As we age, women‘s nutritional needs change over time. We all know that exercise, healthy diets, and smart vitamin supplementation can help women enjoy and get the most out of every stage of their lives.
Declining estrogen levels associated with menopause can cause more than hot flashes. They can also make a woman feel like she is in a constant state of PMS. Unfortunately, these emotional changes are a normal part of menopause. Some of the emotional changes women experience during this time can include:
- Feelings of sadness
- Lack of motivation
- Difficulty concentrating
- Mood changes
If you are feeling irritable and sad, there is a good chance it could be related to menopause. The symptoms listed above are not necessarily linked only to menopause. There are a number of conditions that can cause you to feel downright irritable. It is important to tell your doctor how you are feeling so other medical or psychiatric conditions can be ruled out.
Coping with irritability and feelings of sadness are the most common emotional symptoms of menopause. Often, they can be managed through learning ways to relax and reduce stress. Some helpful tips that may make it easier for you to handle your fluctuating emotions are:
- Exercise and eat healthy.
- Practice yoga, meditation, or rhythmic breathing.
- Avoid tranquilizers and alcohol.
- Engage in a creative outlet that fosters a sense of achievement.
- Stay connected with your family and community.
- Nurture your friendships.
Although depression is not caused by menopause, some women exhibit the symptoms of depression during this time. Of course, if you are feeling increasingly unable to cope, you should see your doctor so a recommended medicine, such as antidepressants, or therapy that can get you through this rough time. I do not personally like taking prescription drugs for controlling menopause symptoms. I prefer more natural organic methods.
Unfortunately, difficulty with concentration and minor memory problems can often be a normal part of the time leading up to menopause or perimenopause, (defined as not having a period for a year). The good news is that it is likely to be temporary.
Personally, through the years I have maintained my vitamin regimen and taking organic hormone replacement products instead of prescription drugs, which have several side effects such as breast cancer, depression among others. Try reading the PMR on Premarin which is derived from pregnant mare urine and is prescribed by many doctors and causes numerous side effects.
I have found that consistently taking Zija’s SuperMix and XM+ vitamin and nutrient sachets have helped tremendously to regulate my hormonal balance during my menopause years and reduces those pesky hot flashes. Taking these have also helped reduce my mood swings and sleep better during the night without waking up restless and sweaty. I no longer take anything for my menopause symptoms and feel better than I have in over 16 years!
