  • Foggy thinking. Bad skin and weight gain. Try moringa powder and teas. Moringa powder is all natural and packed with minerals such as iron and zinc and magnesium. It is great for PMS and menopause and weight loss and anemia.

  • Does Clegenatur Methods really work? I see many people keep on speaking about Clegenatur Methods. But Im uncertain if it’s good enough to have bigger and firmer breast naturally.

  • My
    grandmother had Menopause. She was usually having hot flashes, vaginal dryness,
    headache, sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression. She was taking the allopathic
    drugs for the same but had no relief. One day I was surfing for the internet
    and got to know about Planet Ayurveda. I opened the site, online ordered
    ”Menopause care pack”. She is much better now.

  • Good lord it may help if the doctor didn’t look like she smacked her fod (forehead) on a bridge and the journalist ate the odd meal…. real women gain weight during the menopause.

  • I need to take medicines in order to sleep. This awful insomnia has irritated me for Nine months. I discovered this sleeping strategy from the physician. In only Five weeks of applying this sleep plan, I got the best sleep I never ever had. People who have experienced sleep problems for a while need to consider this. My sleeping routine every evening has improved significantly. I researched Google and found this tip on a website.. Name of the tip is Zoey Sυnodoz
    take care

  • Nice video. Thanks for sharing with us. In Ayurveda, the symptoms of menopause can be managed effectively. Planet Ayurveda offers Nari Kalyan Churna for the effective management of the symptoms of menopause.

  • Ive had menopause for 5 bloody stinking years.tried hrt no good tried herbs no good.im 3 stone over weight cant stop bloody eating im now on ads and they dont help.and just to top it all i get about30 hot flushes a day and night sweats!!! When the f*** does it end?????

  • How do you determine if it is perimenopause? I have gone to the doctor for my symptoms, I am 41 and started to feel a lot of anxiety, chest pain, heart palpitations, hair loss, and body burning sensation mainly. Are these perimenopause symptoms? I had never experienced anything like this. Thank you

  • Not sure if it is a great transition. My hormones have me happy and sad calm and panicking all in the same hour. Meditation does help.

  • I’m 53 and my doctor said I’m in the latter side of perimenopause. Doctor just told me to take estroven for nightsweats. Still get my period and awful night sweats. I went on lexapro to help with crippling anxiety. Helps so much ‼️

  • Thank you Doctor, very informative. Thank God I am feeling very well and normal, no hot flashes, sleeping well, feeling good in general.

  • I’m 47. I have missed my period for 2 months now. Negative pregnancy test. Sore chest,light headed at times. I have no idea. Advice

  • I honestly feel so bad for woman that go through this. Like everything is off balance and as a person that’s experienced a parent going through this, it just makes your mood so off.

  • To me moving on and finding Happiness has somewhat always been difficult for me! I Hope I get Happiness when I go through Menopause!

  • So… we have to go through puberty, which is hard, AND menopause, which is also hard? Aw, man. I’m going through puberty right now and do not want to have to deal with my body changing a lot again.

  • I have been in Peri menopause for 2 years now I’m 39. My quality of life is awful I have gained 65 pounds am constantly bloated tired brain fog night sweats and during the day. I feel like I’m 80 I barely sleep at night. Does anyone have any suggestions? I just want to feel like myself again. I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago but kept my right ovary due to stage 4 endometriosis. My ovary failed and put me in peri menopause. I have tried estrogen patches but the don’t react well with me. Was thinking about doing testosterone cream? Can anyone please help?

  • I was 35 when I was first told I was going through premature menopause, I’m now 45, and all of a sudden I am extreamly exhausted all the time, hot flashes day and night and wake up wet through in the morning. I wouldn’t say I’m moody but I am less patient than before. I was put on oral contraception when I was 35 as my GP said I was too young to go on HRT, thus help initially but now the exhaustion is debilitating I can’t stop sleeping. My hair as thinned so much and comes out when I brush it. Brain for is rediculas and doesn’t help with my psychology degree �� I feel like the menopause is ruining my life. Go advice me to go into HRT which I refused as I don’t do prescription medication but I can’t say I wasn’t tempted I’ve researched natural alternatives and have started on those 2 days ago. What I do notice is they help me sleep, so hopefully I’ll be feeling more rested in a few weeks time

  • Keep in mind, it’s not all doom and gloom. I went through menopause already and sailed through without ONE symptom. If your mom is still around, ask her what her experiences were, as these symptoms are highly hereditary from what I understand. Anyway, don’t just assume it’s going to be terribly difficult because it may not be! And by the way, not having your period is the best thing EVER! lol

  • Symptoms I have or had:
    Hot flashes and Night sweatsat times so bad I had to stop working and sit for a minute at my job. Night timehaving the window open in 26F weather cause I can’t cool off.
    Periodsdon’t have one for months then have one for days. Spotting for weeks.
    Anxeitynever had attacks before. At times so bad you feel your heart is going to come out of your chest.
    Jointssore as hell in the morning. I sometimes take pain relievers when it is really bad.
    Weight GainHard to get the lbs off and I gained over 15 lbs. I weight lift heavy and do cardio 5 to 6 days a week1 1/2 to 2 hrs in the gym.
    I even eat less now. It still is hard to lose. I have exercised my entire life.
    She says exercise more? I can’t do more than I do plus work a physically demanding job for 9 to 12 hrs.
    I know exercise does help and no caffeine. I quit caffeine 3 years ago.
    My joints still hurt but not as bad. Still have my messed up periods. Hot flashes are mostly in the summer and when it’s too hot.
    Still working on the weight.

  • My doctor told me I was too young! I go from mad to depressed so quickly. I believe this is what is going on. I’m 40. I started night sweats and hot flashes and my period was 3 weeks late. I bleed after sex and sometimes spot between periods for no reason. It has not been a joy at all.

  • I’mm 45, my mom passed away last yr and I have no siblings so I have no one to talk to about this. Once in a while my period gets wonky but for the most part regular. one month it might be heavy another month normal. right now I’m on day 4 ofmy period and it’s still bright red when it’s normally almost gone, I’ve had this once or twice in the last year. I still have cramps too. I have small fibroids as well which was found 2 yrs ago & I had a whole round of testing at that time and everything else was normal. the net said it’s perimenopause. I don’t get night sweats, or mood swings, I do have insomnia. I have no clue what is wrong with me or what to expect. It sometimes scares me that something is wrong. It sounds like in perimenopause your period can go longer than normal? I have no clue what’s happening to my body & I wish my mom was here to tell me what’s going on or what to expect.

  • Once you’re menopausal, you’re menopausal for the rest of your life. My goals to make the rest of your life the best of your life. I’m passionate about this topic, and. I started my treatment with Planet Ayurveda. I took “Menopause Care Pack” for an ayurvedic and natural solution to face problems in menopause.

  • My doctor basically said I just need to deal with it. Not cool. Peri menopause is miserable. I feel like I’m constantly pmsing. This is hell.

  • It is normal to gain weight in your 40’s or 50’s. You do not need to lose weight or cut calories. It is protective to have a little more weight as you age and your chances of surviving things such as a heart attack are better.

  • Sex activities???? I haven’t had a orgasm in like a year sweetheart, I need to try a new shower head and a back massager on high speed frfr bc I need to have a orgasm

  • But im losing weight, spotting for a week before periods. Horrible IBS during periods, no sleep. Foam or mucus type stool with farts. I feel like im worse than a bedridden patient. Lord help me im depressed n desperate

  • Stop believing that there is no cure or solution to Herpes virus. Of course there is a permanent cure for Herpes virus. I just got rid of my HSV 1 & 2 completely and permanently within just 7 days after following some certain protocols. The protocols I took were superb and fast. I’m super excited right now all thanks to Dr Aloha’s Herbal Remedy. You can reach Dr Aloha via his email: [email protected] gmail.com or Call/Text +1(202)871-3222

  • Can aching legs be a part of peri menopause? I have spent most of my life with bad PMS symptoms which always included back pain, pubic bone cramping and aching legs. Now I am getting this AFTER my period ends. What is going on? I want to exercise and my bottom half feels so sore I don’t feel like moving. Adding to it I have anxiety issues (always have but feels more so these days) AND I want to put my fist through the face of anyone who so much as beeps at me on the road. I feel like I am in hell. What do I do first to try and deal with this???

  • One thing no one mentions is heart palpitations, I went to the ER 3 times thinking I was having a heart attack and everything normal after having many tests, symptoms of rapid heart rate, blood pressure rise, nausea, light headedness, anemia and loss of appetite. I would still recommend getting checked if you have these symptoms but my end result was perimenopausal symptoms along with uterine fibroids, I’m really going through it smh

  • I feel like I’m going through this now. I’m 39, but dealing with severe anxiety and horrible night sweats. The sweats usually show up the week before my period and my period itself is getting all weird. I “start” a few days before I’m supposed to (so light that I don’t even have to wear anything), then it stops and starts full force within a few days of that initial “starting”. It’s so weird and I’m annoyed! ��

  • I’m 27. Was told that my period ends early due to how I was born. Hormones etc. Lack of oestrogen. They told me to go through IVF, however stated that it would still be difficult for it to work. That’s costly. And then they mentioned that they’d have to send the embryo (if they were to mix with the seeds of my future husband ) to a genetics unit, in case they want to remove any disabilities etc. That’s also costly. Also stated to have children due to “heart problems” or something. Meaning it could kill me?

    I keep getting irregular periods, and they don’t look normal, “colour-wise”. Always have been extremely painful. The doctors told me to go through IVF A.S.A.P so I can store whatever eggs I have remaining.

  • Hubby and I just watched this together. He is so supportive. He said “Wow” as everything fits me. I started to cry. I am definitely going through perimenopause. Thank you for helping us.

  • I went to the drs to give me advice about it, as I feel I’m on the start of it….the Dr didn’t take on board my symptoms, instead she just thought I was low…. I have all the symptoms, but not the sweats as yet… Bit annoyed that the Dr I saw didn’t really listen to me!

  • I’m going on 24 years of hot flashes and her description doesn’t even touch how miserable these things can be. The biggest help comes from bio identical hrt with small doses of testosterone and SSRI’s. Sweets and high carb meals make them especially severe and more frequent.������

  • How about letting women know there’s natural alternatives to these symptoms to ease a woman though peri menopause rather than suggesting medications? If a woman goes with complaints such as these, the doctor will send them to a psychiatrist for meds for mood after prescribing hormones etc…Don’t do it ladies! Please know there’s help and chemicals in medications are regulating your bodies into balance. All medications disrupt your physiology. Stop pushing the idea of pharmaceuticals as an answer to women’s health complaints and instead give them hope and health with out toxic meds

  • Good advice Dr.i went to see my doctor.but sadly I just got a lot of leaflets.very sad excuse as my doctor was just 32.she said it’s normal but when your looking for help that’s not helpful.i had more luck On youtube. So god bless you for your advice.

  • Hot flashes and night sweats are driving me crazy, my Dr recommended soy milk ew and evening primrose oil caps, will try it for a month see if anything changes for the better.

  • I can’t take hormones. I’m allergic to them. My organs shut down one by one. So there’s nothing I can do. Any non hormonal treatments available

  • I too is having Hot Flashes and have been for roughly 7 years. I have 5 sisters but myself and the 3rd oldest have them severe. I could say most days it is awful. But it is every day and night, awful. The only time I had some relief was when I had a procedure called Hormone Pelleting. It did work for me with no known side effects. But I have moved away from the area/city where it was performed. So, now I am suffering as well as my husband. But he tries help!

  • I’m sorry but this is not good advice. I take cool to cold showers. I never eat spicy food. I wear shorts and tank cotton tops. I take Hormone replacement therapy. I take gabapentin. I take ssri cymbalta. I live in Seattle where it’s cool and cloudy and I’m drowning in sweat every hour.. help me!!

  • Why do we women get all this issues while guys are just getting nothing really!!! Tell me again why women need men?? Oh yes, reproducing… Wonk wonk… lol

  • I need to know how can I tell that my periods are going to stop or get lighter. I am 52 and have periods closer. I am so tired!! I need to know the sighs that they will stop soon. ��
    I have been told to have hysterectomy but I might be so close to end of periods. I am so confused as to what to do.

  • Hot flashes!!!!!!!!! Kills me ������I’m a front line health care worker and as soon as I put on my PPE here comes my deadly hot flashes!!! I feel like that I’m inside an oven. All night long me and my husband has the debate. I turn on the AC and the fan but I’m still sweating and my husband is freezing �� I’m having my private summer all day long. So I started consuming flax seeds and hope it’s going to work for me. So ladies good luck! Let’s face this crisis ��

  • I just turned 51 and I want my cycle back….never thought I’d ever say something so insidious. These hot flashes are 45 minutes to an hour apart all day and night��.

  • I began my hotflashes one year ago. They can be pretty miserable. The other might I had such bad ones that it brought me to tears! Last night, I didn’t get to sleep until 7 am. I combatted the flashes for FIVE hours. It was bad.
    I describe it as drinking a very hot bowl of soup and the heat just radiates from your head, neck and chest.

  • A woman’s life is coursed, i have experienced fainting, serious back pain and serious cervical pain and temporary paralysis during my cycle. Now i am over 40 and experiencing night sweats. I came across a great Herbalist who recommended Moringa droplets and powders. It is all natural and packed with minerals such as iron and zinc and magnesium. Minerals helps with digestion and reducing hormonal imbalances in a womans body. No soy or caffeine in moringa.

  • Thanks for this info….its straight to the point….many times I see these videos about hot flashes it takes ages to get to the point…. blessings…..this too will pass….IN JESUS NAME
