When I was younger I heard about menopause it was described to me by my mother, “as the worst part of a woman’s life, nothing for you to worry about until your were in your fifties.” Today I know that you should prepare for peri-menopause and menopause in your mid to late thirties. It wasn’t until my early forties when I was introduced to Suzanne Somers, and read her amazing books that inspired me to learn more about this ageing process and the importance of acting earlier than later.
Today, I’m living proof, at 53 years young that if you have a good understanding of this passage, it can become your most powerful weapon against fighting their negative symptoms .
For those of you who know little about peri-menopause, let me explain the passage.
Women start peri-menopause at different ages, and today, because of all the chemicals in the environment, the food we eat, and the topical products we use on our skin, it can start as early as in our thirties. Peri-menopause is the interval in which a woman’s body makes a natural shift from regular cycles of ovulation and menstruation toward permanent infertility, or menopause. Peri- menopause ends the first year after menopause (when a woman has gone 12 months without having her period).
For many years we have been lead to believe that this passage is about deterioration and despair, that it is just part of being a woman, so suck it up. But that’s the old-fashioned way of thinking. If you learn to balance your hormones early, you can ‘nip in the bud’ many if not all the negative problems associated with peri-menopause, so they don’t happen.
Symptoms of peri-menopause and menopause can be:
- Changes in your menstrual cycle, longer or shorter periods, heavier or lighter periods, missed periods and stopped Period
- Breast tenderness
- Hot Flashes (sudden rush of heat from your chest to your head)
- Night sweats (hot flashes that happen while you sleep)
- Vaginal dryness
- Low libido
- Trouble sleeping
- Mood changes (mood swings, depression, irritability)
- Urinary urgency (pressing need to urinate more frequently)
- Increased body fat, particularly around the waist
- Weight Gain
- and more as every women is unique and individual
Just reading about all these symptoms freaks me out, who would want to put up with all that or with that person? Its also not living a good quality life for you or those close to you. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer from any of the above symptoms, and it begins with you learning how to balance your declining hormones. Every hormone is critical, and having just one that is low or missing will throw off your entire system, and eventually turns into nasty peri-menopause and menopause symptoms.
Today I am enjoying menopause as a fit, healthy sexy woman, and you can too.
