Menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive life, as her eggs run out, her ovaries begin producing less estrogen, and her monthly menstruation cycle ceases.
Menopause is a regular thing that all women go through as they age, although some may experience it sooner due to certain medications, chemotherapy, hysterectomy, and other factors.
The signs and symptoms that women experience when going through menopause include:
While the common symptoms of menopause can be uncomfortable, inconvenient, or even jarring, they can be alleviated naturally by creating harmony within the body. The hormone imbalance caused by menopause is what leads women to experiencing these symptoms, and for those who would prefer not to undergo a hormone replacement therapy in favour of natural therapies, it’s important to pay attention to nutrition and how you’re giving back what your body is struggling to produce naturally.
A few elements you can include into your diet for natural therapies to menopause include:
Foods with soy – Soybeans, soy milk, tofu, and other foods containing soy also contain isoflavones, which help to balance estrogen activity.
Flaxseed – Ground up and in a smoothie or other meal, flaxseed is a near undetectable additive that can really work to balance out your body. The lignin's in flaxseed aid in proper hormone metabolism.
Black cohosh – Black cohosh is one of the most widely known and widely studied natural herb therapies for menopause out there. Not only does it help to alleviate several menopause symptoms, but it’s well known to be an effective remedy for those who experience hot flashes in particular.
B Vitamins – If stress makes your menopause symptoms worse, B vitamins can help the body to better handle stress and thereby ease symptoms.
