I created this menopause blog to help other women find natural remedies for menopause symptoms.

I am a member of The Magnesium Advocacy Group on Facebook, and I founded its sister group called Menopause Maggie. I gather health information from these groups as well as other leading health authority sites pertaining to natural health and wellness.

I sprinkle great information throughout my articles from helpful Naturopathic information. I also consult expert advice as well as forward my own personal experience. I write about other ‘real people’ who have tried the numerous remedies mentioned here and give you the best of the best.

Now a little about myself.

Menopause caught me off guard at the age of 47. I considered that too young to go through the change, and I wasn’t happy about it. My friends were way behind me.

After seeing my gynecologist, and having him confirm I was post menopause, he told me to enjoy my new life. He told me the best thing I could do for myself was to find natural ways to relieve the symptoms instead of taking prescription medicines.

I thought that was odd for a doctor to say because usually they endorse traditional medicines like hormone replacement therapy. But I thought about it, and he was right. I didn’t want to pollute my body with chemicals.

I had gained 50 pounds in a short time, and was miserable with all my menopause symptoms. I wanted to be happy and youthful again. I decided to take my doctor’s advice and embrace menopause and this ‘new life’ I was told to enjoy.

I began a quest for natural remedies, using myself as a guinea pig. I found things that worked, and things that didn’t. I started a Facebook group that quickly filled with like-minded women who were also passionate about treating menopause naturally. Here is the link if you are interested in joining Menopause Maggie. 

I decided I needed something bigger than a group to help women treat menopause naturally, so I started my blog, Crunchy Menopause, and decided to fill it with great products and information. I’m really passionate about helping other women who are suffering through this transition.

If I can help even one person feel better, It will be worth it. I don’t want anyone to suffer the way I did. My philosophy is to embrace my new life. Menopause is challenging, but with natural products, remedies, and ideas, you can feel better, look great, and reclaim your youth.

I lost 50 pounds and feel and look better than I have in a long time just by following non-traditional natural methods for my body, mind, and spirit.

Though I’m not a doctor, and I don’t claim to have any health training, I do provide articles of things that have worked for me and other like-minded ‘Crunchy’ people, as well as forward information from professionals and leaders in the health and wellness industry.

I recommend seeking the advice of a doctor before starting any natural treatments, and hope that you will do your own research whenever considering any natural product, method, or remedy.
