Hot Flushes to Harmonious Hormones
Simple Strategies to Manage Menopause and Perimenopause Naturally
We know that hormone imbalance causes much more than hot flushes.
Many women are suffering the effects of menopause and perimenopause. It affects everyone in different ways with a wide range of symptoms and in varying degrees.
However, menopause is NOT a disease but sometimes it can be viewed in this way.
Once you reach midlife, your body will no longer let you get away with an unhealthy lifestyle. If you arrive at perimenopause being emotionally and nutritionally depleted, you will have more serious symptoms. How you treat your body in the years leading up to perimenopause, will gauge how well you move through menopause.
However, you have the ability to change your health and turn it around, no matter where your starting point is.
The 4 Pillars of Menopause
The only thing that truly ends at this time, is a women’s ability to naturally conceive a child.
Being forgetful, vague, suffering brain fog and having trouble concentrating is a common symptom of menopause because your brain is rewiring itself.
It is also a time when any unresolved issues in your life come to the surface.
This is a time to start planning for the best part of your life. Many women may live more years after menopause than before.
Avoiding processed foods is one of the best strategies for preserving your natural hormones function. Refined carbohydrates and damaged fats can elevate your oestrogen levels – as much as twice of what is normal.
This is a major cause of menopausal symptoms in the first place. Processed foods are also loaded with health-degrading ingredients such as sugar, GE ingredients, trans-fats, processed salt, and other chemical additives.
Lifestyle factors include:
⦁ Stress management
⦁ Getting enough sleep
⦁ Quitting smoking
⦁ Reducing alcohol and caffeine intake
⦁ Drinking enough water
⦁ Reducing your toxic load
The natural design of the body is to produce two hormones, oestrogen (a class of hormones) and progesterone in a precise balance.
During menopause, oestrogen levels decrease to one-half to one-third of pre-menopausal baseline levels. Progesterone levels on the other hand, fall close to zero when ovulation no longer occurs.
A progesterone deficiency can seriously affect bones and is of great concern in the development of osteoporosis. However, osteoporosis can be reversed at any age as progesterone stimulates the growth of new bone tissue.
While supplements cannot replace a healthy diet and lifestyle, taking supplements may help to reduce severity of menopausal symptoms.
Many women are deficient in some extremely important vitamins and minerals, particularly Vitamins B, C, E and D. These vitamins preserve brain function and protect against nerve-cell degeneration. Vegan and strict vegetarian diets can lead to Omega 3 and B12 deficiency.
Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids are also most beneficial nutrients for the brain and overall health.
Some essential oils are believed to have positive effects on Menopause
