Self Care – The first step 

Practice self love and care.  Taking time out for yourself is a good practice.  

Practice good self-care. You will love yourself more, when you take better care of your basic needs. People high in self-love nourish themselves daily through healthy activities, like sound nutrition,  exercise, proper sleep, intimacy and healthy social interactions. 

Time out doing things you love but have not had the time time to do is vital to help support wellbeing. Meeting friends and girl time.

I offer guidance on this practice as part of my  guidance work for clients.  Making simple changes can be life changing.    

Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus tea is rich in anti-oxidants which can fight against aging and keeps the skin healthy and glowing.  Hibiscus is  also known for its calming properties and good for managing  hot flashes during the menopause. This is because it helps the Central nervous system and restores hormonal imbalances.

The vitamin C and anti-inflammatory properties of hibiscus tea can be highly effective when treating acne – so its good for teens going trough their transitions too. 

Hibiscus tea speeds up metabolism

As mentioned above, hibiscus tea is rich in vitamin C. This vitamin plays an important role in improving one’s metabolism. The presence of vitamin C in hibiscus tea allows this tea to speed up and regulate our metabolism. If you are trying to lose weight, or are trying to maintain your current weight, then try drinking hibiscus tea regularly..

Sage

Research undertaken in  Switzerland showed how helpful Sage was for menopausal women who  reported at least five hot flushes day.  This tablet contained fresh sage leaves.  Tea is also an alternative. 

Yoga

Wild Yam Cream – Has been used as a topical cream and applied to skin, creams made with wild yam are marketed as a natural source of estrogen. However, there’s no definitive evidence (yet) to support whether wild yam  increases estrogen levels .  Its your choice. 

Black Cohosh and Red Clover- Can been used to help stable women’s hormones and symptoms associated with many ailments such as blood pressure. 

Meditation 

Can be a useful practice for relieving anxiety caused by Menopause.  Take a look at  my classes under events for details of my events and programmes.

Natural alternatives to use : 

  • Staying hydrated. Water is vital  as it provides hydration to the body  at a cellular level. 8 glasses a day will help nourish you and your body.
  • Phytoestrogens. Increasing  flaxseed ( as seen in the table above) can help with Oestrogen deficiency.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids. Found in deep marine and cold-water fish /flaxseed oil, can be helpful  with vaginal lubrication.
  • Eating a balanced Full fat  diet. Low-fat diets are actually worse for  vaginal dryness. I recommend unsaturated fats over saturated ones.
  • Meditation – Attend a weekly class
  • Yoga – find a class that suits your level and needs.

The Peri Menopause stage 

The Peri-Menopause stage will be different for  everyone and can typically be between 2-10 years (average of 4) before your final menstruation.

Keeping a journal can be helpful during this phase and helps me understand how to help you with your nutrition programme using your lived experiences  and symptoms through this life stage.

Diet and lifestyle can play an immense role in improving and supporting women during their menopause symptoms.  

Increasingly conventional doctors do not have the time to help to you with alternative options other tan HRT.  There are a lot of alternative diets and therapies which are safer and better for womens’ health and well being.
