Naturopathic approach to treating menopause

Menopause

In keeping with the traditions of my clinic the first thing I tell my patients is that menopause; the cessation of ovulation is not a disease and it should be welcomed rather than feared. It's aliberating life transition; a slowing of hormone production after passing the childbearing years.
Menopause can last for 10 years for some people. Taking artificial hormones as a from of treatment; unless specifically needed is a much less attractive choice than increasing foods and herbs to help move the process along.
We can achieve all the things hormones replacement is supposed to do with much less risk in a natural manner.

When ovulation ceases there is a quick drop in the production of progesterone. Going through menopause can be a very difficult and challenging period for many women. It is our goal to make this transition as smooth and comfortable as possible by using natural means.
Unlike modern Western medicine we treat the individual holistically. We believe there are many facets that need to be attended to in treating menopause effectively and of cause safely. After treating countless women for menopause we have found that treating and boosting the adrenal gland function, optimising liver function, reducing stress, implementing an exercise regime and preparing a healthy eating plan all work wonders for those women struggling through this challenging time.

Hot Flashes

Hot flashes occurs when the body is trying to mobilize it's fat stores in order to release estrogens; but if estrogens are not there the hot flashes get more intense and frequent until estrogens are introduced from external methods such as food and medicine. Hot flashes during menopause can be exacerbated by drinking alcohol, high blood pressure, having an unhealthy weight range, fatty liver and stress. All these possible causes can be readily adressed by partaking in a holistc treatment program.

How to boost hormones naturally and safely

The way in which we will enhance hormone levels naturally is by using medicinal herbs to boost adrenal function and eating foods high in phyto-oestrogens. Phyto-estrogens found in plants are much weaker than hormones found in human body. They help balance the levels of hormones whether they are high or low and are therefore very safe.

Eating Habits

Being overweight increases the severity of the symptoms and also the variety of symptoms experienced. Eating a healthy diet rich in soy and fish has been shown to reduce symptoms and increase health. Vegetables are also very important and 5 servings should be eaten a day and 5 serving of Fruit is vital to maintain healthy digestive balance and the passage of waste. A diet including vegetables and fruits increase body levels and stores of phytoestrogens and phytoprogesterones.

Exercise

Muscle mass is associated with longevity.
We all know that obese people are more at risk of all-cause mortality than people who are fit and exercise regularly. Once again science is telling us to get out and burn of that excess fat. Exercise directly reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and bone loss.
