Dr Louise was working as a GP when she began to suspect that many patients with menopausal symptoms were being misdiagnosed by other healthcare professionals, or ignored. That led her to train as a menopause specialist and, in time, to become the UK’s most informed and passionate advocate for helping women find the help they need.After her specialist training in the menopause, Dr Louise discovered she could change the lives of many menopausal women even in one short GP consultation. She found that simply prescribing the right dose of HRT could be transformative for patients. But she also understood how crucial it was to give advice about lifestyle changes too – including exercise, diet and sleep.

Heard about it from a colleague by chance, after expressing frustration at minimal courses for nurses, maybe more accessible to everyone 🙂 We have needed a book like this for so long, and it's time to break down those menopause barriers and not be afraid to talk about it!The book contains exclusive new medical research and answers the questions women most often ask Louise in her clinic.

Menopause isn’t simply about hot flushes. Symptoms can include memory loss, migraines, joint pain, insomnia, fuzzy brain and depression – all brought on by a severe reduction in hormone levels. Those hormone levels never recover. Women who think – as many do – that they should put up with their menopausal symptoms until they ‘get to the other side’ are sadly misguided. There are also increased risks of long-term health problems for menopausal women – including diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis. So menopausal women shouldn’t suffer silently. They should look for help.
