Perimenopause and Menopause - Let's have a talk

Ladies, are you feeling the heat of perimenopause or the struggles of menopause? Well, you're not alone. As women, the forties can be a battleground for our sense of equanimity, with declining egg supply, dropping progesterone, and increasing cravings. The challenges are real, and the external factors don't make it any easier.

Our fast-paced, digital culture, toxin overload, and a healthcare system that often treats symptoms rather than root causes contribute to the rise of hormonal chaos. It's common to see women prescribed antidepressants instead of addressing hormone imbalances directly.

But there's hope!

In the ten years leading up to menopause and beyond, hormonal imbalances can wreak havoc on your life. The decline in progesterone, cortisol, and insulin can lead to stress, poor food choices, and disrupted sleep. It's a vicious cycle that affects your well-being.

The external factors, including endocrine disruptors in our environment, are also playing a significant role. Toxins interfere with hormone production, leading to health issues. Thyroid disease is on the rise due to exposure to environmental toxins, particularly flame retardants found in our furniture.

But fear not!

Natural solutions exist to rebalance your hormones and reclaim your sanity. For perimenopause, consider chasteberry and St. John's wort to raise progesterone levels and improve mood. Addressing weight concerns involves maintaining a balanced diet, berberine supplementation, and intermittent fasting.

As you transition into menopause, paced breathing, maca, and acupuncture are proven remedies for symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. These natural approaches can make a significant difference, providing relief without resorting to synthetic drugs.

Remember, knowledge is power.

By taking care of your hormones—progesterone, cortisol, and insulin—you can navigate perimenopause and ease into menopause with balance and grace. Don't let hormonal imbalances dictate your well-being. Embrace natural solutions, and let's face this phase together! Your journey to hormonal harmony starts now.
