I don't know anyone else who is a "menopause expert", trying to help women conquer this all naturally without giving up happiness and fun in their lives.

At 55 years old, I am known as a disruptor and thought-leader to 1000's of gorgeous women across the globe.

I’m also the author of five books and three "booklets"  that fully explain menopause misery and what's causing It, that doctors will NEVER tell you.

Which is why I created "The Menopause Weight Loss Library".

I'm a certified holistic detoxing health specialist, and a metabolic genius.

What is now a world class consulting empire, with clients in South Africa, Jordan, Canada, & the UK, began as a Facebook group that I created in early 2014 to inspire and empower other women to embrace a med free menopause.

How did I even end up in this unusual consulting career? I got fat, sick, and tired!

Speaker 1:

Hello, Michelle. What's up, honey? How are you so good to have you here. Thank you for being here. Thank you so much. I saw what you were all about. I've heard you speak and clubhouse. I have just been so inspired by you. You are talking about a topic. Most people are not talking about think we're

Speaker 2:

Not talking about it, but I'm talking about it.

Speaker 1:

And I knew I wanted to bring you to all the women in my life, in my, in my audience. Um , because what you have to share is just so important. So thank you for being here all the way from Florida. Could you introduce yourself who you are, what you do for a living?

Speaker 2:

I am. Jianna kind of like Versace. It's an easy way to remember my name. And I call myself the menopause master. I live in West Palm beach, Florida, and I call myself the menopause master because I have a mission. And my mission is to help women look and feel sexy and fabulous at getting to the root cause of what ails them. It's not necessarily the menopause, but what's crossing the threshold of the menopause. So that's where we're going to find out. What's really making your health miserable. It's not just solely the change in your estrogen and your progesterone. And then , uh , my zone of genius is getting to the root cause of the menopause misery. So you can fire your doctors and kick the meds to the curb.

Speaker 1:

Brilliant. Thank you. Tell us why you care. Why is this topic? Why have you zeroed in on this topic? Why is , why do you care so much?

Speaker 2:

Right? No one says I want to be a menopause mentor or a menopause mentor or better than coach. I think you'll agree. And most women would agree. No one has this conversation. Our mothers had a conversation. This is what happens when you turn into a woman and you get your period and you need to use these products. And they kind of teach us when that happens. But no one talks about when this winds down, obviously because we're grown ups by the time this happens. But , um , my mother, when she was 42, I was 21. And I remember getting a phone call. Your mother went to the hospital for an emergency DNC, which I didn't even know what that was. But of course, if I hear my mother's in the hospital, I go to the hospital and she had been bleeding for two years now, why is my mother not getting help for two years? I don't know. But a lot of women don't, you know, so whatever was happening, finally hit a head and she got an emergency DNC, which is basically a hysterectomy. I think she got a full hysterectomy with the uterus and the ovaries, although I don't know those details. And then you get put on HRT, which we really didn't have conversations about. But then as I turned from 40 to 41, excuse me, I began writing this book about looking good over 40. And for my age, I wanted to expand what I did and get on TV and radio and stages and talk more about looking good over 40, because I was into health, but not to the degree that I am today. And so as I began writing this book, which I never knew how to write a book. So, you know, it's taking a while. And that year when I went from 40 to 41, I gradually started were not gradually. I rapidly started to put on weight where like every week the scale was going up, Oh my God, what's going on? Because I really wasn't doing anything differently than I had been doing. And so what do people do you go to the doctor, you know what we do? And I go , what's going on? What's wrong with me? What's wrong. If you go to the doctor and say, I'm fat, I'm sick and I'm run down . I'm tired. And that's what happened to me. It was more than just not fitting in my clothes, but that's also devastating too . You know, I live in New York city. I was in a very competitive business. And now when I go into the closet, nothing is fitting and there's nothing more aggravating because you put on a pair of pants and you can't separate. What goes through your brain? Like, Oh my God, I'm so fat. And that's very derogatory talk, but that's the truth. I'm so fat. I'm a loser. What am I doing? And you always feel something is wrong with you. And so the quick version over the next four years, I saw five doctors, three endocrinologists, the gynecologist and an internist. And they all do the same thing. They here's prescriptions eat less and work out more. And I ask you, ladies, if you're in this position right now, can you eat less and work out more? No , you're starving. And you're tired. So when I was 43, I was like, I got a hot flash. And I was like, is this now we associate menopause with

Speaker 3:

Old lady. I know

Speaker 2:

43. And I'm a childless unmarried woman . So I have a very young spirit, not that married women don't, but I'm never going to be a grandma on the technical term. So for me, that, that labels, Oh my God. You know, so I was like, is this the year I turned into an old woman? And I was like, that freaked me out. But , um, when I was like 37, I heard Suzanne Somers on some radio shows. And in my head, I said, Oh, when that happens to me, I'll just do what she's doing. It sounds like she knows what she's talking about. So of course now I'm 43. I get her book and I read, I don't know which one, but one of the books and I'm like, Oh , I don't agree with any of this. I do not believe intuitively that

Speaker 3:

We require extra

Speaker 2:

Colonel Madsen . BHRT is a med note. You can call it natural. It's still something compounded and created. And it, it's not, it's supposed to take the place of your natural hormones and just, it just doesn't make sense to me. But before that, I had that strong opinion. So I look up body logic is where you get BHRT . So I had to drive all the way from New York to Philadelphia to go to one and they do your labs. And so back then labs were like on these big spreadsheets. They're not like they are today with computers, but , um, cause that was , uh, 11 years ago for me. And so there's a spreadsheet and it's, you could be from zero to 500, let's say, and you're here. And I said to, the guy said only my progesterone was low, but you should get on these bio-identical hormones. And I said, well, what will they do for me? I didn't really understand what does a hormone do? And what could these fake hormones do? Like, I think a hormone is a really serious part of my body with , you know, and , um, I think I'm the only woman who asked this man, that question, because I just know I'm very street smart. I read body language. He didn't have an answer, like a deer in the headlights. He didn't have an answer and he just sat silent and I, well , how much do they cost $5 a month? And I'm like, yeah , no , I don't think so. You know, I just, I didn't feel that was the diagnosis, you know? So that was really the catalyst that got me to like really start feverish, leaf fever, actually researching what they were, because that's all you hear about. And that's what all the doctors do. You need to get down HRT, HRT, but you can pull up anything on Google and you can see HRT causes cancer and HRT does not cause cancer. So they have to dig and dig and dig. And I found this one, fantastic man. And it's not that I was looking for a man to say, Oh, this is the information I want. But it's the information that made sense to me. Common sense if he had a very strong sentence that I have stolen from him, he's passed away. So I figured it's okay. And it was this Dr . John Lee that said menopause, and wouldn't this , if you come across this on Google and you're like, me menopause is the biggest fraud perpetrated on American women in the past 80 years. Now it's 90 years. Cause that was 10 years ago when I found that , what does he say that? So I started reading everything and, and the light bulb went off and then I just got more into it and you have to really research their studies. Okay. Who paid for the study? What were the, who, who made this study? So there's a lot to tell, but I'll give you this quick bit to give you the opinion. Why I not only think it's BS, I agree with this man a hundred percent. It is the biggest fraud. And I think the acts of the medical community is criminal. What they do to women, because there are a lot of women that do get sick. So, so when they have the study, that's not the original HRT, but there was T and like that was back in the thirties. And then that killed, that gave a lot of women cancer. But then they knew this drug and gave women cancer for many, many years, more like 10 to 20 years, the original estrogen replacement therapy, which they said would help eliminate miscarriages, which they're doing something good. Maybe there was marriages in the thirties. I don't know, but it did the opposite. It made babies miscarry. And then it gave the women who took it endometrial cancer and their offspring and the offspring of the offspring and the males to had reproductive issues. So I'm like, Oh my God, that's in the soup . I will put a lot of faith in the FDA because for 30 plus years they said, okay , this was okay. You knew it was bad. After the first time someone got cancer and over 10 million women took that . So then the study to move it into hormone replacement therapy, because now they know there's a market there's money. There was a study in like 1966 on the Island of Puerto Rico. Okay. Why, why Puerto Rico? Why not in the continuous United States? Well , maybe cause in 1966, we certainly didn't have communications the way we do now. People spoke less English in Puerto Rico. I bet in 66. So they had 126 women in the study for what became the, the most recent HRT back in the sixties, 126 women were in the study. 20 of them had adverse reactions and five died. I think that's a lot five out of a thousand is a different portion than five out of 126. And , and I also got , and they kind of coerced these women. Like you won't get these benefits if you don't do the study kind of thing. And so we don't really know what went on, but based on that one study, the FDA is like, okay, this stuff is safe. And then they paid this other doctor whose name escapes me right now. I'm sorry. Um, who, I can't remember his name, but you can find it . He wrote a book, they paid him the equivalent of like $12 million today, back in 1968, it might've been by then to write a book called feminine forever feminine forever. Like we're going to be unfeminine. Michelle, do you feel on feminine? No . You're of a certain age that I'm certain you're in perimenopause . I'm nine

Speaker 3:

Years. I'm nine years post .

Speaker 2:

There's not an unfeminine drop of my skin, but they did this propaganda campaign. Here's the book by a doctor. And then they hired these ghost writers that put articles in all the magazines, our mothers read red book, cosmopolitan families ,

Speaker 3:

All those things that are weather and the propagation

Speaker 2:

Propaganda campaigns begin. And it goes like it does today. And there was a lot of problems. And then there's a lot of , um, like you can get these people that say, Oh, the women's health study was really only happened because for the first time in the history of the, I forget the organization, but some big, you know , government organization , women , that was the head of it. And she's like, we need to study women. So they did 250,000 nurses, you know, cause they're a good study. They're really not a good study because nurses are very unhealthy because of the hours they keep. Many of them are very metabolically dysfunctional because they work overnight shifts and go against their circadian rhythms and, and they stopped the study because too many were sick. But then there's these other places.

Speaker 3:

Oh no, the women's health study approved this. So it's very confusing. Yes . Very, very , uh , confused brain shuts down.

Speaker 2:

I'm in . And I did it myself and maybe you did too. And other ladies listening. So you're going to stop looking for the information and do nothing. Right ? And then the meantime you were getting more fat, more sick

Speaker 3:

And you're watching the scale. I think a lot of us as , um, you know, at a certain age, I mean, we, we do , we do, we work like nothing's changed. We work out, we're eating the same, but yet the scale keeps going up. It keeps going up and you're just like, well , I'm not eating burgers and fries. Like why ? So talk to us about why that happens. And what's the alternative. Everyone says, you know ,

Speaker 2:

Eating clean is a very vague term. There's not one modality of nutrition. Uh, I am against plant-based and vegan. I was a vegan for eight years. I thought that was the answer. I never believed the hype that you're going to run out of minerals. I love vegan food. But guess what you run out of minerals and minerals are really the key, like to put the key in the ignition of your metabolic health, which of your thyroid number one, your thyroid runs every cell of your body. It respirators every cell. It runs the five major components, your muscles, your muscles, your brain, like every major function is thyroid related. So really what's happening is there's just a degradation, a slow degradation by not getting the essential proteins you need every single day. So then, you know, it's like, you can, you can put the high quality gas in your car. Like, so you think you're eating clean, but you don't check the tires and you don't change the oil and you don't check the filters. Your car's not going, it'll run, but not as well. So it's a good way. I equate how the body works. So when I talk about your metabolic processes, I talk about what's under your hood. So your hood is from here until where the food exit and everything that the food does in between. So from the moment you put food in your mouth and begin crunching it, enzymes start working and certain vitamins are extracted from there. And then they have jobs to do. They work in clusters. So for the thyroid to work optimally, it needs iodine, B12, and selenium to make it work best. And your body has to be in the pH of between 6.3 and 6.8. And most people are not like, so when I began working with ladies, that's the first thing we're going to do is do what I call a metabolic health consult. For five days, we take these measurements of things that I just told you that were really easy. You do them from home, they don't hurt or anything. You just take these readings. And then we look at your symptoms and to look at your food. And that's going to tell me more then any thyroid blood test, because the blood tests that people, their program will go to the doctor. Michael , there's so many people that so many women like the doctor says, my thyroid's fine. It doesn't give the full broad spectrum of the reading and then the totality. So it all works together. So basically, you know, you now you're over 40 or 45 year 50. The menopause is creeping in and you just don't have the optimum nutrition. But the good news is like, you ate your way there and you eat your way at all. It is turning up the dial on the nutrition. So it's super fun because you get to, I like to say, you get to eat more and weigh less. It's not really like a more, but when you're eating you're cause you're not eating garbage. But when you more dense nutrition, you change your cravings. You change your insulin. So the three keys to lowering your weight for the menopause, you have to lower your insulin, lower your cortisol and lower your estrogen. And there are no magic pills that are going to make that happen. It can only happen through food and for your cortisol, you have to make your life less stressful and more. So then we go into that. You have to work on your sleep. You have to make your sleep. You've got to have your life organized. You can't have children that run wild. You can't be mad at your husband all the time. So there's a lot of things you have to do to create that in semis . And you have to do it because your future depends on it. It's amazing. I'm going to pop up your , um , your box because I want people to

Speaker 3:

Know that you are a three-time author. Tell us about these books. My goodness, and look at the before and after the first book. So you lost what?

Speaker 2:

The one thing that when, when I say the first book was called, why American women are so fat, sick, tired, and angry. Because of what I discovered with this doctor, that menopause medical menopause treatment is the biggest fraud perpetrated on American women. We're being lied to, we're being lied to about low fat food. Nope , go Nope , low fat food and calorie counting and Oh, just work out more. Can anybody work out more? No, I'm sorry.

Speaker 3:

So we're being lied to about the food go. We're being lied to about medications because here's the next thing that happens is

Speaker 2:

So, okay. You go to the doctor. Cause we trust the doctors. We put these doctors in their white coats up on pedestals and they give you a prescription and you think it's going to do something. And then it does nothing. And then I believe that women think, Oh my God, it didn't work for me. We feel more broken than we felt. The day we got the prescription and options are really just only for symptoms. And then recently I came across a woman that by just her menu got off 24 prescriptions. And she said, she's like in her forties, you know, and she'd been on them since her twenties. And she said, 12 of the prescriptions were for symptoms. And the other 12 were the symptoms of the prescriptions, you

Speaker 3:

Know? And that's what a

Speaker 2:

Terrible domino effect. And it doesn't get to the root cause. And another girl I'm working with, she pays a functional medicine doctor, $150 a month. She said , he's a concierge doctor. And he never gets to the root cause. It's always, he thinks he is, but they're not. So some do. And some don't, it's not like a one size fits all. It just depends on how much that doctor's personal interest is in getting to it. So when ladies say to me, Oh Gina , you weren't that fat. You know, I find that very insulting because how fat should I be for you to pay attention and to value my experience, that picture was taken on a razor flip phone. And the day I remember the day I took that picture. Cause I, I had had such hope and I didn't even know what I knew yet to really get skinny yet, but I was kind of what a lot of women do. We look to these fitness models and I'm going to , I wanted to, I did enter a fitness contest. That was the beginning, but I was still too fat. And I came in number 13 out of 13, but you know , I said I was going to do it. So I did it. But I took that picture for the before picture. And I remember being mortified, taking that picture because as you can just see, my life is drained out , looking at the picture on my desk here. The life was drained out of me being in a bikini, feeling horrible, my, my best friend to take this picture. Cause I wouldn't have my boyfriend do it. You know? And I just said, someday, I'm going to need this picture. This picture is good . I'm going to have an after someday . And I want to give everyone hope that that could happen because now I'm 54, that picture was 41. They never dreamed that I could look fit. Like Amanda said to me the other day, you look like you can move your own furniture. Which I mean, I know he's flirting . He thought , I thought it was very cute. Cause they do look fit. And who thought you could look fit at 54?

Speaker 1:

You don't even look 54.

Speaker 2:

Never going to see it. You know, no offense. I'm not one of those gals. But the reason we do it, the original question was what's my passion about it. It's more than the bikini because here's two things that I talk about greatly. The greatest demographic, getting a divorce. It's called gray divorce are people over 50. How many regular American people have more money after divorce? Not really. It's going to affect your life. And I know a gal that's getting divorced at 52 and it's really going to hurt her. She's I just can't do it. I can't stand him. But you really have to think about your dividing assets and weight , his demographic declaring bankruptcy or women in their seventies. So you have to be strong. Your health has to be strong. Whatever you do for work has to be strong. There's age discrimination in the workplace. Now maybe you've been a stay at home woman. And after you get divorced, you might have to work. And you're going to have to present yourself as energetic, ugly , and full . And it just, you have to be strong. So for me, the muscles and I'm not a fitness model and I'm not trying to be one, but I need to be strong. I need to be able to walk upstairs. I need to be able to chase my dog. I like to ride a bike. I like mobility. And if I don't have that, that scares me to death. That I couldn't take care of myself or I have to walk with a Walker or something. And then I believe this over seventies, demographic is being hurt by the fifties divorce. And I like to say menopause is the greatest threat to not only your health, but your marriage or relationship your family. Cause then you're going to have children from broken homes. Nobody wants that . Nobody wants to go to Eastern two different houses and have all these new step people in their lives. And it's the biggest threat to your future. Now it's not your fault because you didn't know this information. Every woman's going to have a menopause that still has all her parts. And you're the only one who can do something about it.

Speaker 1:

So yeah , that's great insight and yeah, I , I totally can see what you're saying. It is honestly like such an important aspect of our mid-life . So before we went on the air, we were talking about gut health and we fail Dallas here. She's she's a , uh , she's. She says you're speaking or language. Um, we've talked about gut health and we talked about cravings. Give us some insight into that. You, you were sharing about , uh, shifting what you create for right .

Speaker 2:

I know is like I wanted to go to natural path school. Honestly. I want that doctor title for my ego and to shove it down my brother's throat that I became a doctor. But then I, as I had these natural path mentors and they're not all like this, you have to really find somebody that very specifically like there's really unhealthy natural paths, you know? So I have three wonderful mentors in my life and I had talked to this one for a couple of years and whenever we would speak, I'm like taking notes. This man is so brilliant and he's in his seventies and two of my mentors are in their seventies and they still do iron man triathlons. And I think that's very impressive, you know? So it just goes to show you the muscles and the protein is really important. And then there's another one. Who's the, he's like really the leading , um, gut health expert in the world. And so I had him on my podcast too. So everything I know is just because I'm regurgitating what they told me and it makes sense. And then I use their products and then they work. So when, when you're not processing your food, so a lot of the overweight issues and one of my really good friends just figured out her food transit time is poor. So for so long, she's had constipation. I'm sorry. We talk about these kinds of things, the food isn't moving. So then it stuck in your intestines are like, I don't know how long, but we know they're super long. Maybe your lady watching those , but the food is fermenting in there and fermentation creates gases. And then there's a nerve that goes from your gut up to your brain called the baguettes nerve and the gases travel up and they, the gases permeate your brain and then it inter intercept your synopsis. And so when we have brain fog and the forgetfulness and the instability, anxiety, depression, all that, like of course there are some people that have serious depression, but chronic depression, if you were coming to me, I would say, we're going to look at your gut health. We're going to look at your menu and let's start there before we start putting chemical petrol chemicals on your brain that are going to operate on your central nervous system. So I, once they started to figure out all this stuff and became as smart as I am today, when I , uh, I , my boyfriend killed himself when I was 34. So obviously that's very upsetting. I started to get really bad hormonal acne. My mother had hormonal acne all her life. So it was always a slim person with good skin. I never even had acne as a kid, but now getting it in my thirties, I went to a woman's doctor women's medical center. And what do they do? Take this low dose antibiotic. Okay. You take it for however long. I don't remember. But then when it was done, the pimples come back, nom in New York, I'm in the beauty business. I, I have to feel like I look good and feel comfortable. And I've got all these red cystic pimples. So I'm like, I need the prescription. I need it. Cause I don't know any better. I was on that for nine years, nine years straight. And I'm sure that that antibiotic antibiotics, birth control stress, poor eating kills your good gut health. So now I have bad gut health. And I think that really just happened at the time. Now I'm putting on this weight because my gut health is so bad. It's not processing my food. So a lot of it's the lack of digestion. And so may not be eating bad foods like fattening foods. Like you're not eating donuts , but what you are eating, isn't getting to work. As I started to say earlier, all of these clusters of vitamins and enzymes start going to work in different areas of your body. Like I'm a, I'm a physiology nerd. I don't expect everyone to be that way. But as I desired to learn this, I like, I, well, I'm memorizing this stuff that I would've never cared about when I was in college. No, but now I like it. Cause I just really like knowing how it all works. So really it's all about, there's a just degradation of the processes and the gut health. So here's what I like to say, which I think your friend will like, that's watching when you, first thing you have to do is assess the gut health. And that is like, are things wrong in the gut house. So if they say I want to lose weight, Jianna okay. We're going to go look at your gut health first and what almost everybody has a problem. If you're struggling to lose weight, I like to say that's like, we're sending in the firefighters to put out the fire of whatever's going on down there. So that will be there. Some products that I use to kill, they kill only the bad gut health, not the good and like , how did they do that? So I learned how that happens and it happens like the, the good gut health has like a film, like a Milky film around it that protects it from these products that kill the bad gut health. And then it sweeps it out. Then we want to send in the probiotics. And those are like, the paramedics are coming in now to repair. Pardon?

Speaker 3:

Yeah, no, I know all about the program ,

Speaker 2:

The repair and there's prebiotics, you know, it can get a little complex. So you've got to repair that first. And then we look at your menu, we'll look at the symptoms you have. Like, so one of the big , um , soap boxes I stand on is that the top five symptoms of menopause problems and um, thyroid issues and Hashimoto's are all the same. Really? Yes. The top five are the same. And one of them might be that your selenium deficient, that means you have hair loss, you have low energy. These are all a Hashimoto's , um, uh , gut problems. I don't have them memorized right in front of me right now. But , um, maybe you just are low in selenium, but if you go to a doctor with those five symptoms, I guarantee you, they're going to put you on hormone replacement therapy, Synthroid Welbutrin maybe fenfluramine , like the more prescriptions they write. Like it's crazy when maybe you just need selenium . And the thyroid works in conjunction like with the three B12 selenium and iodine, iodine pulls toxins out of you. So a lot of it, your fat cells are just like little toxin suitcases. So the more you can get toxins out and it's not overnight, but like I'm surprised even I have less cellulite than I used to. I'm not going as soon as say my body's perfect, but it's pretty good. And I even have less cellulite than I used to. Like who could even think that would happen? It's just a little pocket. So the more you can do this and it doesn't mean that you're starving eating rabbit food. It's quite the opposite, more dense nutrition. So it can go to work.

Speaker 3:

Oh my goodness. You're giving us a wealth of never shut up. Um, so I think you're proof that it is possible to have the body of our dreams. I think a lot of us and midlife get resigned because we tried the same thing and we get the same results. Right . And so what you're sharing with us is, is sort of like a beacon of hope. Right? And yeah. And it is possible. So I guess , uh, what are some things people can do now? Like obviously they can reach out to you and they can work with , but what if they can't like, what are some simple steps to take now? You're not going to like number one, quit drinking coffee. Oh no.

Speaker 2:

Let me tell you about coffee. Once I really freaked out a girl that contacted me and we had uterine fibroids and I said, watch this video, do you drink coffee? She said , yeah, I have couple of day . And I show her my, my coffee videos on YouTube and my Instagram coffee indirectly is a cause of hysterectomy. I'll tell you why. So you drink coffee, start drinking coffee, maybe late teens, early twenties, college, whatever. And you drink it every day. It's very yummy. It's soothing. It's very much an emotional thing that we do. I look at my email , have , I bet I have tea now, or I have bone broth, you know , instead of coffee, coffee is a drug. It's the most abused, legal drug in the entire world, coffee every day , grates on your central nervous system. And so your central nervous system is alerts your adrenals. And so that's like, you know, someone, a bad guy comes upon your car. You're getting in the car at the grocery store. And you know, you see that you're , you know what it feels like to have your adrenaline shoot up. Well, that's what coffee's making happen on a daily basis. And you're going to get used to it more and more and more, which means you need more of the drug. You need more of the drug that I can't drink coffee. To me, it feels like I did cocaine. I'm like speedy and crazy. And I don't like it. So I never got into coffee. The first time I drank coffee, I went home sick from work. I didn't like it. I was 18 years old. And then at home I drink the coffee. I feel this focus. I don't drink coffee bad . I've had , have had coffee and I do enjoy it, but I'm not drinking it daily, but it's every single day. So as your central nervous system is graded upon your adrenals are being overtaxed and overworked. Now, when your ovaries shut down, because your body knows you're running out of eggs, the adrenals are the natural system that mother nature created. They're going to turn up the dials to give you the amount of estrogen and progesterone that your body still needs for other functions that estrogen does. You just don't need it for reproduction anymore. So, but it also now the failure of the adrenals, they work in conjunction with the thyroid. The thyroid controls your Menzies . Now they're masked up. It's a slow degradation of progression. Now that's messed up and you are not releasing your cycle a hundred percent. And there's clusters that are remaining behind. And those cells end up turning into fibrates . Now you got fibroids, you got problems. Do you have a painful period? Perhaps? That's why my mother was bleeding, you know, for two years because my mother drank coffee and sweet and low everyday , like, wow, it looks so bad for you. And I think she still does it to this day. So now you're going to go to the doctor cause you've got some problems with your cycle. You're in pain and the doctor's been trained. You've got fibroids. We're going to take out your uterus. Well, did he get rid of the fibroids? He sure did, but what else?

Speaker 3:

I love it. So sorry. That's okay.

Speaker 2:

And then she'll just bark until I do it.

Speaker 3:

Let me just say real quick. I want people to share this. If you have a woman in your life that you care about, Deanna is dropping some serious wisdom here. So please take a second to share this with people that you care about. Guys,

Speaker 2:

I'm very unwavering in my opinions. I, I will sit with any medical doctor on a stage and I could go into that too. Cause I was in a , an event one day and I could not be leave . What was coming out of the OB GYN smell. But so we'll finish up with the coffee. So now they're taking out your uterus and you know, I don't need my uterus, but I think you need everything, whatever God gave you, you're supposed to. But if you do take out the ovaries, it does upset things. And even dogs after they get spayed , they put on a little bit of weight. I guarantee of doctors are never sitting down having this conversation with ladies because then there's problems. So indirectly your coffee, coffee is causing the hysterectomy. And then when I read this book, which I don't believe that rebook , but I have critical thinking skills. There's a book that talks about there's every year, there's 500 to 700,000 women in the United States get hysterectomy is 90% of them are unnecessary because they're not cancer per se . If you have cancer, of course make that decision. But how about , about fibroids can turn into cancer. But how about you try to dissipate fibroids. Fibroids are just a buildup of toxins, which you can do by changing your menu and detoxing and doing things like that.

Speaker 3:

Wow.

Speaker 2:

Try that first, you know ?

Speaker 3:

Yeah. Yeah. I love it. You're giving us back some control, not control that I really like Susan is here. We'll be friends . Susan is like , she's not very happy about the coffee. I'm not very about the coffee

Speaker 1:

For 90 days.

Speaker 2:

I have a 13 minute podcast where all I'm doing is reading people's women's testimonials. After they quit coffee, they get rid of anxiety, depression, they sleep better. It's acidic. So it upsets your stomach and tell you when you find out , uh , what your body pH is that tells you. So, and these are the, we have a low pH that's the precursor to fibromyalgia lupus, all kinds of , um , auto-immune disorders, which people are programmed to think. There's a lot of people that think you've got this disorder. You've got this label. Now you can't do anything about it. And I would think it would make you feel defective. Like this one friend of mine who was diagnosed with Ms. Um , when I met her, she walked with a cane. It was like seven or eight years ago. And I'm like, my God, this woman's so young. She's like 36 or 37. She's walking with a cane. And we ended up becoming friends and she ended up staying with me between apartments. So we became really good friends and shared our story and stuff. And she here's what goes on. This is why I call it criminal. The pharmaceutical runs everything, especially with, you know , we won't even get into the vaccines today, but everything's about the pharmaceutical is the, the highest spending lobby on Washington DC. Then like they spend double what the second spending lobbyists does. So she's like, Jenna , I have a free dinner at Maggiano's on the Las Vegas trip . I said , Oh, how do you get that? Cause I like Maggiano's , you know? And she said, well, this drug company is putting on me , invite people with Ms . So we go to it cause I'm dying to know what they do. And what they say is I'm trying to, I'm already the beginning stage of like not digging the medical community, but I wasn't as strong in my convictions convictions as I am now. So we go to a room and there's about 50 people in a private room at Maggiano's. Every single one of them was in a wheelchair and the drug company will pay for this dinner, which was a three-course dinner because they're giving a presentation on a $5,000 a month drug, which their insurance companies are going to . And these were those wheelchairs where they can move themselves, you know, not push ones. That's how advanced their Ms is. And I'm looking at my friend that I now care about. I'm like, is this your future? What are you? Is this what happens? Cause I didn't know. And she's like, it's not happening to me. And even though we didn't know, then what we know now we were so sure that we were going to figure it out. So I've driven her to a lot of doctor's appointments. Sometimes it was very active and I've taken her to the emergency room and I pick up what they say, what they say. She's like Jonah , they're just guessing they don't know. And a lot of it is I don't mean to cuss. They're throwing up the wall. Then since she's been diagnosed with Hashimoto's, which aye , she may not have had the Ms. Oh wow. A hundred thousand dollars in doctor bills Nash. Then when she got diagnosed with the Hashimoto's, at least there was, now I can look at this and that's how she ended up looking more deeply and more and getting tests. And this is just like stool tests and gut bacteria tests . You can get a protein aminos test then guess what? You can do all of these from home. You don't even need a doctor. And I cannot say, you know , legally, I cannot say, Oh, don't do this, but you can just reading what the lab is. And it's much cheaper too . And I have all these tests on my website where you can get losing weight. We're going to keep looking. So calories are in the light, hormones and problems are in the dark. So because she kept looking and got more tests, she blew , she got a stool test and she got, I don't remember the specific test, but then they figured out you are low on this particular bacteria in your gut. It began the conversation about, then they figured out she has a low food transit time. So it just two weeks since she figured that out, she's lost 12 pounds. And now she's going to the bathroom regularly, which she has not done via her own body, you know , without the help of enemas. And they know to help make the stuff move out. And she's like, Jenna, we can talk S H I T . Right? And I, I thought she meant like gossiping about someone. And I said , yeah, of course, you know who ? And she's like, no, I'm , she's so excited because when toxins are moving out of you, where you get your energy back, it's the whole like digestion is the, is the most arduous process your body can do. Now relating that to menopause as you're going through your perimenopause, until you get to that time, the way hormones are released from your body is through your colon. They have to get processed through your liver and then into your colon. So if your liver is clogged and your Colin's clog , they're getting stuck into the toxins. And you know, we won't know what we're talking about. It's gross. But then they get permeated through the intestinal lining and they take a few more spins. Hello, hot flashes. We're taking more school . And then , um, I think this is one of your questions that you were telling me . You're gonna answer. What can we do? So here's the biggest see in menopause groups, every woman does this, does anyone else have this insert horrible symptoms? And I don't know, it just never occurred to me to ask other people. I didn't really care. I just wanted to fix me, but okay. You'd want to think that you're not alone and maybe you're normal, but just because 50,000 other women have it, does it make it normal? And then can say this, what can I take for this insert horrible menopause symptoms? So let's say hot flashes. Oh, can I, do I have something for hot flashes ? I do. But does that, does that mean it's going to get rid of your hot flashes? No, because it's also the rest of the totality of your health profile is where you have to find it. And unless, and until you change the menu and turn up the dial on your nutrition, you can take all the products in the world that you're wasting your money on. It doesn't mean it work . And the third thing, I had three things about other ladies. So here's the third thing I see too. There are, and they make me crazy. I'm going to be honest. They go , uh , seriously lady wrote this in the menopause group . She has dry lips. Is that menopause. Then they think every malaise, which there's a lot over 40, because now you're starting to break down. If you don't take care of yourself, that prima leis is menopause and they can't do anything about it. And there's a lot of times I will be in these groups. I, of course I can't go on other people's groups with like, buy my stuff, read my books, whatever, but I will drop nutrition bombs because morally I feel I can save someone's life. I have that knowledge. I have to let them know. So sometimes there are some really serious questions. So I'll say something and then you're just trying to sell your stuff. You know, I don't care what they say. These things don't matter to me, but that's what they say. Like, okay, should I not try to save your life women that say, if I look at the testimonials on my website, Johnny, you changed my life, John, and you saved my life.

Speaker 3:

Yeah . Tell us about some of those. Tell us about how you work with people, how you work with ladies and tell us about some of the impact that you've had, how that's made you feel.

Speaker 2:

I didn't even know it was going to be this way. Honestly, when it first happened, I just thought, Oh my God, I solved this problem for myself. I didn't even dream. It would be like a way to make a living. But since there's just so many that need it and I did it, I just started sharing. And then slowly, I just composed like first there was the book and I was like, Oh, it can become a course. And then, so for a long time, I wanted to like, if I could wave a magic wand, I want the ladies to join my course and date the metabolic profile. And then we'll see where your nutrition needs to have the dial turned up and mostly it's the same. And then I'm like, then there's ladies. Like they want products. They want products. They want products. And so an opportunity opened up like eight months ago, where very good friend of mine, he's like he bought into a supplement company and he's like two years ago though. And this last summer he's like, Jenna , we have these menopause products, you know, maybe you want to do something with them. I'm like, and it took you two years to tell me. I'm like, sure, let's see what's going on. So that's when me and my friend went over to Tampa because I want to see them. I want to see the facility. I don't want just anything. I'm not doing it just to have my name on something. But though the person they were developed for was an Oriental natural path. And then she had a book. And so they gave me her book. And then I talked with the formulator for hours about the products. And they're very specific. They're very carefully crafted. And then everything, she was about aligns with what I'm about. And they own them. She doesn't do it anymore. So they were available for me to take over. So I did, I changed the book and changed the labels. So there's five products. Now I've got a sixth one on the way. So I have my products and then there's other products, everything that I talk about, I personally still use some people are like, Oh, there's so many products, but you know, do you want to be on meds and pay hospital bills? Or do you want to spend money on products and look good and feel good and have a longer life because of it. So now what I have decided to do to meet everybody halfway is I created what I called the menopause weight loss rescue kit, because don't want to be rescued from your misery. So these are the questions that I get asked. So here's, here's the kit in a box. It's a , literally all the questions are in the box. Like how'd you get in a box? Well, the one thing ladies say to me is why are you against HRT? All those answers are right here. I let a lady , this is the first book. Why American women are so fat , sick, tired, and angry. This book is going to talk about what I called the fraud of medical menopause protocol. And then they're like, Jenna , how can I lose weight over in menopause? Well, there's the menopause weight loss masterclass. It's a very thin book with big print. I know that your attention span is short because we've got the fermented gases in the brain causing. I know it's a , you know, it's like a bathtub read . So then Gemma , what am I doing wrong? This book , uh, it's a tiny, tiny guy, 10 stupid things women do to create menopause. Misery. This is going to literally tell you how the hormones work because the hormones work like a, a feedback loop, like, okay. So say we'll just take insulin for instance. So you eat food and insulin starts to get released from your pancreas. So it gets sent out your pancreas know to stop sending insulin. When the feedback loop has returned, this is how people become insulin resistant . If that process is blocked, which it's blocked by toxins, that the insulin is not getting into the, say, this is a self, but it's got toxins blocking it. Here comes the insulin. It's not reaching it. So it's not, doesn't have the comeback. So what does the pancreas do? Release is more and more and more now your insulin resistance. Cause the cells aren't reacting to it. And it's the , all the hormones are like that. So how can you medically recreate a feedback loop? And honestly, my mother was on HRT for 15 years, 15 years. So from 40 to 57, then like two years ago, I said to her, are you still taking HR teachers ? No, I quit that. I said, well, did you ask your doctor? She's not , I just decided to stop taking it. And I said , did you feel anything? She goes, nothing, nothing didn't feel any different. So that's something to think about. So then they like, so here's the second another question I get Shyanna what can I take for this cost supplement guide? Okay . Because everything that I use and I sell in a step-by-step guide, step one. Now this does include the metabolic profile. So here's where you start taking your readings and you record them. And then you take a picture on your phone and you email it to me and you filled out your health consult. And I take all that information and I give you a very thorough high level natural path taught that my guy that taught it to me, who said, John , don't go to school. I'll can teach you so much more. I, his protocol is my protocol and I didn't have to go to school for it. I just, I read all his books and I can get him on my speed up. And then John , on , what should I eat for menopause? Of course, there's a food guide with pictures. And most of them are easy to figure out. It's not like complex recipes. So you get all the guides

Speaker 1:

Or people can follow you and see what you're eating, which is what I've been doing. Right, right.

Speaker 2:

Simpler my food. And then everything is included in the box. This is more and it works. And it's also including , um, I like , uh , natural skincare and , uh, the same thing that helps your gut helps your skin be beautiful. The less chemicals cause our ovaries are really super sensitive to chemicals. It's more sensitive than you can imagine. So, so much of the menopause misery is really endotoxins and exotoxins. So I'm, you know, I don't give up my now polished , but uh, I try to use, I use bare minerals and I use a soap that's made out of , um, oils, natural safflower oil. It costs $13 and it lasts me over a year because I get in a nice ceramic thing. I just use it for my face at night and I don't need to wash my face in the day. Cause it didn't get dirty while I'm sleeping. So once a night I wash it and I keep this nice non chemical. So, and then I put my silver gel on top of it. Cause it's going to kill bacteria and yeast and yeast can get in your creases. And so I'm doing something good for my skin. It's helpful. You can use this for anything though. Your kids pets, if your pet burns apart , this is there's tons of uses for this. And even now that we're in the age of COVID, this is so much better than the disinfectants. Uh , the sanitizers, the sanitizers, really the FDA, like in the last couple of years made them eliminate all these chemicals. Cause they don't really do what they say. They're going to do this kills over 600 types of bacteria and it's not harming your skin. So that's enough Jianna today.

Speaker 1:

That is a lot of information. We do have a question. Susan asks and I remember I have pH strips that I use in my mouth. So she's asking how do we check our pH could be

Speaker 2:

That's somebody that I know, Oh, it's wonderful. You should check your pH in the morning and your first urine strip and you got to hold it in your sleep . And of course your hands. And I'll tell you a funny story. When I told my mother to do this, she writes to me like I tell her, do your, do your saliva and your, your inches. Should I use the different strips please ?

Speaker 1:

Yeah, really ? Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Well the different strip and just put it in your mouth for like five seconds. And what they do is have there's a , this one I have a more, I don't want to open that cause that's, you know, somebody is looking to be sold to somebody. Um, this one that I have on my website has 10 parameters. I put my glasses on to tell you this. Um, it'd be better to look in my guide because it's bigger. This one, listen to what this one checks, because you can check all this stuff without the doctor's trying to sell you crap. Um, and it's just so much more efficient. The 10 parameters, let me find it in my book.

Speaker 1:

Shh .

Speaker 2:

Um, texts. You , you can do all this you're you're in tell so much your glucose sites , that's your white blood cells. Um , your nitrates , you can tell if there's a urinary tract infection, glucose, the way they test for diabetes, you know you and you can monitor yourself regularly. So you take the grip and you match it up. And I have him in my book that, cause you're not, I don't want you to go through the, I did it all for you. I looked, I'm sorry. I looked up , you just hold it up and match the colors and the colors. It is , um , as your pH, but this strip, I don't want you to put in your mouth, cause it's a little bit yucky. There aren't strips that are specific tests , your protein tests for kidney function. When this marker is alerting, it means that protein is in your urine and to look for why it's happening. That's a sign that you're not digesting everything properly. Then it tests for ketones, which I'm not a keto person. I might have some things that are key Jewish , but I'm not one of those strict keto people. I think he does bad for menopause ladies. Um, for instance, I did fast for seven days once and I did it under the supervision of a radiologist friend and I was too much in ketosis where I was feeling short of breath. And I was like, and that scared me. And he said, you're too much. If you are doing keto, you can check yourself these ways. And then there's a thing called specific gravity that these things check and that checks to see your water balance versus your urine concentration. And so it can tell you specific gravity testing is helpful. If you, it could tell you if you're going to have heart failure, shock diabetes, kidney failure, kidney infection, urinary tract infection, low sodium, and low tons of things. And you don't have to go to the doctor.

Speaker 1:

So this

Speaker 2:

Rescue kit is going to tell you how to take care of yourself for the rest of your life that you will know long before you have chronic illness before it happens. Are there more questions? I love questions. You're awesome. No.

Speaker 1:

How do people cut ? People want to reach out to you? We're going to wrap up. Now they can reach out to you through your website, which is at the bottom of the screen. Yeah. Any other way,

Speaker 2:

Jana maselli.com. My text number is on there. If you would give me your email, the next email you get is my phone number. You can text me. Um, I send out a couple of really good nuggets. I'm always every week I never stopped searching. Like it is literally my job. Cause I know you all have different jobs, but my job is to bring you the most. Up-to-date all natural menopause information. So I'm on tons of newsletters and doctor things. And I'll tell you real quick. Before we wrap up. When I went to this , um , menopause event in New York city, before I moved to Florida, cause I moved to Florida because the Kobe , I was like really excited to go to this event. There's a hundred ladies in the audience, in this panel on stage and panel. And they have this OB GYN who is overweight. I mean, not obese, but very much overweight. You know, not someone I'm going to turn to, Hey , I want to look like you. And you know, there's people in the process of losing weight, which is Amarillo. But this lady also talked about , um, her chin hair, which would be hormonal imbalance and losing her hair up here. And a lot of ladies, the hair loss is not natural and you can do something about it is not a natural sign of aging. And please stop accepting being tired and losing hair is it's thyroid. It's all thyroid thyroid there , but you might be missing vitamin C. And that's why you're not as not athletic, but you know, we run, we walk upstairs. Maybe you can't get upstairs. You might not be getting old. You might just need vitamin C. There's always reasons. So the books all tell about this stuff, but this, we were people in the audience that had a lot of questions about menopause. And here's what she had to say. Well, what we want to do, we, me and the AMA and the FDA, you know , her, her, her masters , you know, slavery med , I call it medical enslavement. We want to put you on her birth control until you're 55 and then swing you into HRT. Why would you want to trick the menopause? Because the menopause symptoms are really chronic illness, different levels. As I've told you today, you can figure that out. And I was just like, yeah , I like to speak. And here she is a woman that's clearly metabolically, not healthy and she's giving advice and I could just see people were not happy with her answers cause she gave no answers that .

Speaker 1:

Thank you. Oh , go ahead.

Speaker 2:

And the HRT will disrupt how you digest health that there are now there's a now , uh , like an industry called , um, psychological gut health because they're realizing how much the drugs affect how you absorb nutrition, that all set up. I'm all done.

Speaker 1:

No, no, no. I just want you, I really want to thank you because I feel like you've given us a lot of empowerment through this conversation. People can realize, start to reflect on what they're doing. Um, not feel bad or wrong, not feel broken, not feel resigned. So you've really given us some valuable information and I just really want to thank you for your time, the proponents for everything.

Speaker 2:

It's always super fun to talk about what I know.

Speaker 1:

And we thought we were going to talk for 30 minutes and look at it. I don't know, like 55 minutes. Oh my God. But I'm so grateful. No . So grateful for this information. And I look forward to following you. People can reach out to you and thank you for what you're doing for women across

Speaker 2:

Good topic, because the gut health is very much related to , um , mental illness and the invisible illness that you talk about. Well, thank you . Thank you, Deanna . Great weekend.
