125 Changing Your Mind with Hypnotherapy with Sonia Samtani
If you want a therapy that works, try hypnotherapy.  Hypnotherapy is becoming one of the worlds most sort after therapies because of its ability to work deep into our conditioning and affect change very quickly.I call it a no nonsense therapy.  It gets right in there and right out again. In today's episode I had the pleasure of talking to a fellow hypnotherapist about the profound work we do.  Sonia Samtani is CEO of the All About You wellness centre in Hong Kong, she's 2 x TEDX speaker, published author and NLP trainer (and of course, she's a very busy hypnotherapist).In today's episode of The Menopause Mindset Podcast we discuss:🧠 Conclusions that we come to about ourselves based on the messages we received.🧠 The importance of asking why [why = wisdom].🧠 Identifying the triggers that result in a cascade of negative thinking.🧠 The difference between regression therapy and suggestion placement therapy.🧠 Perception filters and how they affects our beliefs.🧠 Where does our conditioning come from?🧠 Fact vs Interpretation.🧠 Problems arise when we just see problems.🧠 How do we change the unhelpful things that we are focused on?🧠 The power of knowing what your objective is.🧠 Why feeling 'normal' after hypnotherapy is a big win.🧠 What stands in the way of people achieving their goals.🧠 Why we get addicted to stress.🧠 Why your inner child's brain is running the show.🧠 What's really behind addictions and symptoms?🧠 Why hypnotherapy is not like stage hypnosis.🧠 Breaking the ancestral wounds of 'lack'.So if you're ready to learn how to change your mind, this episode is for you.Sonia's LinksIG: https://www.instagram.com/soniasamtani_/IG: https://www.instagram.com/allaboutyouwellnesscentre/FB: facebook.com/soniasamtaniltd/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/soniasamtani/Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/SoniaSamtaniLimitedTedX:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuTDqzoAGIQTEDX: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xNCeMMnuc0All About You Wellness Centre Hong Kong: https://www.allaboutyoucentre.com/Sally's LinksBuy Me A Coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/sallygarozzo [Free] Relaxation Hypnosis Recording:  https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsally [Free] How to Make Sleep Your Super Power https://www.sallygarozzo.com/optinsleepwebinar [Free] Sleep Hypnosis Recording: https://bit.ly/sleephypnosisrecording How to Create Phenomenal Self Esteem [£47]:  https://www.sallygarozzo.com/selfesteemMenopause Wellbeing Practitioner [£74.99] https://bit.ly/menowellness Rapid Transformational Therapy [£447]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt Menopause Solution Sessions [£147]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoring The Sleep Super Power Academy [£497] https://www.sallygarozzo.com/sleep Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/sallygarozzomindmen

118 How Menopause Can Help You Reclaim Your Authenticity
Something’s been grinding my gears.  I’m starting to take issue with the so called self development world that does more harm than good in some cases.  If you've seen the Amazon Prime Documentary, The Vow, you'll know what I’m referring to.Having been a self confessed self development junkie since I was 14 years old, I'm now starting to see how this influence can do some damage to our authenticity especially when it comes to being able to navigate the menopause transition in a healthy way.  Authenticity says "Hey you...I like you... be more you.... that feeling you're feeling, that's ok... lean into it, listen to it, respect it, honour it, talk about, slow down."Self development says "Hey you... I like you... but you need to be more X....because that feeling you're feeling is holding you back from something much greater.  That feeling is blocking your success and you want more success don't you?"Just when I thought I'd seen it all, another layer of the onion was peeled back during a confluence of events that have occured over the last 8 weeks.  More experiences, more reading, more working with clients, more transparency, all helping to remove the veil over my eyes.And what I realised is this.  Menopause is the perfect vehicle for us to put the brakes on 'self development' and to accelerate towards authenticity.So if you're ready to drive towards that place called home, this episode is for you.  Buy Kate Codrington's Book Second Spring: https://www.katecodrington.co.uk/second-spring-the-self-care-guide-to-menopause/ Sally’s Links[Free] Relaxation Hypnosis Recording:  https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsally [Free] How to Make Sleep Your Super Power https://www.sallygarozzo.com/optinsleepwebinar [Free] Sleep Hypnosis Recording: https://bit.ly/sleephypnosisrecording How to Create Phenomenal Self Esteem [£47]:  https://www.sallygarozzo.com/selfesteemMenopause Wellbeing Practitioner [£74.99] https://bit.ly/menowellness Rapid Transformational Therapy [£447]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt Menopause Solution Sessions [£147]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoring The Sleep Super Power Academy [£497] https://www.sallygarozzo.com/sleep Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Be a Podcast Guest:  https://singingandhypnosis.as.me/podcastinterview

117 Mast Cell Activation Syndrome with Tracey Reed
If you're curious about the place inside of us where the mind and body come together, then look no further than the fascinating subject of Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.  When we take a look at MCAS what we're REALLY looking at, is the junction between the immune system and the nervous system.  Fascinating though it is, symptoms of MCAS can be incredibly annoying and often difficult to make sense of, and to top it all off, at menopause we become a little more susceptible to our Mast Cells becoming agitated leading to this pick and mix of symptoms.  My guest today is Tracey Reed who is the co-founder of Histamine Haven along with Luka Symmons.  She is a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant, an instructor at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and the recipient of the 2018 Clinical Excellence Award.In this episode we discuss: 🤓 What is Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)?🤓 Why a typical healthy diet might not be the best course of action for someone with MCAS.🤓 The difference between histamine intolerance and MCAS.🤓 Symptoms of MCAS.🤓 How do you know if you've got it?🤓 How might menopause heighten MCAS?🤓 Triggers of MCAS.🤓 How environment can activate certain genes [aka epigenetics].🤓 Navigating your way around a low histamine diet.🤓 MCAS being the junction between the immune system and the nervous system.🤓 How pharmaceuticals helped Tracey become a more intuitive eater. 🤓 Types of pharmaceuticals that can help with MCAS.🤓 Getting your life back.So if you're ready to get some next level learning, this episode is for you. Tracey's Linkswww.histaminehaven.comwww.instagram.com/histaminehavenSally’s Links[Free] Relaxation Hypnosis Recording:  https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsally [Free] How to Make Sleep Your Super Power https://www.sallygarozzo.com/optinsleepwebinar [Free] Sleep Hypnosis Recording: https://bit.ly/sleephypnosisrecording How to Create Phenomenal Self Esteem [£47]:  https://www.sallygarozzo.com/selfesteemMenopause Wellbeing Practitioner [£74.99] https://bit.ly/menowellness Rapid Transformational Therapy [£447]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt Menopause Solution Sessions [£147]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoring The Sleep Super Power Academy [£497] https://www.sallygarozzo.com/sleep Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Be a Podcast Guest:  https://singingandhypnosis.as.me/podcastinterview

116 Breaking Through Auto Immune Issues with VJ Hamilton
Why is menopause a risk factor for increased auto immune issues?  In today's episode we'll find out.  My guest today, VJ Hamilton, was just seven years old when she first discovered a patch of alopecia at the back of her head.  While there was a genetic component to this, during her adult life, her symptoms become worse, ranging from joint pain to extreme fatigue and psoriasis. Unable to resign herself to the fact that there was nothing she could do, she decided to take matters into her own hands.  Today, after 7 years, she lives symptom free. VJ is a autoimmune nutritionist and in our conversation together we discussed:🤓 How our hormone changes can make trigger auto immune issues.🤓 Symptoms of auto immune issues.🤓 How a functional approach can help you become symptom free.🤓 Swapping handbags for health.🤓 How to keep healthy practices up for the long term.🤓 The genetic component of auto immune issues.🤓 Why the immune system over reacts.🤓 Why DNA testing is useful (and you only need to do it once).🤓 The effect of Adverse Childhood Experiences on our immune response.🤓 Why adding potent powders as a first port of call can be helpful.🤓 Stabilising blood sugar.🤓 Why probiotics might not be the answer. 🤓 Stool tests for leaky gut.🤓 Household and airborne toxins.🤓 Alcohol - yes or no?So if you're ready to create a safe internal environment for your cells, then this 1 hour episode is for you.

109 Breaking Through Learned Helplessness
Why do we keep going back for more s**t even when it goes against what we want for ourselves?The answer?LEARNED HELPLESSNESS.Case in point. Yesterday I was sat on a train up to London complaining about the noisy youth who were disrespecting young girls and playing their music really loud.  I was banging on about this for at least 30 minutes until I realised I had a choice to move.  But I only did so 5 minutes before our stop.  I mean, why did I leave it so long? In today's episode of The Menopause Mindset Podcast I'm going to enlighten you as to what learned helplessness is, where it comes from and how deconstructing it plays a huge part in aiding our menopause transition. So if you're ready to un-bind yourself this episode is for you.Links in the podcast:https://study.com/academy/lesson/how-seligmans-learned-helplessness-theory-applies-to-human-depression-and-stress.html Sally’s Links[Free] Relaxation Hypnosis Recording:  https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsally [Free] How to Make Sleep Your Super Power https://www.sallygarozzo.com/optinsleepwebinar [Free] Sleep Hypnosis Recording: https://bit.ly/sleephypnosisrecording How to Create Phenomenal Self Esteem [£47]:  https://www.sallygarozzo.com/selfesteemMenopause Wellbeing Practitioner [£74.99] https://bit.ly/menowellness Rapid Transformational Therapy [£447]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt Menopause Solution Sessions [£147]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoring The Sleep Super Power Academy [£497] https://www.sallygarozzo.com/sleep Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Be a Podcast Guest:  https://singingandhypnosis.as.me/podcastinterview

107 The Long Game with Dr Alison Grimston
Recently I witnessed a menopause practitioner being derogatory about the DUTCH test online.It shocked me but ultimately everyone is entitled to their opinion. What I found difficult though was the unwillingness to broaden their perspective and listen to all sides of the story.  Any contradictory opinion was simply shut down with a response such as 'I stand by my original opinion.' This kind of thinking is problematic for reasons you'll learn in today's podcast episode. Doctor Allie Grimston is an NHS GP, a Functional Medicine Doctor and a spiritual healer.  What I love about Dr Allie, is her ability to take a broad view of the whole system in a way that considered and compassionate (something that was lacking in this particular online conversation).  In our conversation we cover:😊 Coping with the conflict that arises between allopathic medicine and functional medicine.😊 The restrictions of The National Health Service.😊 Gluten and Thyroid Health.😊 Internal stress. 😊 What functional medicine is [root cause work].😊 The difference between Body Identical HRT and Bio Identical HRT.😊 Lab testing.😊 What is the DUTCH test.😊 What is oestrogen dominance.😊 Your vagina - it might not be thrush. 😊 The microbiome (not just in the gut).😊Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome. 😊 Bio Individuality.😊Energy healing, psychic surgery and spiritual medicine. So if you're interested in taking a broader view of menopause and you're open to leaning into the bigger picture, this episode is for you. Doctor Allie's Linkshttps://doctorallie.com/https://www.facebook.com/DrAlisonGrimstonhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/menopausedralliehttps://twitter.com/Doctor_Alliehttp://youtube.com/c/AlisonGrimstonhttps://www.instagram.com/doctorallie1/Sally’s Links[Free] Relaxation Hypnosis Recording:  https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsally [Free] How to Make Sleep Your Super Power https://www.sallygarozzo.com/optinsleepwebinar [Free] Sleep Hypnosis Recording: https://bit.ly/sleephypnosisrecording How to Create Phenomenal Self Esteem [£47]:  https://www.sallygarozzo.com/selfesteemMenopause Wellbeing Practitioner [£74.99] https://bit.ly/menowellness Rapid Transformational Therapy [£447]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt Menopause Solution Sessions [£147]: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoring The Sleep Super Power Academy [£497] https://www.sallygarozzo.com/sleep Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Be a Podcast Guest:  https://singingandhypnosis.as.me/podcastinterview

106 Breaking The Chains of Anxiety
Is your mental health suffering as a result of the HRT shortage?  This shortage is incredibly invalidating as a woman or person who takes it and I've no doubt is rooted in hidden misogyny.   Needless to say, anxiety is on the rise as a result but ....Now might be a good time to introduce you to a radical idea.And that's the idea that anxiety is not caused by an oestrogen and progesterone deficiency ALONE.The causes of anxiety are multi layered and therefore require a variety of approaches to manage successfully, not just HRT.Anxiety was one of my most debilitating symptoms of peri menopause. I still have my days, but I no longer suffer chronically and one of the main reasons why is because…I RADICALLY CHANGED MY PERSPECTIVE & DID A LOT OF EMOTIONAL EXCAVATION. It was a slow process but I had to start somewhere.I’d like to give you that starting point right now inside this weeks podcast episode:Breaking The Chains of Anxiety.I’ll show you everything I learnt from being a recovered anxiety sufferer and helping my midlife clients as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.In this episode I’ll show you how to:✅ Stop acting from fear (so that you can break the cycle of looping thoughts)✅ Recognise how and when to do things differently (so that you can feel empowered knowing that you are in control)✅ Learn what to do to weed out the roots of anxietyIf you feel it’s time to improve your coping skills, embrace uncertainty and mobilise yourself into feeling better, then, come on over. Sally’s LinksFree Relaxation Hypnosis Recording:  https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsallyRapid Transformational Therapy: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt1:2:1 Menopause Solution Sessions: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoringThe Sleep Super Power Academy: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/sleepInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Be a Podcast Guest:  https://singingandhypnosis.as.me/podcastinterview

103 The Histamine Link with Luka Symons
"I don't feel safe" That's the sound of a body who's histamine levels can't be regulated properly.  Yeah, that was a penny drop moment for me too!  I had no idea that fear, stress and anxiety stimulated histamine and prevented it from being eliminated properly. As we know, at menopause, very often our stress hormones are sky high. But there's something else that triggers all those sneezy, swelly type symptoms by just looking at a glass of wine. It's to do with declining progesterone and oestrogen dominance.  All will be revealed. My guest today Luka Symons, is the co-founder of Histamine Haven, a global community that helps people with an ovarian system deal with chronic health concerns that might be to do with histamine.  She's funny and so informative.In today's episode we discuss: 🤧 The link between histamine and anxiety🤧 Why histamine is usually high in a body that doesn't feel safe🤧 The link between gut health and histamine intolerance🤧 What is histamine intolerance and why it's a misleading phrase🤧 Symptoms of histamine intolerance🤧 Why regulating histamine isn't as easy as taking a DAO supplement🤧 Foods that are high in histamine🤧 How histamine could affect our sleep🤧 The role that histamine plays in our soft tissue🤧 Why our kitchens and our communities need to be our allies🤧 The best nutrients to support your regulation of histamine🤧 Anti histamine tablets  - yes and no🤧 Why healing from histamine means healing the humanSo if you're ready to connect the dots, this episode is for you.

102 Deep Organisational Change with Nik Davis
Hello?  Do you SEE me?  If the menopause has made you feel invisible you are not alone.  The latest stats show that over a million have either quit their jobs or are thinking of doing so because of menopause. This is a tragic and unnecessary loss of talent.When organisations fail to address menopause they are basically saying, you are not important to us and that hurts.It really hurts.My guest today Nik Davis used to be a management consultant helping companies with organisational change.  When menopause hit her she decided to turn her hand to writing, assisting people with death and change and sustainability.  I think she's marvellously eccentric and speaks out bravely.We talk about...   😌 Having a voice and using it for the greater good.  😌 The consequences of not feeling safe enough to tell your truth.  😌 Is it ok to share during the raw-ness of a process? 😌 How fiction increases empathy and how the lack of it decreases empathy.  😌 How seeing an endocrinologist helped my guest during her menopause.  😌 Why workplaces should pay for their staff with ovarian systems to see an endocrinologist.  😌 Why not all anxiety and depression responds to anti depressants.  😌 Changing what we expect of ourselves during menopause.  😌 Managing our days differently.  😌 Menopause - how it picks at the scabs and forces you inwards.  😌 Viewing menopause as a journey that is constantly reviewed.  😌 Powerful suggestions for organisational change.  So if you're ready for this wonderfully invigorating conversation and if you're feeling the pull to steer the change in your own organisation, then this episode is for you.

101 Reclaiming Pleasure with Mangala Holland
What does sex and the Chinese language have in common?  Answer:  You can learn them both.When it comes to pleasure, did you know that many of us have a lid on our capacity to harbour it?  Our pleasure set point can diminish with age, unless we decide to reclaim it, work with it and expand it.  But many of us don't realise that's even an option.   Lucky for you, my guest today, Mangala Holland, reveals all.  She's a female and vulva owner's sexuality coach and she believes that expanding our capacity for pleasure deeply heals the past and is also a rebellious form of activism (my kind of activism 😉).  In today's conversation we talk about:  How might sexual disconnection present itself?  Taking a trauma informed approach to sexuality coaching.  What happens inside sexuality coaching?  What does 'staying in the body' actually mean?  Why we might push pleasure away sub consciously?  Dogma free sexuality coaching.  Knowing what turns you on.  Different types of arousal.  Pleasure as a form of activism.  The orgasm gap.  Relearning and reclaiming pleasure even during menopause.  Cervical orgasms.So if you're ready to consider re-opening to the idea of pleasure, or you want to able to harbour more of it, this episode is for you.

100 Divorcing a Narcissist with Diana Jordan
Am I going mad?  That's the question on many women's minds who are struggling to leave narcissistic relationships.  Trigger warning - the content in todays podcast might stir up a few emotions so only listen if you're feeling strong and ready to fight the good fight.  My guest today is an ex family solicitor who helps people struggling to leave abusive relationships and litigate in person (that means, attend divorce court without a solicitor). She says, that when it comes to divorce, women are blamed for EVERYTHING and she believes women would be ill advised to mention the menopause as part of court proceedings especially when children are involved.  My answer to that was "but surely that's because men and lawyers are not educated properly on the menopause?"  "If they knew that low tolerance to stress and mood swings was caused by an oestrogen and progesterone deficiency, might they have more compassion and stop blaming the personality?"The answer to that is challenging and you'll need to listen to the episode to find out more.  Diana Jordan is a kind and wise soul who is extremely passionate about helping people divorce narcissists. Things we talk about: ➡️ Why there are many more litigants in person these days.➡️ Why it's not that easy to just 'marry well' in the first place.➡️ What is a narcissist.➡️ Why narcissists are so hard to divorce.➡️ Best practice if you want to divorce a narcissist.➡️ How 'contact at all costs' might be harmful to children of a narcissistic parent. ➡️ Why women are not believed. ➡️ How things are changing for the better. ➡️ Pre Nups, Post Nups and short marriages.➡️ How the new divorce law might affect you if you're trying to divorce a narcissist. This conversation is for you if you're in a situation where you need this advice; if you know someone that needs this advice or you're curious to learn more about the assault course that is the legal system, narcissists, women and the menopause.Diana's Links:https://dealingwithdivorce.co.uk/https://www.facebook.com/DealingwithDivorcehttps://twitter.com/DwDivorcehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/dianacjordan/Research by Karin Walker and Supriya McKennahttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Divorcing-Narcissist-lure-loss-law/dp/191630236XSally’s LinksHow to Create Phenomenal Self Esteem:  https://www.sallygarozzo.com/selfesteemFree Relaxation Hypnosis Recording:  https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsallyRapid Transformational Therapy: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt1:2:1 Menopause Solution Sessions: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoringThe Sleep Super Power Academy: https://www.sallygarozzo.com/sleepBecome a Menopause Holistic and Wellbeing Practitioner:  https://book.gatewayworkshops.co.uk/products/menopause-holistic-wellbeing-practitioner-diplomaInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/sallygarozzomindmentor Be a Podcast Guest:  https://singingandhypnosis.as.me/podcastinterview

99 Cyclical Living with Carly Proctor
Over the years we've come up with many euphemisms to describe it...🩸 The painters are round 🩸 Aunt Flow has arrived 🩸 It's rag time  Many of these are said lightly and in jest, but the truth is, we find it hard to say the real thing.    "I'm menstruating".    Silence always perpetuates shame, which in turn perpetuates the problems that women and people with ovaries often face.   Migraines, PMT, digestive issues, histamine issues, painful periods, heavy periods, sore breasts, extreme tiredness....... all of this remains unless we can open up about it. Lucky for us, things are changing thanks to the number of menstrual cycle educators and coaches that are springing up.  That includes my guest today. Carly Proctor is a Menstrual Cycle Coach, a Nutritional Therapist and (God love her) an ICU nurse in London and I spoke to her about all things cycle related.   ➡️ Coming off the pill. ➡️ Cycle tracking - how to do it.  ➡️ The seasons of the cycle. ➡️ Having a cycle and living in a man's world. ➡️ What we can learn from our PMT. ➡️ What are our hormones actually doing in our cycle. ➡️ Why ovulation isn't always amazing for some people. ➡️ How cycle tracking actually helps our periods.  So if you're ready to gain lots of menstrual cycle awareness with the potential of improving your menstrual experience each month, then this episode is for you.  Carly's Links:Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/carly_nourishandflo/Website: https://nourishandflo.com/ Sally's LinksFree Masterclass:  Breaking The Chains of Anxiety:  www.sallygarozzo.com/breakinganxietyFree Relaxation Hypnosis Recording: https://bit.ly/relaxationwithsally 1:2:1 Menopause Solution Sessions:  www.sallygarozzo.com/mentoring Rapid Transformational Therapy:  www.sallygarozzo.com/rtt Become a Menopause Holistic and Wellbeing Practitioner:  https://book.gatewayworkshops.co.uk/products/menopause-holistic-wellbeing-practitioner-diploma

I was hanging by a thread, like a piece of over rip fruit about to fall from the tree and go splat on the floor.  Heavy and lethargic.  No energy to lift a finger let alone think about what to cook for dinner. Energy is a precious resource, but the good news is, it's renewable, unlike time.  Once time is gone, it's gone, you can't get it back but energy can be renewed.  All we have to do is plug back in. But how?This episode of The Menopause Mindset Podcast is a demonstration of how that is possible.... literally. The entire episode was improvised from start to finish, not because I was lazy and didn't want to write any notes, but because I've been able to generate so much energy over the last couple of days, my mind was clear and my heart was full. Since a friend pulled me up on my waining energy levels, I've been making a concerted effort to problem solve this issue and I'm delighted to bring you my musings. In this episode we discuss: ➡️ Why seeking motivation will have you barking up the wrong tree.➡️ Why this one thing is the elixir of life. ➡️ Why we don't just get energy from our sleep. So if you're ready to plug back in to the circuitry of life, then this episode is for you. Links:The Rechargeable Breath:  https://youtu.be/Gyjy0oreJJU Breaking The Chains of Anxiety - Free Masterclass:  www.sallygarozzo.com/breakinganxiety
