Kate Muir is a journalist, author, documentary producer, activist and an advocate for women going through menopause.
She’s the author of the book ‘Everything You Need to Know About Menopause, but were too afraid to ask’, which pulls no punches in shining a light on the inequalities and shameful lack of understanding when it comes to women’s reproductive health.
She also wrote and produced the ground-breaking documentary ‘Sex, Myths and the Menopause’ presented by TV personality and menopause warrior Davina McCall.
In today’s episode I’m chatting with Kate about what led her to write a book that, quite frankly, has disrupted the established norms regarding perimenopause and the menopause transition.
Kate talks about her own ‘car crash’ of a menopause and why a lack of education and understanding within the medical world is preventing way too many women from accessing HRT – a simple, cost effective treatment that replaces our natural hormones and which has been scientifically proven to prevent heart disease, bone disease and brain disease.
Kate is on a mission to create a menopause revolution and with her forensic level of journalistic tenacity, I have absolutely no doubt she will succeed.
