Menopause means "change of life"
and it is the transitional change that occurs when a woman's menstrual
Menopause generally occurs between
the ages of 45 and 50, as a result of failure of oestrogen and progesterone
production by the ovaries.
The symptoms are hot flushes, sweats,
itching, vaginal dryness, skin problems, aches and pains, possible
weight gain and mental problems such as: tearfulness, depression,
lack of concentration, loss of self-esteem and lowered libido.
In some cultures, such as in Japan,
women rarely suffer from menopausal symptoms. This is thought to
be due to their diet which is high in phyto-oestrogens (plant oestrogens)
provided by foodstuffs such as soya beans and tofu. This blocks
the action of synthetic oestrogens and boosts natural oestrogen
levels enabling women to make the transition much more smoothly.
Tip: diet provides a rich source
of solutions for dealing with symptoms of the Menopause eg.
foods rich in phyto-oestrogens, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamins
B6,D, and E, Phosphorus, and essential fatty acids - as well as
taking appropriate supplements.
Herbal Medicine, Counselling,
Chinese Medicine, Yoga.
