Women may spend over a decade of their lives experiencing symptoms around menopause transition, while just over 10% of women’s healthcare professionals feel comfortable treating menopause. The conversation around menopause has evolved beyond hot flashes and night sweats to include how hormonal changes affect bone, brain, mood, heart and mental health. Lack of comprehensive medical training coupled with a gross tolerance for women’s suffering has resulted in women desperate for solutions. The marketplace has seized this opportunity and inundated women with influencers who are selling one size fits all approaches which may not be medically appropriate or helpful. 

Every other week we will gather to review topics that are relevant to menopause and take you behind the scenes with hormone specialists to help you cull and decipher health recommendations to find your unique solution.

You deserve a guide to help you navigate the menopause transition as well as the onslaught of medical information and disinformation. We are 2 women’s hormone specialists who have combined 38 years of clinical experience. We have training in both conventional, functional medicine and sexual medicine. Our goal is two fold: First we revolutionize the conversation, using menopause transition as a spark to ignite health transformation. Secondly, we will discuss solutions for low libido, weight gain, mood changes, brain fog, hot flashes and night sweats, insomnia and sexual pain and dive into the nuances of each topic, empowering women to determine what is uniquely relevant for them. 

Many of us at this time in our lives are at a high point in our relationships and our careers. We know ourselves and know how to create boundaries and have defined our values in a way that we simply didn’t have the wisdom to do in our 20 and 30s. Women in their 40s and 50s are at the perfect moment to take up some space in their lives and step into this transition with strength. Every other week we will gather to review topics that are relevant to menopause and take you behind the scenes with hormone specialists to help you cull and decipher health recommendations to find your unique solution.
