For Ellen Dolgen, menopause education is a mission. Spurred by her own experience struggling with the symptoms of menopause, Dolgen has devoted the last ten years of her life to helping other women during this often difficult time. While she’s not a doctor or scientist, she’s “talked the talk” with countless menopause experts, so that she can “walk the menopause walk” with you and share the keys to this menopause kingdom.

Together with her son, Jack, she created this new, comprehensive guide to all things menopause—the symptoms, the treatments, the long-range effects on a woman’s health. Dolgen shares the expertise of numerous specialists to replace confusion and embarrassment with medically sound solutions, presented in an entertaining and informative way. You’ll find detailed descriptions and treatments for the symptoms you or your loved one may experience, from hot flashes and mood swings to mental fogginess and loss of libido, and lots more in between.

In addition to sharing the latest research and proven treatments, Dolgen offers guidance to finding a menopause specialist who’s right for you, and she provides a clear explanation of what tests to ask for. You’ll also learn about the latest studies on hormone replacement as well as alternative therapies and remedies. Finally, Dolgen shares the real-life experiences of  women—and those who love them—as they traverse the crazy ups and downs of perimenopause and menopause.

Her motto is: Suffering in silence is OUT! Reaching out is IN!

About the author

Ellen Dolgen is the Founder and President of Menopause Mondays. After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen Dolgen 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 books.

As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, EllenDolgen.com was born. EllenDolgen.com is a platform from which Ellen reaches the true needs of her readers through varied and substantive discussions of menopause, women’s health, and the modern woman’s life today as a menopausal woman. Her readers gain the access and knowledge needed to take charge of their health and happiness.

In addition to Ellen’s ever-growing social media presence, EllenDolgen.com has become “the place” on the web for informative and entertaining women’s menopause and wellness engagement. Ellen was #1 on Dr. Oz Sharecare.com Top 10 HealthMakers on Menopause. In 2012, 2013, and 2014 EllenDolgen.com was named first on the list of the “Best Menopause Blogs” by Healthline.

Ellen has founded a women’s health and wellness program that provides corporate education events for businesses, healthcare institutions, and other organizations. She produces and facilitates Menopause Mondays Parties™ for organizations across the country. In addition, she works with pharmaceutical companies in helping them to have a new point of view in order to better understand and address women’s health needs.

Jack Dolgen is a writer with a background in music, comedy, and comedic songwriting and production. After growing up in southern Arizona, Jack moved to New York to attend NYU, where his writing began in earnest. He studied travel writing and comedic non-fiction. All the while, Jack was playing in bands, making records, and touring the country. That’s when he started writing a book about menopause.

That’s right. If you think YOU have mommy issues, talk to the man who co-wrote, self-published, then formally sold a book—to Hyperion/Voice—about menopause with his mother.

While working with his mom (and seeking therapy for same), Jack began co-writing and producing comedy songs with several comedians, namely his song-writing partner, Rachel Bloom (F**k Me Ray Bradbury, You Can Touch My Boobies). He recently served as Executive Music Producer and co-songwriter for Rachel’s CBS/Showtime pilot, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

Jack is the co-host of the popular storytelling podcast “Doodie Calls with Doug Mand” and regularly contributes theme songs and original music for film, TV, and commercials.

Jack currently resides in Los Angeles, where he performs in comedic music and story telling shows at the UCB Theater and other venues around town.

Four Steps to Sanity—No Doctors, No Antidepressants, No Fuss

Are you one of the millions of women who feels like there is a giant boulder strapped to your back? You are exhausted but can't sleep. You find absolutely no joy in anything you do or in the people around you. You are forgetful and easily confused. You are overwhelmed, anxious, and emotionally bankrupt. In general, you feel like crap. Your doctor has told you it's all in your head and you feel like you are going insane!

Mia Lundin has heard all of this before and knows exactly how to help. She has treated and cured more than 3,000 women of all ages and stages of life who felt like they were 'losing it,' and who were initially misdiagnosed and prescribed pointless antidepressants or one-size-fits-all HRT by busy doctors. After considering the whole woman and the lifestyle she lives, Mia revealed the culprit in almost all of her cases to be a combination of brain chemistry and hormone imbalance. Never a standardized solution, Female Brain Gone Insane is the first book to tackle the emotional symptoms and issues associated with hormone and brain-chemistry imbalances while giving you the same wisdom, advice, and results that Mia offers her patients through her private practice.

The easiest and most compassionate program you'll ever find, Female Brain Gone Insane will guide you step by step through the scary maze of self-doubt and fear. You will learn how to listen to and identify your own symptoms to get started on your emotional rescue plan and take action toward sanity right now.

Haylie Pomroy has helped countless clients lose up to 20 pounds in just 4 weeks –all through the fat-burning power of food.

Hailed as “the metabolism whisperer,” Haylie reminds us that food is not the enemy, it’s the rehab needed to rev-up your sluggish, broken-down metabolism and turn your body into a fat-burning furnace.
 
On this plan you’re going to eat a lot. You’re going to eat three full meals and at least two snacks a day – and you’re still going to lose weight. What you’re not going to do is count a single calorie or fat gram. You’re going not to ban entire food groups. You’re not going to go carb-free or vegan or go cold turkey on the foods you love. Instead, you’re going to rotate what you’re eating throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan carefully designed to induce precise physiological changes that will set your metabolism on fire.
 
Phase I (Monday-Tuesday): Lots of carbs and fruits
Phase II (Wednesday-Thursday): Lots of proteins and veggies
Phase III (Friday-Sunday): All of the above, plus healthy fats and oils
 
By keeping your metabolism guessing in this specific and deliberate way, you’ll get it working faster. This isn’t just a theory, it’s the results-based product of Haylie Pomroy’s successful programs.  It’s worked for celebrities, for athletes, and for people with chronic illnesses who need to lose weight, doctor’s orders.  Now it’s going to work for you.
 
In 4 weeks not only will you see the weight fall off, you’ll also see your cholesterol drop, your blood sugar stabilize, your energy increase, your sleep improve, and your stress dramatically reduce. All thanks to the miraculous power of real, delicious, satisfying food!
 
Complete with 4 weeks of meal plans and over 50 recipes – including vegetarian, organic, and gluten-free options – this is the silver bullet for the chronic dieter who has tried every fad diet and failed, the first time dieter attempting to kick her metabolism into gear, and anyone who wants to naturally and safely eat her way to a skinner, healthier self.
