Au Natural

After months on bitching and moaning about my perimenopausal symptoms – which are killing me – have I mention that lately – anyway…. I’ve finally moved into action mode.

I spent the last week – an entire 7 days! – with an incredible headache. Worse than any I’ve ever had. These are more and more frequent now and even come with dizziness and blurry vision. So enough I say. Time to get my butt in gear and work this %#@* out.

I have an appointment with a naturopathic doctor. She’s given me a 16 page questionnaire to fill out prior to the first appointment. Isn’t that interesting? Why don’t GP’s ask more background questions? Hmm. Sort of annoying huh?

Anyway, I think I’ll start with the naturopathic doc and see where that goes. Then I’ll try my luck with accupuncture along with attempting to get a grip on a better diet. I’m not sure I’m ready to jump into HRT yet, but I won’t rule it out as an option.

Anyone have any luck with natural medicines out there? I’d love to hear what they prescribed to you and if it worked.

Until next time,
Sara
