Andrea Donsky knows her menopause supplements

The Hotflash inc podcast is the #1 podcast in Women’s Health on Goodpods and in the top 1.5 percent on Listen Notes. Thank you for making that happen! 

Andrea Donsky is a Canadian nutritionist who turned her own terrible and epic perimenopause into a movement – and a company. Now a Menopause Educator and Researcher with 300,000+ TikTok followers, she is on a mission to change the conversation around perimenopause and menopause.

An entrepreneur with more than 23 years of experience in the health and wellness industry, Andrea hosts the weekly ‘Menopause Reimagined’ podcast, and appears as a menopause expert on television across North America. To date, Andrea has appeared in over 400 TV segments and has been featured on every major network across the U.S and Canada.

Her newest venture, Morphus, (which signifies ‘metamorphosis’ + ‘us’ as a community), empowers women over the age of 35 to “Reimagine Menopause” as a journey of empowerment so they feel heard, supported, and validated. Morphus empowers women to take control of their symptoms and health with nutrition, resources, and science-backed supplements. 

Andrea and her business partner Randy are also my partners in the Menopause Shift Summit, which is returning next year!
