173: Vanessa Ford on Taking Control of Your Menopause Journey

Aug 09

Vanessa Ford, cofounder of Menolabs, focuses on women’s issues during the perimenopausal/menopausal transition.

Vanessa was prompted to action when, at 44, she began her own transition into menopause. Unsatisfied with the lack of support that women experience during this stage of life, and finding the stereotypes of women in mid-life exasperating and insulting, she created MenoLabs to address what she sees as a glaring need in every woman’s life.

Vanessa’s personal experience with menopause and her passion for moving the conversations around menopause forward means that she is a driving force in everything MenoLabs does, from their probiotic product formulations, including best selling products MenoFit and MenoGlow, to the creation of the MenoLife app for women in menopause, to being the face of the brand in informative videos and across social media.

In this episode, Vanessa Ford talks about:

  • Success during COVID
  • Vanessa’s struggle with periods
  • Menopause rage
  • Common treatment for menopause
  • Menopause+estrogen
  • Foods and water for easier menopause
  • Importance of probiotics
  • Hair health
  • Vanessa’s book
  • App: MenoLife
  • Birthcontrol and menopause
