      Hi Vitoria

      Some great advice already given.  Of course we are all different and what works for one person will not necessarily give such a good result with someone else.

      I have a 5 Steps to a Better Menopause guide I am happy to share if this would be of interest?

      I had a very difficult time which I now know was exacerbated by my drinking (6 years sober now) and I wish I had been given the tips I am offering you!

      Take care

      I had an early menopause brought on by treatment for breast cancer, so no HRT for me. I found limiting spicy food, sugar and removing alcohol from my diet works for me but that may be a personal thing. I also find swimming works for the joint and muscle pain. I changed my skin care too and that helped with the dry skin

      Definitely do the Evening Primrose Oil, highest dosage you can find. I also took something called black cohosh, which definitely helped with the hot flushes.

      I tried HRT, but it made my personality change for the worse (according to my husband!) so gave it up after a couple of months.

      Keep hydrated, and always, always, carry spare underwear and sanitary protection. I actually changed to using a Mooncup for the final 2 years of my periods, and would recommend this.

      I had breast lumps that were hormonal- and I was very moody. Specialist who checked breasts (eliminated cancer) said to take massive dose evening primrose oil. took 10 a day until periods stopped . unbelievable difference: no lumps, no mood swings and feeling of coping.  HRT made me vicious- daughters made me stop!

        Hi, Breast lumps and fibroids can be alleviated with Lugols iodine in pure water up to 50mgs per day. That resolves to 3 drops of 15% Lugols and also take a quarter teaspoon of sea salt in a glass of water. Also necessary is selenium and this can be taken as 3 Brazil nuts or indeed supplements ….That’s everyday. Very easy to take as it resets the endocrine system and hence hormones. Hope this helps.

      Yes natural is always best but didn’t work for me unfortunately. However as the other lady said, dietary changes and exercise are a huge help.

      Hi Victoria


      I have been through menopause myself and I have worked in the menopause space for the last two years which was a journey started because I was also struggling and looking for relief. What I have learned in my journey is that whether you take HRT or not the foundations of your diet and lifestyle can make a huge difference to your symptoms being improved. I can point you to lots of helpful information which has helped me to remove 99% of my symptoms. Please reach out if I can help at all.

        Hi Lisa I would be very interested to hear how you removed 99% of your symptoms? I suffer quite badly from mood swings/depression definitely worse since menopause started, I don’t want to take HRT 😊
