I’m writing this week’s email from the passenger seat of our SUV complete with cartop-carrier loaded with skis. We’re driving back to Seattle after spending the weekend in Utah, house hunting. Here is the view outside my window.
In March, my husband and I are moving out of the fabulous lake cabin we’ve lived in for the last three years. It’s bittersweet – my friend who owns the house is diving into her dream remodel and we’re so excited for her.
For us, we’re on the hunt for our next home. Will it be along the lakeshores of Seattle, WA? Will it be in the snowy mountains of Utah? Over the past few years, we have had a foothold in each location, and we have a spiritual connection to both.
So, lots of personal change for me; but what's also changing is how women are taking control of their health in 2021.
Kudos to many of you who have booked your annual “menopause appointment” with our telehealth team. Appointments are up 168% from the previous month and we still have room for more.
Just as many of you are changing up life with a membership to HealthFix. We affectionately refer to HealthFix as our “3-month menopause liberation membership”. It doesn't have to be only 3 months – you can be a member for as long as you want concierge access to our team of dietitians, coaches and doctors. But, we often tell women that it takes 3 months of working with our team on lifestyle changes and possibly medication to feel relief and “liberation” from the tight grip of peri or post menopause related symptoms.
With permission, I am sharing an email I received from a woman this week that made my heart do flips...
“I have finally gotten up the courage to start on my Gennev journey! There are two reasons I want to do this: one is for my own health, and the other is that my circle of female friends are approaching me about what they need to do about perimenopause. Being in the healthcare field and a scientist, they are turning to me for advice and I want to be able to provide useful resources for them”.
So, it’s happening. Women helping women and women helping themselves. Menopause will always be part of our lives, but it doesn’t have to rule them.
If you haven’t yet found the courage to start your Gennev journey, or you’re not sure whether a HealthFix membership or an “annual menopause appointment” is right for you? Send us an email to email@example.com with “HELP” and our patient coordinator will confidentially follow up and talk you through the options.
Consider us your partner in health.
Have a fabulous week...and make it happen!
Jill Angelo, Co-Founder and CEO, Gennev
