Perimenopause isn’t just an imbalance between oestrogen and progesterone. It’s a phase in a woman’s life when many other hormones and systems are disrupted, resulting in various metabolic shifts that affect us physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Let’s explore how your liver breaks down used oestrogen and how to support it.
