OW Staff Writer | 9/10/2020, midnight

Many women ages 40 to 55 are taken by surprise by perimenopause and menopause. One day they’re feeling fine; the next day they’re experiencing night sweats, hot flashes, brain fog, belly fat, mood swings, insomnia, low libido, and other perplexing symptoms.

Denise Pines, president of the Medical Board of California, and Founder of WisePause Lifestyle, is commemorating National Menopause Awareness Month by giving women answers to questions that are rarely discussed in public during the WisePause Lifestyle Virtual Global Experience on Saturday, Sept. 12 at 8 a.m. Registrations are free for the first 24 hours. Registrants can also obtain a 7-day access to the broadcast for $20, or until Dec. 31st for $49.

More than 20 diverse experts will offer their wellness advice on topics that range from hormonal imbalances and treatment therapies to exercise, to how to talk to you doctor about your menopause experience, CBD treatments, botox, microcurrent and anti-aging therapies to nutraceuticals.

Some menopause facts:

• 6,000 women in the U.S. reach menopause daily (2.2M annually)

• 80% of women will experience hot flashes or night sweats

• Less than 7 percent will receive treatment for menopause symptoms

• Postmenopausal women in the world will reach 1.1 billion by 2025

“Our grandmothers and mothers never talked about menopause and this has resulted in half-truths, all-out myths, unnecessary anxiety, and generations of women who have been unprepared for this inevitable and manageable transition in a normal life cycle,” says Pines. “Women need answers, particularly during this time when fears are amplified due to the world-wide pandemic as revealed in a report, FemAing in the COVID-19 Era.” (www.femaging).

The WisePause Lifestyle Virtual Global Experience will be a full-day designed to demystify the perimenopause and menopause experience.
