What other areas of wellness  women need to keep on the radar during menopause.


Weight Gain and Hormones:

The real reason why we gain weight during menopause:

  • Cortisol overrides other hormones and causes increased insulin, the fat storage hormone.
  • Reducing stress is key to lowering cortisol and managing weight.
  • Adaptogens like ashwagandha can help lower cortisol.


Natural Solutions:

Why Eileen recommends that women try the natural route versus take medication & ways to accomplish the natural element.

  • Essential oils like progesterone plus help hot flashes.
  • Detoxification with chlorella and lemon water is important.
  • Gut health from probiotics, prebiotics, and fermented foods is critical.
  • Anti-inflammatory diet with no processed foods or added sugars.


Areas of Focus:

  • Detoxification, gut, brain, liver, thyroid, adrenals, skin. Must be a holistic approach.
  • Toxins cause inflammation and hormone disruption.
  • Fragrances can lead to endometriosis and diabetes.


Adrenal Fatigue:

What is Adrenal Fatigue and how does this affect menopause?

  • Over-production of cortisol leads to adrenal fatigue.
  • Phases progress from overactivation to fatigue, aches, and round-the-clock exhaustion.
  • Adrenal fatigue goes unrecognized by mainstream medicine.


Key Takeaways

  1. Hormone imbalance during menopause can lead to weight gain, hot flashes, anxiety, depression, and more.
