Why would learning about menopause before it happens be on your radar?

  • Your doctor’s not talking about menopause ahead of time. 
  • There’s no common knowledge about telling you what’s coming.  
  • Our mother’s certainly didn’t know what to expect. 

And yet it's SO important.  Watch this quick video to find out what you need to know to prepare for and recognize perimenopause.

Why women need to know how to recognize perimenopause

Menopause is a transformation in your body that's happening with or without your guidance

Everyone still seems to think it’s fine to figure it out when we get there.

But when I talk to a woman who’s been awake every night for two years with her heart pounding out of her chest thinking she might not make it until morning… 

Because the doc said her heart was fine but is SURE doesn’t feel that way...

And the only reason it’s gone on so long is because she doesn’t recognize that it’s being caused by early perimenopause - and that some simple hormonal strategies could probably stop it in it’s tracks…

You realize how important it is for women to know what perimenopause can look like - so they recognize it when it happens. 

Understanding the complexities of menopause can open up a world of possibilities for avoiding a lot of misery AND...  

What you do DURING menopause is a HUGE opportunity to optimize your health for slow aging after menopause

So here’s a crash course on what menopause is and what to expect it to feel like.

What is menopause?

Before menopause:

  • Your hormones are at their highest levels - these are your most fertile years. 
  • The average age for this is mid teens to late twenties, though it can vary from woman to woman.

Then during the “menopausal transition

  • Your hormones drop from those highest levels - to your lower post menopausal levels where they stabilize again.
  • I consider everything during that time when your hormones are changing to be part of the menopausal transition.

When you get any kind of physical symptoms you always want to get them checked out by the doctor to make sure they're not caused by something else like heart disease or cancer that just happened to occur at the same time you were going through menopause, But that's 2% of the time. 

The rest of the time once the doc says its not anything like that - then -it's very likely caused by the hormonal changes of menopause.

When hormones are the cause of the symptoms, hormonal solutions need to be part of how you solve it. 

Otherwise, you're just putting band-aids on symptoms.

They won't actually get better - you'll just be managing more and more symptoms, with more and more meds as time goes by. The side effects from the meds can compromise your kidney and liver, and put your health on a downward spiral.

Knowing what symptoms to address with hormonal solutions is REALLY important.

Common Symptoms You're Likely to Experience And what they mean

Here are the most common symptoms you can expect:

These could be signs of perimenopause beginning as progesterone declines.

  • Sudden changes in your cycle like intense PMS with mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Migraines
  • Heavier periods or periods closer together/happening irregularly
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Body pain
  • Heart palpitations
  • Insomnia
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Thinning hair 

As estrogen levels join the decline farther into the transition, brace yourself for:

  • Intensified heat symptoms

Such as

  • night sweats mood swings and hot flashes 
  • waves of anxiety or brain fog

The heat, sweats, and mood swings can throw you off balance sparking waves of anxiety or brain fog!

As you reach the end of the change and transition into post-menopause, testosterone drops along with estrogen and progesterone, and you’re more likely to see:

  • sudden signs of aging
  • crepey skin, graying, thinning hair
  • changes in muscle tone
  • lower libido
  • dryness (anywhere)
  • plus any and all of the symptoms that have come before
