How are you managing menopause?

If you aren't managing menopause, there is help.

Many women think menopause starts when they are 50, whereas actually perimenopause symptoms can start at least 10 years earlier.

Hi, I am Glenda de Vries, a published author, former RN, wife, mother of two young girls, daughter, Christian and lover of life and health.

In a 1998 Gallup survey on women's health sponsored by the North American Menopause Society the majority of women surveyed reported being happiest and most fulfilled between the ages of 50 and 65! They reported their home life, sense of personal fulfillment, ability to focus on hobbies or other interests, relationships with spouse/partner, and friendships had all improved.

If this isn't the case for you, there is help for managing menopause.

I hope this site leaves you feeling more in control of your symptoms, and that you feel encouraged and enthusiastic about the better half of your life so you can be energetic, healthy and productive.
