Natural help for menopause

This website is dedicated to women looking for a natural approach to managing menopausal symptoms, and a safe alternative to HRT, using diet, lifestyle and herbal remedies.

My name is Deanne Greenwood, I’m a Medical Herbalist and I have a special interest in women’s hormonal problems, including the menopause. I have helped support many women through this natural transitional period, seeing women as patients, writing articles, giving talks and running workshops, and by being a woman who has been through menopause herself.

I hold consultations in person or by Skype, FaceTime or telephone.

Have a read through, or click on the sections you feel relate particularly to you. Start helping yourself right now, it only takes a few minutes!
