I have always had an interest in how the human body works, so it was natural for me to study life sciences when I went to Massey University in the late 1970’s. I ended up doing a double major in physiology (how the body works) and biochemistry honours (how the cells work). I spent time in pharmaceutical companies (Glaxo and Douglas) developing medicines and learning how to make them. But the world of pharmaceuticals was changing as people got more and more interested in natural solutions to health, and on maintaining wellness rather than treating illness. I did a diploma in nutrition and decided to start formulating natural products, supplements, and skincare. in 2012, when I was working on a product for menopause, I went to Vitafoods Asia conference in Hong Kong where I came across EstroG-100™. This was an amazing find – it appeared to overcome all the safety issues of hormone replacement therapy, black cohosh, or soy isoflavones but with very strong clinical evidence of effectiveness. I am now working on helping women with other health and wellness issues with Meno-Me
