If you are experiencing new hormonal symptoms as you age, check out this episode.  

Our guest Andrea Thorpe, of Lotus Center of Integrative Medicine in Los Angeles, is an acupuncturist, a functional medicine practitioner, and PhD candidate in Chinese Medicine.  She specializes in treating women's health and infertility in her practice, and is often treating women who are 35 and up and stuggling with their hormones.

You don't have to be in menopause to have symptoms.  Symptoms like:

  • Irregular cycles
  • Brain fog
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain

can arrive as young as 35, when perimenopause actually begins.

Andrea explains how the body systems are effected by changing hormones levels, and how pre-existing imbalances can send you into a hormonal tailspin.  

Andrea is also a food enthusiast, making sauerkraut, cooking and gardening.  Learn her tips for nutritional choices that can ease symptoms in this life period, including high fats and minerals.
