Are you managing your symptoms, or are they managing you?
Are you dealing with hot flashes, irritability, night sweats, weight gain, insomnia, and mood swings? Well, chances are, you’re not alone. You may be in the early stages called perimenopause experiencing irregular periods and uncomfortable PMS.
Regardless of where you are, you’re probably ready to be done with it all.
Unfortunately, when you’re going through menopause, you’re at a higher risk for other conditions such as thyroid problems, heart disease, and autoimmune disease.
Menopause does not have to be a death sentence for women. A lot of the symptoms are worsened by our Western, fast-paced lifestyle. Interestingly enough, many women from third world countries do not suffer from the same problems.
Menopause often occurs when women are raising teenagers, working on their careers, and possibly taking care of their aging parents. Needless to say, this can add even more fuel to the already roaring fire.
It can be very challenging when you’re trying to figure out why you feel out of sorts. Sometimes, you’re not actually sick, but you just don’t feel right.It might be that you’re sluggish with no energy and can’t seem to lose stubborn weight. Or, maybe, you’re always run down, so you keep catching everyone’s cold or flu bug.
The typical way to get to the bottom of your problems is to go through a battery of test which are often trial and error. You may be prescribed a host of medications that may or may not work. You may even be told that the symptoms that are plaguing you are all in your head. At this point many people throw up their hands and resign themselves to the fact that, this is as good as it gets.
You may have even heard comments like, “This is just part of getting older” or, “This is perfectly normal for women your age”. The fact is that most of the symptoms we struggle with are not so much age-related as they are totally about what we put in our mouths.
