Symptom Library

Symptom Library

There are over 34 symptoms of menopause, which is truly quite disturbing! The good news is that not all are experienced by all women, and some symptoms are more common for many than others. I’m covering some of the more common in this Symptom Library, offering top tips to help you manage those giving you greatest concern.

However, the root cause of all these symptoms is the fluctuation of hormones through the peri-post menopause years. Treating this ROOT cause is so important to help reduce the frequency and severity of all menopause symptoms. You’ll find a common theme running through the symptom management posts covering hydration, diet, exercise, stress reduction, mindset and more. All of these are covered in the Natural Menopause Road Map online workshop helping you create a happier and more balanced life through menopause and beyond.
