Is There a Natural Remedy for Menopause? 3 Treatment Options That Work

109

Menopause denotes the end of a woman’s menstrual cycle. It’s a natural part of aging that occurs when the ovaries stop producing the estrogen and progesterone hormones. So, if a woman has not had her period for more than 12 consecutive months, she may be menopausal. To mark the occurrence, women can expect this change usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.

Menopause can be a tough time for women because it causes the body to go through several changes both physically and mentally. Some individuals experience physical symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and a reduced sex drive. It can also lead to a change in mental status that can lead to anxiety, irritability, and other changes in mood.

Many symptoms associated with menopause begin during perimenopause, which is the gradual transitional phase into menopause. This transition period can last for eight to 10 years.

Some severe symptoms require medical treatment, but a number of symptoms can be managed naturally, using home remedies, lifestyle changes, and alternative approaches. Here are three natural treatment options for managing menopause symptoms.

Diet Changes

According to research conducted by Harvard Women’s Health Watch, certain elements of diet might delay—or hasten—the onset of menopause. There is also ample evidence that adopting a healthy eating pattern—including consuming plenty of oily fish and legumes—is a good strategy, whether you’re looking for better health or a later menopausal start.

Consequently, a number of dietary factors and supplements have been suggested to relieve symptoms of the menopause. Women can manage symptoms that are caused by changing levels of hormones in their bodies by maintaining a healthy diet and making smart overall food choices.

Food with high levels of phytoestrogen, which is plant-derived estrogen-like, soybean, tofu, flaxseeds, beans, etc., can help to balance hormones if eaten in moderation. Additionally, there are some menopause supplements on the market that can help ease the pain and other uncomfortable conditions of menopause. Even though the effects of such supplements are promising, it’s best to talk to your doctor before starting supplements as their effectiveness varies for every woman.

Exercise

The benefits of exercise are well-known, but it is especially beneficial in managing symptoms of menopause. While it is hard to imagine wanting to exercise during such a stressful time, it is essential to have any sort of regular physical activity because it can make many symptoms such as weight gain, sleep disturbances, and hot flashes more bearable.

Exercise can also help with depression and anxiety. Being physically active is also good for your bone health and it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, both of which accelerate after menopause begins. According to NCBI, women should aim to follow two hours and 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity each week.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound that occurs in cannabis plants; however, it doesn’t trigger a “high” or alter consciousness. As the world comes to a better understanding of the therapeutic and functional side of cannabis, it is being increasingly used to relieve some prominent symptoms of menopause.

According to an article published by Harvard Medical School, CBD helps address anxiety and mood swings associated with menopause. Insomnia and restless sleep are other problematic symptoms and the studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep. Many strains are excellent sleep aids and even help ease the pain. To learn more about different types and ways to ingest CBD, women can explore sites such as Bloom and Oil to read reviews and get guidance about health choices.

In the end, menopause—although sometimes unpleasant—is one of the most normal changes that a woman’s body will go through in her lifetime. The symptoms shouldn’t be alarming, and with some simple health changes, the transition into later life can be smooth.
