Do you want to have a happy and healthy perimenopause and menopause, but have no idea if that’s possible due to all the doom and gloom stories you hear about this stage of a woman’s life?


  • Have you been told HRT is the only solution to reducing any unwanted symptoms but, you don’t you want HRT/can’t go on HRT/have tried HRT and it didn’t help (or made things worse) or, are already on HRT and still suffering with various symptoms?

  • Do you feel confused and worried and about this normal stage of a woman’s life and would love to truly understand what’s happening to your body and mind – especially the more positive stuff that happens too (because there’s lots of noise about the negative stuff)?

  • Would you love to learn various holistic techniques, tips, treatments, foods and supplements that can help support your body through the menopausal transition to help ease/eliminate unpleasant symptoms and increase your energy and vibrancy?


Then you’ll LOVE our Natural Solutions for a Happy, Healthy Menopause.

This retreat is for any woman who wants to explore alternative and holistic options to HRT – because it’s not the only option for you to feel healthier, happier and more hormonally balanced from your 40’s onwards. It’s a day of life-changing lessons from a top women’s coach and hormone expert; a five-star Health Retreat Chef and Health Coach and other guest teacher.


This retreat is for any woman who’s looking to understand more about what is happening to her body through the menopause, and how to support it holistically. If you are confused with all the negative association with the menopause and want to learn holistic techniques and tips to ease unpleasant symptoms, then this is for you.

On the retreat....

We’ll show you how to unlock the power of your body, reclaim your authentic self and understand your journey to and through the menopause. You will learn:

  • What the menopause is and how it can be used to increase your physical and mental health (if you understand it).

  • How best to support your body before, during and after the menopause.

  • How to understand, minimise and get rid of various symptoms associated with the menopause e.g. belly fat, hot flashes, increased rage and anxiety etc.

  • How to best support your body and mind through this powerful female life transition.

  • How to reclaim the best, most authentic and powerful version of yourself during the menopause.

  • How the menopause can help you decide who you want to be in the second half of your life.

  • How the emotional shifts of the menopause can help you let go of past worries and insecurities.

  • Why the world desperately needs the gifts and wisdom of menopausal and post-menopausal women.

  • Important foods to include in your diet that balance hormones, promote gut health, detox your body and strenghen bones.

  • How to minimise weight gain during the perimenopause.

  • Nourishing and empowering meditation and breathwork - science-backed “natural HRT” with our guest teacher. You’ll be guided through a ‘medicinal breathwork’ and meditation session to lower your stress and help you connect with yourself more deeply. Learn how this powerful practice can act as natural HRT.


One day of life-changing lessons from a top women’s coach and hormone expert, a five-star Health Retreat Chef and Health Coach, and other guest teacher.

Hi, we’re Sally and Mary,

(aka ‘Women With Sparkle’ and ‘The Natural Health Chef’) and we help busy women transform their health, balance their hormones, increase their energy and feel and look better. Read about us here


Our superpower is we know how to help women (who usually put themselves last) get incredible shifts in their mental and physical health in a short space of time.


We can help put you back on the path of true, sustainable, sparkling health!


We’ve both been sick and struggling and believed we didn’t have the time, energy or money to feel truly well again so, we know how horrible this can be BUT we also know how to move out of this place. When it comes to supporting busy women with their health so they can feel vibrant, happy and like the best version of themselves again – nobody does it quite like us.


Why not come and be looked after by us. Let us teach you, cook for you and guide you to a new level of health and happiness where you’ll feel the difference in just one day but, be inspired for life.
