Teresa Isabel DiasMenopausED - Pharmacist and Menopause Practitioner helping women navigate the change Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I enjoy taking care of people. I have a lot of practice at it, I’ve been a pharmacist and working in health care for over 20 years!
I realized there’s a void in the health care system when it comes to the care and support of women in their midlife years and especially during the menopause transition, and I set out to fill this gap – I became a Certified Menopause Practitioner through NAMS*.
I help women going through the menopause transition. I educate women about what’s going on in their bodies and mind, and I help them to make informed decisions about their lifestyle and treatment options to improve their quality of life.
Menopause is not a disease, it is a natural event, and all women will go through menopause!
During perimenopause (the years leading up to menopause-last menstrual period), which may start in late 30s or early 40s, some women experience irregular periods, mood swings, low libido, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, poor concentration, memory issues, aches and pains, and more.
Many women are unprepared for menopause and suffer in silence believing they are the only one and there’s no relief. But that’s not so.
You are not te only one! And there’s help! I can help you!
I provide one-on-one consultations, in-person and online.
I deliver workshops on several topics related to the menopause transition, disease prevention and healthy aging.
I facilitate Lunch & Learns in the workplace
In 2019 I started the WHIM (Women’s Health In Midlife) Network for women 40+ because I strongly believe women do better when they are well-informed, educated, prepared, and supported by other women facing similar challenges.
With a WHIM Network membership you get access to monthly in-person meetings in Toronto, a monthly online meeting through Zoom, a monthly newsletter with pertinent information about women’s health, and access to my closed Facebook Group MenopausEDucation. You can become a member here https://menopaused.org/en/whim/
Induced menopause happens when women have their ovaries removed by surgery, or their function destroyed by some treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation, for certain cancers. In these women the change is abrupt and the sudden drop in estrogen is responsible for many physical, emotional and cognitive changes.
