Today I’m going to cover what menopause really is as well as a few things that may help with it.
What is menopause?
It’s a situation where a woman is running out of eggs. Around age 51, you don’t have any more eggs left. This means no more menstruation or pregnancy.
Symptoms of menopause:
• Hot flashes
• Vaginal dryness
• Vaginal atrophy
• Mood changes
• Weight gain
• Loss of libido
• Bone loss
What actually is happening with menopause is you’re getting a shift in hormones. There are three hormones that are involved: estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. After menopause, you have a drop in these hormones, especially progesterone. Progesterone works with estrogen—it counters estrogen.
This massive drop in progesterone can cause estrogen dominance symptoms even though estrogen has dropped as well. Progesterone makes estrogen seem higher because it drops so much more. Progesterone is really behind many of the issues that occur during menopause.
You have a back-up mechanism called your adrenals. The adrenals also make estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. But, if the adrenals are weak going into menopause and they aren’t able to back up the ovaries appropriately, you may start seeing problems with these hormones. In reality, the menopause symptoms above are not normal. If the adrenals are weak, that’s when you start to see problems. It’s important to support the adrenals before you get into menopause and try to keep your stress low.
Natural things you can do to help with menopause:
1. Support the adrenals
2. Do not go on a low-fat diet
3. Counter high cortisol
4. Increase progesterone
5. Vitamin E
