The “3rd age” is the time given to the Perimenopause, usually starting in late 30s and moving through your 40s, when hormones start to change and you may feel like you don’t recognise your body or the way it is behaving anymore.

Perimenopause and Menopause are not a disease, nor are they each an event; they are a process, a journey of transition and transformation which can last between 8 and 16 years. When your “personal body bank account” is in credit, it’s a time you should move through well in body, mind and spirit.

What many women experience

The problem is that most of us are severely overdrawn in our personal body bank accounts due to the lives we lead, the foods we eat, the thoughts we have about ourselves, life and anything else which draws on our emotional funds. And so you may feel that your body shape has changed and you can’t seem to control your weight anymore, or you don’t seem to get the sleep you crave, or have the energy you are used to for no particular reason that you can point to. Perhaps your moods are changing and you feel frustrated that you are just not in the flow!

The good news is that there are ways to regain control

The Reviva programme will aim to improve your health by nourishing your mind, body and spirit following a thorough screening. You will learn strategies to re-balance your body through nutrition, gain fitness and energy again, and help tone up where you thought all hope was lost!
