After 4 years of helping menopausal women just like you, I’ve broken down my secrets of success for eliminating their hot flashes, getting them to sleep soundly through the night, and getting them to feel like themselves again. By following these 5 foolproof steps, you can take control of your health, your body, and your life, and start living the life that you’ve only fantasized about in your wildest dreams!
Let’s not kid ourselves and think that your life is going to change overnight, but I can guarantee you that if you follow these 5 foolproof steps, that you will see long-lasting relief of your menopausal symptoms within a few weeks to a few months, depending on the severity of your individual case.
Are you ready to change your life? Let’s get started!
1. Healthy hormones need real food: Healthy hormones are made from the proper raw materials, especially healthy fats. Our body has the amazing ability to re-balance itself, but only if it has the right building blocks. It needs all sorts of fancy sounding, scientifically studied chemicals to work at exactly the right time in exactly the right amount to make the exact amount of hormones needed in your body at this exact moment in time. This sounds complicated, confusing, and impossible to figure it out, and it is if you’re choosing to take artificial supplements or medications.
So what do you do next?

2. Healthy hormones need efficient digestion: It’s a complete waste of time, taste, and effort to eat all that delicious and nutritious food if it’s not going to be put to good use. Just because you are putting the proper building blocks into your mouth doesn’t necessarily mean that they are making it into your bloodstream to get to where they need to be.
3. Healthy hormones need a clean colon: You may be wondering why I’m talking about your bowel movements when I should be talking about hormones, and it’s because a bowel movement is the quickest way of getting rid of waste and toxins that are impeding your way to healthy hormones. All of the waste from your bloodstream (the highway for your hormones) gets processed through the liver (like a toll booth on the highway), and that waste concentrates as bile and is released into your small intestine during digestion. If this garbage is not moving through the remaining 20 feet of large intestine quick enough, it will just be re-absorbed into the bloodstream again, and gets to make a return trip back to the liver to wreak more havoc with your hormones. This is not exactly your quickest way to freedom from hot flashes!
4. Healthy hormones need a happy liver: Ah, the liver, perhaps the most under-rated organ in the body when it comes to healthy hormones. The liver is responsible for filtering all the blood in your body, making bile for proper fat digestion, sorting out the nutrients that you eat, de-activating the toxins that you shouldn’t have eaten (or slathered on your body, but that’s a story for another day!), processing all medications, and for conjugating (a fancy word for putting together) certain hormones in your body. If you have cleaned up your diet, your digestion and colon are working like a dream, and you are still having hot flashes, you need to help your liver out!
5. Healthy hormones need a stress management strategy: Your body only has a certain amount of energy to work with on a daily basis, just like there are only 24 hours in a day. Your body also has certain things that it needs to do, like making sure your heart beats, your lungs are breathing, you have a certain blood sugar level so that your brain doesn’t die … you know, the bare necessities! After these essentials, the next priority is survival, which is where our stress hormones come into play.
You stress hormones activate when you’re crossing a busy intersection and you almost get run over, or maybe when you get home from work and the dishwasher wasn’t unloaded. Sometimes this doesn’t leave any energy left over to make sure that your sex hormones are balanced, and when these get out of balance, you have hot flashes. You need to figure out how to change your response to external stress, which sounds hard, but so did learning how to ride a bike when you were 6 years old. Managing stress is a skill that can be learned and practiced, and there are many ways to manage your stress depending on your personality.
