While many women “sail” through menopause without any major issues, there are also those that experience problems as they move through their menopausal years.
Here are a few tips to help with any challenges you may experience during this time.
***Use non-toxic methods to alleviate any uncomfortable sensations you might experience with menopause. While some women may temporarily encounter power surges (hot flashes), poor quality sleep, moodiness, memory concerns and vaginal dryness, many do not. Be aware that every woman experiences menopause differently.
***Expect freedom, creativity, joy, peace and wisdom! Many women have wonderfully positive menopausal experiences. Sounds like it calls for a Celebration to me!
***Practice good nutrition. In the realm of menopause it is suggested that one consider foods that contain phytoestrogens such as celery, fennel, parsley, soy, nuts, whole grains, apples, and alfalfa. And drink lots of water!
Until next time,
