Estroven: I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends!

September is Menopause Awareness Month.
I remember all too well…menopause is a lonely, frightening time.  There is no one else in the family who truly understands the physical changes mom is experiencing.
Whether it is night sweats, hot flashes, irritability, vertigo, crankiness, unexpected weight gain, fatigue…or all of the above… absolutely no one in the same house can identify with the feelings.  (That is, of course, unless you are living with a female parent!)
Lying in my bed, there were times I longed for understanding.  Isolation combined with misunderstood physical problems will also occasionally bring on despondency.  This is when we need our girlfriends…to support, console and see us through.  Pick up the phone and call someone.  These conversations are incredibly important during this time.
Also, important is to understand all of the support a product line like http://www.estroven.com/gives women. The only line which offers a complete coverage of products that will “safely and effectively provide multi-symptom menopause relief, so you can feel like you again.” (Estroven)  All of these products contain naturally-sourced ingredients that go beyond reducing hot flashes and night sweats to relieve the most bothersome symptoms…and we all know just how bothersome those symptoms can be.
Their product line is for both functional and emotional relief.  They tell me one out of three women in the United States suffers from peri-menopause and menopause symptoms, however, nearly 60% of these women do not seek treatment because they are unaware of the solutions available to them.  I was amazed at all of the different types of Estroven and wished these had been available for me to try.
NEW Weight Management:  provides multi-symptom menopause relief, plus helps manage weight.
Maximum Strength: reduces hot flashes and night sweats, plus helps manage irritability
Nighttime:  reduces hot flashes and night sweats plus occasional sleeplessness
Energy: reduces hot flashes and night sweats, plus helps manage fatigue
Mood & Memory: reduces hot flashes and night sweats, plus improves mood and memory
Estroven has three experts available to answer any questions you may have.  You might take a few minutes to read over their credentials below.  Then know that you can find Estroven at most grocery and drug store retailers.
Also, Estroven has a panel of specialists who are ready to speak and counsel women through the process.  Experts like:

  1. I developed peri-menopause symptoms in my mid-forties. Estroven is the best. This product made all the difference in the world. My medical history precluded the use of hormone therapy, but Estroven is natural, so I could use it without worry.

  2. I would be very careful and only go on Estroven if a doctor advised it. I tried it, after I had gone thru
    menopause(over a year with no period) and I had bleeding. That is never a good sign when you are considered past menopause. Went to the doctor had a pap it came back abnormal, a result I had never had before. My cervical lining had thicken to a "6"..."7" is cancer. Scared, I went off Estroven, had another pap 3 months later and it was back to normal.. I mentioned to my doctor what I had done and he said that in all likelihood it was the Estroven that had caused the breakthrough bleeding, the thickening and the abnormal pap. Just because it is natural doesn't mean its the right choice.
