I was 45 when I started getting perimenopausal symptoms. This was a real shock as throughout my life I was lucky and never suffered with anything when It came down to my menstrual cycle - it was like it happened over night. My periods became incredibly heavy and the pain I would get was off the scale. So much so that I would have to take myself back to bed, lay in the fetal position, with a hot water bottle whilst taking a couple of ibuprofen. None of which really helped me and it was certainly affecting my life.
In the meantime I carried on with life thinking this is the way it's going to be from now on until menopause. One evening I noticed my friend was talking about Doctor Seaweed and how much she loved the supplements. So I thought why not give it a go. I started taking Doctor Seaweed’s Pure Seaweed Capsules continuously and it just so happened that I started taking it just after my period had finished. As always, I was then dreading my next period due to the amount of pain I knew I was going to get. The dreaded day came and to my surprise, I had no pain whatsoever and my period was lighter than normal! I started thinking about what I had done differently that month and what things I had changed in my diet. It then of course dawned on me that I had started taking Pure Seaweed every day. I contacted Doctor Seaweed to ask if it was possible that taking Pure Seaweed could stop the pain and I was reassured that this was possible. Iodine deficiency can lead to irregular menstrual cycles alongside stomach cramps. So for me this was a total game changer for my perimenopausal life. Thank you Doctor Seaweed for developing this fabulous natural and plant-based supplement, what a find!
