Perimenopause can be a really difficult time with many women experiencing ridiculous levels of irritability Andy for some even rage for no rational reason. I thought I was starting to lose my mind.🙄

I’m 55 but I haven’t experienced normal menopause as I’m on bHrt. I recommend it for those that don’t have contraindications and are able to afford it.

One issue I do have is thinning hair and that is very troubling to me. I’m taking the usual supplements but it’s still a big issue😔

Can you specify what you mean by "drastically cleaned up"?

All my life, I ate a high carb, junky diet. It was loaded with sugar and other inflammation causing foods. I got to the point where I had to do something, especially since I knew I was intolerant to some of what I was eating. Also a couple of the children had a couple of intolerances, so we cleaned up the whole family's diet. We started eating a lot more veggies, fruit, and meat. We laid off most dairy and gluten foods. We didn't buy much for processed foods or junk foods, just ate too much baking and stuff like that. We also started including healthy fat. For myself, I still try not to eat many high carb foods, but I cook healthy ones for the family.
