Tara’s Story of Overcoming the Pain and Fatigue of Menopause

Here at Longevity, our mission is to love God and serve people, and we love hearing stories from patients who have experienced amazing transformations with their health. Enjoy this interview with our patient, Tara, as she tells her story of improved quality of life during the menopause transition.

What were your primary health concerns starting at our practice? Describe your symptoms.

When I came to Longevity in July of 2020, I was experiencing nearly every symptom of menopause, which also very much so mimicked the symptoms of adrenal fatigue I experienced in an earlier season of life. I was having 12-15 hot flashes throughout the day and night, and severe headaches multiple days per week.


What were your first appointments like?  What was your response to the treatment? 

My practitioner, Lis Frey, normalized what I was experiencing, but also encouraged me that she has had many patients with similar symptoms who now feel so much better. She offered me that same hope! I came to understand through the Bioenergetic testing what my body lacked and how that depletion was related to the symptoms I was experiencing. I left the office with hope and with the supplements she wanted me to take over the course of the following two months. 


Describe your overall health picture today.  What improvements have you experienced? 

Within weeks, all of my symptoms had decreased or diminished altogether, which was so encouraging! I feel so much better–I rarely have a headache, and I can count on one hand the number of hot flashes I have had in the past few months. It inspired me to continue taking the supplements! I had a follow-up appointment in September, and my whole system was better! I am continuing on that same supplement regimen until December, when I will have my next appointment with Lis. At that time, she is hopeful that I can begin a routine regimen with much fewer supplements.  


What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center, the practitioners and staff?  

I am so impressed with Longevity and the care and concern they offer patients. What my regular PCP considers to be “normal” for this stage of my life was wreaking havoc on my body. I wasn’t sleeping. I was irritable. I had little to no energy. I was in bed several nights per week with deafening headaches. Lis assured me that I would feel better, and I do!


Longevity is here to lessen the pain and frustration of the menopause transition. 

For many women, the symptoms and changes that can occur during the menopause transition can be a doozie, disrupting daily activities and an overall sense of well-being. But luckily, Longevity is here to help! We carry a variety of natural herbs and supplements to help with mood swings, hot flashes, sleep issues, poor libido, and weight gain that can come with this season. We also offer therapies like Acupuncture, Lymphatic Drainage Massage, and HOCATT to promote healthy hormone balance and endocrine function.
