  1. Hi thank you so much for the session. I am just starting perimenopause and I’m having hot flashes and gaining a little weight. I also feel like I am more brain foggier than usual. I’m wondering what I can naturally do to balance my hormones. I started drinking soy milk because I heard that it has natural estrogen. What are your thoughts on that And what symptoms might it help? Also are there other natural remedies to the other hormones that are unbalanced? I’m at high risk for breast cancer so for me until there’s more research HRT is out of the question

  2. Hey, thanks for your comment. There are so many things to do for natural hormone balance. Soy can help to regulate estrogen levels a little bit, so you might notice a decrease in hot flashes or night sweats or even vaginal dryness. Without knowing you as individual, it’s hard to give recommendations for hormones because there are so many hormones.

  3. Great session. It’s the first time I’ve experienced anxiety and heart palpitations turning 48 and so resonate with this and the fluctuations we see.

    1. Hey,

      Brain fog can be due to a lot of factors – lack of sleep, low cortisol, blood sugar issues, fatigue in general, nutrient deficiencies and more. For specific symptoms, it’s always important that we get to the WHY and that will guide the what to do about it. I hope that makes sense. There are also a class of herbs called nootropics. Without knowing anything about your body or medical history, I am unable to know if these are a good idea for you, but something to potentially look into. Always consult your medical provider before starting new supplements.

  4. Hi – I had a hysterectomy/oophorectomy in my 30s, and have been on HRT (estradiol patch) since then. I guess at some point my doctor will take me off it. Any advice on what that kind of sudden, complete menopause will look like, and advice on alleviating symptoms?

    1. Hey,

      First, I ALWAYS recommend using progesterone with estradiol to counterbalance it and keep it in check. Without progesterone, the risks increase. Getting off estradiol is a nuanced conversation that needs to be complete with discussing the risk factors that you as an individual have – blood clotting disorders, cancer in your family, osteoporosis in your family, alzheimer’s/dementia, etc. After you stop the estradiol, you will go into menopause. Menopause looks different for all women, but just know there are so many supplements and lifestyle factors that can really help support your body and alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, anxiety, vaginal dryness, etc.

  5. Hi I really appreciate your explanations for the hormones it really helped. I am currently on a deep dive to figure out my hormone issues because I have PCOS, and I was wondering if you had any advise for someone who has had these issues her whole life? I’m honestly looking forward to menopause, not that I’m wanting it but it seems like maybe then I’ll get a break! Thanks for your session.

    1. Hey,
      I’m sorry to hear you’ve struggled with this for awhile. PCOS is commonly misunderstood, but again, there are so many things that can be done for it. There are actually different types of PCOS such as insulin-resistant PCOS, post-birth control PCOS, inflammatory PCOS and adrenal PCOS. For the treatment of PCOS, we need to know which type we have. This can be done by both objective (labs) and subjective data (symptoms). Once we know what type you’ve been dealing with, then we can start to treat that and the syndrome will start to dissipate. I work with patients on this very often! I have a lot of podcast episodes on this on The Ali Damron Show podcast.
