Have you considered having a bespoke plan to get you on the right path?

Here are some helpful tips to help you while you decide.

Self Care

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.

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

Hibiscus Tea –

Has been used to help flushes.  This is a easy way to help support menopausal symptoms.

Hibiscus and Sage tea is beneficial for women

 

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

Effects of Pure Sage on Hot Flashes in Women

Research undertaken in  Switzerland showed a how helpful Sage was for menopausal women who were reporting at least five  hot flushes  day.  The tablet contained fresh sage leaves for eight weeks.

Yoga

Helps build core strength and  helpful during the any stage of life and good to do during peri and menopause –  There are many different types of yoga to choose from and discover which one might be right for you.  I like vinyasa flow and Pranic as they help me keep balanced in life.  20 mins a day is enough and I now use a few programmes that are my go to therapy for any time of stress.  They always work.

Reiki and Seichem Healing

Can be also be effective to help calm and manage anxieties  Refer to my services and treatment  for details .  Regular healings will help restore inner balance and harmony 

Dietary changes –

Making the necessary dietary changes during the menopause can be easily achieved with a bespoke plan.  I recommend having a blood test to make it a targeted and focussed plan on the right amino acids and minerals needed.

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.
