When you head towards menopause, nobody tells you what you’re going to become. They allude to it in whispered secret code, because female biology is classified information. Full disclosure might cause shame or serious injury to the national interest.
You keep calm and carry on, not expecting it to happen yet. Then suddenly you’re hot, you’re cold, your body begins to go through all this crazy shit, you’re exhausted, you pile on weight and on top of all that, you begin to lose your mind.
Recently, perimenopause hit me in all its hot-flash, brain fog, hormonal glory as my body retreated into a chrysalis of transformation. I was unprepared and quite possibly in denial. If someone had shared the nuggets of truth within this book with me, then the last few years of my life would have made SO much more sense.
By the time I turned 48 I was still knee-deep in denial and yet I’d already begun the transition. I ended up in the depths of despair, behaving erratically as my hormones fled in a mass exodus. I’d had my oestrogen fix removed and didn’t understand what that meant.
After wading through research, opinions, women’s health forums and listening to medical professionals, I began to explore a range of lifestyle and medical options to help restore my state of balance. Eventually I found a route that brought me back to sanity. If you’re a woman in your late thirties or heading through your forties (or love a woman who is) you need to read this. It’s FREE, so there’s nothing to lose!
Menopause is one of the most tightly held secrets of women’s health. Its mysteries are rarely discussed, let alone explored. With our minds and mood swings betraying us, how do we get our head around the topic, let alone talk to anyone about it? How do the poor suckers who must witness our weirdness, fathom what the hell is going on, if we can’t even talk about it?
Admitting we’re going through it is like raising a white flag; surrendering our vibrant, sexy female power, accepting it’s all incontinence knickers and funeral insurance adverts from here on in.
In The Truth About Perimenopause, Full-Frontal Complete Edition I reveal my honest and eye-opening journey uncovering the mysteries of menopause. I talk about the relationship of hormones to our wellbeing, including testosterone (which turns out is harder to score than heroin), and explore the array of myths surrounding hormone therapy. I also uncover alternatives to hormone therapies including non-hormone prescription medications, plus the effects of lifestyle and diet.
Some societies embrace menopause as a time of renewal. We women in Western societies haven’t made that leap yet, but we can. This book guides us through perimenopause to reimagine the vibrant, powerful, wise women of society that we are and should be.
