Before you jump into hormone replacement, or get hooked on mood-altering medications during your perimenopausal years, you need to hear out Maria Claps!
Maria is a health coach and functional medicine practitioner who entered full menopause before 50. But before that, she had a rough ride in perimenopause. After not sleeping for three full days, she broke down and saw a holistic medical doctor. Though she got some relief, she didn't get the careful testing and holistic approach she would have liked.
She went on to become an expert on perimenopause, and now sees, primarily, women ages 45-50 who are complaining of fatigue, low libido, weight gain and low mood.
She developed her approach to hormone health, which she calls the 4 pillars. These include liver care, adrenal support, blood sugar balancing, and hormone testing.
We talk especially about a test we both like, called the Dried Urine Test of Comprehensive Hormones. This test can save you a lot of grief!
Listen in, and learn about Maria's approach.
