More About the Menopause and Monthly Cycles...
For many women, it is not the fear of (for example) osteoporosis or heart disease that is most concerning about the menopause, but rather how to cope with what can be the debilitating symptoms that affect their daily lives as a result - most typically hot flashes, tiredness, headaches, irritability, insomnia and even depression.
The menopause years can therefore often be a difficult time for ladies, as they can experience a combination of any of those unpleasant symptoms. The traditional remedy prescribed by doctors has been HRT, but that's now being actively discouraged on a wide scale due to the increased risk of serious health conditions.
Younger women can also experience hormonal imbalances, which can result in difficult or irregular monthly cycles, as well as the emotional and physical symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) / premenstrual tension (PMT).
As such, many younger and older women alike search out a natural approach for ongoing health support, including:
Exercise: according to a study conducted by Lund University of Swedish women, the more vigorous exercise undertaken by women, the less likely they're to suffer from hot flushes.
Diet: Nutrient-intake is especially important during the menopause years and for hormonal balance generally. Essential fats, like Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils, can provide important support in this respect. Similarly, blood sugar levels have a key role to play - recent research at the University of Texas at Austin has proven that if you have 'dysglycemia' (unstable blood sugar levels).
You are more likely to experience fatigue, irritability, depression and hot flushes. One of the most effective ways to regulate this is to eat low-glycemic-load carbohydrates with protein.
Natural vitamins and supplements: Vitamins C and E, soya, isoflavones, red clover, black cohosh, St John's wort and dong quai are just a few of the various natural remedies that have undergone studies for their potential effects on menopause symptoms. A combination of these herbs and nutrients, alongside appropriate diet and lifestyle changes, may provide useful support to women during the menopause or during irregular monthly cycles.
