I was going through the menopause but didn't realise the massive impact this was having on my mental and physical health. For several years I'd had 'brain fog' which was getting worse - I couldn't process simple information and my memory was so poor that I was struggling every day at work which was causing more anxiety and stress. I was extremely tearful and lacking in energy.
My sleep was very poor, I had pains in my legs and joints particularly at night and was waking early every day unable to get back to sleep. I was also having hot flushes and some night sweats.
Within two weeks of taking Melinda's herbal medicine I started to feel better. Four months later, I nolonger have any of the physical symptoms, the hot flushes have stopped as have the pains. I am sleeping so much better. I have noticed my memory is starting to improve and amazingly the 'brain fog' has completely gone which for me is life changing. To be able to think clearly every day is just brilliant. I am no longer feeling anxious or tearful, I feel much stronger mentally and more able to deal with the stresses of everyday life.
I am so relieved I didn't have to resort to using HRT and having to take medication that I really didn't want to take just to be able to function each day. I am also eating more healthily after advice from Melinda about making some small changes to my diet to help balance my hormones.
Melinda was the first person who actually listened to me properly, just talking to her helped me feel better. I have recommended her to all my friends particularly those with menopause symptoms. I feel she has literally saved my life.

I worked with Melinda to get support with the changes that come with perimenopause. My period had become very erratic, my body temperature was constantly up and I was feeling low on energy. Melinda really focuses on your whole body and mind and looks at your wellbeing history from the early years onwards, rather than just dealing with something in isolation. Everything changed as the appointments progressed and I took the prescribed herbal medicine: the hot episodes went away, my period became regular again and my libido returned. Sleep got better and I feel on the whole very relaxed and less anxious.
I feel so blessed to have met Melinda!
I didn't want to go down the HRT route and a friend introduced me to Melinda. She is so caring and lovely, easy to talk to and really listens to everything you say. Within 2 weeks of taking her medicine I was literally a different person. I've been with her now for a good couple of years I think, if not more. I've recommended her to two friends, for different things to me, but they also take her medicine and feel much better for it. I don't know what I'd do without her!
When I first met with Melinda I was tired, anxious, perimenopausal and feeling disconnected from myself. I wanted to make changes but didn't know where to start. Melinda took time to understand my lifestyle and what I might need to stimulate the old me back to life. With a mix of herbal medicines, diet tweaks and regular exercise, I am back! I feel motivated, focussed and very happy and at peace. Thank you Melinda, it has been life changing!
Melinda gave me a tailored treatment plan to help with not only perimenopausal symptoms like brain fog, lack of quality sleep, anxieties and joint aches but also energy and motivation. The consultations in between were really helpful and because she listens and advises so well, it's like taking a therapy session. Now, just a few months later, I have no joint cramps, I'm sleeping well and full of energy which means I'm more motivated with regular gym sessions and outdoor activities. This has had the much welcome knock-on effects of easier weight loss and increase in confidence. Personally for me, the return to the quality sleep I enjoyed as a younger woman has been the biggest game-changer to my mental health.
