As women, we are no strangers to the physical & emotional impact of the hormonal roller coaster ride
... THROUGH PUBERTY, MENSTRUATION, PREGNANCY, AND (PERI-)MENOPAUSE ...
Generally starting in our 40s, hormone levels fluctuate in peri-menopause and then drop, triggering physical and emotional symptoms associated with menopause.
Fluctuating and diminishing levels of sex hormones can be to blame for a whole host of symptoms and issues before and after menopause.
Symptoms vary from woman to woman based on her genetics, health status and dietary and lifestyle factors. With such varying influences, each woman has a unique experience of the menopausal transition.

MOOD SWINGS & IRRITABILITY
ABDOMINAL WEIGHT GAIN
