Meet Vandghie!
Vandghie qualified as a Dietitian in 2008 and started specialising in women’s hormonal health after battling imbalanced hormones through perimenopause. For 5 years, multiple doctors and specialist visits and lots of frustration, she reverted back to the research to find the answers for herself. This research radically changed her health in a very short space of time and she’s gone on to support women through perimenopause with her podcast, The Perimenopause Podcast and digital coaching programs.

She’s passionate about helping women to make their 30s and 40s their best decades yet by learning how to Thrive Through Perimenopause, without prescription drugs and restrictive diets.

“Let this be the day where you realize what I've been going through is not normal. The fact that it's common or it's common in my family doesn't mean it has to be my normal and these things that I can do about it to change this. I think that's the big thing. And then trying to pay attention to your body and then finding someone that specializes in women's health, functional health, in other words, not treating with medicine but helping you to support your body for healing itself. Find someone that can do this with you, give you the education that you need and support you through that process.”
