Show Notes

If you're one of the estimated 40-60% of women who experience sleep changes in perimenopause or menopause, you're going to want to tune in to this episode! We discuss why sleep changes so much as our hormones change, why falling asleep and staying asleep aren't always the same thing, and the solutions we should be exploring to prioritize getting a full night's rest.  We also cover the topic of meal timing, and what you should be eating to get more zzzs.

Dr. Leigha Saunders is a naturopathic doctor obsessed with all things sleep. In her waking hours, you can find her on a mission to help other women gain energy, balance their moods, regulate hormones and sleep deep at night - particularly as they navigate hormone changes from PMS to menopause. 

Her goal is to help women reclaim their rest so they can do what sets their soul on fire during the day. Leigha's ultimate mission is to help women chase their dreams, not exhaustion! 

Outside of work, you can find Leigha on her paddle board, under one of her mom's homemade quilts with a coffee or tea (depending on the time of day, of course!), soaking in her hot tub or playing fire rescue with her son.
