Teresa Walkinshaw: "Don't Let HRT Hold You Back"

Meet Teresa Walkinshaw.

She is 53 years old.

Teresa is a qualified MP Specialist and Champion Figure Competitor.

She has also experienced menopause and been taking Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) consistently for the last 3 years.

What is hormone replacement therapy?

HRT, also known as hormone therapy (HT) or menopausal hormone therapy (MHT), is medication containing the hormones that a woman’s body stops producing after menopause.

HRT can be used to treat menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats, aches and pains, sleep disturbance and memory loss as well as many other uncomfortable side-effects associated with a decline in oestrogen.

While there are many benefits to taking HRT, there also disadvantages such as unwanted weight-gain, bloating and nausea. For many women, the decision to take HRT is a very personal one.

However, for Teresa the benefits of taking HRT far out-weighed the negatives. She is the first to admit she has experienced her fair share of menopausal symptoms and could have easily used these as reasons to give up and quit. But instead, she made the decision to focus on improving the only two things she could control (diet and exercise). So she went looking for a program that would give her the health and vitality she had always craved.

Enter Metabolic Precision. After twelve months of following MP to the letter, Teresa recently stepped on stage in September 2015 at the NABBA/WFF Bendigo Classic and was crowned overall figure champion. 

Not only that, but in her words she was “the healthiest and happiest she has felt in years”, and credits the Metabolic Precision program with finally finding a place of balance and harmony in her life.

I decided to sit down with Teresa and interview her about her experiences with HRT.
