Menopause and Perimenopause
Hot flashes, night sweats, brain fog, mood swings, it’s all just part of getting older, right? WRONG!
Some women sail into menopause without an issue, this is a way that it should be! However, in our society, many women need extra support to get through. If your body is depleted in the years leading into perimenopause due to sleep deprivation, multiple pregnancies, demanding lifestyles, and nutrient depletion your body may lack what it needs to make enough hormone to prevent symptoms once your hormones start to fluctuate. In addition, if you have had a hysterectomy (with or without removal of ovaries) you may need hormonal support since this often results in abrupt hormone drop leading to symptoms.
Low or fluctuating sex hormones in perimenopause and post menopause can result in:
- Mood swings
- Low sex drive
- Vaginal dryness
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Sleep disturbance
- Anxiety and overwhelm
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Brain fog and poor memory
Menopause is a natural process, and some women make all of the hormones they need from their adrenals once their ovaries stop producing. However, your adrenals may not be equipped to take on this role. This doesn’t mean that you should suffer though debilitating symptoms or risk developing a chronic disease associated with hormone deficiency.
