Vanessa Ford is here to discuss Perimenopause - Taking Back Control of YOU. How much do we really know and understand about perimenopause? Wouldn’t it be great to know more before it starts so we can efficiently talk to our doctor about our options? Vanessa has done the research to explain what’s going on in our bodies and how it impacts our lives, as well as the triggers that bring on the symptoms.


Vanessa Ford is an author, menopause/perimenopause expert, and cofounder of Menolabs, which focuses on women’s issues during the perimenopausal/menopausal transition. Vanessa was prompted to action when, at 44, she began her own transition into menopause. Unsatisfied with the lack of support that women experience during this stage of life, and finding the stereotypes of women in mid-life exasperating and insulting, she created MenoLabs to address what she sees as a glaring need in every woman’s life. Vanessa’s app is called MenoLife and can be found on the app store and her website at She can also be found on Facebook at @menolabs and on Instagram at @vanessa.menolabs. She is providing a free e-book especially for our listeners called How to Master Menopause: Practical Guidance for Dealing with Hot Flashes, Weight Gain, Insomnia, Mood Swings, and Other Menopause Symptoms (written by Vanessa and cofounder, Danielle Jacobs), which can be found here:
