Today we are talking about one of the most insidious health issues, which are the unseen dangers women face during perimenopause and menopause. There is an immense lack of education for women regarding some of the most important changes they will inevitably experience, and those gaps need to be filled in to empower women on their journey to optimal health during the aging process.

Despite the immense size of the menopause and perimenopause cohort, adequate resources are lacking. In our society, it’s something we rarely ever discuss in any meaningful way. This leaves women to navigate this life stage alone. Creating a sense of community and providing helpful information is the first step in shifting the paradigm around how we treat this part of our lives.
