Peri-menopause reframed

peri-menopause, menopause, mid-life, forties, hormones, flushes, sweatsPeri-menopause is something that happens to all women eventually.

It can take a bit of navigating, but troublesome symptoms respond beautifully to a natural approach.

When I look at my list of women role models and icons I realise one thing they have in common is that they are comfortable in their own skin,  unafraid to express themselves for who they truly are.

I also realise that they continued being fabulous all through their life. They didn’t suddenly stop at menopause.

Deborah Harry is one of my favourite examples. I saw her perform when she was over sixty and she was incredible and totally herself.


The peri-menopause can feel like a dirty secret.

There you are, a grown woman with roles and responsibilities, and managing most of them pretty well, at least most of the time. Then suddenly you start getting hot and bothered about things and you realise it’s your hormones.

It shouldn’t be a surprise or even a massive problem in itself.  Periods become closer together for a while, then further apart. Typically they become lighter, but as the hormonal pendulum swings, they can get heavier for a while and that’s not so easy. Heavy periods at their worst can be alarming, not to mention limiting as it can be hard to be away from home if you’re worried about where the toilets will be.

Hot flashes and night sweats are the other distressing symptom. I see that a lot in my practice, but luckily it’s easy to resolve with a course of targeted treatment. Homeopathy and homeobotanicals settle down all the hormonal symptoms very quickly, and the other signs of peri-menopause improve alongside:

  • mood swings
  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • memory problems
  • low energy and libido
  • dry skin
  • brittle nails


When you take a moment to think about it, peri-menopause symptoms are a just a signal from your body that change is underway. One way to re-frame those symptoms is that they offer a chance to re-invent ourselves.

It’s impossible to take anything for granted once we turn 40. Gone are the days when we can get away with ‘running on empty’ – staying up all night and surviving on toast, wine and chocolate for weeks on end.

That might have been ok while we were in our twenties or thirties, but not anymore.

Natural strategies for a Calm peri-menopause

  1. Eat more fresh food, organic wherever possible: more vegetables, protein, and good fat.
  2. Try Organic Beauty Boost for your skin, hair, and nails.
  3. Try Beauty Sleep Supplement for calm and restful sleep.
  4. Try Organic Cocoa Blend to help with energy and libido.
  5. Switch to organic skin-care.
  6. Do exercise you enjoy.
  7. Increase hydration with water and herbal tea.
  8. Get more sleep, especially before midnight.
  9. Create more ‘down-time’.

These are all things you can do for yourself.

Sometimes it’s easier to let someone else get you sorted out.

If that sounds like what you need, I’m only too happy to help.

Everyone is different and you’ll have the homeopathic and homeobotanical medicines that are perfect for you.
