Living with the menopause xxx

June 25, 2017

For those of us ladies who are experiencing symptoms of the menopause, isn’t it great to hear and see so much in the media on this subject being discussed by well known celebrities like Zoe Ball and Carol Vorderman?

 

It has been one of those taboo subjects that generally has ‘not been spoken about’. For a woman to suddenly start getting one or more of the most common symptoms, for example:-mood changes, hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, insomnia, anxiety, depression it can be worrying not only for her but also their nearest and dearest who can sometimes see quite a change in the person and are not sure how to help.

 

There is also some confusion for women whether to take natural remedies or hormone replacement therapy (HRT). A discussion with a Gp can be helpful however a report by the British Menopause Society found that many women felt too embarrassed to discuss their symptoms with their Gp and are also concerned regarding risks associated with HRT.

 

Dr Marilyn Glenville, a women’s health expert has written a lot on the subject of the menopause and in her book ‘New Natural Alternatives to HRT’, she discusses that with the right lifestyle, diet nutrition and the right tools, a woman’s body can adapt to the menopause in a natural way.

 

Tryptophan, which is an essential amino acid obtained through food is also thought to help alleviate some symptoms. This can be found in turkey and also pumpkin seeds.  Drinks containing pumpkin seeds are made by Nature Naturals, a UK based company-naturesnaturals.co.uk

 

Ladies, if we can generally take care of ourselves holistically the better our chances of feeling in optimum health especially when going through the menopause. Thanks to Zoe and Carol for being so open in their discussion about how the menopause is affecting them. Keeeeep talking!!

 

Love and best wishes,
