Show #370 Chinese Medicine and the Perimenopause Transition with Dr Keri Krieger


About this show:

Dr Keri Krieger, a doctor of Chinese Medicine and acupuncturist with over 20 years of experience, and I met when I was half naked on a treatment table at a retreat. I’ve loved the energy she brings to the health space ever since. Today, she invites us to explore perimenopause as the opportunity of a lifetime to prune away all that doesn’t serve us, tune into our truth to our core, and support this period of great change with good humour,  vulnerability, and open dialogue. We discuss: 


  • Perimenopause and menopause as medical conditions to ‘treat’ – let’s broaden beyond the view of this phase being a condition. 
  • Chinese Medicine sees perimenopause as one of the 3 of life’s ‘Golden Opportunities’. 
  • Getting the people who love you onboard through your period of change. 
  • Food – the best foods to support your system as your digestion capacity decreases
  • Helpful pressure points and herbal support in teas and supplements
  • Dating during this phase and the stories we tell ourselves
  • Perimenopause in our workplaces – a challenge, as well as an opportunity to hone our genius.


And more. I hope you find it uplifting and soothing, as we both did while recording it.
