Some women will say that menopause is a natural experience and quite enjoyable. Most women will not agree. The symptoms of menopause can be confusing and difficult for both women and everyone around them. Diet and exercise can help women ease them into the next stage of their life and it really does make a difference.
Many women go through menopause without even knowing or understanding what is going on with their bodies. The number of eggs in womenâ€™s ovaries decreases and estrogen and progesterone levels waver and then decline. Periods will be irregular for a while (different with all women) and then stop altogether. Because of the drastic hormone changes, womenâ€™s bodies go through various side effects.
Menopause side effects arenâ€™t your everyday headaches and cramps, but instead women could suffer some serious health effects. Weight is usually redistributed and will go straight to the stomach. This is why an exercise program is encouraged. There is also an increased risk of heart disease and osteoporosis. Consuming extra calcium can help prevent osteoporosis. Cholesterol levels also rise in many women.
Symptoms of menopause that most women can expect to experience, whether mild or severe, include hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, mood swings, frequent urination, vaginal dryness, and even depression in some cases. There are conventional medications that can be taken to boost your estrogen levels and help minimize symptoms. One of the best ways to enjoy a healthy, happy menopause lifestyle is by eating a nutritious and healthy diet.

Admittedly, I simply love aromatherapy.Â If you are not aware of the term or have never experienced aromatherapy, it is the art and science of using plant essential oils in the treatment of mind, body and spirit.Â You may have experienced aromatherapy during a massage when the massage therapist used various oils to sooth and massage your body.
The inhalation of the oils during the treatment can have a very relaxing and mellow effect on your mind and on your body.Â When the oils are used correctly there is no problem relative to safety; however, if you are unsure of an oilâ€™s properties you should do your research or check with a holistic practitioner. However, you do not need a prescription nor do you need to see a doctor prior to using the treatment.

Over the years we have heard and probably read a lot about how soy can help lessen the discomfort of menopausal symptoms.
Honestly, Iâ€™ve never tried soy for aiding in relieving menopausal dreads, but continue to read a lot about the potential benefits. Nonetheless I just read some information on how soy protein can bring about a solution, so I want to pass the insight on to you.
From my reading Iâ€™ve read that 2 or 3 teaspoons of soy protein in a womenâ€™s daily diet can ease the discomfort and distressed feelings brought about by hot flashes.
