Menopause is a time of transition that, for many women, includes uncomfortable symptoms – from hot flashes to weight gain. There are a number of ways that women can try to manage the symptoms of menopause, however most symptoms are seen as inevitable – but not anymore.
Dr. Anna Cabeca doesn’t believe you have to experience menopause the same way everyone else does. Her Magic Menopause program empowers women to take control of their health and change the way they experience menopause.
Before jumping into Dr. Anna Cabeca’s Magic Menopause Program, it’s important to know what menopause really is. Menopause is a natural, normal biological process that every woman will go through as she ages. Menopause is a phase that can include any of the changes a woman may experience just before or after her menstruation stops. Menopause marks the end of a woman’s menstrual cycle and therefore, the end of her reproductive period.
Every woman is born with a limited number of eggs which are stored in the ovaries. The ovaries also produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which control both menstruation and ovulation. Menopause occurs when the ovaries stop releasing an egg every month, therefore stopping the menstruation and ovulation processes. During this time, a woman may experience a variety of changes, including hot flashes, loss of bone density, and weight gain, that can have a significant impact on her life.
During menopause, a woman’s body is adjusting to new hormone levels. During this transition, women may experience a wide range of symptoms including vaginal dryness, hot flashes, and difficulty sleeping. Dr. Anna Cabeca’s program is designed to help you through menopause with grace and comfort. These signs and symptoms are common in the months or years leading up to menopause:
Every woman is unique. It’s important to keep in mind that symptoms may be different for every woman, including changes in menstruation. Women will likely experience some irregularity in their periods before they come to a complete stop.
Perimenopause is the period when a woman's hormone levels and menstrual periods become irregular. During this stage, it’s normal and common for women to skip periods. Usually, periods will skip for a month or two and then return. Periods may also take on shorter cycles, making them closer together. However, despite irregular periods, it is possible to get pregnant during this time.

Dr. Anna Cabeca’s Magic Menopause program empowers women by teaching them how to overcome the symptoms of menopause through managing nutrients, hormone therapy, stress relief, and more. After filling out the intake form, recording and submitting your measurements (not fun, but it will help you track your progress!) and joining the online Magic Menopause Facebook community, you’re ready to get started!
Dr. Cabeca’s Magic Menopause program is seven weeks long and involves learning about getting in touch with your body and discovering what it’s going through during menopause. You will also discover what Dr. Anna Cabeca refers to as the “Keto-Green” or “Keto-Alkaline” diet, what alkaline means, and how it affects the body. This section of the program will teach you a bit about nutrients and how to eat to minimize your menopause symptoms. Her Keto-Alkaline diet will optimize insulin, cortisol, and other hormone levels to help you experience fewer menopause symptoms, including hot flashes. This diet may help you get rid of hot flashes altogether or make them shorter and less intense.
Dr. Anna Cabeca’s Keto-Green (or keto-alkaline) diet is modifying your diet to keep your urinary pH stay at an optimal “alkaline” level, which is usually about 7 or slightly above. A urine pH that is more alkaline than acidic works to give you more energy, balance your hormones, and help you feel your best. It has also been tied to lower rates of cancer, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic diseases.
In her Magic Menopause program, clients see a 50% or more reduction in hot flashes within the first two weeks of following a keto-green diet. This diet encourages low-cab alkaline vegetables, and discourages consuming acid-promoting foods including processed foods, white sugar, grains, white flour, and caffeine.
The Keto-Alkaline Diet will also improve brain function. Dr. Anna Cabeca says that when glucose is unable to get to the brain, hot flashes increase while brain health plummets. A Keto-Alkaline Diet allows ketones to replace glucose in your brain and other tissues, ultimately improving brain health and menopause symptoms. The keto-alkaline diet will help you burn fat by optimizing your hunger-regulating hormones like leptin and insulin. It also reduces the hunger hormone ghrelin and eliminates cravings so you can lose weight and forget about yo-yo dieting.
Looking for a boost in your sex drive? A healthy Keto-Alkaline diet rich in fat can improve fat-soluble vitamin absorption. This includes vitamin D, which is a precursor for your sex hormones. Dr. Cabeca’s diet will also help you improve your quality of sleep and stabilize your energy levels. If you’re going through menopause, then you probably know that it can leave you feeling tired and wiped out. The Keto-Alkaline Diet can help you maintain steady energy levels throughout the day as healthy fats provide your body with an efficient energy source to maintain healthy hormone levels. The Diet also help balance blood sugar levels while optimizing hormones like serotonin, melatonin, and cortisol to improve sleep.
Finally, Dr. Anna Cabeca’s Keto-Alkaline Diet lowers inflammation. It combines healthy anti-inflammatory fats with rich alkalizing foods and fasting, which can lead to a reduction of joint pain, back pain, and any other inflammatory conditions.
Dr. Cabeca also focuses on hormone imbalances, caused by endocrine disruptors. Hormone imbalances lead to symptoms that serve a purpose – to bring said imbalance to our attention. Hormonal shifts can happen from your mid-30s onward. Symptoms of hormonal changes include premenstrual syndrome, uterine fibroids, hair loss, hot flashes, breast cysts, sleeplessness, night sweats, waking up in the middle of the night, and brain fog. Dr. Cabeca says that brain fog can actually precipitate dementia and is a huge problem in perimenopause.
Dr. Cabeca believes that even if our environment is changing, our body hasn’t changed and there are a number of treatments that target menopausal symptoms. For example, progesterone treatment can cure the conditions of progesterone deficiency, which includes vaginal dryness.Through her program, women can restore mental clarity, find a new appreciation for life, and unlock a higher level of spirituality.
The Magic Menopause program might sound too good to be true, however her program is backed by science, as well as her own experience.
