Hi, I am a 57 y.o women. It has been 5 or six years since my last cycle. I still experience hot flashes especially at night usually waking me 3 to 8 times a night every night. I have pain in right thumb, right shoulder, left hip, and frequently feel as though my bones cannot support my weight or no strength while exercising or carrying things.
I eat very clean; with most of my food either organically grown myself or by a local farm for organic beef, eggs & raw milk. ALL foods purchased at grocery store are organic. Generally low carb, I eat no sugar, no flour, limited sprouted grains. Limited alcohol, No medications and no OTC meds. I take D3, probiotics, B12, Triphala, and Milk Thistle. I have been actively trying to lose weight and instead I am steadily gaining. At 50 yo and 5'9", I weighed 150-155 depending on time of day/month. and was pretty steady for 15 years on limited carbs. I now weigh 190 lbs same or more strict eating, 2-3 gym days a week and nothing helps. I am desperate and cannot continue to gain more weight,
