MENOPAUSE is well documented and the subject of much discussion, but many women can experience problems long before they reach 'The Change'. As mid-life approaches the hormonal balance can begin to waver. As early as 35 years of age, most women will demonstrate hormonal indications of approaching menopause, even though symptoms may not be apparent, and periods still seem normal.
Natural alternatives can ease the way through this potentially difficult period of a women’s life – and without resort to possibly dangerous Hormone Replacement Therapy. Women who have a history of thrombosis, high blood pressure and cholesterol problems may have no alternatives, as HRT is not recommended under these circumstances. Dietary imbalances and high stress levels can greatly aggravate hormone-induced symptoms, so consider addressing these aspects also.
This is a suitable time to start taking proper care of your bones and joints so that you can enjoy the extra freedom of these exciting years.
