Peri-menopause reframed

Peri-menopause, perimenopause, menopause, hot flashes, natural treatments, homeopathy herbs
Peri-menopause is something that happens to all women eventually.

Most women in their forties already have an overflowing plate, so it’s not surprising that perimenopause can be a mental, physical and emotional challenge.

For women who had babies in their late thirties or early forties, energy can be incredibly depleted post-natally, and hormonal fluctuations can feel like the last straw.

Hormonal birth-control and IVF put a heavy burden on the liver, which is another underlying cause of hormonal imbalance.

A course of homeopathy provides effective treatment to soften and ease the process.

Even troublesome symptoms respond beautifully to a natural approach.

I’m writing this from a café in Dublin. I’m here to DJ at Fair City Blues, one of my favourite weekend blues music and dance events.

I didn’t realise I was going to be away for Mother’s Day. I don’t think my family mind too much. I know I’ll find a card and some flowers to welcome me home tomorrow.

As a child, I remember making cards with flowers made out of tissue. Sometimes we even made bunches of flowers with pipe cleaner stems. We would always visit my grandmothers on Mothering Sunday, as they both lived nearby.

Today I’m sitting in this café thinking about the mother figures I’ve had in my life, and reflect on how they influenced me.
