Self Help Guide for Overcoming Menopause

During menopause, hormone levels begin to change. This can cause a variety of symptoms and the degree varies from woman to woman. Usual signs include a change in the bleeding cycle, becoming more irregular as the months progress.

Blood flow also starts to change. One of the most common symptoms is hot flashes.

By definition, hot flashes are a sudden heat flushing over the torso and redness in the face and neck. Some women might even get it while they sleep, and these are referred to as night sweats.

Mood swings and exhaustion are reported by a majority of menopausal women because of the hormone levels shifting. Women going through this get easily worn down, sometimes experiencing major fatigue.

The night sweats only aggravate the situation, making rest even more impossible even at night. Ironically, most women do not lose weight despite the stress their body is experiencing.

They, in fact, gain more weight because fat levels tend to increase as they grow older.

Menopause is a sometimes an unpleasant fact of life. It is a period of aging that has its ups and downs, and millions of women have no choice but to endure it.

This is when your sense of humor comes in handy because you can lower your stress level by looking at the situation as a mere stage in every woman’s life. You may be nearing the menopause, and you are wondering how to protect your heart, bones, and memory in the long term.

There are a couple of things you can do to help you through it. You could just put up with the symptoms or go on a Hormone Replacement Treatment (HRT). If you are not very comfortable with the idea of an HRT, you may want to try some of the many natural and herbal supplements available out in health stores.

Fact is, the most popular treatment for the menopause has been HRT. However, several major international studies have now been aborted due to the increased risk for participants of serious medical conditions such as heart disease, stroke, thrombosis, breast and ovarian cancer, and the like.

Many women are understandably looking for an alternative. The good news is, it is possible to overcome the symptoms of the menopause without resorting to HRT.

Just take into account that menopausal symptoms are not always related to with falling levels of estrogen. Just make sure that you start including a healthy diet rich in phytoestrogens, the use of scientifically based supplements, daily relaxation, and regular exercise in your routine.

The best sources of phytoestrogens are soya products and you need to eat at least 100mg of phytopestrogens a day to help alleviate symptoms. Back this up with multi-vitamins so that you get better results.

More than ever, you need to learn to relax. Exercise helps in alleviating depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

Any activity that puts weight through your bones such as jogging or brisk walking are the best options. They help stimulate the regeneration of bone tissue and reduce calcium loss helping to protect against osteoporosis.

The fact that these options are there for you is extremely good news. There is no substitute for learning to meet your body’s needs especially at the time of the menopause. After all, prevention is better than cure.
