Perimenopause Symptoms

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!

I receive more free products than you can imagine.  I am contacted nearly every […]

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 […]

Estrogen, Uterine Polyps & Me

I’ve been fully menopausal for nearly 4 years now.  I’ve shared with you all in that past, that during my own perimenopause years – those years prior to my becoming menopausal –  I did not use any kind of hormones.  Looking back, frankly, it is a decision I regret. I’ve learned a lot since then about bioidentical […]

Let’s talk about hot flashes and night sweats, ladies.  You know you have em!  We all do!  Okay, well, I don’t have them so much anymore. But, I used to.  So don’t hate me. And while I wouldn’t call hot flashes and night sweats the worst symptoms of perimenopause, there is no doubt, they are bothersome. Thankfully, the only time I […]

Hormone Imbalance? Oh, Honey, You’re Just Crazy!

I ran across an article last year at the online publication The UK Daily Mail entitled, “Women with extreme PMS will now be deemed ‘mentally ill’ following controversial revision of health manual.” The health manual cited in the article is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, used by the American Psychiatric Association. The “extreme PMS” […]

  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, […]

The Ubiquity of Women’s Health Information: What’s the Truth?

Thumbnail image for The Ubiquity of Women’s Health Information: What’s the Truth?

It’s impossible to blog on this topic as long as I have and not evolve in your thinking, reconsider your opinions, or just flat out change your point of view on something When I first started going through perimenopause in the late 1990s, the Women’s Health Initiative study had not yet been released.  However, by […]

So Exactly “WHAT” are Bioidentical Hormones?

Thumbnail image for So Exactly “WHAT” are Bioidentical Hormones?

I’m going to come clean and tell you that until the last couple of years, I really didn’t understand the difference between bioidentical hormones and what we call synthetic hormones. I also didn’t know that bioidentical hormones have actually been around for a very long time – like, nearly 100 years. Surprised?  I was too. […]

Prometrium: An Oral FDA Approved Bioidentical Progesterone

Thumbnail image for Prometrium: An Oral FDA Approved Bioidentical Progesterone

It is no secret that I personally prefer bioidentical hormones for the treatment of symptoms of perimenopause as opposed to synthetic hormones and drugs. In fact, I sincerely believe that most women prefer natural, healthier, and less intrusive treatments as well. However, most bioidentical hormones are not FDA approved, and therefore, are not covered by most health insurance plans. Unfortunately, this […]

If you are confused about the difference between synthetic hormones and bioidentical hormones, you are certainly not alone. The difference between the two is a hotly contested issue among medical professionals, and unfortunately, it is women suffering with hormone imbalance who are always caught in the middle. Some physicians will tell you flatly bioidentical hormones […]
