Menopause

Menopause

Menopause is a natural part of life that every woman will encounter – typically from the age of 48 and potentially lasting for around 4 years. 

The most common symptom, experienced by two-thirds of menopausal women, is hot flushes, often accompanied by night sweats.  However, mood swings, headaches, reduced libido, weight gain and fatigue are also common.

 

Different women will experience a different combination of symptoms, which is why there is no simple answer to the question posed.

 

The menopause happens because of the hormonal changes taking place in the body – culminating in a reduction in the presence of oestrogen.  The impact of these changes manifests in the symptoms above, and changes to diet have been found to be helpful for many women.

Before reaching menopause, there are still a myriad of conditions that millions of women suffer. Frequently we just ‘accept’ that this is how our body is.  But it doesn’t have to be that way. By understanding the influences on hormone balance and how they affect us there are options available to help address everything from PMS, fertility issues, endometriosis, and PCOS.
