Women usually think about hot flashes and other common symptoms connected to menopause, but don't often consider what’s happening to their bones, hearts, or brains when estrogen levels drop. We’ll talk with two medical guests about how menopause can impact and change the body in very surprising ways, offering suggestions for supporting the brain, bones, and heart as we age.

This is the fifth episode of a five-part series designed to take a holistic approach to menopause and demystify the profound effects it can have on your body, mind, and spirit, whatever stage of the journey you’re in. We’ll chat with experts, bust the biggest myths, and crank up the conversation about this natural and normal transition every woman experiences.*
