Whether it’s small changes in your lifestyle or beginning a new regimen of natural herbs, we’ve got explanations for all the ways you can live a happier life during menopause.
It has been scientifically proven that the consumption of caffeine will increase the frequency and severity of hot flashes. Coffee will also have a negative impact on symptoms like fatigue and other sleeping problems, because it provides ‘quick fixes’ rather than long-term solutions. It causes a rise in energy levels momentarily and increases alertness, but then will cause the dips in energy levels to be made worse, affecting your health and mental state. Caffeine also impacts sleeping patterns hugely. Reactions with the nervous system will also heighten the intensity of mood swings, bringing them on more regularly.
A close second to dieting, exercising can have a positive effect on multiple body systems. Working out at least three or four times a week can lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, and weight gain. Weight-bearing activities will also help ward off osteoporosis. And those are just the physical advantages. Exercising can also release valuable serotonin in the brain, a chemical which chases away stress and anxiety.
Taking phyto-estrogenic herbs
Herbal remedies to relieve women of menopause come in several varieties, usually categorized by how they work. Phyto-estrogenic herbs like Wild Yam are so named because they introduce the plant version of the hormone estrogen to the body. However, it’s important to be cautious with phyto-estrogenic herbs. While this can solve the problem of low estrogen levels for most women, taking these herbs for an extended period of time can also render the body unable to produce its own estrogen.
Taking non-estrogenic herbs
Because phyto-estrogenic herbs can only be taken for short-term relief, non-estrogenic herbs like Maca root are preferable to phyto-estrogenic herbs. This type of plant, when taken as a menopause remedy, encourages the body to produce more of its own estrogen.
Working soy into your diet
Incorporating soy into your diet may be a possible solution to menopause problems because soy also contains phytoestrogens. However, as with phyto-estrogenic herbs, it’s important to limit the amount of soy that you eat or drink and not to use soy for long-term menopausal relief.
