Nutritious Diet: What and when you eat is very important. Getting the right balance of nutrients vitamins and minerals as well as balancing blood sugar levels is important and will help balance your hormones. If you are suffering from hot flushes make a note of any foods especially sugar or alcohol that may be a trigger. If you feel like you would like specific information about nutrition get in touch and I can recommend an excellent nutritionist.
Sleep: Women can suffer with night sweats, there are lots of things of things on the market with "cool technology' fabrics that can all help to keep you cool at night. Try to keep a good sleep pattern and watch your intake of alcohol it may help you feel relax but it plays havoc with your sleep hormones and adrenal glands.
Mental Health Support: Sometimes the menopause can increase symptoms of depression or anxiety. Remember you are not alone, all women will go through the menopause at some stage of their life so there are lots of other women as well as professionals out there to talk to.
Exercise: As hormone levels change you are at risk of developing osteoporosis. It is important to do regular weight bearing and light resistance exercise every week. This can be walking, running dancing. Exercise can also help to improve your mental health and sleep, so find something you enjoy. If you would like me to recommend a Pilates and fitness teacher get in touch.
Brain Fog: Women often complain of brain fog as a symptom of menopause. Again this can be compounded by stress and difficulty sleeping. Craniosacral therapy can help to calm the nervous system, relieve tension through the head and improve the flow of cerebral spinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. This can help to balance hormones, improve sleep and mental focus.
Hormone Replacement Therapy: I am not a Doctor and have little knowledge about HRT. If you feel you need to speak to a doctor or nurse about HRT and whether it can benefit you, make an appointment at your surgery.
