I know trained, experienced menopause specialists all over the US, Canada, and the UK. Request a referral and I'll look for one near you.
A recent, 9-page cover story by Susan Dominus in The New York Times Magazine brought long-overdue attention to a medical tragedy.
Dr. Peter Attia calls it, "Hands down the biggest screw-up in the medical field in the last 25 years."
For over 20 years, women in menopause have been told . . .
In the mean time, women in menopause have literally been dying because they've been denied hormones.
And you've been suffering.
Maybe you've had the classic menopause symptoms:
Could be that your symptoms don't fit with your expectations of menopause:
Or maybe you're just not feeling like yourself . . .
[withholding hormones from menopausal women]
"Hands down the biggest screw-up in the medical field in the last 25 years."
Dr. Peter Attia: Exercise, Nutrition, Hormones for Vitality & Longevity Huberman Lab Podcast #85
You don't need me to remind you how awful menopause can be. If you're looking at this page, you know that "the change of life" can change your life into a living Hell.
It's absolutely no exaggeration to say menopause affects . . .
Every. Single. Aspect.
. . . of your entire life:
Your body . . .
"So now, I feel like I have aged fifty years. I have severe problems with night sweats, hot flashes, insomnia, extreme fatigue, headaches, constant and continuous pain throughout my body, ibs symptoms, dryness, brain fog, etc. I am miserable!" Shawn
Your body temperature . . .
"There are no words to describe my night sweats. (I imagine HELL being similar.) Most nights I have them every hour of the night, starting at 12 am and lasting until 7 am." Ela
Your weight . . .
"I have trouble losing weight and I exercise 4-5 times a week. My weight is mainly in my stomach." Kristi
Your brain . . .
"Brain fog . . . I mean major, forgetting your children's names. Can't remember people you've met before and had long conversations with." AMPA
Your mental health . . .
"Why do I have such terrible anxiety. I feel like I'm shaking inside at times. What can I do naturally to stop the anxiety, I take b vitamins, take Epsom salt baths and meditate. It's the worse part of my menopause. Sometime I can't even drive, a fear comes over me and I stay home to avoid a panick attach." Susanne
Your sleep . . .
"Can't sleep more than 2 to 3 hours a night." Sunshine
Your sex life . . .
"I'm 45 years old. I don't have hot flashes but before I hit 40, I already started having vaginal dryness and lately I lost desire to have sex. But I want to do that bcs I want to have a normal sex life with my husband. So I use lubricant but even using it I have this stinging pain with penetration. So all that make me think it can be my hormones." Priscilla
Your relationship . . .
"This is supposed to be the best time of my life and I feel like I'm going crazy. Not to mention that sex hurts and it's putting a strain on my relationship. Joy!" D
You know the problem better than I do . . .
What's the solution?
So many women I've talked with have tried to treat their menopause symptoms with very little success.
"Changed my diet, tried different vitamins . . ." Gina
"I cannot lose weight. I count carbs, have tried many resources . . ." T
"I've tried everything but nothing has helped me . . ." Cathy
"I have tried some Estroven® but it was not potent enough . . ." Anonymous
"Tried WW, Atkins, nutritionist, personal trainer, boot camp, Nutrisystem, all organic, clean, paleo nothing works . . ." CJ
"I have tried everything over the counter. With no relief . . ." Carrie
"Tried many over the counter drugs. They seem to work for a short while and then no longer . . ." Celene
"I try natural remedies, healthier eating, also any and all things I hear can help . . ." Teresa
"Weight loss is impossible. I have tried it all. Low fat, high fat, protein, no carb, etc. nothing works . . ." Debbie
"My family doctor and my endocrinologist advised me to try everything natural but not HRT or BHRT. So I did. I did try everything and spent thousands on various supplements, therapies like reiki, homeopathy, Bowen, acupuncture, naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine. Keto worked but gave me kidney stones. Running and exercising INCREASED the night sweats!!! I gave up alcohol completely in 2018, also sugar. I eat organic and healthy, Some supplements worked for a while. All that worked took about 3 weeks to start working and worked for 2 or 3 months. My Dr prescribed [an SSRI] for the night sweats . . . I had to stop." Ela
Menopause isn't about hot flashes, night sweats, or weight gain . . .
It's not about vaginal dryness or painful intimacy . . .
It's not about suicidal depression or paralyzing anxiety . . .
It's not about joint pain or brain fog or insomnia . . .
As bad as all those symptoms (and dozens more) can be . . .
It doesn't matter if you try or even succeed in treating any one particular menopause symptom. The root problem in menopause is about hormones.
Unless you deal with the root problem, you'll never be free from either the symptoms of menopause or the long-term risks hormone deficiency opens you up to.
The Menopause Solution is about dealing with that root problem - the loss of your hormones.
Clearly! I don't have firsthand knowledge of menopause or any of the symptoms you struggle with.
What I DO HAVE is . . .
That's a great question!
I'm not a physician. But I am a licensed, trained pharmacist with decades of experience and multiple certifications that qualify me to teach patients about hormones.
I also have relationships with hundreds of physicians, nurse practitioners, and PAs all over the US, Canada, the UK!
In fact, I've been offering my Simple Hormones patient education subscription to healthcare practitioners for the past 5 years. Providers pay me a yearly subscription fee and pass along my courses - including one I call Simple Hormones for Menopause - to their patients.
More than 2086* patients have enrolled in Simple Hormones through their hormone practitioners including . . .

You'll be among the first to have direct patient access to a full course. But patients have watched my hormone videos for years on my YouTube channel. (By the way, my channel has over 6000 subscribers and is about to go over 300,000 views.)
Stephanie says, "This is video number 2 of yours that brought me to tears. Your understanding and acknowledgement of how hormonal imbalance and/or mental decline has changed us and our lives means so much. It builds trust and confidence. Thank you."
PK commented "THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Where were you 12 years ago? (smile) I was one of those people who thought HRT is BAD BAD BAD - I fought it - for 7 years."
Sara says, "So far the best explanation from someone qualified, far more simple and easy to digest than all of the other MD/menopause 'experts' videos I’ve watched . . . thanks for enlightening us!"
To help you make your HRT decision, I've created "The Menopause Solution," a digital course with simple, bite-sized videos that walk you through menopause and hormones, step-by-step.
The Menopause Solution helps clear up confusion . . .
The Menopause Solution is structured in a loose framework with 3 pillars . . .
The Menopause Solution walks you through menopause and hormone replacement therapy in 4 simple steps.
Thyroid affects every system in your body. Even if your thyroid levels are "normal," they may not be enough to keep your body functioning optimally. Thyroid issues start showing up in your late 40s or early 50s, right along with with menopause.
THYROID: It's That Simple explains how thyroid affects . . .
A hormone optimization specialist can help you get "optimal" thyroid levels - not the same as "normal." This course helps you understand the nuances around low thyroid and why you may not be feeling great, even though you're already taking a thyroid hormone! Get started on optimizing all your hormones.
For a limited time, THYROID: It's That Simple is an added bonus course when you purchase The Menopause Solution.
"I wished that someone knew how to help me. I needed a coach to teach me about menopause HRT and that it was not just about treating the hot flashes and that I wasn't being a hero for my health by avoiding HRT." Kara
I get lots of coaching requests, like this one from Kara.
I normally don't take on coaching clients. But for a limited time, I'm willing to schedule a 30-minute hormone coaching call with anyone who enrolls in this course.
Ask me anything. Share whatever you'd like me to know about your hormones and your menopause. I can make recommendations about treatment, questions to ask your provider, or seeing a hormone specialist.
Several women I have coached have appreciated the time and thanked me for it.
Note: I'm not a physician and I cannot prescribe hormones or any other prescription drugs for you. I'm only providing my expertise as a pharmacist and coach, helping to guide you toward your next steps.
If you're in menopause and you're feeling . . .
Then The Menopause Solution is for YOU!
Trade your confusion for confidence and your frustration for peace of mind, knowing you're on the path to long-term health and freedom from menopause symptoms.

The Menopause Solution is a digital course with easy-to-view videos that explain the basics of getting your hormones "optimized." Optimal hormones are "not too high, not too low, but just right." Because The Menopause Solution uses non-medical language (no jargon), you don't need any medical or science background to understand it. You can view the videos on any device at any time. After going through the video lessons, you'll be able to make an informed decision about whether hormone optimization is right for you.
Sure! There are lots of "natural" menopause remedies, which usually implies "non-hormonal." You can take black cohosh, red clover, chaste tree, B vitamins, fish oil. You can try yoga and HIIT training and meditation. You can make changes to your diet and cut out red wine or chocolate or spicy foods. Those might help . . . a little . . . with hot flashes? I actually have a whole video answering this question in the course. Spoiler Alert: You CAN take natural remedies, but unless you deal with the Root Problem, you'll never be free of all the symptoms of menopause.
Unfortunately, that's extremely common. It's also extremely WRONG! You'll want to take the course and watch all the videos in "Module 4 - Risks - What could go wrong?" to understand where the idea comes from that hormones are dangerous or that they cause breast cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots. It's simply not true. Take the course!
Yes. You can view the material on any device at any time. The program is designed to work with any smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
Unfortunately, NO. I'm licensed as a pharmacist in 3 US states (Utah, Colorado, and Oregon). None of those states allow pharmacists to prescribe hormones for patients. What I can do though is look for a hormone optimization specialist - a physician, nurse practitioner, or PA in your area who can help you with menopause. I can't guarantee I have contacts near you, but I do know several hundred across the US, Canada, the UK, and a few other countries.
Great question! The short answer is . . . maybe? The reality is that insurance companies exist not for your health and well-being but for the profit of their shareholders. Realistically, getting your hormones optimized is likely to have a financial cost. Unfortunately, that's the way it is in the US. In countries with different healthcare systems (UK, Canada, Sweden), the amount you'd pay would be different than in the US, probably lower.
You'll get access to the videos immediately after you enroll. The Menopause Solution is self-paced - you decide when you start and when you finish. You can watch the videos as many times as you like.
If you have any issues getting into the program, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to get it sorted out for you as soon as possible.
I offer a 90-day, 100% money back guarantee. I never want to disappoint anyone with my courses. If you're not 100% thrilled with your purchase, just send me an email and I'll refund 100% of your purchase price. You can get a refund at any time in the first 90 days. All I ask is that you seriously go through the course before making the decision it's not for you.

The Hormone Pharmacist
As you can tell by my photo - I'm a man! What business does a man have, talking to women about menopause? As a compounding pharmacist, I've been helping women with hormones and menopause for over 25 years. I've heard dozens of horror stories from women who've been told, "You'll just have to get used to it . . ." from their own doctors. I've dived deep into the medical literature and earned 2 certifications in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) so I can help women just like you figure out what's really going on. I can help you understand what the studies say . . . and don't say about hormones, their risks, their benefits. I'm here to help you make a truly informed decision. Is hormone replacement therapy (HRT) the right treatment for your menopause symptoms . . . or not?
