2.1 What's the Root Problem in Menopause
Hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, vaginal dryness and painful intimacy, irritability and mood swings, depression and anxiety, hopelessness . . .
All of these are horrible symptoms of menopause. They make life completely unbearable at times.
It's Not Your Fault
The symptoms of menopause don't come out of nowhere. There is a reason why you've been experiencing these. It's not because of anything you've done!
There is a root problem underneath every single one of these menopause symptoms.
Once we understand the root problem that's causing these symptoms, we can get a better handle on the best ways to treat those symptoms. Without addressing the root issue, we'll never completely eliminate them.
Here's The Good News
The good news is that treating the root cause is actually a lot simpler (and safer) than you might think. Understanding how hormones work throughout your lifetime and which specific ones go to (essentially) zero at menopause is the first step to understanding the most effective and safest way to deal with all those unbearable symptoms.
