Menopause Basics – Herbs

What if there was a magic pill for menopause...


Herbs are the closest thing you'll find.  Herbs are like the icing on the cake.  Once you have the cake, there's nothing better, or more magical or wonderful feeling than the icing.  

So if you've gotten started adding the right foods into your diet with Menopause Basics: What to Eat - and now you want maximum relief from menopausal symptoms fast -  you're ready for herbs.  (Those foods give your body  the building blocks it need for the herbs to to do their thang sister!)

Because sometimes the body just needs some help.

You're so close

But you can be:

  • Eating right, exercising like never before - and still not losing weight
  • Meditating and deep breathing till your lightheaded and still waking up sweating
  • Still swinging from happy to crying to yelling in the blink of an eye.. 
  • And, yup, still way too hot with hot flashes and still sweating...

It's so frustrating, but your body just needs that little, extra, really specific nudge - because when your hormones get back into balance, all your menopausal symptoms are going to start getting better at once.  

I've seen it over, and over, and over... The right diet & lifestyle combined with herbs give my clients maximum relief.  Herbs are my #1 most powerful natural remedy for helping the body during menopause.

But how do I know which herbs to take?  Are they safe?

Not every woman is having the same menopause

  • Some women have extreme heat
  • Some women aren't THAT hot, but they have the really bad mood swings or brain fog
  • some women just cant sleep
  • For others it's weight gain

The list goes on...

Herbs work best (by far) when they're customized to your body.

But not everyone has weekly access to an herbalist!

So I thought, how can I help more women get the benefits of herbs during menopause. 

Who am I to tell you how to balance your hormones anyway?? 

Hi I'm Dana LaVoie, LAc,

I'm an Acupuncturist & Herbalist specializing in women health.  I’ve got a Masters in Oriental Medicine, 9 years of study with Master Herbalist Ron Teeguarden, 4 years of studying Master Tung’s Acupuncture with Susan Johnson, and 14 years of clinical experience.

I've been studying menopause for a decade and a half in my clinic…

Because when I saw how much women were suffering with menopause

and what amazing results they were getting with what i had to offer

and how little support or real help they were getting anywhere else for menopausal symptoms

it became my mission in life to share what i know with as many women as possible.

Basically, I've taken everything I've learned from my Masters, years of advanced study, and 14 years' of clinical experience, and I've narrowed it down to something I know is going to 

carry you over obstacles that have stopped you in the past, change your life, and revolutionize your health.

I just can't wait for you to get started. ​

Let me introduce you to Menopause Basics: Herbs

It's the quickest, safest way to get access to the most potent, highest quality, cleanest herbs on the planet customized for you, your body, and your menopause. 

Not all herbs are the same (not even close.)  

I'm passionate about herbs.  I've been using them myself and with my 1:1 clients for 14 years.  I've tried everything.  I've researched it all.  And I've found the best quality herbs.  Those are the only ones I use.

(Truth bomb:  There are MANY other herbal lines available to me that would be more convenient for me to use and would have a bigger profit margin.  But I only sell the herbs I use myself - the absolute best - because this makes ALL the difference in the results you get.)

Acupuncture & Herbs for Anxiety & Depression

Acupuncture with Dana has changed my life! Just before I started acupuncture I had gone through countless drugs trying to get relief form anxiety and depression. The acupuncture and herbs have mellowed me out, and now I no longer yell at my child every day. Yay!:) Thank You!


The first thing that worked for my PMS & anxiety

I've tried many different remedies to help with mood swings during PMS and also with anxiety. I was hesitant to spend more money and possibly be disappointed yet again, but My mood swings associated with PMS changed drastically with Dana's help.

Before, I would have such a hard time controlling my mood starting 10 days before my period and just assumed the level I was experiencing this at was normal. I've tried many different herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes. I have a steady yoga and meditation practice but none of this seemed to have an affect when it came to PMS.

With Dana's thoughtful recommendations, after 3 months of taking what she prescribed, I can honestly say my life has changed for the better! I feel much more calm before that time of the month, and if I do experience a shift in my mood it is only a few days before my period starts rather than 10, and I am able to respond to whatever arises in a much more controlled way.

I feel like I am in good hands with Dana. She takes the time to really listen to my concerns, to consider a holistic point of view, and has a wealth of knowledge to share! To top it off she has such a kind and warm presence that I feel really comfortable bringing up anything with her.

I would absolutely recommend Dana. Especially for hormone related issues. I feel that there is not enough education for us as women around our cycle and hormones- I know so much more now thanks to Dana!

With Dana, anyone can feel confident that they are in the best care!


Oh, and by the way, those pills you gave me worked - my family thanks you!

I'm treating a client for pain in her arm…

She's most of the way through menopause and mostly feeling great, but one day she came in and said…

"All of a sudden my hot flashes are back and I'm so irritable I'm snapping at my husband all day long - I just can't help it!”

So after treating her arm pain with acupuncture, I gave her one of my FAVORITE herbal formulas for all-around menopausal complaints of mood swings + heat + a little dryness. It's called Profound Essence.

And a couple of weeks later - she felt balanced again - no hot flashes and no mood swings. Her hormones just had a menopausal hiccup and needed a little help getting back in balance.


Ready to put the icing on your cake (I mean, get started with herbs)?  Here's how it works:

I recommend you start by taking my my Menopause Basics: What to Eat  course (though it's not required).  Then when you're  ready for herbs you will: 

Please note that the Monthly Herbal Box Program is only available within the U.S.



We'll really talk and make sure you're a good match for taking herbs.  I'll answer any questions you have.  If you're a good match for the program - we'll get you started on setting up your initial consultation. 



You'll fill out some easy online health history forms, then get on the phone or video chat with me, and we'll figure out your menopausal type, review your history and medications, and determine the best herbal combination for you.  You'll also have a full diet and lifestyle AUDIT. 



Each box will contain enough herbs for a month.  Along with detailed instructions and personalized recommendations for key diet and lifestyle changes if necessary broken down into very easy steps.  

You will take the herbs regularly - usually twice a day.  (they don't work at all if you don't take them.)

You'll have access to my ​library of resources on how to take herbs.

And you'll be able to have access to me weekly ​to get your questions answered

You'll have members-only access to my carefully curated add-on herbal products AND a membership and members-only discount to everything on NPScript. 



At the end of 3 months we'll review and make a plan.  Usually we either set you up with another consultation and herbs to work on your second complaint or set you up with an herbal maintenance routine to keep you feeling as good as you are right now (no additional consult necessary - but it's available if you need it.) 

And yes, space is limited! 

What do I have to do? ​

The herbs don't work if you don't take them.  Most of the herbs come in capsules, and you'll need to take them twice a day.  I'll show you multiple ways you can take them.  We'll find something that fits your routine whether it's swallowing the capsules, turning them into a tea, or blending them into a smoothie.  

How much will it cost? 

If it's your first time joining the program, you'll get our introductory package, which costs $250.  This includes two 1:1 consultations plus your account setup and your personalized Wellness Plan including a customized Diet and Lifestyle Audit.  You'll then be charged for your herbs on the 13th of each month, and the cost of the herbs ranges from $46/month to $297/month depending on which herbs are included in your package.  We'll decide which combination is best for you based on my recommendations and your budget.  You'll get free shipping on everything.  

Have Questions - here are some answers:

If you decide the herbs don't agree with you, you can cancel future auto-ship packages at any time - you just need to let us know before the 13th of the month if you don't want your package to arrive the beginning of the next month.  There is a fee to restart your program, which is why you can also pause your monthly deliveries at any time.  Please contact us for the details. 

Available only within the continental U.S.

Initial consultations are scheduled on Wednesdays, herb shipments are charged on the 14th of every month, and packages are shipped out so that they arrive on or before first of each month.  

Payment for your first two consultations and account setup of $250 is due at the time of your first appointment, this fee is nonrefundable.   Your first month's herbs will be charged on the 14th of the month.  You will then be automatically charged for your shipment each of the next two months on the 14th unless you cancel.
