Taking A Pause and a New Approach to Menopause – Andrea Donsky
Learn more about how Andrea Donsky, a health & wellness expert, is shaking up the Wellness Industry and conversations around Menopause.
Andrea is a pioneer and visionary in the Health + Wellness Industry. She has combined her expertise as a Nutritionist (R.H.N.) and an Entrepreneur to educate the public on living a healthy lifestyle. Andrea inspires people to make healthier choices through her businesses, media appearances, podcasts, books, articles, videos, speaking engagements, and social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram.
Andrea’s first venture in the health + wellness space began more than 22 years ago when she and her partner, Randy Boyer, created the first ever coupon book for natural and organic products in Canada called: The Healthy Shopper. The Healthy Shopper made healthy products available to the masses by reaching 120,000+ consumers annually for 18 consecutive years. Andrea and Randy also published a customized coupon book for Loblaw’s Natural Value department for five years.
In 2007, Andrea founded Naturally Savvy Media Inc., a well-respected multi-media platform with unique content dedicated to healthy living from an integrative perspective. Naturally Savvy’s main property, naturallysavvy.com, serves to educate consumers on how to make healthier choices.
Among her numerous publications, Andrea co-authored “Unjunk Your Junk Food” published by Simon and Schuster (2011, NYC), a book that journalist, author, and mother Maria Shriver endorsed: “Unjunk Your Junk Food has certainly made me more aware of the food that my children eat and the effects it has on our body and mind.”
Andrea’s newest venture—Morphus—is a no-judgment zone movement where women in perimenopause & menopause feel heard, validated, and supported. It’s a community of fellow ‘Pausers who learn from experts—and each other—how to master their personal wellness and vitality as they transition into their third act in life looking to alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms that come with it. Known as the “Menopause Educator and Researcher” by her 275,000+ TikTok followers, Andrea is a Nutritionist IN Menopause who is on a mission to normalize the conversation around a still very-much taboo topic.
Some of the great supplements from Morphus include:
Fiberus is an unflavored soluble prebiotic fiber made from guar fiber. Each serving contains 6 grams of fiber that dissolves clearly, quickly, and easily into hot or cold liquid and doesn’t have any taste, texture, or smell. It also won’t clump or thicken. Fiberus helps to keep food moving through the digestive tract, therefore, improving both occasional constipation and occasional diarrhea without excess gas, cramping, or bloating. Fiberus helps to lower the glycemic index of foods and helps to support healthy weight management by reducing hunger. It can also help to improve the absorption of essential minerals.
Menopause symptoms, meet your match. This superstar supplement helps to relieve the hormonal symptoms many women experience during perimenopause and menopause: night sweats,* hot flashes,* weight gain,* increased PMS,* hormonal acne*—you name it. The secret ingredient is premium-grade DIM: a plant nutrient that helps the body metabolize excess estrogen.
Pycnogenol® is one of the most impressive plant-based supplements in our collection. Derived from the bark of the French maritime pine tree, Pycnogenol® is one of the most studied ingredients in the world. We’re talking 40 years of research, 160 clinical studies using 12,000 subjects, and 450 scientific publications. All to better understand how this incredible plant can soothe a never ending list of perimenopause and menopause symptoms. Pycnogenol® has been shown to help with hot flashes, digestive issues, irritability, concentration, anxiety, headaches, joint and muscle pain, bloating, fatigue, brittle nails, and menstrual problems.* We personally take Pycnogenol® daily and consider it a menopause must-have.
