Here’s a look at the latest and greatest in Shmirshky Land!

I dropped in to CBS LA to talk about women in perimenopause and menopause and children in puberty living under the same roof. It’s dueling hormones people! Click through here for the video clip:

My son, Jack, joined me at the UCSD student wellness center, The Zone, for a, “How to Meet Your Mother” talk (pictured above). We had a great group of students who were engaged and learned a whole heck of a lot about interacting with the menopausal women in your life. I’m so impressed with these students. They were great! Check out The Zone blog about it here:

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
