Menopause - it is one of the more confusing and least-talked about times of a woman’s life.
Emotions can run wild, hormones flare and one’s own body feels like it is internally baking.
For the uninformed, life during this strange and scary period is seldom fun.
Traveling this new path of life need not be a time of melancholic dismay. New careers are launched, passions followed and new loves found or old ones more richly seasoned. Try not to mark this time as an ending. Rather focus on all the positive aspects womanhood offers as your ovaries close down.
Granted, if you are simultaneously reading this while blotting pools of perspiration or bleary-eyed from a lack of sleep, joyous concentration and menopause are hardly equal components of the same sentence.
To abundantly survive and thrive during this time, without chemicals or hormones, are found through natural options.
Herbal supplements lead the list of many gynecologic health providers and wellness advocates.
For centuries, starting with Native American tribes, black cohosh, a member of the buttercup family, proves an effective tool.
Under the product name of Remifemin, studies of extracts of the plant’s roots and rhizomes have demonstrated the power to relieve or lessen hot flashes, depression and sleep deprivation. Unlike pharmaceutical alternatives, doses of black cohosh has not displayed any estrogenic effect that are linked to diseases like breast cancer.
From Asia another underground herb delivers substantial comfort.
Growing alongside an umbel of white flowers, the dried long linear leaves of the lily-like Crinum latifolium also share a long traditional medicine history.
Now taken in pill form, the herb was once under the sole domain of the royal family of Vietnam. Its antioxidant and other uterine health benefits reduce the draining effects of sudden hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings.
Incorporating nature’s herbal supplements into a life with more emphasis on healthy diets and regular exercise brings fruitfulness to all areas of your new life.
