“Your background knowledge and the possibility to do something for me, finally made me do something.” Hello Susanne, Thanks a lot for all the information.

In voller Blüte Denise Boomkens

The Dutch Denie Boomkens wrote a book: “In full bloom”. It’s a combination of picture book and short statements made by 100 women between the ages of 40 and 100 years. One more beautiful than the next. And the statements overflow with life lessons of intelligent women. It’s an ode to life. “Since I started…

A few years ago I was looking for christmas presents at a book store and came across an interior design book, which I really liked. I kept on creeping around it for a while until I finally designed to buy it. At the register, I said: “I’m giving this to myself.” and the cashier smiled…

But I don’t want to be on a rollercoaster on my own, and definitely while seemingly doing it perfectly. To be honest, what women can do that? A little something about me, I turned 46 years old in April and almost exactly 10 years ago gave birth to my son. Why am I telling you…

“I am eternally thankful for the comprehensive, positive change in my life which I’ve been profiting from since March.” I’ve been following the BODY RESET principle and completely accepted the key rules into my life (however, I’d be more than happy to refresh everything the next time around). More specifically, in my case that means:…

“Who thinks that the Kalahari desert is dry has never been in my lap.” For a few years there has been a new term floating around the field of gynaecology: Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GMS). This includes the menopausal changes in the whole genitourinary tract as well as vulvo-vaginal atrophy, dryness, burning sensations, irritations, and…

“In the evening the headache reached a level requiring two ibuprofens and my mood was murderous.” In the meantime I finally overcame the ‘coffee-crisis’ and I can write about it without scaring off potential new participants. But while the crisis was going on, it felt like it would be like this forever. It started around…

I’ve never had much understanding for people who try following a recipe, then decide to change at least 5 steps and then complain about how the end result ist not great. That’s why I’m hesitant to talk about how not much has changed for me so far. I can see in our WhatsApp group that…

Tonight something is happening that people might not expect of me: For three weeks I’ll deny myself things – voluntarily. Things I’d usually defend whatever it takes. For example, chocolate croissants (I won’t get rid of them immediately, but in the long run they’ll have to leave). The coffee to go with them, that will…

We are moving forward back to the “normality” of the past. And the question I have asked myself is: what do I now take with me from this state of emergency of the last 15 months? A friend says to me: “Oh, actually, the imposed calm has done me good and now … the whole…

As we have already learned in other articles on this site, the menopause catches most women more or less unprepared. At some point, the surprise bag of accompanying symptoms slowly opens and you realise that the previously unknown complaints must be caused by the hormonal change. "The unattractive side effect of this therapy, however, is…

We all know by now that refined sugar has negative effects on our bodies long-term. So sugar is neither healthy nor nessecery for us. Our bodies are able to produce it ourselves from starch products.
