Reduce hot flushes a irritating symptoms naturally

Menopause is a sensitive time in a woman’s life, both physically and psychologically because it’s when ovarian activity stops. Menopause starts a year after menstruation cycles stop. It begins with a period of menstration periods and them finally stops. This usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 years or to any woman who’s had her ovaries removed or damaged.

These hormonal changes cause in particular a series of symptoms that are irritating and difficult to manage, such as a reduced estrogen level causes sudden hot flushes, irritability, insomnia, depression, vaginal dryness, and cold sweats. Each woman experiences menopause differently, but if symptoms are neglected, it can cause serious damage to the body and problems such as osteoporosis, reduced heart protection, an increased risk of atherosclerosis and thrombosis. These diseases are usually diagnosed when they’re already taking over, so it is important to see a specialist that can check your hormone levels and take an ultrasound of your uterus.

 

Natural ways to aid menopause

In order to overcome the initial period of adjustment, herbal medicine offers several natural remedies that help relieve the most irritating symptoms. Plants that are rich in phytoestrogens help balance women’s hormones during menopause. Often these plants are used in tinctures or capsules. Some plants that have beneficial properties that relieve symptoms caused by menopause are:


Soybeans

Soy is rich in isoflavones, which act like phytoestrogens or plant estrogens, which balance hormone levels. This is why many diets made for menopausal women include products with two benefits that come from soybeans: hormonal reorganization and low cholesterol foods that are suitable for a slowing metabolism.


Red Clover

Red clover is the most used plant to relieve the typical menopausal symptoms. Like soy, red clover also contains isoflavones which help fight against hot flashes and vaginal dryness; red clover is also rich in ingredients that help prevent osteoporosis.

 

Black Cohosh

Black cohosh is an herb that was used by the Native Americans. In addition to relieving menopausal symptoms, it also helps to balance mineral loss which prevents osteoporosis. However, it usually cannot be taken by people who suffer from gastric issues or that are allergic to aspirin. Consult a doctor before taking Black cohosh in order to be sure that it’s safe for you.

 

Magnesium

Magnesium is an essential component in order for the nervous system to function properly. It’s particularly helpful for those who are dealing with major mood swings and irritability. Additionally, magnesium prevents osteoporosis and works synergistically with calcium keeping bones healthy and strong.

 

If you are not affected by a disease, then there’s no reason why you can’t experience this new phase of life with serenity by relieving common symptoms with the help of plants and a balanced diet.

Interesting fact

Black cohosh gets its strange name from its flowers’ foul odor which has the ability to ward off insects.
