Every woman has menopause as a bogeyman of female existence. This is not so much because of its meaning – of the reduction and loss of fertility – but, much more, of the troubles, real, that this stage of life brings us. Menopause are hot but not only!
How Menopause Starts
Suddenly you start to feel queasy, unsteady – suddenly comes the heat, a sweater alone, or else it is the menstruation that increases in volume, releases a multitude of large clots, or perhaps a fibroid appears (of which every woman will have at least once in life). And humor, on a seesaw!
Well, it turns out that menopause is a long phase that starts there around 40, is the truth, and will end only after your body rebalances with the new hormonal levels, 2 years after the end of last menstruation.
That is to say: menstruation begins to fail (for some of us this process starts there at 45, for others, only much later), one fails, one jumps two, fails about 6 months and, when you think that you do not return, you are back. But only when menstruation stops happening for 2 years, then, you will be sure that the boring phase of menopause is over, just look!
HOW TO LIVE THE MENOPAUSE THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY
It is best for you to look at any and all hormonal variation as a normality of “being a woman”. Since we, women, menstruate (from the 9th, 10, 11 years onwards for most of us), we live in the seesaw of hormones. The symptoms that accompany the ups and downs include breasts, belly; Willingness to cry for no reason; Blushing without having why; Increase or loss of hair, blemishes, hair, libido.
The more modern our life, the more urban and remote from nature and its cycles, the more seriously we will suffer the symptoms of the hormonal rise and fall. Agitated liver, headache, irritability, belching, craving for vomiting, unreasonable fatigue, bloating, high blood pressure or abrupt drop, menstrual bleeding, increased menstrual blood volume, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids are some of the most common symptoms of female hormones – estrogen and progesterone.
And in order to be able to experience these disturbing variations with greater serenity, it is best to respect the cycles, that is, their up-and-down.
3 FUNDAMENTAL ATTITUDES FOR YOUR WELFARE
● Rest when necessary: during ovulation, on the eve of menstruation, during menstruation.
● Walk outdoors, stretch or do any exercise, light, that is to your liking.
● Keep the pelvic area warm: do not wear a wet suit, do not sit on a rock or on a cold floor, wear weather-appropriate clothing
These attitudes that I mention are basic to all female existence, at any age or stage of life, and most fundamentally when you enter the menopause.
Here I am talking about menopause as a phase and yes, it is a long phase, which in some cases may last from 10 to 15 years, counting from the onset of the first troubles, there in the forties.
We could divide between premenopausal (the first 10 years in general) and the menopause proper (2 years) but, what bothers us, are real all the scary symptoms that happen to us a whole decade before menstruation fails to turn.
An Unborn Fear
Let’s talk about another symptom, the loss of the “feminine being”.
But, is this true? Will we stop being female just because we are no longer in reproductive age? No, of course!
When we enter premenopausal this fear arises but, it is totally unfounded. The woman loses her ability to reproduce, which is limited to the number of viable eggs that have formed in the uterine phase but does not lose her female characteristics.
As far as this part of the problem is concerned, what I can advise you is that you take care of your self-esteem and do everything you love.
Reaffirm, in your consciousness, the posture “being a woman” other than “being an incubator, procreative, progenitor” – being a woman is a philosophical condition learned from life so cultivate it more and better during this “boring” phase.
Take herbal teas: blackberry, lavender, lavender, rosemary, star anise, jasmine, spearmint and so much more that will help you regulate hormonal (amora), relieving irritability (lavender, jasmine), maintaining calm, Lavender), in the irritation of the stomach (mint).
Fragrance Baths: Petals of white rose, rosemary, and honey are what helped me the most. The smell baths, in this case, are meant to relax you and make you feel better about yourself.
Take magnesium: Magnesium chloride diluted in pure water, magnesium salt in the bathtub or even magnesium in capsules in phytotherapeutic dosages is highly recommended for this phase. It will help you in water retention and even more in regulation Of cardiac function, one of the postmenopausal female terrors because of the estrogenic overload in our body.
Menopause, after all, is just one of the stages of life through which women are passing, and it may be better, more peaceful and milder than what we hear about. It turns out that the difference lies entirely in your attitude of accepting life
