Most women who are going through a troublesome menopause have to take estrogen pills, which could be dangerous. Read on to know how to treat menopause symptoms naturally.
It should be kept in mind that the symptoms of menopause will not be cured, if you starve yourself and survive only on tea or coffee. In fact, the more you take tea or coffee in a day the more the symptoms will aggravate. Thus, include as many fruits and salads in your diet as possible and cut down on coffee and tea. Also, needless to say, completely cut out alcohol from your routine.
Be sure to consult a gynaecologist about the overall effects of menopause on a woman’s body and mind, so that you are prepared for what is to come. Also, follow what your gynaecologist says to the T. In addition, since the gynaecologist has come across many cases, which might be similar to yours, she will be in a better position to understand what you are going through, instead of a family member.
It is always better to have a friend circle or support group that will help you overcome the symptoms or, at least, help you forget them by doing stuff that you like. Also, your friends, especially if they are of the same age group as you, will be able to identify with you as well. However, be careful not to fall in the company of women who are heavy drinkers or who like to drown their sorrows in the spirits! Since you need to keep away from alcohol altogether, it would do you good not to let anyone else’s bad habits rub on to you.
Sweat It Out!
The best way to get over the symptoms of menopause, without the use of any medication or estrogen pills, is to start on a new workout regimen. By that, one doesn’t mean a long, leisurely walk; it means sweating it out, either in the gymnasium or on an hour long jogging session.
It is important to spend some time with yourself every once in a while – just to reflect on your day or your life. It would do you good to spend at least half an hour of your day on a yoga and deep breathing session to relax your mind and body.
