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.

  • Thanks for the information on calcium supplements! I can never quite remember the medical consensus on that.

    • Thank you Anne. This argues you should get your calcium from your diet combined with vitamin d which helps absorb the calcium. But every body is different and I always believe you should talk to your doctor if you’re unsure. Bone health is so important especially in women in perimenopause and menopause.

  • Hi Ellen, great info! You are just a plethora of uber valuable tidbits that better our lives. Awesome!

    • Thanks Tammy. You better my life every time I see you stopped by to get your advice fill. xo
