Menopause is a turning point in a woman’s life. However not much is talked about it. Neither are we told how to tackle this phase of life and how to effectively pass this off. Thankfully, we have some home remedies and natural treatments at your disposal that helps us transition into the post menopausal phase with ease. These are:
- Get rid of symptoms with proper nutrition
One of the best ways to get rid of the symptoms of menopause is to get proper nutrition. You will have to make sure that your diet is a balanced one. Now we know a lot of women don’t take care of themselves. The late 30s can be a trying time with your kids growing to become teenagers – you have a lot on your plate. Even single ladies are known to neglect themselves to some extent. To remain fit during your menopause you will have to make sure that you take the right diet.
Reduce consumption of refined sugar and carbohydrates and load up on vitamins, minerals and lots of protein. You will sail through.
- Herbs that compensate for the hormones
You can also go with herbs that compensate for the loss of hormones inside your body. Hormone change is the reason you are having all these mood swings and fluctuations in body temperature. With the help of right herbs such as sage, you will be able to see a lot of physical comfort. Also your body will transition smoothly without causing you any outward problem.
The herbs are able to do this because they resemble our hormones in molecular structure. Plus, they have no side effects. They are safe. Hence, they are the best.
- Exercise and beat the weight gain
Not only is your hormone fluctuating, but because of the hormonal fluctuation you are also gaining weight rapidly. This can be solved by exercise. The additional plus point is, by moving around, and doing a couple of workouts you will also balance the estrogen and progesterone ratio. This might actually buy you some time for the menopause to occur. There is no better way to get yourself in shape again than to exercise. Plus, it will make sure that your hormones are proper and healthy too.
- Keep your emotions in check
A lot of time women go through a lot of turmoil simply because it is a change and not so much because anything is happening to them. If you are feeling that your body is comfortable but the thought of menopause is causing you agony, then you have to take care. The stress can worsen the situation. Start keeping a journal of your feelings or write a blog. It will help you cope better and will give an outlet to your stress.
- Do gentle workouts
Sometimes our adrenal glands are overworked because of the cortisol – which happens again because of the stress. If this happens to you too, then go with light exercises. Your body will thank you for it.
