Managing Menopause: How to Achieve Natural Balance
Are you worried you might be entering the early stages of menopause? For women in their early to mid forties, it is not uncommon to begin to experience certain changes that signify your body’s natural hormonal shift over time. While the “M” word may be a source of anxiety and negative connotations for some, with proper insights and a plan, menopause can become a healthy time of transition. Learn more about the early symptoms of menopause, as well a natural option for dealing with the side effects below!
First things first
Despite being a natural process that every woman will experience in her lifetime, there tends to be a great deal of misconceptions when it comes to unpacking what causes menopause and how to “treat” it. Having the right knowledge in your tool belt will help alleviate stress and aid you in preparing for each phase of your body’s transition. To help start off on the right foot, let’s take a quick look at what menopause involves.

Menopause cannot be prevented or treated with medication, though there are many options available to help mitigate the more unpleasant symptoms. Living a healthy lifestyle during peri-menopause (the initial stages leading up to menopause), throughout menopause, and post-menopause will help your body adapt to the changes it is undergoing with greater ease.
Signs and Symptoms
As we mentioned above, every woman’s experience with menopause will differ slightly. Common symptoms include:
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Irritability/Mood swings
- Mental fog
- Inconsistent periods.
If you are between 45 and 55, and it has been more than 12 months since your last consistent menstrual cycle, you may have begun the transition into menopause. Speaking with your health care practitioner can help address any initial concern.
