Menopause occurs when a woman’s estrogen levels begin to decline, usually between the age of 45 and 55. Some women begin to experience menopause symptoms in their 30s. The symptoms of menopause might be daunting and something you really don't want to deal with after a life of enduring menstrual pain and mood swings. However, there are a range of naural treatments you can try experimenting with.
Natural remedy for hot flushes
One of the most talked about symptom of the menopause is hot flushes. Hot flushes can occur at any moment, causing facial burning and tingling, and even sweat that drenches your entire body. They can occur at night, interrupting your sleep, resulting in headaches, tiredness, and irritability.
Women around the world for centuries have used black cohosh and sage to provide comfort and relief from hot flushes.
Low mood associated with menopause
The changes in your body associated with the menopause can cause anxiety and depression. St John’s Wort is a herbal remedy known for lifting mood
and is often referred to as a natural antidepressant. It activates serotonin, the "feel good" chemical in the brain, working towards lifting your spirits.
Menopause and exercise
Natural remedies for menopause aren't just limited to taking supplements. Physical activities such as aerobic conditioning or strength training will increase bone density, protecting you against osteoporosis and can keep the hot flushes away for up to 24 hours. Meditation and yoga are also a great way of managing the symptoms of menopause.
Easing vaginal discomfort
Fish oil is recommended as a way of adding essential lubrication to the body, easing joint pain, relieving dry skin and offering some relief from vaginal dryness. However, you may also benefit from using a hormone-free, pH balanced, vaginal moisturiser to relieve your intimate discomfort.
