Navigating Perimenopause and Menopause: A Guide to Empowered Change

Navigating Perimenopause and Menopause: A Guide to Empowered Change


Cycles and phases are to women as seasons are to nature. Welcome to our next journey through women's health where we'll dive into Perimenopause and Menopause, two significant phases of a woman's life that with knowledge and support can be incredibly liberating. Whether you're experiencing it yourself or supporting someone in your life, understanding what is happening can shift the experience for everyone, from one that has traditionally been hushed and medicated to one that is empowering and as welcome as the changing of the season.


Creating a Sanctuary For Change

Perimenopause signifies a profound adjustment in a woman's life, marking the stage before the completion of the menstrual cycle known as menopause. This period reflects not simply a transition but a significant shift in the delicate balance of hormones that have regulated the rhythm of a woman's reproductive potential. At the heart of this adjustment are the natural variances in estrogen and progesterone, hormones that have seamlessly directed the cycle of menstruation and fertility through the years. As we delve into this extraordinary phase, we honor the resilience and poise with which the female body navigates this evolution.


Duration and Onset

The journey through perimenopause is unique to everyone, typically unfolding across 4 to 10 years. It often begins in a woman's 40s, with a variety of changes that may start quietly in the mid to late 30s. We can empower ourselves through understanding and acknowledging that while we share this path, each woman dances to her own rhythm through these years.



As hormone levels begin to fluctuate, your period will start to become irregular and your symptoms of perimenopause may arrive irregularly too. You might have hot flashes or night sweats at some times and not others and as the delicate balance of hormone production and balance starts to shift, mood swings might become more frequent. Ovary function begins to slow and fertility declines. Everyone will experience this process differently but being aware of the biology of what is happening empowers us to support the process with lifestyle and supplementation choices.  



Tailored supplementation can profoundly influence a woman's health and well-being during this phase of life. Formulated to support all the life cycles a woman experiences our Signature and Naked Collections are here for Perimenopause too. 

BrainJoy: fosters cognitive resilience and mental clarity, blending botanicals like Lion's Mane and Ashwagandha which are well known for their ability to balance hormones and support mental well-being. 

DreamEase: for restorative sleep, combines Melatonin's regulation of sleep cycles with Ashwagandha and Magnesium to mitigate stress to ensure a night of deep tranquility.

To nurture the body during this time is to create a sanctuary for change! Engaging in exercise, particularly resistance training, fortifies bone density, and builds strength to ensure your bones and muscles stay strong and healthy through this transition. It also helps to move energy and support fluctuating moods. Stress-reduction techniques become not just tools, but companions in maintaining an inner calm.

Dietary changes that welcome foods high in phytoestrogenslike flax and sesame seeds, shine as natural allies offering sustenance and support in maintaining balance and ease. Together, these practices form a foundation of wellness, that will support your body and mind through these shifts.

Understanding what is happening in our bodies during this transition, empowers us to create a lifestyle that will support and nurture the transition into menopause. It's often a longer and less clearly defined evolution in womanhood, but equally as beautiful and incredibly powerful process of bringing your inner goddess more fully to life!
