Dealing with Perimenopause, Menopause and PostMenopause Naturally

0:00 Menopause Overview: Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. Menopause isn’t always smooth sailing. Many women experience discomfort and struggle with menopausal symptoms. This video discusses natural methods for alleviating menopausal symptoms.

0:17 Hot Flashes and Night Sweats: The most common symptoms among menopausal women are hot flashes and night sweats. Hot flashes are described as a feeling of heat in the upper body, which can also result in red blotches and heavy sweating. A simple way to deal with hot flashes is to keep yourself cool and to dress lightly. Spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine, and stress can all cause hot flashes, so limit your intake of these substances and avoid stress.

0:43 Mood Swings: During perimenopause, women are prone to mood swings. Estrogen plays an important role in the production and regulation of the 4 happy hormones (serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, endorphins). Drastic fluctuations in estrogen levels influence changes in emotion and mood; this could mean low levels increase women’s risk of depression, fatigue, and irritability. Exercise and relaxation techniques are two natural ways to alleviate this symptom. Antidepressants may also help relieve the symptom in some cases.

1:18 Vaginal Problems: A decrease in estrogen during menopause can result in vaginal dryness and irritation. The vaginal tissue thins and becomes dry, resulting in discomfort. The use of a vaginal lubricant or moisturizer is a common remedy for this symptom.

1:34 Osteoporosis: When women reach postmenopause, hormone levels begin to stabilize but at a low rate. Low estrogen contributes to bone loss with an increased risk for osteoporosis. Eating food rich in calcium and vitamin D helps with maintaining bone strength. A good source of Vitamin D is sunlight.

1:52 Herbs and Product: Red Clover, Black Cohosh, and Soy Isoflavones are among the few organic herbs that help with menopause relief. Phytoestrogens, plant-based estrogens, are able to mimic estrogen in the body. They are proven to help alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and bone loss. These and other herbs are concentrated and available in supplements and creams to aid in hormone balance during menopause. But before taking anything, it’s always best to consult with a doctor first.

2:24 Ending: As women undergo menopause, discomfort from symptoms are to be expected because of hormone imbalance. But that doesn’t mean women should continue to suffer. There are numerous health blogs that aim to inform and help menopausal women with what they are experiencing. Visit ours at these sites.
