Menopause: What’s Stress got to do with it?

Stress can have a major impact on your life and your health.  If you’re a woman in menopause, you are more likely to have the dreaded HOT FLASH!

This happens because the stress demands that the body produce hormones from the adrenal glands, such as adrenaline. If this persists, then a hormonal imbalance occurs, and the result is a hot flash, or some other symptom of menopause.

What can you do?

There are actually several very simple steps you can take to help alleviate the hot flashes.

Eat whole, fresh foods; especially fruits and vegetables. The nutrients found in these foods will give your body the necessary ingredients to produce the hormones you need.

Make time for regular exercise. This also helps relieve stress and anxiety. Just imagine for a moment the difference between sitting and stewing over a problem and taking a long, brisk walk or bicycle ride! You will certainly feel better and be able to think more clearly when you exercise.

Supplement your diet with high grade natural vitamins and minerals.

Drink lots of clear, fresh water. I like to add a twist of lemon or lime.  It cleans you out and enables your body to function as it should.  Beverages like coffee, tea or juice; should be restricted. 

Learn deep-breathing techniques. This is very helpful when you are feeling stressed. It is amazing how effective this little method of slow, paced breathing is.

Menopause Maintainence goes a long way in helping to reduce additional unnecessary symptoms and conditions.
