Occurs generally in mid or late forties in life of every woman, menopause, is a normal process. Started long back in adolescent age, the reproductive period of a woman, comes to an end during mid or late forties and menopause signifies that.
Even though this a quite normal phase of a woman’s life, but a lot of misconceptions are still there in our society about menopause. It is not absurd, that this is the time when women start feeling that they are not any more at their best when comes to physical vigor. A normal way of thinking is, “I am growing old”. Many women feel that this puts a stop to their sexual pleasure. If you are a woman and think in the same way, then believe us you are far away from the actual truth. It is true that it connotes an end to woman’s fertility but not to her virility undoubtedly. It no way decreases the physical vigor or sexual vigor.
Particularly gonads, thyroid and pituitary, that means the entire chain of endocrine glands is disturbed during the period of menopause. It is evidently observed that in a healthy woman, the menopausal change occurs without any problem or any unlikable symptoms. The only sign a healthy and fit woman gets is, the cessation of menstrual flow. Due to two common reasons, it is seen, that many women don’t enjoy the pleasure of having a good health. Two above mentioned reasons are:
- Dietetic errors and
- Imperfect and faulty lifestyles.
Physical, emotional and nervous symptoms are observed in these cases mainly. These distressing symptoms can be avoided during the menopausal change effortlessly with a proper diet and good lifestyle.
Now, let us take a close look at the symptoms:
- Hot flashes.
- Night Sweats.
- Nervous tension.
- Diminished sex interest and pleasure.
- Menstrual disorders.
- Bad temper.
- Chilly feelings.
- Lack of sensation or numbness.
Not all the women, however, get these severe reactions. On an array of factors, the severity depends. These are:
- General Health.
- Previous Surgery.
When menstruation stops, the problems related to menopause generally are over.
Ovaries are generally no longer producing their normal amount of estrogen, the foremost female hormone and this is the stage when annoying symptoms related to menopause actually crop up. These symptoms can also be seen when anything gets in the way of normal functioning of the ovaries. The same feeling of distress normally is observed when ovary is removed due to diseases. Two other important reasons of this are:
- X-ray therapy.
- Use of radiation.
Normal balance of hormone is really very important. Unless and otherwise, severe backache can cause a lot of troubles. Low level of estrogen in bloodstream may result from thinning of bones and ultimately it leads to severe backache as well. It has to be treated with utmost importance; otherwise one or more of the vertebrae would eventually be collapsed.
- Nutritional Program.
- Special supplements and
- Right mental attitude.
Yes, with the above mentioned procedures, you can make menopause a smooth affair in your life and you also can postpone it for 10 to 15 years. But, obviously it can’t be avoided.
If you are a woman and are affected by any marked extent of menopausal change, then it is obvious that it is a sign that your body is in a toxic condition. It also means that your body needs a thorough and perfect cleansing. Hence, it is mandatory to go through a course of natural health-building treatment.
For an apt and appropriate treatment, it’s important to understand the necessity of dieting. It’s important to take care of your diet even many years before of your menopause period. Otherwise, the problems with menopause would be even more severe as compared to that of puberty. Sufficient foodstuffs with the following nutrients are important:
- Vitamin D.
- Vitamin E and
- Pantothenic acid.
Concentrate on the following basic food groups for appropriate diet:
- Seeds, nuts and grains.
Emphasis should always be given to the Vitamin-E rich raw and sprouted seeds and nuts. Consume:
- High quality milk.
- Home-made cottage cheese.
- A lot of raw and organically grown fruits and vegetables.
- Juice of fresh juice.
- Juice of fresh and seasonal vegetables.
- Food supplements of Vitamin C and B6.
- Pantothenic acid.
Pantothenic acid always has that power of enhancing the production of estrogen hormone. It also improves the effect of existing estrogen.
- All processed foods.
- Refined and Denatured foods.

It is seen that deficiency of calcium leads to the lack of ovarian hormones. A good intake of calcium through foodstuffs can proved to be really beneficial. Assimilating calcium, Vitamin D and F are important. Look what you have to take if you have a deficiency of calcium or if you have any kind of difficulty:
- 1000 units of natural Vitamin D.
- Approximately 500 milligrams of magnesium.
- Two grams of calcium regularly (Get it from one quart of milk).
We all know that Vitamin E is very important for us. But, during the period of Menopause the importance of the Vitamin E increases to 10 to 50 times than the actual need. If you continue to take 50 to 100 units of Vitamin E daily, then you would discover that symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats disappear quickly. Don’t ever try to discontinue the routine of taking Vitamin E. If you do that, then the symptoms would come back again and again.
It has now become a common tendency to take estrogen to prevent or postpone menopausal symptoms. It is not a bad idea in many cases though. Patients many times feel energetic and younger after taking estrogen. But, certainly this is not the treatment for all women for its carcinogenic effect. It is recommended, however, not to take estrogen therapy while taking Vitamin E therapy. The time gap between estrogen therapy and Vitamin E therapy should be several hours. Make sure that happens for an opposite and better result.
In order to treat menopausal disorders properly don’t forget to take beet juice. Make sure you consume it in small quantities and thrice a day. 60-90 ml at a time would be apt. It is needless to say that this treatment is much more effective as compared to drugs or synthetic hormones.
Carrot seeds are also very effective in treating menopausal problems. A full spoon of carrot seeds has to be boiled approximately for 10 minutes in a glass full of cow milk. It has to be then taken daily as a medicine in this condition.
It is really very important to go for physical exercises as well. Suitable physical exercises are:
- Mental and emotional stress.
- Don’t worry about growing old.
To be fit and healthy, make sure that you sleep properly and relax. For experience fewer menopausal symptoms, a woman has to be fit and fine.
