  1. Menopausal Brain Fog: How to Think Clearly Again

    Comment
    Dr Ghazala Aziz-Scott, specialist in integrative women’s health and bioidentical hormone balancing for the Marion Gluck Clinic, explores the menopause and associated brain fog that many women experience. Women in the menopausal age group are rocketing and “rocking it” in the workforce so being fabulous after 50 includes our brain health and retaining clarity and focus of mind. But does menopausal “brain fog” toss us out of the frying pan into the fire? In reality, 60% of women go through some midlife cognitive impairment, the most common being memory loss or forgetfulness. Misplacing your keys or phone is one thing, however, when it also impacts learning ability, information retention, goal setting and organisational skills, even simple tasks can feel challenging. Let’s not forget...
  2. How To Manage Weight Gain When Menopausal

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marion Gluck Dr Marion Gluck, Founder of The Marion Gluck Clinic explains why weight gain is common during the Menopause and how women can go about managing their weight.  As you get older, it is not unusual that maintaining your weight becomes more difficult. Weight gain during menopause is one particularly common issue that we see at the Marion Gluck Clinic, and whilst it’s not an inevitable symptom of menopause it is one of the most visible. Menopause is a natural transition for all women and relates to the end of a women’s fertility. Although often referred to as one phase, this time of your life is split into two periods. Perimenopause usually takes place anywhere from 40 years old and encompasses the time that...
  3. Menopausal and feeling down? The link between mental health and hormones

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marion Gluck Dr Marion Gluck, founder of The Marion Gluck Clinic, explores the link between mental health and hormones, and while for women going through the menopause feeling low can be a common symptom, it doesn’t need to be the case!   Whilst it is completely normal that everyone has moments that they feel low or down, especially if they are dealing with difficult circumstances or events, it is important to make the distinction between this and depression. The latter is a condition which requires appropriate treatment and is a state of ongoing low mood irrespective of circumstances that can lead to feelings of pessimism, despair and an inability to cope. Those who suffer from depression find that it often affects many areas of their lives,...

  7. Online Dating over 50: How I Rescued My Sister from a Romance Scam Criminal

    Comment
    Article By Shelley Frost I didn’t want to believe it. I pretended like everything was fine. But when my sister’s online boyfriend told her to call him King and he will call her Queen, I finally accepted that she was caught in a romance scam.   Why did this little detail pull the trigger for me to begin an investigation? I was guessing that some of these scammers juggle multiple victims. The chances that he will mistakenly say the name of one of his ladies while talking to another is too risky. Having his women respond to the name Queen ensures that he won’t screw up anytime soon, and the money keeps flowing.   But at the time when I deduced her guy was a bad guy, I knew very little about...
  8. Relationships over 50: 7 surprising relationship lessons you can learn from movies 

    Comment
    Article by Dawud Gurevitch Whether you’re a filmophile, a filmophobe or somewhere in-between, movies can do much more than simply entertain us. Yes, the film industry exists primarily for this reason in exchange for our Netflix membership or our cinema ticket fee (before the pandemic) but did you realise that some movies can teach us surprising lessons about life and relationships? In this article I touch upon seven popular films that each reveal a different take on love and life in all its glory, which doesn’t mean that everything you will see and hear in them will be “sunshine and rainbows” as my wife likes to call it, but will mean that overall you get a realistic view of some of the very things we live for: love, laughter,...
