While the signs of perimenopause can be challenging, there are various ways to manage  symptoms. It is advisable to speak to a healthcare professional for guidance on managing perimenopause, which may include lifestyle changes, hormone therapy, or natural remedies.

One such natural remedy is the Nature's Help Menopause Collection. It is an evidence-based range of supplements that can provide relief for symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and sleep disturbances.

Each woman's experience with perimenopause is unique, and finding the right management strategy may take time and experimentation.
