Menopause… it’s unavoidable but healthy and normal. Symptoms can include night sweats, hot flashes, thinning hair, weight gain, disrupted sleep, poor memory, anxiety, mood swings, low sex drive and more. Diet plays a HUGE role in a woman’s health and well-being during peri menopause and menopause!!!
Your skin is changing now as you go through the stages of menopause. The shift in hormones can also lead to changes in your skin and nails that are often sadly overlooked. During menopause, you stop producing estrogen and it’s the decline of hormone levels that are responsible for many of the symptoms we women experience.
Estrogen can increase the rate of declining collagen and elastin, which helps keep your skin looking youthful and plump. But, it’s not just a loss in youth boosting proteins that affect most women, it’s the testosterone dominance that can result in breakouts, oily skin, and acne. Adding to that the significant drop in estrogen levels causes a large change in the appearance and function of your skin. We see a rapid loss of structural integrity and ability to repair. Some women may experience a surge of pigmentation and age spots. Problems will vary between individuals, with genetic tendencies, skin type, previous skin treatments and past skin damage all making an impact. I highly recommend a proactive approach to your skincare regiment to combat this. Prevention, protection and repairing what can be repaired with a quality skincare regiment with proven track record. Consistency is the key and most women just don’t take the time for self care that they should. If you can get into the habit of good skin care before menopause, your skin won’t suffer as much when the hormone changes hit.

Testimonials – Arbonne & Menopause Symptoms
Robin; "Yoyo dieter alert! 🤪 That WAS me! I had endometriosis lodged in my spine. 😩 ouch! Then it traveled to my diaphragm and the pain was worse! 🥵I was diagnosed at 30 with osteoarthritis, pelvic congestion syndrome at 34, irritable bowel syndrome at 35, hypoglycemia at 36, pre-menopause symptoms were through the roof! Emotions and hormones were flying all over and then I ended up going to the emergency room with diverticulitis. 🥵🤢I was obese, depressed, and slowly eating my way to an early death. I could hardly get out of bed. My daughter convinced me to try the Arbonne system and business and I'm sooo glad she did! ❤️❤️👏👏 My symptoms are completely gone! 👏😍 So I might still be a little crazy 🤣🤪 but now it's crazy in love with this new life! No more pills! No more crazy lady hormone swings! No more being backed up worse than the 405 freeway in LA! No more crying myself to sleep in pain! No more laying in bed unable to move all day! I'm jogging every morning for the first time since high school! 💪🏃♀️ I'm not done yet but I've made so much progress that I'll never go back. 😍"
Great advice from Jenny Burrell. Are you 35/40+? This is defined chronologically as the Third Age, or peri-menopause. Your body is changing. What you eat and drink now REALLY MATTERS in a way that it never has before. What suited your metabolism in your 20's & 30's most probably just isn't going to work now. Time for a reset. There seems to be 4 big issues in the 3rd Age as far as nutrition is involved for women and they are - SUGAR, EXCESS STARCHY CARBS, EATING PROCESSED/NON-HOME COOKED FOOD and ALCOHOL. Most of our socializing in this life phase involve eating and drinking and if we're not careful to adjust to what our bodies actually NEED as opposed to simply continuing with outdated habits, we might end up with a body, energy and health that's very much not where we want to be. This is definitely me. Foods I used to be able to eat without causing weight gain or bloating I only just have to look at now!! The pounds seems to linger around my belly (not a good look!) Arbonne’s 30 days to healthy living plan resets your body by eliminating the above ‘danger’ foods and helping you to retrain your eating habits.
DeEtte "Back in October of 2015, I accepted a coffee date, with my now Arbonne coach. We talked about the business, but what I was really interested in was the 30 Day Detox. You see, I was 49, and struggling with pre-menopause symptoms, like weight gain, especially around the mid section, emotional issues, fatigue, pain in my joints, and aging skin. 😫 I literally cried at our coffee date. That day, I committed myself to doing the detox 100%! It is an understatement to say that I was a new woman by the end of those 30 days! No more heartburn, hip pain, fatigue, brain fog, and I lost 10 pounds! Everything that was promised, happened! I now use all of the detox products in my daily life. I splurge sometimes, but my body lets me know that I can't do that all the time. Every time I hear from somebody that they have an autoimmune disorder, or migraines, adrenal fatigue, IBS, insert your issue here_________, I want to scream, "Try the 30 day Clean Eating Challenge/Cleanse with Arbonne"! But, I don't scream 😂, I just ask and encourage. My life is forever changed by the Arbonne nutritional products, and I am so grateful!"
Testimonial from a client using Mind Health supplement. I am so, so happy she is feeling better and this has worked for her. She felt like nothing was working beforehand. "I have been taking the mind health for over a month. The difference it has made has been amazing, before I was advised on trying it. I was very menopausal very tired, headaches and very low in myself. The difference in taking mind health is that I've had no headaches, a lot more energy and a lot more happier in myself. I stopped taking it for a short time and all my symptoms have come back, so I know that the mind health has made a huge difference I would recommend it to anyone who is going through the menopause" x M.R
Aviva After 5 months of dedication to my health, here are the results. Minus 43.7 lbs. My shirt is now a dress! After one heart attack 4.5 years ago, cholesterol medication, no energy, in pain, peri menopausal ( can’t lose an once at my age so I thought) I finally woke up. I can’t thank Maria enough for introducing me to the best program for wellness globally. I no longer take Lipitor (with my doctor’s permission), when I couldn’t walk 7 minutes without pain, I now walk 2 miles a day. I work full time as a school nurse and run a successful home based business. My goal is to now coach women and men alike (young and older) to do the same. It only took 30 days to change my mindset. You can do it too. I want to thank my family at home for going with the flow.
I want to share my passion for Arbonne Products and how the Clean Eating Challenge has completely changed my life. Donna These are just a few of my wins/successes after my first CEC. (Clean Eating Challenge - aka #Arbonne30) * No more blood pressure meds * Better sleep * Increased energy * Decrease in menopausal systems * Significant weight loss * 7 inches gone * Increased lean muscle mass * Clear, Vibrant, Healthy Skin You can see how unhappy I look about taking my before photo. I had not been treating my body right and I definitely wasn’t putting foods that serve my body in it. In my after photo I’m happy, strong and lean.
I am 50 y.o. menopausal. I didn't think I could possibly lose my gut. On 02 September I took the photo on the left. The following day I started the 30 days to healthy living for the first time. The photo on the right I took 5 of October. I 💚 Arbonne forever 😘

Menopause is linked to changes in metabolism, reduced bone density and increased risk of heart disease. Additionally, many women going through menopause experience unpleasant symptoms, such as hot flashes and poor sleep. A nutrient rich nutrition plan high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains (gluten-free if you are gluten sensitive), and high-quality protein, along with a good multi-vitamin may reduce menopause symptoms. Phytoestrogens and healthy fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids from fish, may also help. Or, omega-3 can be obtained as a supplement. Vegetarians and vegans can get their daily dosage of Omega-3’s from; seaweed, algae, chia; flax and hemp seeds, walnuts, kidney beans, and algae oil
These simple changes to your diet may make this important transition in your life easier.
