      Hi Anne Exercise is good for you in the menopause and it would be a shame to give up something you like doing. Why not try the tips above to see if that makes a difference and maybe just ease back a little until your joints improve.

      Hi Teresa, Devil's Claw is a good choice, and also getting plenty of water into yourself (plain water) and maybe an extra magnesium supplement. Not sleeping makes anyone feel a bit crazy, so you are definitely not alone with that one. Check out a Sage extract such as Menoforce for countering the night sweats and giving you a better chance of sleeping. Best wishes, Eileen

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.
