Before I start writing, I need to show you something...

You caught that, right?

The herbal remedies worked to get RID of hot flashes and night sweats, and I’m going to show you how to do the same.  Because I know menopause can feel confusing and out of your control, and I know how intense the symptoms can get

You know that in order to get rid of hormonal symptoms you need a hormonal remedy

But the advice about which one to choose is downright conflicting and confusing - overwhelming!

You really hope you won't need medications, chemicals, or Hormone Replacement Therapy.

And in the meantime...

  • You’re terrified of menopause - you’ve always dreaded it and worried it’ll be horrific like a death knell or a wakeup call because when it hits its like - how can this be happening to me already?
  • The weepies, the irritability, the brain fog… You feel like you're going crazy and just trying all day to keep your family from realizing it...
  • Your partner said, "Could you make our life together any more difficult? You're so prickly it's like trying to hug a porcupine!
  • You've thought you were dying AND losing your mind to varying degrees over the last few years before you realized you were perimenopausal
  • You’re having severe hot flashes every hour on the hour all night where you have to sit up off the bed to fan yourself and cool the bed
  • You can't remember the last time you slept deeply all through the night

The problem?

Trying to sort through the confusing information out there about the best way to deal with menopause is enough to send you into another anxiety-ridden sleepless night 

You've got enough questions to fill a notebook.... And no one to help you answer them. 

  • Are you ever going to be at your ideal weight again?  Because you can't lose weight.  Full stop.  It's never been a problem before, but now NOTHING is working
  • Is your sex life just, over?  Because the doctor saying the dryness, pain, or recurrent UTIs are "just something some women have to deal with" seems to indicate, yes.
  • Chronic UTI's, low libido, vaginal dryness, weight gain, hot flashes, poor sleep about sums it up

Researching and worrying night after sleepless night.  Spending money on menopause remedies that don't work.  Wondering if what you're taking for hot flashes is safe - or if it could cause cancer...


Your head starts filling up with common (but untrue) thoughts trying to sabotage your golden years before your kids are even out of the house. 

...Believe me, I've been there...


big doubt #1:

Relief isn't possible.  You even tried HRT and that didn't work!

You were sure natural remedies wouldn't be strong enough for your severe symptoms, so you tried HRT (even though you didn't want to take hormones...) But even that didn't work (or the side effects were so intense you had to stop) so you still feel like crap. 

big doubt #2

You don't have time to learn enough about herbal medicine to make sense of using herbal remedies for all 20 symptoms you seem to have

How can you possibly figure out which natural or herbal remedies to use to deal with *All * the ways menopause is making you feel practically unable to function without ending up taking so many herbs it gives you a stomach ache and costs too much? 

Big doubt #3: 

You're worried the best part of your life is over and it's all downhill from here

Not having control over your weight, your skin, hair, muscles, energy, creativity, memory, blood pressure, bone health, joint pain...  Thinking it's all going to get worse and worse and there's nothing you can do about it..

Now slow your scroll for a sec

Imagine having a reliable way to get relief from every hormone-related symptom that pops up - without lab tests, HRT, or medication.

  • You'd be able to sleep through the night and everything you do during the day would be 100x better because of it
  • You'd have the energy, concentration, and focus to create whatever's been inside you on hold for years, to travel the world, or just to keep up with your grandkids
  • You'd have the libido and vaginal health for vroom vroom as much as you desire
  • You'd stay strong in your muscles, bones, and joints and flexible in your tendons and ligaments - you'd look feel younger and stronger, love your body, and be able to be as active as you like (not to mention *rock* your favorite jeans again)
  • You'd naturally stay at your ideal weight, because your metabolism is turned ON
  • You'd prevent your brain from shrinking (Yes, really it can happen from low estrogen) and stay clearheaded and strong minded
  • Sweater weather?  No problem, no sweating here.

Sounds too good to be true?

It's not.

I know because I've done it, and I've taught hundreds of other women to do it.

And I cant wait to show YOU how to do it too.

But wait, have we met?

Hi, I'm Dana

Guitar player, gardener, animal lover, and shameless fantasy movie fan.

I've also been an acupuncturist & herbalist for 20 years, and I'm passionate about simplifying the sh*t out of getting real relief from menopause and aging with safe, natural - but highly customized herbal remedies.

It all started with my first menopausal client almost 20 years ago. I was just starting my practice and had no idea how intense menopause could be when this woman came into my office...

She'd had such anxiety and brain fog during a hot flash she'd driven her car through her garage door - while the door was closed - with her kids in the car.

And her doctor offered antidepressants and said "It's just menopause - wait it out for a few years."

I put her on herbal remedies.  And when 12 weeks later she felt completely like herself again with only mild warm flushes and zero anxiety or brain fog....

I was like - wow. Women need what Chinese herbal medicine has to offer for menopause.

Fast forward 15 years to when perimenopause hit me like a mac truck. I woke up one day with weeping and yelling - mood swings so intense I/ Could. Not. function. I cried 20 times in one day. I cried when someone said, "Hi." Then two days later I got my period and I was like... OOOOH that was perimenopausal PMS!

Because I'd been specializing in helping women with their hormones for 15 years, refining and tweaking what actually worked, (and finding out what didn't) I knew exactly what to do.

I adjusted my herbs - the next month the PMS was half as intense - and the third month it was gone. That was four years ago.

And now I'm more dedicated than ever to helping YOU reclaim feeling like yourself and loving your body and this time in your life, because you feel amazing. Not just OK.  Not just symptom free.  Amazing.

And let's take this one step further

Because if you know me, you know I wont settle for middle of the road results.

I'm not dedicated to ONLY helping you get relief from your current menopause symptoms...

But to helping you get your hormones so refilled and balanced *that you can control your experience of the aging process post menopause*  reducing or completely avoiding many of the common diseases and signs of aging we THINK have to be waiting for us.
