Perimenopause and menopause... with Regina Lasaitis
Play • 23 min

In this episode, we discuss the challenges women experience during the menopausal transition, including the physical and mental symptoms which can be overwhelming, debilitating, and significantly impact the quality of life. We explore the stigma of menopause and why it is often viewed as a negative experience.

This podcast offers clinical insights for supporting women experiencing hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause, including herbal therapeutics for hot flashes, mood, sleep, cognition, and menstrual irregularities. We discuss the importance of adrenal health during this transition and herbs that are supportive of the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian (HPO) axis.  We discuss diet and lifestyle interventions that can support a smoother transition and the importance of tailoring our clinical approach to the individual.

Many women struggle during this transition and experience a sense of loss. In this podcast, Regina reframes the common negative perception of menopause and discusses how we as complementary medicine and allied healthcare professionals can empower women to embrace this change as a positive and powerful process.
