Forget Hormone Replacement Therapy – Here are Natural Menopause Treatments That Will Work!
It was in the 1980s that Hormone Replacement Therapy was introduced to the public and the introduction of this solution to menopause was most welcome during a time when the role of the female in society was breaking boundaries, one at a time. However, now women are turning to more natural remedies to soothe the symptoms of menopause, and they are proving to be rather effective, all without the side effects of HRT!
Take Control Of Your Stress
It may sound like it is easier said than done, but it is all a matter of making up your mind not to take on the negative effects of stress in your life. Reduce your stressors where possible, by not procrastinating and by avoiding stressful situations or quitting unnecessary commitments if you feel overwhelmed. For those stressors that have to remain, you can learn to control the effect that they have over you and your mood by practicing yoga, breathing exercises, and by taking up a hobby or finding what truly relaxes you. Do everything in your power not to allow stress to grab a hold of you – even if it means painting your home or office in soothing colors!
Take Up Regular Exercise
We aren’t talking about squeezing in your fitness routine when you ‘find a chance’ because we all know that that doesn’t happen. We’re talking about regular workouts that are a part of your week 3 or 4 times. Being more active in general is also great, like cleaning up your home or doing some DIY work on the house. Anything that gets your heart rate up is what we’re looking at! The release of endorphins does wonders for your mood, too, keeping you feeling great through this difficult menopausal period!
A Clean Diet
We all need food to fuel us for our daily activities, but the wrong types of foods can badly influence your body’s chemical makeup and the hormone balance in your body can be affected by this. Hormones are responsible for a whole lot more than just menopause and reproductive health – they are important for focus, for your vascular system and for many other functions. If you would like to know which foods to place a specific focus on to help alleviate symptoms of menopause, look at phytoestrogenic foods like tofu, soybeans, wheat, rice bran, and yams. Increase your fiber intake and also increase your consumption of foods high in Omega fatty acids.
Estrogen is a hormone involved in many key processes that maintain the health of your body and mind. Menopause supplements function by helping normalize vitamin and mineral levels to help you manage the symptoms of menopause much better. Herbal based supplements that have been under the most review are red clover, maca, black cohosh, St. John’s Wort and chaste berry. Of course, t goes without saying that it is advisable not to undergo any supplement treatment without consulting with your general practitioner first, which is especially true if you happen to be on any other kind of treatment for any other condition.
Relaxation, rest and plenty of sleep is ideal for helping you focus better during menopause and the same rings true for a relaxing bath or a massage with essential oils. Dim the lights and sit back, just soaking up the peace! If a good book brings you peace of mind, dive into the covers and flip some page with a soothing cup of herbal tea! Never underestimate the power of relaxation! This is especially important if you happen to have a stressful job or many stressors you are exposed to throughout the day.
There is no woman on earth who will tell you that menopause is an easy phase to get through, but fortunately, there have been countless women who have gone through it before us who know what works and what doesn’t. This is good news because we don’t have to be guinea pigs – of course, that’s if there isn’t any new innovative medicine or therapy that we’re trying out which wouldn’t necessarily be the case if you’ve made up your mind to undergo the natural method! Menopause is a natural and completely normal change in the body – welcome it, embrace it, and don’t fight it! You will feel a whole lot better if you simply accept the changes to come and try to manage them as best you can!
