Two interesting YouTube videos caught our attention this week. The first provides a straightforward, medical explanation of the menopause and its “bothersome” symptoms. It’s from Health Channel TV a YouTube channel with 183,000 subscribers. Here’s how their About page describes their videos:
We make complex medical information easy to understand with 2D and 3D animations checked by medical specialists. In less than 3 minutes per video you learn about your cholesterol or about don’t & do’s when you have a cold sores or how the orgasm works for example!
The second video, from DeAnna Lam, offers a more spiritual approach. Lam, who held a workshop in London this weekend, describes the menopause as a the time in a woman’s life for her to “become her power.” On her website’s About page Lam describes herself as a “Womb Visionary” and
A recognized world expert in Menstrual Empowerment, and a pioneer in helping women reclaim the Spiritual Strength hidden Menstruation & Menopause, and Embody their Wisdom!
Both videos offer support for women at a time when it’s important to understand our experiences and feel less alone. There is no “right way” to undergo menopause. No one size fits all approach. Once you’ve landed on either the Health Channel TV or DeAnna Lam’s videos, keep clicking. Keep exploring. There is a wealth of information out there: factual/practical and emotional/spiritual. Find your path. Discover what works for you.
Whatever you find, as always, we hope you’ll join the discussion on our Facebook page so we might all be enriched by it. All perspectives—whether scientific, spiritual, or somewhere in between—are welcome.
