Perimenopause – the transition to menopause – should be a natural rite of passage for a woman. However, in our modern world full of toxins, where people have too much stress in their lives, eat unhealthily and live a sedentary lifestyle, women are increasingly experiencing harrowing symptoms. When you are plagued with hot flushes, mood swings, insomnia, panic attacks and pain, the world feels like a lonely wilderness.


DEAR TORIOLA LET’S TALK ABOUT PERIMENOPAUSE is an epistolary narrative of a woman’s battles with the problems associated with perimenopause and how she overcame them to be healed, healthy and happy. 


There are increasing number of young people in their early 20s being diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI). In 10% of women, certain underlying causes triggers POI; however, in a staggering 90% of ladies no underlying causes are found. Also, some women experience the symptoms of perimenopause as early as their mid-30s. This book enables women to gain knowledge about their bodies, know what triggers stress, and learn how to bring the body to homeostasis!


This book is beneficial for the following categories of women:

  • Ladies battling with symptoms of perimenopause/menopause (hot flushes, brain fog, anxiety, thinning hair and over 30 more symptoms), and don’t want to go on traditional HRT or Bioidentical hormone treatments.
  • Ladies who have been told by their doctors that they cannot have HRT, due to high risk of cancer, but they want to know how to successfully be symptoms free.
  • Women, ages 20 – 55.
