Trinidad – With society continuing to place great emphasis on youthfulness, for many women, aging presents its own unique midlife crisis.Â Desiree ArnoldÂ understands firsthand the emotional and physical toil on women upon reaching their 40’s and beyond. A holistic practitioner, naturopath and the founder of Lifely Up, a web portal dedicated to menopausal transition, Arnold wanted to nurture women through a passage that she feels should be celebrated not vilified. She took it upon herself to consult female experts from around the world for their insight and advice and theÂ “Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit” is the result of her efforts. A free online conference set to launchÂ October 23rd through November 2ndÂ the “Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit 2018” is available atÂ www.
Shifting the perception of aging, midlife and menopausal transition from a negative outlook to an exciting journey is a rapidly emerging concept in this new day of women reclaiming their power. Older women, in particular, are garnering media attention for feats no longer just designated to a younger generation. TheÂ “Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit 2018” presents a wonderful opportunity for women to learn, bond and share in the privacy of their homes as Arnold interviews 22 professionals, releasing two new interviews per day over an 11-day period. Female nutritionists, doctors, herbalists, holistic therapists, authors, life coaches, entrepreneurs, hormone experts, and physical trainers have all been gathered to lend credence to the joy of seasoned womanhood.Â
“Living decades beyond midlife is still a newfangled phenomenon that many of us are now embracing. But for many of us, the thought of living beyond 50 for another 30, 40, or more years is shaded by fears of chronic disease, high medical bills and even living alone. Menopausal transition prepares the body, mind, and soul for that third stage in our lives where we actually can become masters of life as empresses and goddesses. The ‘Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit 2018’ presents theÂ opportunity to take action now and learn to understand and treat ourselves in ways that favor long healthy meaningful years and decades, to which we can gracefully look forward to,” explains Arnold, who was born and grew up in Switzerland and has lived for the past 23 years on the island state of Trinidad and Tobago.
