The natural physiological processes of perimenopause and menopause are influenced by a variety of elements including genetics, environment, diet, physiology, exercise, and psychology. Any one of these influences may be a source of symptom intensification at this transitory time of declining hormone levels. For not only is the healthy daily functioning and well-being of women affected, but of more concern is the increased risk of osteoporosis and heart disease.
‘Yin’ in Chinese medicine is a classification denoting the cooling, moistening, and nourishing functions and substances of the body, a role that the female hormone Oestrogen normally plays a significant part in. Declining levels of this hormone however creates the common menopausal symptoms of temperature imbalance, poor sleep quality, reduced muscle strength, fatigue, dryness and thirst, mood imbalances, and poor mental focus and clarity. An effective, targeted herbal formulation at this time can support healthy hormonal balance and provide valuable upkeep for healthy body function, while calming and nourishing lifestyle changes can also provide valuable assistance. Key lifestyle changes that have proven benefits include:
• Adjusting lifestyle to increase relaxation time and reduction of stress
• Initiating regular exercise routines especially those of yoga, tai chi, and swimming
• Rethinking smoking, alcohol, and caffeine intake, all of which have a damaging effect on hormonal balance
• Choosing foods low in saturated fat and rich in poly- and mono-unsaturated fats such as olive oil, flaxseed oil, and fish oils
• Letting go of the sugar and salt habit
• Having clean, clear, fresh water to drink on a regular basis.
• Focusing on specific nutrients such as vitamin E, calcium, and lactobacillus acidophilus for improved digestive, bone, and hormone function.
