I wish I could say I knew all this already, as a nurse who’s worked in ob/gyn for years, had an Oestrogen dependent breast cancer and went through a speeded up menopause at 48 due to Tamoxifen, but so much of this has been a surprise to me as well. I’m now slowly getting past the sadness and I’m on to the rage part.

As life expectancy of our species is 40 years, our bodies is not designed to go through menopause.A woman should be able to reproduce till end of her life like other mammals, so menopause is not a natural condition. As now we live much longer than our bodies is designed for by nature, indeed we suffer the consequences of lack of hormons etc. Medicine can't do much about it. Homeopathy and naturopathy offer some help but even that is limited.

Good menopause DIY toolkit: 1. Mediterranean diet 2. probiotic, turmeric 3. soy isoflavones, isoflavones 4. 25-gram fiber in diet per day 5. limit the amount of added sugars to less than 25-gram per day 6. consistent resistance training, muscle training (strong muscle = strong bones) 7. wear a weighted west

I am a nurse, all those statements are so true! I wanted to scream. I had no training or education in menopause. I went from being a very healthy, international athelete, to someone who had extreme fatigue, muscle stiffness, brain fog, massive changes in blood lipids, raised CRP. I was trying to find out want was going on. My GP would start to treat me like a was a head case. He never once mentioned menopause. I kept saying I am putting on so much weight and I am not changing anything. My doctor spluttered and said that's not possible!!! Please keep doing this work, it is so important.

It's frustrating. I mentioned it to my GP if it was menopause, & he snapped at me and said:" don't be silly, you're still young" (50). You need to eat properly."

I definitely can relate 3 years in and out the doctors office and finally this last visit , I requested my hormones be tested and only for the doctor to say I was post menopausal 😢! Three years of headaches , bloodwork out of wack , inflammation , cholesterol issue! None recognized I was premenopausal, until this last visit I was very vocal about testing my hormones telling her about my hot flashes , fatigue , low libido etc.. the brain fog and fatigue was getting the best of me!! I was under performing at work due to the brain fog! I thought I had developed ADHD.. I’m so very grateful tho this last doctor was able to pinpoint and give me some answers and hopefully relief! I’ll continue to educate my self on this and help others around me recognize the symptoms….

I can honestly say that Dr Haver has changed my life. I have been struggling with perimenopause ( didn’t even know what that was ) now menopause and I came across a video in KZbin . I started watching her videos, I got her books, found a hormone specialist and I feel like I was born again. I learned nothing from my doctor or my OBGYN . When I first mentioned some of the symptoms I was told you are too young, I was already 47. Now I follow the Galveston diet, I changed my eating habits, I am taking the right supplements and I am on HRT. There is no reason to suffer! Thank you so much !!!! ❤

I came across menopause Barbie on KZbin last year. She is also a dr who went through it. Her channel opened my eyes to what was happening to me. My mum and aunts would not talk about it so I was on my own. I actually thought I was going crazy with the brain fog. So I educated myself and made a drs appt armed with a checklist of symptoms and research papers. My dr listened and I have been on hrt for 9mths now. Omg what a difference it has made to my life. I am still carrying extra pounds around my middle and the search for a remedy for that lead me to Dr Mary Clair. I cut out sugar and complex carbohydrates and increased my protein intake. I have lost about 5lbs on my one. Do I ordered the Galveston diet book, which only came yesterday. I have high hopes for the future now. And hope to be back in the size 10 cloths in that future. Best wishes to all you lovely ladies out there on your personal journeys back to yourself. And for all of you who have daughters please prepare them, I have mine. Love and blessings ❤

All these menopause symptoms are probably being diagnosed separately as anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, dementia, etc, yet the root of the cause is low hormones. Every woman should have not only a family doctor but a gyne doctor who is knowledgeable about perimenopause and menopause to guide the patient thru these stages .

I had 2 frozen shoulders one after the other and never once was I asked if I was menopausal/ post menopausal. What a revelation.
@pamthomassen283 27 күн бұрын
I had the same last year. Two frozen shoulders, I thought I would never be able to do my bra up again let alone pull my pants up or the basics like plugging in my seat belt..the struggle was real and pain was intense. I couldn’t sleep on either side and my already difficulty sleeping was compounded by the pain and not being able to find a pain free way to sleep. I spent a fortune on GP visits, Chiro, physio, pharmacy on pain meds and eventually sleeping tablets after two years of poor sleep. I had cortisone injections into my shoulders and let me tell you that is super painful 😢.Never ever did anyone of my health care practitioners ask me about my menopausal status. At 52-53 I was still having my period and had never had hot flushes until a few months ago which coincided with missing 2 periods. Everyone told me if you are still having your period you can’t have menopause. Even my gynae in Oct 2023, last year, suggested that I sounded depressed and that maybe she could write me a referal for someone to speak to after I told her all my symptoms. The Mel Robbins interview with Dr Haver was life changing for me. It all made so much sense. I have shared that pod cast with all my friends and will keep telling people to listen up because no one talks about menopause openly. I started on the patches last week and look forward to learning more through research & interviews like the Zoe one with Dr Haver. Thank you for sharing this information with us ladies.

It was never talked about, and still not talked about. So happy dr. Haver,is educating us. I have both of her books! And have shared the book with my daughter so she doesn’t have to suffer the way my aunt did, or the thousands of women out there! Thank you dr. Haver❤️

Game changer ... after two years dealing with frozen shoulder and right after that hot flashes started, it was when I felt like my body was screaming " you have to move". I ended up joining the gym and now start my work out routine at 6am - two days strength training and 3 days moderate cardio (Monday to Fridays). After six weeks, my hot flashes went away. I do really hope they never come back!

After my periods stopped I got sore knees, sore neck, muscle weakness and aches, terrible fatigue, frequent migraine. I thought there must be something seriously wrong with me and went to the doctor multiple times for tests etc. She never once suggested it was menopause - nor did other doctors in the practice. It probably was as these symptoms came on overnight and I have adjusted to them over the years.

I recently had a blood test done which flagged that my blood sugar was higher than it should be. I was shocked because I generally thought I had a healthy diet, but mostly because my diet hasn't changed and I'd always had healthy markers before. This podcast gives a very clear explanation for the reason. I am going through menopause and this is a major symptom. We really need to learn more and have better education around how we can make changes to prepare for these changes. The doctor I saw was not helpful, simply told me things I should not eat, without suggesting what I should eat instead. When another symptom is feeling hungry, this is doubly unhelpful. Thanks Zoe and keep up the great work.

I just got my tests the past week and glucose also had gone to the roof I was so nervous and sad and I just realizaed with this video that since i had an hysterectomy 4 months ago and the ovaries where removed as well this are the results. Not my cardiologist nor my gynecologist told me about these consequences and the cardiologist gave me 2 medicines to reduce these levels without taking into account my previous surgery. A real dissapoinment with health practitioners out there. I am in a very sad position since being in an underdeveloped country, I can only rely on talks like this that hopefully will give me some tools to use from.now.

doctors who withhold hormone treatment 'in case' you get cancer are protecting themselves. the increase in numbers in study groups is because they have more mammograms, many are slow growing cancers and not fatal and but the numbers are LOW. patches and gels reduce clot risks and localised estrogen is safe even for breast cancer patients. its ridiculous how much you have to suffer! my first doctor had a beard and looked like a man, a feminist health centre for women is not where you want to go if you want a script lol.

Was surprised testosterone wasn’t mentioned. Women produce more testosterone than oestrogen in their ovaries but it’s rarely replaced in the UK. Yet a good level of testosterone helps increase and maintain muscle strength meaning we support our joints. Not to mention our libido

These conversations are so important for us women facing menopause! I was only 44 when my periods stopped. In my late 30s I was perimenopausal, but no doctor seemed to consider that. Somehow it was almost liberating when my periods became irregular. Doctors still said no way was I going through menopause, but I knew better. I am experiencing a plethora of symptoms, sleeping disorder, anxiety , weight gain and joint pain being the worst. Disrupted sleep makes it really hard to make all the good life style decisions since your energy level is so low . I am a mother of two teenagers , carer for a ill relative and we are to move to a new house soon. I am in survival mode but my doctor still wonders how I am too young to be in menopause.

I listened to what this doctor had to say about nutrition and exercise and just in the past week completely overhauled my diet and exercise and I already feel some relief. I have the occasional hot flush, was ravenously hungry, had ALOT of indigestion, bloating where I look 7mos pregnant after just a small meal, extreme fatigue where I would sleep all weekend and not accomplish a thing, alot of aches and pains, a migraine that went on day after day for months last year which I had really no choice but to continue working through at full time job, i don't think I have cold shoulder but I seem to have an inability to relax and breathe deep always very clenched and does cause me pain and discomfort in the right shoulder. I had just an absolutely wicked perimenopause nonstop bleeding for several years until finally got to a gyno actually about another issue and she straight away put me on an IUD and it gradually stopped the excessive flooding bleeding. That was the worst, again all while working full time. So much fun to be working having anxiety, hot flashes and gallons of blood flooding out of you. And yes not one person warned me of any of this other than the weight gain and inability to lose weight in menopause. Thanks to these people for giving us their knowledge on the topic, so grateful. Will continue watching for more information. Btw, for migraines I used to take Tylenol which just added to the fatigue, i found that using the peppermint oil rollerball on temples works very well as does having a peppermint oil diffuser in my office that runs all day, office smells like peppermint but it's a pleasant scent and coworkers do not mind at all.

I am listening to this and I’m thinking OMG why didn’t my Dr., tell me this? I have had so many symptoms, I have used over the counter supplements for the past 9.5 years brain fog , headaches, hot flashes, frozen shoulder, weight gain, no sleep maybe 3-4 hours if I’m lucky lack of energy, depression it just goes on and on… I was told that my frozen shoulder was arthritis, I’m just getting old. I fought back on that but after 3 years of pain, finally they listened. It made no sense that one shoulder to hurt so bad and after 2 years it went away and then the other arm started. I seriously thought I was losing my mind and my quality of life was mind. I finally went into my Dr and demanded a specialist. Now I’m finding out it might be too late, but my Dr is trying.

This is so informative. How sad that people are suffering because they don’t have access to this knowledge, and how wrong is it that the medical profession focus their data on males, which is not helpful to females in many ways. I’m 48 now, still having regular periods but started with sleep disturbance a few years ago, heavy bleeding and now frozen shoulder. It was Marie Claire who taught me that it was a symptom of perimenopause. But all the doctors I have seen have wanted to refute that. Although they have given me help (physio, steroid injection and I am now on HRT).

I have suffered with very intense hot flashes for almost 24 years, from perimenopause to post menopause. Since I have changed my diet to the Zoe recommended diet, lots of variety and fibre, my hot flashes have decreased. Also, I was told last September I had type 2 diabetes. In November 2023, I discovered Zoe and the glucose goddess. From that night on, I changed the order of how I ate and my entire life changed. My blood sugar went from 7 to 6.3 in less than five weeks, and three months later it is now 6. Now if I could just get rid of the hot flashes forever.

I have had 2 frozen shoulders during peri menopause, about 5 years apart. I was never told it was related to pre menopausal symptoms. My GP advised me to rest the first time I had which was the worst advice and resulted in a severe frozen shoulder which meant I could barely lift my arm. The second time I was better informed so got better treatment and kept exercising. Really interesting to see it now linked as a symptom.

I still have hot flushes very often every day even at the age of 68. I have a whole food plant based diet since years, and most of my meals are even raw to ensure that the glycemic load of my meal stays low. I also do not eat wheat. The higher the glycemic load, the more intense the hot flushes after eating. I experienced hot flushes the first time the month my periods stopped at the age of 52. My mother suffered hot flushes till she died at the age of 86. Some of my friends however never experienced hot flushes so it depends on the person.

​@NiaLaLa_V Some women suffer hot flashes, not all of course, and some have hot flashes for a short period at the beginning of menopause only. ​Food is not certainly the cause but can trigger this condition in some individuals, also hot humid climate/weather is a terrible trigger for this condition.

They do have a Japanese word for it. And there is some research and they suspect it from isoflavones in soy. They do have menopause.

Food, sleep, movement, strength training, and HRT. Thank you 💛 Hopefully there will one day be a home testing kit for our hormones, like there is for blood sugar levels for diabetics. To see where our natural hormones are in perimenopause, and then to check if we're absorbing our HRT properly in post menopause. It's such an issue trying to get tested by the GP, so much better to do it ourselves at home as often as needed. Levels do matter, not just whether or not we're still getting symptoms of hot flushes. Especially for bone loss protection after menopause 😊xx

This year I sought out a physician that practiced women’s health. I started hormone therapy and within 12 weeks my cholesterol dropped to 4.3 and I came off one of my two blood pressure pills.

Yes, it's really shocking that there's no hesitation with the statins and BP meds, but how about addressing the underlying issues, the cliff drop in hormones? Glad you found a doctor who knows what women need 😊xx

I was on HRT for 6 months, then my baby sister was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, she had double mastectomy and is getting reading for chemotherapy.. Her oncologist recommended me to go off of HRT.. now I am searching for recommendations of managing my post menopausal symptoms naturally. My symptoms are no sleep, hot flashes, musculoskeletal pain, high blood sugar, depression, mood swings, weight gain and more… Would you do a video of how to deal with menopause naturally? Thank you so much for such a wonderful loaded of information video🙏

My blood pressure went through the roof a few months into starting the combi patches and I felt constantly tired and low in mood. The only positive was a reduction in hot flashes. I would say it was a total disaster, and only after discontinuing the patches did I feel like myself again. This is something rarely talked about on these shows: many women react badly to progesterone, cannot process it, and it actually makes their symptoms worse.

I'm 61 and I'm still having symptoms of menopause, I have a frozen shoulder at present, have had it for the past 6 months, it's in the thawing stage. I also get joint and muscle pains, internal tremors, electric shock, dry eyes and skin. I get this strange symptom that I haven't read about anywhere...it's a crashing sound in my head and I see a white flash of light even though my eyes are closed. I also experience most of the normal symptoms women talk about like hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety. Mood changes, headaches, dry mouth, no líbido, weight gain, high cholesterol, fatigue, exhaustion, no energy,plus more. I went thru peri menopause for 10 years, now I'm in post menopause 4 years .

I had a frozen shoulder that came on quickly. A physical therapist gave me a pain prescription and a set of exercises to do at home after the first episode. It was able to beat it down in about a month. I kept the exercise instructions and tools to stop the second shoulder from seizing up once it started there.

Thanks for this! My mum’s going through menopause now, but is adamant against HRT. She thinks it’s going to give her cancer. I’ve been trying a few natural remedies to help and a couple of things that worked well are standardized hot-water Tongkat Ali root extract and some occasional ashwagandha. She takes the Tongkat Ali daily and it appears to be helping with her joint pain and hot flashes a lot. On it she seems more mobile and active too, which is amazing cause she’s been feeling super fatigued since the big M hit. She uses the ashwagandha when she’s feeling stressed or low and I think that’s helped a lot too.

It’s been a nightmare- adding on the passing of loved ones, Covid and loosing a job. My mind is a complete mess.

So, as a woman, now in POST menopausal status and like you said having NO 'Heads Up,' "Hey this is what is Going to Happen to you and this is What you can DO now to make it easier" ... like most every woman I have talked to- especially in the past 20 years, I now KNOW what I CAN DO, what should have happened, what types of medical providers to look for and what NOT to, things that happen with Medical/health insurance, etc. I would like to HELP with this Menopause Education on a LARGE Scale effort and want to know, besides just talking about it when or if it comes up in conversation- HOW can I actually Help on a Larger scale? I see all of a sudden a rise in people 'saying/claiming' to BE menopause experts or coaches and charging for 'so called certifications on Menopause', but with all I've read and heard in person like at your Book Signings, educational talks, etc., How is this even possible? Only 4% of the Female Population is even on HRT/MRT or even KNOW about it, and Western Medicine Doctors have less than 5 HOURS of Education on the Subject of Menopause, how is it possible that people are saying they can 'certify' you as a Certified Menopause Coach or Counselor, etc.? How are 'they' even qualified to do so?..... I want to help and on a large scale because our FUTURE Generations NEED TO KNOW what they should expect for this entire rest of their lives. I had NO idea even though I am very well educated, well read, well travelled, intelligent, articulate, lead a healthy active athletic holistic lifestyle, etc. I was completely Blindsided. - I want to help but I don't want to be someone with fake qualifications like buying one of these so called Menopause Coach courses. If youre NOT a Medical Practitioner with a Medical Degree or Certification, how do we women who want to help on a large scale help you share this all important message on Menopause?

I never got hot flashes or the typical symptoms. I tried biological hormone pills and if they didn’t work, I could just stop. I’m 43 and they have helped me a-lot in the two months I’ve been on them. I don’t eat foods with preservatives I barely eat out and I do not eat fast food.. and low alcohol consumption. We all pick different journeys, but I had breast implants. I fully removed them almost a year ago. I can tell you they caused a lot of issues in my body and I’m not sure if all of it will recover or not. I’ve also been exposed to mold multiple times and I’m very sensitive to it. Lots of things can disrupt your hormones. I don’t know if taking hormone replacement can work for somebody if they’re living in mold though. Most likely it would be better to have it than not but a lot of the symptoms they talk about are similar to if you have mold in your home or work (or even breast implants or root canals)

How do you find a doctor? Every health provider and insurance website claims their doctors are specialists in everything. I saw an immunologist who was actually a pediatric immunologist whose employer told her she would see adults for scheduling efficiency. It’s not like you can just make an appointment and go. If they arent taking new patients with your insurance, they won’t see you. If you don’t have a referral from your primary care physician, they won’t see you. My PCP is only allowed by her employer to write referrals to physicians who also work for Summit.
