How to Embrace Menopause
Although menopause is a natural transition, many women find themselves dreading this stage of life. In your mind, menopause may represent much more than the end of your reproductive period. You may equate this particular milestone with the end of your youth, which can cause a tremendous amount of dread and anxiety in addition to other premenopausal related symptoms (mood swings, weight gain, etc.). Menopause does not have to be viewed as an end of an era just a beginning of a new one.
Here are 3 Tips to Getting Through Menopause:
1) When in doubt workout
Exercise is an excellent way to alleviate symptoms of menopause. Aerobic workouts will help you to maintain a healthy metabolic rate while weight training will increase strength in your bones and muscles. Working out can also help balance out your stress hormones.
2) You don’t have to eat less, you just have to eat right
Good nutrition can help counteract certain menopausal symptoms that may develop during menopause. Increase your intake of iron and fiber and always be sure to eat a lot of fruits and veggies and drink a lot of water.
3) Hormone Therapy
Many common symptoms that occur during menopause – anger, sleepless nights, lower sex drive, weight gain, hot flashes, and mood swings – are the result of fluctuating hormone levels. Hormone therapy can restore your hormones to functional levels, which can help you regain vitality in your life.
While some women breeze through menopause others experience really tasking symptoms. We recognize that every patient, at New Day Vitality, is unique and are committed to dedicating the time and energy to determining the best solution for your symptoms.
