  • when my mother suffers from this problem at the age of 48 she got several symptoms like hot flushing, sweating at night, panic, anxiety, depression then after prescribing from the she starts to take menopause care pack by planet ayurveda.

  • I’m premenopausal, I just got off the birth control, and yr. No period for a year, I got it in my 49, so if I take estrogen to conceive? What kind of herb can I take?? My doctor want to do a ultrasound, or should I do detox my body??

  • I started experiencing ALL the symptoms of menopause after my Uterine Fibroid Embolization procedure a couple months ago. I requested a blood work by my Primary Doctor to figure out what is going on with my body, but the tests came back normal (FSH & LH) ��. I’m miserable and feel so alone and misunderstood…so I’m glad I came found this page for the support. In the meantime, I was prescribed anti-depressants until me and my doctor can figure out a plan of action. I’m definitely going to try that progesterone cream.

  • I have been following only some of the suggestions from Dr. Anna and I sleep better and have lost 3 pounds. Thank you so much. ��

  • The last year of my perimenopause was the worst time of my life. High levels of anxiety, breast pain, heavy periods, mood changes and don’t forget shortness of breath. That is a big one!! I l literally convinced myself that i was always on the verge of a heart attack or stroke due to the heart palps and difficulty breathing. Ladies, vitamin D and probotics were a huge help during this time, also vitamin B12. I am now in menopause and the symptoms are not that bad, but the last year was horrible. Good luck ladies, stay strong, you’ve got this!

  • She nailed it at the end with the Doctor advice. I was told by my primary and Gyno that I was to young. I was 40 when I first mentioned to my primary. Then two years later spoke to my Gyno who wanted to put me on Prozac. I have an extreme high sensitivity to any anti d’s and birth controls. I asked about getting blood work done. She said it’s not accurate. She then suggested progesterone cream. I told her I would research it more before I decided. I then emailed her a week later and told her I was interested in it and asked her to write me the prescription. She said you can order it on Amazon and didn’t recommend an exact brand to me. I was shocked. I am now 43 going on 44. I defiantly know I am going through Perimenopause. Follow your heart ladies. This woman knows her info. Thank you for posting this. ��

  • Emmmmmm interesting am in my 40s am 46 and am going through hell I don’t know what to or not to what to eat and what not eat am always depressed anxiousness anxiety it’s been a like I don’t knowoooo pains in my shoulders oh my God in will so happy if someone can help me

  • I found out last September through yearly blood work that my estrogen was very low so I went to my gynecologist and she prescribed perm pro and it seemed to work but I gained 20lbs right away ��. It also started making me have night sweats and a really short temper so I stopped it and started estroven OTC but would love to be feel normal and happy again because I sure don’t.

  • Hi,I had womb cancer march 2018 so I had a full hysterectomy and remove cervix and ovaries,since then my life’s been awful.My doctor said I can’t have hrt as it might start cancer again so I’ve just be left to deal with it.. please help me

  • Awesome…this is so helpful. I am grateful this conversation popped up in my feed. She really did help us!! No one went into this with me…and I’m a nurse…she is so spot on regarding fixing the other baseline stuff first. Totally answered why I have lost my cute butt and now have a menopot instead!

  • the problem is everyones body is different. No 1 thing will work for everyone. There are so many symptoms with menopause. I know I have had a swirl of changes for the past 2 years but zero hot flashes.. I think for my its cortisol levels. I used to live a very vivacious life hiking 10 miles/ dog walking, dancing etc. even though I ate well balanced whole food (never coffee no drinking) and did yoga and meditate through prayer… Did things that others say help, didnt help. I crashed with major fatigue, brain fog, dizziness, mood swings, joint pain…suddenly my body refused to move literally too exhausted to walk 100 yards. suddenly craving junk food and sugar couldn’t concentrate enough to meditate or read… I have tried many supplements: black cohosh, chasteberry, dhea, ginseng, ashgawanda, chayawanprash, dang gui, diascorea/wild yam, seed cycling, vit b, magnesium…. ugh. I enen use hormone blend of essential oil…. For me I need to just learn to slow down or my body would force it upon me. Not I learned I should eat more often:)

  • You’re right, suffering from menopause is not necessary, just change your diet and you will no longer have hot flashes. Hormon therapy is unnecessary, waste of money and time.

  • All of these symptoms began end of 2018 at age 43 years old, it started with my periods slightly changing length of days + time it would come. Next in 2019 age 44 years old were the terrible aches and pains all over, insomnia and night sweats. The weight gain began before 40, but suddenly some weight loss mid 2019. I tried keto for 3 months and lost weight, almost like resetting my metabolism, much of the pain went away. Unfortunately I developed pcos and adenomyosis (reproductive issues) both incurable. The pcos caused multiple cysts and one on an ovary had ruptured. All of this is hormone driven. My obgyn didn’t and still doesn’t want to do anything, but sit and wait. In the meantime my primary sent me for a mammogram and I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Hormone receptor positive 95% estrogen influenced. This is nuts. I encourage all to do whatever it takes to balance your hormones and if your current doctor is of no help, please find someone that you’re happy with. Take care.

  • I’m taking Transition.. it’s all natural. I think I’m doing better. I mean I’m not annoyed by my husband eating doritos but I did tell off a few people recently. Very calm and collectively, but I had absolutely no filter. My husband is either laughing at me or frightened. I’m really goin through a crazy menopause.. I’m 49. In some ways I do like that I don’t care about hurting people’s feelings who manipulate me to do what they want me to do…that’s something I kinda like…��

  • I found the new book of the woman in this video and just ordered it. I got the link and came back over here to post it, in case anyone else needs it. She also offers one on one consultations that I just saw on her website for about $250 USD to determine what your problems are. (I haven’t tried it as I can’t afford that.) ��

    I hope this book helps as much as the video because I’m tired of feeling like crap. Here you go, sisters.*

  • I am angry at my doctor. At 40, 4 years ago, I told him (a Yale graduate) I was having so many issues and he said I was way too young for perimenopause. My doctors all blamed my smoking. I got so disgusted I stopped going to the docs. A doc tested my hormones once and said, “nope, it’s normal.” 4 years later, here are my symptoms which have only gotten worse:

    URINARY:
    Sudden urge to pee starting in 2014 and gradually worsening over the years. It’s now getting to the point that it comes on immediately out of nowhere, and I’m using every muscle in my body to hold it. My eyes suddenly do this… �� and I have to get to the bathroom within 10 seconds and am in agony until I reach the bathroom, and it’s already ready to pour out like a waterfall
    Random aching of pelvic area while peeing. Sometimes it feels like a kidney stone.

    NERVE PAIN:
    Severe burning in a toe every few days that lasts for several days, which has progressed to now nerve pains in feet, and legs. It disappears, then reappears days later. Last year I had random pins and needles in legs, which progressed to arms and hands, and randomly disappeared after about 4 or 5 days.

    MENTAL HEALTH:
    Anxiety attacks worsened, even got better, then worse again.
    Depression constantly.
    Anger & intolerance
    No patience

    MENSTRUAL:
    Spotting on and off for days, which never have before. This started a couple months ago. I’m on the POP pill for years, bc docs won’t let me go back on regular pills which I’ve been on since I was 16 to regulate my period. If I’m more than an hour late taking my pill, I’m spotting 2 days later and sometimes get sharp pains like I have ovarian cysts twisting or something.

    SKIN:
    A mole I’ve had for 25 years randomly turned dry and scaly. Went to a dermatologist and she said “it’s a wart.” No it’s not, genius. That is a mole that got dry during a hormone flare-up.

    PHYSICAL:
    Queasy on and off randomly.
    Weight fluctuations.
    Major craving for sugar.
    Migraines & TMJ
    -Sensitivity to heat/cold

    SLEEP
    -Sleeping disturbances

    Anyone else have a similar pattern? I am losing my mind.

  • Thanks for this. Yeah, I just finished a 1 hour video about HR and side affects over time and only Premarin and Progestin were covered. The usual, increase risks of heart attacks, blood clots, etc. Not a word about Progesterone, only that there are no comparative clinical studies..well,..why not??

  • Hi I’m 49 perimenopausal, suffering allergic rhinitis, my rhinitis worse, i have breathing problem, i felt i have asthma, I’m always crying i felt I’m dying.
    My symptoms started January14,2020.
    I’m always research what i need to do, what i need to eat and supplements i need to take.
    First time i experienced symptoms, i thought i have severe illness and I’m dying. ����������������
    Until now I’m searching how to lessen my palpitations, anxiety, sleep problem, shortness of breath,
    Tingling, dizziness, feeling vomiting, fatigue.
    Doctor here in the Philippines cannot help me, they always told me to help my self. That’s why I’m here. I need help, thanks in this video.

  • So interesting. I had soaking night sweats 10 years ago but I didn’t drink alcohol. Now my periods switched from 2-3 weeks ( for 2 yrs) to 5-7 weeks apart and now drink red wine.
    My mom has ONE hot flash, NO night sweats and her periods just stopped…. I’m not having the same experience. My transition is definitely dragging on.

  • My last period was aged 38, I was told too young for menopause. I’ve had no help, just struggled through, offered antidepressants ��

  • Progesterone doesn’t do squat when your estrogen is through the roof. Birth control pills literally saved my life as I became severely anemic from the blood loss even with 300mg of prometrium each night. I feel like a new person on the birth control. I’m still bitter that I wasted time trying the natural crap and suffering.

  • Thank you so much for having Anna come on to your channel. This is kind of emotional to watch because I am 36 and I have been diagnosed with premenopause after thinking I was pregnant for the first time. It is hard and I have no one to talk to or ask questions because even my doctor seems confused by it. I am so happy to see they are people like Anna. We need more people like her because this is an overlooked part of a woman’s life.. you don’t really hear anyone talking about it unless they are making jokes about their hot flashes.

  • I’ve had five beautiful children and I find that I have similar symptoms as anxiety and moodiness during post partum phases. I wish there was more information about this also.

  • So my wife of over 17 years just turned 40 last month and out of nowhere she started with hot flashes and was suffering with insomnia, so I did the natural “guy” thing and figured I had done something wrong and took it very personally since I essentially got pushed to the side and felt very much ignored. It was such a drastic change I seriously thought she was/is planning to leave me for some reason. I asked several times what did I do and she got frustrated and said it’s not me it’s just part of life. So once I got off my pity party and stopped internalizing it all I started to research peri menopause and all the fazes associated with this part of a woman’s life and I can honestly say I seriously feel so bad for you all having to deal with it, and from a guys prospective I just want to say we seriously do care and would love nothing more than to help! The nature tendency for us is to “fix” it and I now know it’s kind of out of our control other than just being here for support and understanding. Unfortunately my wife is still kind of pushed me to the side and I feel very much alone most of the time. Eventually I hope so much she will open back up to me and I am allowed to assist her and be there for her. Is there any advice some of you out there would give me in helping her thru this time in our lives?? Thanks so much in advance!

  • Just an FYI, that my menopause symptoms were so severe that I gave up caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, all white sugar and white flour, etc. I was so desperate to reduce the symptoms and I can tell you that giving up those things did not make any difference in my symptoms except depress me even more than I already was. And I gave them up for almost 2 years with no relief of the symptoms. I also tried all of the herbal remedies from a Natural Path for those 2 years and they did not help except keep me broke as they are very costly. In the end, I went on a estrogen replacement therapy and in 1 week my symptoms were significantly reduced. After 3 weeks, I no longer had any more symptoms. I reclaimed my life again. For those suffering, check out Menopause Barbie as she talks about all of the options and the pros and cons of each.

  • Thank you for organizing this fantastic “guest” speaker, who is intelligent, qualified and reasonable giving advice! Very generous ladies. Thanks Dr. Garrett:) Good Karma for you. Please have a follow-up to this, and bring Dr. G back. Not enough good quality info. out there to help us. I am not a fan of Dr. Menopause Barbie. Blessings.

  • What an amazing video! Thank you Dani for expanding your channel and adding such valuable information. I started this transition at 36, with no place to go and the medical doctors (my personal doctor and my OBGYN) all told me I was depressed and needed meds.. knowing myself, I knew I wasn’t depressed. I found Dr. Northrop’s (sp?) book and found some hope. 10 years later, still dealing with this (ugh) however, this has provided a wealth of information and things I can implement going forward. Until you have a hot flash you’ll never understand what it means to have a personal summer �� Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Marsha

  • Well I’m almost 59 & have not had any of these symptoms yet, I did have broken heart syndrome in 2015 due to issues with my husband,it took me 2years to get better from that. When I was 48 I had to look at my weight I was285 lbs & had tried everything I could throughout the years,kept getting fatter,( there is truth in what this lady spoke of w/ the food). It took me 18 months to loose 128 lbs, on the 2008 Canada food guide. I first learned how to eat properly, it took 4 months once I knew that, the weight fell off, then I added exercise. I had bad arthritis in my knees,& could not do the gym, so I walked ( & my grandson was. In a buggy so that helped) I was pretty slow, but kept going! I really think that going through all of this, it changed my body, I no longer have issues with my arthritis, as I am still a daily walker & I had no idea how powerful it is not just physical, but the mental is amazing, my body is moving, but it’s my mind that’s getting the workout! I think women tend to do everything for everyone else & forget about ourselves,& get forced to look at ourselves when something happens with our health. U GOT THIS LADYS! take it slow, get your health back. All the best ❤️������M

  • I am 44 and i had a baby when i was 40, my period was always between 21 and 18 days ( short cycle) lately i get hot flashes and nightsweats ( i had it in my 30’s too) but last year i had like pain on my chest and anxiety

  • Sadly I am on the back end of this menopause thing and cannot get any docs in my area to prescribe HRT for me even though there are physicians on YouTube that I have heard speak about this being a protectant for worse conditions as we age. Does this doctor do consultations?

  • Wow I’m so glad I found this interview. My family’s been in COVID-19 self isolation for the last 3 weeks. Two of those, I’ve been experiencing nearly all of the symptoms explained here. Ramping up of hot flushes, night sweats, irritability, anxiety, mild incontinence, chronic hair loss and fatigue. Some of these symptoms have only just started and some are chronic but possibly confused with WLS. But most of these symptoms I’m now experiencing. Imagine starting hot flushes for the first time within the COVID-19 disaster, it’s so confusing! I knew I was peri menopausal, but it’s getting worse, and suddenly. And I have no family history of menopause, both my mother and Grandmother passed away young, and I have one sister who was born with special needs and has never experienced periods. I’m left a bit lost for experience. I’ve joined the Facebook group, and now might do some research into this phase of life that seems to have struck me hard. Desperate for a natural solution. As far as calorie count, I had a gastric bypass 14 months ago so my calorie count is limited regardless. I’ve also lost 63kg, so I’m in a far better place to be dealing with this phase. Thanks very much for the information, it’s been very helpful. Open to any recommendations proven effective. Kind regards, Annette from South Australia

  • I take magnesium & melatonin at night to sleep. Works very well. I’m in post menopause. Thank you for such a great video! Very informative.

  • MENOPAUSE HAPPENS TO WOMEN BECAUSE THEY ALLOW THE MALES TO HAVE SEX AND BREED WITH THEM BEFORE THEY ARE FULL GROWN AT 45 YEARS OF AGE. IT TAKES 45 YEARS TO ACHIEVE A FULL GROWN MATURE ADULT WOMAN READY FOR BREEDING. BREED BEFORE THIS AND MENOPAUSE HAPPENS. FACT I AM NOW PROOVING!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Omg I knew alcohol was affecting me. I have really bad hot flashes so embarrassing and uncomfortable all during day and I’m awake all nite on off with them. They went n now came back. It’s alcohol affecting me I think as i never drank at all and honestly i am stressed and upset so i have peri almost total menopause and I was drinking2cure stress!! I know!����I knew it was never gonna cure stress but the odd1 gin n tonic is ok4me I believe but1is enough!
    I have a lovely new boyfriend keeps pushing2nd n 3rd drink on me paying2b nice. I keep telling him I don’t drink like that. When I tell him alcohol causing hot flashes he’ll get it! I’m a good influence on him as he’s walking with me, cooking with and for me and he’s cutting down alcohol with view2giving it up with me. He wants2lose weight and as we both get older he, like me, wants 2b healthy! He’s a good guy. He works hard manually and his treat was the pub in Ireland! Btw he says he’s saving money and losing weight with me so he’s happy!!!������‍♂️��

  • So I can just go buy progesterone cream at a pharmacy with no Rx? Thought I needed Rx. My sister swears by it. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I too was wondering why alcohol was affecting me so much. Not so much the immediate effect but the after effect is SUPER-marked. As a smoker, I thought birth control was a no-no so was puzzled as to why OBGN put me on DEPO shot-so good to know why it’s safe and pill is not. Yeah-noticing fat climbing from my bum to my small back. Having cardiopulmonary symptoms-good to know dropped progesterone tweaks my heart (not that smoking helps), because the cardio symptoms vary by day. Fine one day, and feeling like heart disease the next (getting winded doing nothing, feeling choked, palitations, vertigo, seeing stars, excessive fatigue). When I felt energetic and healthy the day before and busting a move, working up a sweat just fine the day before. THANK you for letting us know the hormones fluctuate daily-explains a LOT. I devloped endometreosis-that’s what kicked off mine. Before that was blood tinge with ovulation that started in my late 30’s and gradually got worse. I just turned 43 yesterday. I am SO lazy, disorganized, unmotivated, getting migraines, PMS. Just YUCK-opposite myself. I just want myself back. Looks like I have ten more years, unless this was creeping up on me before I turned 40 and I’m actually close to the end. I usually experience pain (bad side ache) with ovulation. Not sure but think it has been more than 1 cycle. I am also not having raging bull labido with what should be ovulation-that recently stopped too I had 2 periods for 2 months straight, after having the endometriosis for over a year. Only 1 night sweat. Any hot flash is done in a few seconds. Breast tenderness was only 6 months. Wish I knew how far along I am in this process. After two double periods, I don’t even know when to expect one. So periods have been whacko since early 2018. The psychological symptoms are my main bother. Yuck. Thank you for clarifying. Had no idea what was wrong with me-total opposite of typical self. Whew. Been scary. Thank you for easing my mind-teriffic.

  • THANK YOU FOR THIS! I will be listening to this over and over.

    Even though the video is from 2018, info is still relevant. Happy to see this is still available. Thank you Dani ❤����

  • I’m 51, been on the Keto diet since January lost 11 pounds. I eat plenty, stopped the gym, just walk for the moment, no hotsweats, feel energized. When you cut out sugar �� so many health issues go away.

  • I so so wish that I had this info. In my 40’s, I have suffered for years in peri menopause. I am now in post.women need to watch this awesome video, and educate themselves and also totally agree about the questions that need to be asked by drs about peri menopause symptoms! Thank you so much for this info.!

  • Omgoodness…aside from loving your videos personality and recipes finding this on your playlist almost had me to tears! I went thru a full hysterectomy @38 it’s been a 2yr journey���� (praying�� every month is so unpredictable for me, however my body is extremely sensitive this is why I LOVE your recipes����
    Point is THANK YOU for doing this. Just the few minutes on describing the “symptoms” of the different hormones is valuable information. Again can’t thank you enough wish I would’ve seen this early 2019. Keep up the good work!����

  • thank you ladies, Drs., this was very informative and helpful! I had no idea that perimenopause caused anxiety and I’ve been suffering with it from mid-40’s to now 51, I believe I’m still in the peri stage and good to know about the alcohol! thank you thank you.

  • May I suggest that drinking Almond milk, and eliminating foods with hormones in them really helps decrease the extra hormones we don’t need in our diet. I changed to non dairy, no poultry with hormones and no caffeine from sodas (sugary drinks) helped me considerably. And I’m in my fifties with no more hot flashes.

  • Really interesting, and so well done Dani. Been watching you for a while and this popped up on my stream, and being nearly 50 is very relevant. Great video, you asked all the right things in an intelligent and professional way. Thank you both.

  • I just started following Menopause Barbie on Youtube as my Menopause was horrendous. She is a Gyneologist that specializes in Menopause. She has a series of videos that talks about what is happening in your body, the many symptoms of menopause and what can be done about it. Believe me, there is a lot that can be done and we do not have to suffer at all. For those that are suffering or just want to know more, check out her videos. Life changing.

  • Thank you somuch I wish I had known some of these facts. So true the doctor dont educate you to all these facts. I just turn 52 and just started hot flashes. Im going through prosmenopause I just want it to stop.

  • Lovely Video clip! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Sonsaiah Nonpareil Superiority (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great exclusive guide for attracting amazing ladies using this simple pheromone trick without the normal expense. Ive heard some super things about it and my work colleague at very last got cool results with it.

  • I’ve had my period and spotting ever since. Two weeks. I’m so scared but I’m 54 and my period has been regular pretty much forever. I’ve noticed some minor changes but I believe this is my doorway into menopause finally now.

  • My mom and all her friends went plant vegan. They anti age and to much energy to be around. Hahaha.
    Organic soy is fine as it actually blocks bad estrogens.
    Lots of organic fruits with fruit flesh and skin. No juicing, but smoothies with water or org plant milks.
    Not having animal hormones, animal vaccines and antibiotics help even woman and men out mentally and physically.
    Load up on org fruits, salads, veggies, herbs, seeds, nuts, beans and rice. Pastas must be organic so they don’t have Roundup poisons. ( Look up law suits)
    Also unplug your wifi from the wall every night. Turning it off does nothing. It still runs disturbing sleep. Hire a vegan Healer and cleans and detox.

  • I was on antidepressants for a short time when perimenopause symptoms were a mystery. Gave them up within months, worthless to me. Embarked on studying nutrition but even in those circles no one tells you what this lovely lady just explained. And it’s so simple, so much suffering for no reason.

  • Omg!!!! I have hot flashes, sweats, weight gain, mood swings, etc it’s horrible �� im going into nine months without period. Yes anxiety, can’t breath etc. It’s just been getting worst the last two years. Btw I’m 48. I want it to all go away!

  • Sitting here after waking up after only two hours of ‘sleep’ bawling, wondering if this is normal….and this video helped so very much. Thank you.

  • Hi am 34, i lost my period for about two years now and the doctor said is premature ovarian failure and my womb are small in size is there any thing I can do to get my period back

  • Wow! Dr. Anna Garret is on point! Everything she says from the beginning was true! In 2017, I was bleeding heavily twice a month that lasts 9-11 days. The doctor gave me all kinds of test and concluded that I am going through premenopause. He prescribed birth control pills to ease and regulate the bleeding. Currently I am working on eating healthy balanced meals plant-based nutrition regimen. This podcast is the answer to my prayer. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing. Sending you love and all the great wishes in the world xoxo

  • I remember getting really hot flushes and struggling to breathe and that happened for awhile when I turned 47 and I started not wanting to leave the house now I know what was going on. Thanks so much for this video.

  • The average person can have sweet potatoes.People that are insulin resistant and diabetic can not!People with other autoimmune disease can not.Its not a one size fits all with nutrition.Thank you for your help Dr.Anna��

  • Dr. Anna Garrett is harming people by insisting on toxic substances. Many food contains the same but healthier versions of hormones that Dr. Garret is using. Menopause is caused by imbalances of hormones do to food intake and tolerance.

  • Thank you! So much I’m able to grasp… conversational and the info just flows:) A few months ago, my body started this weird cycle where when I’d bed at 10:00, I would wake up at 1:00 AM and could not get back to sleep even with a Magnesium supplement which had worked like a charm. Maddening people!!! I now shut the cellphone off by 8:00,settle my night down, take my pm supplements, get lavender diffuser goin’ and off to beddy bye by 9:00 / 9:30…but I still wake up way ahead of schedule!!!��
