” project (www.thedoctorandthenaturopath.com) to educate and empower women about their bodies.
Elysia and Peta will discuss menopause support from the perspective of a Naturopath and a Gynaecologist, discussing diet, lifestyle, libido, sleep, stress and natural and medical hormone
