This subject is close to my heart because fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks at forty- nine, and it wasn’t because I was over training, stressed, or overworked. Lucky for me, I was prepared when it happened, and I knew what to do.
My body was telling me that something wasn’t right, so it was time to make an appointment with “super doc”. That’s what I call my integrative medicine doctor who helps keep my fluctuating peri-menopausal hormones in balance.
After the doctor reviewed the results of my hormone blood test, he made a few minor adjustments to my bio-identical hormone dosage, within a week balance was restored, and my energy levels quickly returned; I was once again ready to take on life’s daily challenges.

Are you a woman that is usually quite energetic, but now you are constantly tired? Do your usual activities exhaust you? If all of a sudden you wake up and don’t want to get out of bed, or you lay there with a cloudy feeling in your head, what you could be experiencing is a peri-menopausal fatigue cloud, just like I did, and if it continues it can be quite depressing.
Eventually the symptoms of peri-menopause will happen to us all; it’s part of a woman’s inescapable aging process. Your endocrine gland cannot maintain the perfect production of hormones like it did before the age of thirty-five. And with hormonal decline comes nasty peri-menopause symptoms, which affect every woman differently; in my case, it was loss of energy. Peri-menopausal hormonal loss can be a mixed bag of negative symptoms and behaviors that can ultimately ruin relationships and significantly affect your life. It’s best to nip the symptoms in the bud, before they get a chance to rear their ugly heads.
What I find hard to believe is that some women still push peri menopause or other symptom’s aside, and accept that it’s all part of getting older. You don’t have to be a martyr, and choose to do nothing; don’t let your health and your lifestyle deteriorate as the years pass by. Don’t rely on pharmaceutical drugs to make you feel better, the people behind that industry don’t have your best interests at heart, and it’s not a healthy or long-term solution.
What woman wants to live a life zapped of their energy and just not being herself? Not I, and hopefully, not you. Having a lack of energy reduces your quality of life, and those around you suffer too, because they are not receiving the best of you. That’s why having a fully comprehensive hormone blood test is important, as the results let you and your doctor know what’s wrong, and what steps to take to find a solution, together.
Learn to listen to the signs that your clever body tells you, then take action and feel good again. As you have read, it’s not difficult, now it’s your turn.
