If you answered, "yes" to two or more of these questions, you may be experiencing the natural event known as menopause.
When all ovarian activity ceases, menstruation ends permanently. A woman has officially entered menopause when the menstrual cycle has not occurred for 12 consecutive months. Due to a decrease in hormone levels, namely estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone, the transition into menopause is often accompanied by uncomfortable physical, mental and emotional changes, such as those mentioned above. Chronic stress and insomnia, poor dietary habits including sugar and caffeine intake, nutrient deficiencies, and lack of exercise can exacerbate the effects of menopause.
When considering options for managing menopausal symptoms, natural approaches such as dietary changes, nutritional supplementation, exercise, and natural hormone replacement should be among your strategies for eliminating the symptoms. Each of these measures will not only improve the health and well-being of the menopausal woman by correcting deficiencies, but they will also reduce the risk of conditions like osteoporosis and heart disease which are often associated with decreased hormone levels.
