Join us on 17th October to celebrate World Menopause Day this month.

To celebrate World Menopause Day this month, we are hosting a menopause event on Tuesday 17th October 2023 for our local community in Kingston where Sylk HQ is based.

Come and get the low down on everything perimenopausal and menopausal so you can navigate this life stage and thrive.  Learn about symptoms which can range from brain fog, memory loss, increased anxiety, low libido, itchy skin, disturbed sleep, flat mood as well as night sweats and hot flushes, to name a few.  Get the latest advice on treatment options including HRT and non hormonal.  Learn what foods can help you balance your hormones and how to improve your pelvic health so you can avoid those OOPS moments!
