Post image for Discount Offer from Relizen for The Perimenopause Blog Readers!


Some of you may remember the giveaway I did with Relizen, a non-hormonal supplement for the treatment of hot flashes and night sweats during perimenopause back in September of 2014. If you don’t (or if you do) you can find that post here.

I thought you ladies might like to know that Relizen is offering special discount for The Perimenopause Blog readers for the next 2 weeks.  If you are interested in trying Relizen you can use a special discount code (found below) for $45 off a monthly membership package called “Relizen Together” or you can receive $15 off a single purchase, 1 month supply.

What is Relizen?

Relizen is a patented natural supplement for the relief of hot flashes associated with menopause. Women use Relizen not just because it’s a natural and non-hormonal therapy, but because it’s endorsed by gynecologists.

Not only that, but Relizen is backed by a number of studies published in leading medical journals. Relizen has been used by over one million women across Europe and is among France’s leading menopause products, and now it’s available in the US!

Relizen is a safe and natural solution to hot flashes—its active ingredient is a Swedish flower pollen extract that has had the pollen allergens removed.

You can learn more about Relizen by checking out their website here: www.Relizen.com and grab the code below for your discount!

Relizen Discount Code: 5001637

Looking for Resources for Perimenopause? Look No Further!

Thumbnail image for Looking for Resources for Perimenopause? Look No Further!

A lot of my readers ask for help in locating physicians, pharmacies, and recommendations for bioidentical progesterone (which I promote a lot here).  I almost always forget to direct them to my  Resources Page.  And unless you take the time to click through on some of my pages, you might not locate it either, though […]

Hot Flashes & Night Sweats in Perimenopause: Try Estroven Nighttime

Thumbnail image for Hot Flashes & Night Sweats in Perimenopause: Try Estroven Nighttime

  This is a reprint of a post I wrote a few years ago when I blogged for the Estroven Sleep Campaign. Estroven is one of the few non-hormonal supplement products that I’ve used for perimenopause symptoms.  I have had good success with it and all of my opinions on the product are honest.  If […]

Food as Medicine: Omega-3s & Zinc For Itchy Skin and Scalp in Perimenopause

Thumbnail image for Food as Medicine: Omega-3s & Zinc For Itchy Skin and Scalp in Perimenopause

This is the first post in a new series I’m entitling “Food as Medicine.”  After several years of reading and writing about perimenopause, I’ve come to the conclusion that food is as important in managing the symptoms of perimenopause, as I believe bioidentical hormones are. In fact, I would likely say that food is even more important. Now, […]

Hormone Replacement Therapy isn’t as Scary as You Think

Thumbnail image for Hormone Replacement Therapy isn’t as Scary as You Think

In 2002, the Women’s Health Initiative study sent the medical professionals prescribing hormone replacement therapy to their patients into a bonafide tail spin. Terrified of putting women at risk for coronary heart disease, stroke or breast cancer, physicians abandoned HRT all together, advising their patients to do the same. Few would argue the value of the study. […]

Natural Remedies for Itchy Scalp in Perimenopause

One of my more popular blogs here has been “Dry, Itchy Skin in Perimenopause.”  Apparently, we’re all itchy and scratchy when hormone imbalance hits. Go figure. For me, the biggest issue has been an itchy scalp. But, truth be told, I’ve always had issues with an itchy scalp.  As long as I can remember.  However, by the […]

DHEA: What is it & Why Should You Care?

If you’re anything like me, prior to perimenopause the only thing you knew about hormones was that you had them, and that about every 28 days or so, you had a deep and passionate longing for a luscious piece of chocolate and a high powered firearm with bulls-eye accuracy. In prior generations there wasn’t much talk about […]

One thing is certain–menopause is not a disease.  It’s a perfectly natural process that affects every woman once they reach a certain age. However, sometimes it can feel like a disease.  This is because menopause is the proverbial last straw; things add up unnoticed for years until menopause comes along and tips the balance over. […]
