Perimenopause Diet

Perimenopause is the time leading up to menopause. Think of it as the transition phase when our body starts to have certain symptoms such as irregular periods, joint pain, mood swings, hot flashes and altered sleep patterns, to name a few. It can start around 40 years of age and last anywhere from 5 to 15 years. Dr. Joan Borysenko refers to this phase as the “midlife metamorphosis”, however it is up to us and our choices how well we come out of it.
