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.

  • Fascinating about Vitamin D. I keep reading more and more about the benefits of it. Also, I nearly stopped having hot flashes after I lost about 30 pounds. I didn’t realize the weight loss was a factor.

    • Thank you Elizabeth. I’m glad it was helpful. Congrats on the weight loss nonetheless that’s great!

  • I’m on prescribed megadoses of vitamin D right now, so it’s good to hear I’m possibly preventing other problems with this treatment.
