During a women’s life, she will most likely experience a number of changes throughout her life – pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopause and menopause.  It can have a substantial effect on her health and overall well-being.  These natural factors in combination with stress, illness, exposure to toxins, sleep issues and weight gain, can negatively impact a woman’s hormone balance and quality of life.

Symptoms as a woman approaches Perimenopause:

  • Low libido
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss or thinning
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings
  • Headaches

Menopause can occur for women as early as the thirties or as late as the fifties. At the onset of menopause, the ovaries have ceased adequate production of progesterone and estrogen, and the body is no longer fertile. Due to this change, women can experience a number of uncomfortable symptoms, which can include thinning bones, vaginal dryness, osteoporosis, night sweats, hot flashes, low libido, anxiety, depression and insomnia.


During perimenopause, the ovaries production of estrogen and progesterone begins to degenerate, and women begin to experience symptoms that include low libido, fatigue, migraines, increased PMS symptoms, headaches, amenorrhea, irregular periods, dysmenorrhea and infertility. This transitional phase typically lasts from three to ten years before menopause begins.
