This month, we were excited to host two webinars, with two brand new talkhealth experts. 

Firstly, Dr Pilippa Kaye – who you might have seen on your TV screens – shared all her expertise when it comes to the menopause in an exclusive webinar ‘The M Word’. In the 30-minute long deep dive, Dr Kaye explores the stigmas that exist around The Change and management techniques for symptoms including hot flushes, mental health consequences, and bran fog.

Then, Lisa Lamb – AKA The Night Ninja – jumped on the talkhealth airwaves to to help parents living with difficult sleepers. At the event, the sleep expert from Childs Farm reframed our thinking around parent versus children-led sleep, and got us thinking about putting ourselves first. Here’s the recording if you missed it:

At the end of the month, people affected by multiple sclerosis marked MS Awareness Week. To help people touch base with their condition, we gathered loads of great talkhealth resources. From our Support Programme to patient stories, and a deep dive into oxygen therapy, you can access all of the content below:

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been living with MS for a while, the programme is also useful for anyone caring for someone with MS. We’ll be exploring everything from fatigue management to financial benefits.

Managing multiple sclerosis can be tricky – there’s so much information out there that it’s hard to know where to begin! Our support programme is designed to help you navigate every part of life, whether that’s getting your MS team together, having a conversation at work about your changing needs, or looking at the role diet can play in fatigue management. 

Every week, you’ll receive one or two PDFs to download containing easy-to-digest, practical information. Everything has been written by talkhealth and medical experts.

When our tissues get damaged, so do the capillaries that are in them. This means that oxygenated blood can’t reach these areas of damage, so they heal slowly or don’t recover at all. That’s why oxygen therapy is thought to be beneficial for the management of the symptoms and tissue damage experienced by people living with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions.
