OKAY . . . SO LISTEN UP PEOPLE . . . YOU MAY NEED TO KNOW THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!!
Now . . . as a rule ladies. . . we all go through "menopause" at some point in our life.
Some earlier than others . . . and some breeze through it . . . while others are in a living "HELL"
So the question for today is this . . . WHY IS THAT???
Well . . . as we know . . . "menopause" is the time of life when a woman's "ovaries" discontinue producing hormones . . . and menstrual periods "stop".
Now . . . "natural" menopause usually occurs around the age of 50 . . . and when a woman hasn't had a period for 12 months in a row . . . this is "true" menopause.
Okay . . . so what's it really all about???
Well . . . "menopause" causes many changes to the body . . . with the "decreased" production of "estrogen" and "progesterone" in the ovaries . . . at the top of that list.
And with this . . . it can cause symptoms like hot flashes, weight gain, mood changes, chills, sleeping issues, night sweats, headaches, anxiety, dry skin, thinning hair, vaginal dryness, itchy skin, hives, bladder irritation or even urgency to urinate.
And in many cases . . . the body can go into an "early" menopause due to . . .
Chemotherapy or radiation to treat cancer
Surgery that removes an ovary
Family history of early menopause
Or getting your first period before the age of 11
Now . . . when going through "menopause . . . conventional medicine tells us . . . we should do things like . . .
Decrease vaginal discomfort
Get enough sleep
Cool hot flashes by dressing in layers
Drink cool water
Practice relaxation techniques
Strengthen the pelvic floor
And eat a balanced diet
Now . . . treatment may include . . . "hormone therapy" . . . with "estrogen" therapy being the most effective treatment option
Okay . . . so what about "holistic" medicine??? . . . my world . . . well, it telling us to . . .
Eat foods rich in calcium and vitamin D
Maintain a moderate weight
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables
Avoid trigger foods
Drink lots of water
Reduce "refined" sugar and processed foods.
And "herbs" are many times suggestion for their "menopausal" treatment . . . such as "sage" which can help to relieve a range of symptoms including hot flashes and night sweats.
But . . . what if the "SEVERITY" of "MENOPAUSE" was "REALLY connected to something else???
Well . . . let's take tomorrow and discover the possibilities
