Natural Relief for Menopausal Anxiety


Worried woman: menopausal anxiety is caused by hormone fluctuations. With all the changes your body is undergoing around the time of menopause, it seems only logical that some stress or anxiety may accompany these changes. Not only do your fluctuating hormones cause anxiety chemically, but the combination of your other menopausal symptoms or fear of them may exacerbate anxiety. For instance, anticipating and fearing the onset of a hot flash in public could arouse feelings of anxiety.

Also, many women are lifelong sufferers of menopausal anxiety, so much so that those feelings become “normal.” They may even forget they have anxiety issues until the symptoms worsen at a time like the onset of menopause. If you or someone you know is going through the menopause transition and experiencing feelings of anxiety as a result, read these tips for natural relief before resorting to another risky and expensive prescription.

Natural Ways to Relieve AnxietyMenopause 3 month 250h

  • Take a Cold Shower

A cold shower can help to reduce anxiety. It may not have been scientifically proven, but plenty of people suffering from anxiety and depression claim that taking a cold shower, and particularly washing the head and hair with cool water, helps them to re-focus and reduces anxiety.

  • Cod Liver Oil Daily

Cod liver oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which help to improve cognition when taken habitually. A study from 2007 linked the consumption of cod liver oil to lower levels of depression and anxiety.

  • Exercise

Exercise releases endorphins and boosts the mood of depressed and anxious people. It has been proven time and time again that exercise releases endorphins and boosts the mood of depressed and anxious people, yet doctors are still weary of “prescribing” exercise.

  • Go Outside

Going outside or getting a new hobby could reduce anxiety. Turn off the television, turn off the computer. Not only does being in front of a screen all day reduce the amount of melatonin in your body, making it difficult for you to get adequate sleep, but being inside all the time deprives you of nature’s natural relaxation-inducing abilities.

  • Get a Hobby

Taking up a simple activity that can help you keep your mind off of whatever may be bothering you can help you avoid anxiety. Reading a book, knitting, and working at a jigsaw puzzle are all inexpensive activities you can do by yourself.

  • Supplement for Menopausal Anxiety

Anxiety can be one of the symptoms of anxiety due to the decline of estrogen levels as women get older. Increase your estrogen levels the natural way with a product like the Manna Menopause Support, packed with phyto-estrogens.

    Wow. Ek is 43 en sukkel vreeslik met angs. Jul artikel maak baie sin. Die advies is baie welkom. Ek weet dat as ek gaan stap of in die tuin is, help dit nogal om die angs te betoom. Ek het weer begin verf en dit kalmeer my ook. Tog ervaar ek dat ‘n aanvulling van jul reeks, bogenoemde meer doeltreffend sal wees. Dankie vir die artikels.

    Baie dankie ek het vanoggend julle insae baie geniet hoe om angs te kan verminder. Ek kan baie gou in angs in gaan dat my hart bons.

    Ek het die Menopause Support gebruik en dit het vir my gloede baie gehelp.

    Ek is 62 en wil net weet? Kan dit bloeddruk verhoog? Kan ek dit nog steeds drink op my ouderdom?

    Was bietjie nie wel nie met my bloeddruk en het al die Dr se medikasies gestop (Arcoxia en Piascledine) die newe effekte het my bloeddruk laat styg en hartkloppings veroorsaak. Gevolglik ek is nou baie versigtig vir enige medikasie.

    Ek kan Manna Menopause support vir almal aanbeveel wat deur Menopause gaan dit werk! Dit het my deur gedra!
