Power, energy and freedom! These are supposed to be the rewards of menopause.
An informed woman can improve her physical health and appearance, as well as maximize her energy and improve her quality of life, regardless of her age. Every woman has a different reaction to the hormonal changes that take place in the body during menopause.
However, weight-bearing exercise and a more active lifestyle, lots of relaxation, a healthy diet and supplements, and a good natural diet provide a healthy framework that should last well beyond the years of menopause. Some experts might claim that menopause has been "medicalized".
Starting hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can sometimes be wonderful - hot flashes stop, sleep patterns, and mood swings improve. However, we are still exploring aspects of clinical safety and long-term use. There is still confusion and disagreement about HRT, but the benefits for women who are truly low in estrogen after menopause cannot be denied.
These benefits lie in the ability of this important female hormone to relieve vaginal dryness, mood swings, and stop hot flashes. High levels of stress tend to make hot flashes worse.
Every year, the skin's biochemical processes slow down a bit due to free radical damage, internal and external pollution, and aging. Hydrating your skin by maintaining adequate hydration ensures the flexibility of the skin structure, and this must be supported by an increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Scaly skin is a common sign of omega-3 deficiency.
Hair care is important and hair structure and follicle health are also supported by fatty acids found in oily fish like tuna and salmon or in supplements. Our bodies need more support for moisture as we age. Life is about give and take, and the same applies to menopause.
There are swings and roundabouts. What you lose in youth and beauty you gain with the wisdom of your years and your freedom.
