    Hi Eileen, I am on day five of the seven day plan and it has been a revelation. I have had hip and elbow pain for 18 months and was told quite emphatically by my G.P. That this was nothing to do with the menopause (I am 50)... I also have an irritated bladder and low level anxiety. This is the first time I have heard others describe exactly my symptoms and the reassurance is wonderful. I am now taking your Menopause support along with magnesium and turmeric, can I take Devil’s Claw as well ? I have tripled my water intake and already feeling so much better. Does the menopause also cause dizziness and wobbly balance ? Thank you for this resource, it is such a support on so many levels.

      Hi Nicky It's great to hear that you are feeling the benefits of the plan, thank you! Yes, dizziness is really common, I have posted a video blog on this so please do take a look. Loss of balance is not so common but can happen, although it may be an idea to get a check with your doctor just in case it is not related. https://www.avogel.co.uk/health/menopause/videos/eileen-answers-your-questions-on-headaches-and-dizziness/

      Thanks Eileen, really helpful. We really should have a menopause clinic at every NHS medical centre as there are so many issues here !

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
