Peri-Menopause: 3 Part Video Series; Video 1: Symptoms of Peri-Menopause

Updated: Aug 22, 2022

I hope you are having a great week! I am excited to share with you a new 3 Part Video Series on Peri-Menopause. I have been treating women (and men) of all ages (including teenagers) with hormone symptoms and conditions for many years and it’s something that I not only specialize in, I really enjoy getting to the root cause(s) of hormone symptoms and helping patients feel balanced and revitalized.

This particular topic is on Peri-Menopause and is one of my favorites. It’s a fluctuating transition time in a women’s life and while every woman goes through this, it can be a frustrating, uncomfortable and confusing time of intermittent symptoms. But there is hope in helping you cruise through this time with greater ease! 

This 3 Part Video Series includes 3 different topics. Video #1 – that you see and can watch at the top of this – discusses what the clinical meaning and significance of peri-menopause along with the various signs and symptoms that women usually experience during this time. 

You can also view this one and all videos from YouTube. Be sure to subscribe for free!

Examples of typical symptoms might include menstrual cycle changes, heavier bleeding, timing and cyclical changes, PMS symptoms worsening, mood changes, weight increase, food cravings, skin changes and more!

In Video #2 – which I’ll send later this week – I’ll discuss various types of hormone testing, the pros and cons of each and which one is recommended for the most sensitivity and accuracy. Hormone testing methods include blood/serum, saliva, 24 hour urine hormone and 4x/day dried urine hormone testing.

In Video #3 – which will be sent next week – I’ll discuss a Naturopathic and Functional Medicine approach to treating peri-menopause – from botanical medicine, nutrition therapy, exercise and lifestyle recommendations, stress management and bio-identical hormone prescriptions. A truly comprehensive treatment approach!  

Also, I have a private Facebook Group I started recently called Peri & Post Menopause: Women’s Health, Hormones Vitality. Please join us over there for more upcoming information and recommendations!
