Get relief — naturally.
“I just have to say thank you. It has made such a difference in my life to be able to sleep through the night, as well as to be free of the hot flashes during the day.”
— Justine, customer
Millions of women come to our website looking for relief from their menopause symptoms. Some of them have just experienced their first hot flash, others have been suffering from symptoms for years and are finally at the end of their rope. Many women already know a natural solution is right for them — others are skeptical of natural menopause remedies but curious to find out if they really might work.
All of these women tend to have one thing in common: they want to know what’s causing their symptoms and what they can do about it. The good news is, there’s a lot you can do to alleviate your menopause symptoms naturally, especially once you understand the underlying cause. We’re here to help.
Most American women these days will experience a significant degree of symptoms during the years leading up to menopause. And most are surprised to learn the full spectrum of symptoms associated with menopause. The most common menopause symptoms are:
- Hot flashes and/or night sweats
- Cravings for sweets or carbohydrates
- Diminished sexual desire, vaginal dryness
- Irritability, mood swings, depression, and/or anxiety
- Insomnia or restless sleep
- Fuzzy thinking (difficulty concentrating, memory problems)
- Weight gain, especially around the middle
- Stiffness and joint pain
- Irregular periods
Other menopause symptoms include headaches, worsening PMS, heart palpitations, thinning hair, dry skin, dry eyes, increased facial hair, urinary dysfunction and digestive problems. You may have noticed one or two of these symptoms yourself in recent months — or you may be suffering from several. Although the average age of menopause is 52, your symptoms can start many months or several years before your periods end.
Many women treat each of their symptoms individually without realizing they are all connected and share a root cause. Unfortunately this usually means women don’t get the long-term solution they need and deserve. But once you understand the underlying cause of your menopause symptoms you’ll see how a holistic approach can bring lasting relief.
What causes menopause symptoms?
Conventional medicine tends to treat menopause as if it’s a disease. The basic argument is that during menopause the ovaries stop producing estrogen and symptoms arise, so replacing that estrogen with a prescription version will therefore quell your symptoms. While this might be the right choice for some women, “treating” menopause with hormone replacement ignores the innate wisdom of your body and medicalizes a normal physiological process that women have experienced for centuries — in addition to the added health risks associated with HRT!
Others argue that menopause symptoms are caused by progesterone deficiency, leading to a syndrome called estrogen dominance. In this theory, the solution is to offset estrogen using progesterone supplementation. We’ve used bioidentical progesterone cream with our patients in the past and many have had great results. But for some women, progesterone isn’t the answer. So what is the real cause of your menopause symptoms?
A natural, personalized approach that offers real relief
We can confidently say that just as every woman experiences menopause symptoms differently, every woman also has a unique hormonal profile — both in terms of their supply of and need for estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone (yes, women need testosterone, too!). While menopause symptoms always arise from an imbalance among these hormones, your hormonal imbalance may look completely different than your sister’s.
This fact led us to develop our Herbal Equilibrium, a synergistic and adaptogenic combination of herbs that has been shown — scientifically and empirically — to relieve menopause symptoms by supporting your body’s ability to restore its own natural hormonal balance. We’re thrilled to offer Herbal Equilibrium as a component of our approach for your use at home.
The herbs in our Herbal Equilibrium help regulate all three of the hormones whose fluctuations are at the root of your menopause symptoms — estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Some herbs work by mimicking your hormones on a molecular level, while others interact with the tissues in your body to encourage them to increase their own hormone synthesis.
Most importantly, Herbal Equilibrium is adaptogenic. This means your body uses only what it needs to restore its own natural hormonal balance. Unlike forcing the body to metabolize a set dose of a pharmaceutical drug, phytotherapy like our Herbal Equilibrium allows the body to communicate its needs and respond to the plant molecules as appropriate. Your body can adapt Herbal Equilibrium to your unique hormonal profile, resolving the hormonal imbalance that is causing your menopause symptoms.
It doesn’t work overnight. If your symptoms are severe, it may take several weeks for your body to restore itself. But most women feel a difference within two weeks, and this will give you the motivation to continue. And if you stick with it, you may be surprised by how good you will feel.
To help you get started we’ve structured the Hormonal Health Package as a risk-free trial, customized to match the severity of your symptoms. (Take our Hormonal Health Profile to assess your symptoms.) If you’re not sure if a natural approach is right for you, we encourage you to try it and see how you feel. If you’re not satisfied, simply return the empty containers and we’ll refund your purchase price.
(If you’re already on HRT but interested in discontinuing it, we have a special program designed for you. For more information, read about our program for getting off HRT.)
The Hormonal Health Package also includes pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements to give you the nutrients necessary for hormone synthesis and metabolism, and to offset the stress that a modern diet places on your body. Proper nutrition — including micronutrients and essential fatty acids — is key to a healthy body in menopause and beyond, but because of the ways our food is grown, processed, cooked, and packaged it is impossible for most women to get the nutrients they need from diet alone. Nutritional support is particularly helpful in curbing cravings and supporting healthy weight loss. It is also essential for maintaining strong, healthy bones.
Changing women’s health, naturally
For some women menopause is a time they dread — they are worried that as they age they will become less powerful, less attractive, or just not themselves when hormonal imbalance takes over. There are other women who look at menopause as a gift — a chance for a second lease on life and a time to find their voice — free of worrying about monthly cycles and contraception. It’s our hope that, if you’re not already there, you will join this group of women who are transforming our perspective of what it means to be “menopausal.” The first step is to take control of your symptoms and give your body the support it needs and deserves. We designed the Hormonal Health Package to give women the tools they need to empower themselves during this transition. So get started today, and let us know how good you feel!
