Her program bridges the gaps that exist among the myths and misconceptions about perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause and nutrition. She helps women realize they have a true ally in food when it comes to understanding and living with hormonal changes and the impact they can have on physical, emotional, and mental health.
Myriam also hosts Divine Renewal™ Radio, where she initiates and continues conversations about how food is not only healing but a means to walk the path of menopause with ease, grace, and wisdom.

Introduction for Interviews and Speaking Engagements
Although hormone changes after 40 are a natural part of a woman’s journey, too few understand or appreciate the process. Because society largely stigmatizes menstruation and menopause, women are often denied clear, loving, and educational tools to help them navigate these years of their lives, and too few get the support they need to make that journey.
Myriam’s engaging and informative sessions provide practical and sustainable guidelines and solutions for women to live their best lives in menopause and beyond. She provides women with clear explanations of how every meal, every snack, every beverage they consume, as well as other natural healing factors, can support and promote hormone balance and better physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Sample Interview Questions for Myriam
What are the most pressing concerns of women about perimenopause and menopause?
Why do you believe food is such a critical part of how women can survive and thrive in menopause?
What basic dietary changes do women need to make to live a better life in menopause?
How realistic is it for women to lose weight in menopause?
Why do you believe so many women are misinformed about perimenopause and menopause?
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and I searched and found a very large list of foods that I should not eat. When I made those changes I managed to reach a normal thyroid state but I did not feel calm. I had mood swings. Then when I was searching again, I found Myriam. That’s where my journey began.
I never thought a person could make you feel calm and help you step by step and not let go. It’s been unique to meet this team of people and learn from them.
More than anything, I learned to say no and feel like a woman. When you have children, I think you dedicate yourself to them. That’s not bad but you forget yourself. Now I understand that the physical and emotional parts go hand and hand. Today I am more alive than ever. Thanks
I am 52 years old and although I consider myself a person in good health, perhaps premenopause added to other changes that made me feel a rapid general deterioration in my body. I was getting fat, felt very persistent body aches especially in my knees and eyes, and no matter how much I avoided foods my doctors told me about to take care of my irritable bowel, my swelling after eating was very frequent.
I came to Myriam first for her Smoothies course, and I decided to do the basic course of Nourishing Your Feminine Essence.
With virtually no effort I lost weight and slimmed down my waist. I realized I was creating stress in my life, and now I am choosing for a much fuller and healthier use of time. With the momentum I got from this course, I incorporated daily yoga and meditation, and joint and eye exercises, which are helping me reduce my aches and dryness. The quality of my sleep has improved, and I have more energy all day. I’m better able to cope with my problems and obligations, and I laugh more often.
My greatest benefit I gained from working with you has been that you taught me to listen to my body, to give myself permission to feel my emotions freely. I used to repress and hide them and never let anyone see me cry. This was not good for me, and I lived a life of fear, stress, anguish, and bad moods. Consequently I felt empty, as they say, existential emptiness, and my way out was to eat.
I feel very happy that we met and that I made the decision to take your Nourish Your Feminine Essence program and try the smoothies and infusions. I feel listened to, accompanied in this process of reconnecting my mind and heart with myself. I have to be patient to be in my center, in emotional balance, and let everything flow in the best possible way. Before I was stressed by wanting to follow a diet, and when I didn’t see magical results, and threw in the towel. I know that everything is a domino effect: by drinking enough water, eating healthy, exercising, and having positive thoughts, I connect with my inner being. I relax, I take things calmly, and I do the things that I already know I must do to have a change without excuses. It works if you can get out of that comfort zone, which isn’t comfortable at all because it leaves you feeling bad both physically and emotionally. The inflammation in my abdomen has decreased, my headaches, menopausal ailments, joint pain have decreased, and I am already more aware of what I eat. Today I think about what I eat and whether it will benefit me or not.
