Description:
Menopause marks the end of menstruation. Menopause may occur between the ages of 35 to 60, but most women stop menstruating in their mid-forties to early fifties. The general readjustment of the body's endocrine balance leads to different symptoms, which are known as the side effects of menopause. The symptoms are caused by estrogen dominance in the body as progesterone production declines in the years leading up to this change. Hormonal changes also disrupt the delicate acid/alkaline balance of the vagina, which can lead to increased susceptibility to yeast and bacterial infections.

Symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Mood changes
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Heart palpitations
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Suggestions:

  • Walking half an hour at the same time each day stimulates the body's energies and establishes a sense of calm.
  • Wear cool and comfortable clothing.
  • Eat a balanced and healthy diet.
  • Drink plenty of water each day.
