Hi, I’m Allison!
As a career-driven woman in your 40’s and 50’s you might be wondering “WTF is going on with me?!” You’re foggy, moody, and weepy, your waistline is expanding and you’re completely overwhelmed with trying to balance your home and work life.
You might worry that this is the “new normal” and that the changes that come with this phase, perimenopause, are something to fix or fight…but you simply lack the energy and motivation to do something about it.
I get it, because I’ve been there too!
Not too long ago, I was growing my pelvic health practice, raising my son, and supporting my husband’s career. I was working nonstop, and when I wasn’t working, all I had the bandwidth for was watching Netflix with a glass of wine…preferably not talking to anyone.
Then I began to experience intense night sweats, I was irritable and had raging PMS not once a month…but twice!
This was so confusing because I was
- Eating well Meditating
- Taking a cocktail of supplements
- Dragging myself out of bed to exercise
- Going to acupuncture every week
I was doing all the things I knew to do…yet I was feeling worse.
When I finally went to my doctor, all she could tell me was, “It’s perimenopause- welcome to the club!”
That was it.
