The Connection Between Alcohol and Menopause

Do you use drinking as your reward for making it to 5 o’clock? Or maybe as a way to self-medicate that hormonal imbalance? I’m back with a podcast fan favorite, Jenn Kautsch aka Sober Sis. Like many of us, she shares how for so long, that was her relationship with alcohol. In this episode, we jump right into the connection between alcohol and menopause and how to break the detox-retox lifestyle. Don’t know what that means? Be sure to give this one a listen to find out!


Jenn started Sober Sis (sober-minded sisters) because she wanted to find other women who wanted to talk about their relationship with drinking without having to wear a label. It’s a place where women can wrestle with this out loud and figure out what works best for them.  The focus is on progress, not perfection which is always the best approach!


My first connecting point with Jenn was through her 21-day reset. I noticed I was having a harder time metabolizing alcohol throughout perimenopause and how disruptive it was to my sleep! The goal of the rest is to get off of autopilot when it comes to pouring that evening glass of wine (or drink of choice) and replace that time with a different way of thinking and being. Interested in trying out Jenn’s 21-day reset? They run every month so jump into the next group here.

I too, struggled in my late 40s when I hit peri-menopause! I was experiencing all those not-so-fun physical changes in my body, as well as mental and emotional fatigue. What worked for me before was not working anymore. 

And the mainstream wellness advice I was following was not for women my age but for women years younger. I also realized very quickly that there is no one formula that works for all women. We are all different and need a customized approach. This aha moment was the first step to my transformation…
