Menopause: Don’t Sweat It!

 

Contrary to popular belief, women can go through menopause gracefully! Imagine how nice it would be if you didn’t have hot flashes, interrupted sleep, weight gain, or irritability. Hormonal symptoms are just that, symptoms. It is your body’s way of telling you that something is not well, and your body is not processing hormones as it is designed. Menopause related to estrogen dominance results in women from use of synthetic hormones or from small exposures over time to estrogen-like compounds (fuels, plastics, pesticides, and pollutants). Estrogen dominance is also related to low progesterone levels, fibrous breast and tissues, PMS symptoms, and weight gain on the thighs and hips.

Natural nutriceutical treatments support the body and help rid of the estrogen; as a result progesterone levels increase! Studies showed dramatic improvement in hormone levels in 2 months and 72% improvement in hot flashes over 3 months (that is comparable to medical treatment without the side effects!) Most hormonal treatments are designed to mask symptoms or make the body more heavily burdened with artificial hormones. Hormone replacement therapies are also linked with causing hormonal cancers! Take a natural approach and go through menopause as body was designed, gracefully.
