Help With Menopause - What You Should Know

In this article I will offer some help for menopause for all the women suffering with hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, the sagging breast and the fatter hips.

Contrary to what the medical establishment would like us to believe, menopause is not a disease. It's a natural transition period to the second cycle of our lives. In third world countries, women go through menopause with minimal symptoms. Why is that? It's mostly due to their lifestyle and plant-based diet as well as regular exercises.

Here are some tips for better help with menopause.

  • Avoid refined carbohydrates (found mostly in white bread, pasta and processed foods). Eating lots of refined carbs sets the body up for weight gain.
  • Eat the right amount of good fats and avoid bad fats. To maintain a healthy production of natural hormones in your body. Healthy fats such as olive oil is liquid a room temperature. The fats that are bad for you are usually solid at room temperature. It's important to get your Omega 3s from eating fish such as herring, tuna, sardines.
  • Eat whole, unprocessed foods such as fresh vegetables and legumes and grains. Vegetables contain dozens of natural cancer fighting ingredients that inhibit the development of cancerous cells.
  • Eat more fiber. This is important. Dietary fiber carries excess estrogen out of the body. Many women are estrogen dominant at menopause. When estrogen is dominant your body cannot burn fat for energy and you put on weight.
  • Drink a lot of clean water. Water helps your body clear away wastes and toxins that if they build up too much can contribute to the development of cancerous cells.

If your symptoms are still severe after changing your diet and exercising regularly, you may have to consult your doctor and take bioidentical hormones for further help with menopause.

Bioidentical hormones are natural to the body as opposed to synthetic hormones that have a lot of terrible side effects such as increased risk of breast cancer. Taking bioidentical progesterone for instance can improve your energy level and stamina, normalize blood sugar levels and help you with depression. It also restores your sex drive and protects against fibrocystic breasts.

In order to have access to bioidentical hormones for help with menopause, you will have to consult a doctor who understands hormonal imbalance. The correct ratio between hormones, particularly estrogen and progesterone is essential for your well being.

It is important to know what your options are for help with menopause..

Hey Maya, I have liked your article. If there is anything that bothers women, one of them is menopause.
