World’s first medically approved menopause health & wellbeing companion launches
In an effort to help those experiencing perimenopause and menopause look holistically at improving their future health, menopause support app balance has introduced balance+, as an extended area of the app bringing a wealth of exclusive content to the platform.
Handpicked by leading menopause specialist Dr Louise Newson, balance+ gives unparalleled access to the best specialists and clinicians in the field, all coming together to help optimise mental health, nutrition, sleep, physical health, sexual health as well as skin and hair.
Designed as the next stage, or in addition to getting treatment, balance+ is a step up for users. Brought by the ORCHA accredited free balance, already downloaded by hundreds of thousands of women in over 150 countries, the same features included in the original app such as personalised symptom trackers, individualised health report and access to a global community are still available for free. However, balance+ subscribers will also be able to access expert advice through videos, recipes, classes and more. These experts include Dr Rebecca Lewis, GP and menopause specialist, Emma Ellice-Flint, clinical nutritionist, Lucy Holtom, yoga teacher, Dr Claire Macaulay, sex specialist, Dr Sajjad Rajpar, consultant dermatologist and Dr Sally Norton, weight loss specialist and medical doctor. All balance+ experts are uniquely placed combining their discipline with specialised knowledge at the intersection of menopause. balance+ also includes monthly live webinars and Q&As with Dr Louise Newson, inviting questions from the community.
“The launch of balance+ comes at a pivotal time to improve health for perimenopausal and menopausal women. We know that everyone experiencing perimenopause and menopause has different needs and that’s why balance+ takes a holistic and personalised approach which really puts the user in control. Working closely with our community to gain valuable insights and feedback has allowed us to make balance+ happen and I thank the community for supporting us with this menopause movement”.Dr Louise Newson, founder of balance
balance+ has a monthly subscription cost of £9.99 a month, inclusive of a complimentary seven-day trial or £89.99 annually. balance believes that evidence-based information that empowers women and helps to facilitate a quicker diagnosis and access to treatment should always be 100% free. Those choosing to subscribe to balance+ for additional features will help support this mission and keep the rest of balance app free, for all.
Our team at the Newson Health Menopause Society encourage our associates and those interested in the peri/menopause and women’s hormone health to experience the balance+ seven-day trial to explore the resources open to its users, and find benefit in them either for yourself or for others.
