The Menopause - a stage in our lifetime

The menopause happens to all women and is just another stage in our lifetime. It is a journey that is different for everyone. Unfortunately, it's not a subject that many feel able to talk about and so seemingly small irritations can become huge problems both in our personal and working lives.

The more you know what to expect, how to reduce the effects; the more you can talk to others about how it is affecting your life, the less likely it is to have a negative impact on your life.

We are all unique, no one fits into the 'normal' range of symptoms and severity.

What is the menopause?

The menopause is not just about your periods stopping or just a hormone deficiency. The menopause is a complete life transition that you will go through, a little like puberty, but the other way around. Instead of your sex hormones increasing to improve fertility, your sex hormones will be decreasing and fertility will be lessened.

The Menopause, which affects everyone with an ovarian system, normally starts in your 40's but, teenagers can experience menopause. Anyone who has Premature Ovarian Insufficiency known as 'early menopause', hysterectomy (uterus removal) and/or oophorectomy (ovary removal) will go through the menopause early.

How does it affect me?

The menopause has 3 main stages which are variable in length and are different for everyone.

  • Perimenopause can start in your early 40's and can last for 12 years or more before your last period. It is more usual to be around 4 years.

  • Menopause is just one day 12 months from your last period.

  • Post menopause which starts 12 months from your last period.

Your menopause symptoms can be numerous and can affect your emotional, mental and physical health:

  • Physical symptoms such as hot flushes, trouble sleeping, aching joints, muscles, aching feet, dry and watering eyes, weight gain loss of sex drive, vaginal dryness, bladder urgency and leakage, fibromyalgia, psoriasis,

  • Psychological symptoms such as irritability, forgetfulness, loss of concentration, brain fog, anxiety, feelings of insecurity, becoming over emotional, a general low mood, tiredness and fatigue.

Help yourself

Reduce your stress

The main way to help yourself to reduce your menopause symptoms is to reduce your stress. Stress will increase the severity of your symptoms which in turn makes you more stressed.

Reducing stress is not just about emotional and mental stress but physical stresses in our body. Everybody has room within their lifestyle to make some small changes. Make time for 5 minutes each day to do something for yourself such as; go for a walk, read a book, sit outside with a cuppa, do a youtube yoga or qi gong class, start a diary, do some gardening, put on some makeup, tidy a drawer, meditate, breathe, take a nap, finish a chore you have started, phone a friend ...

Healthy gut

A healthy gut and good elimination helps to rid our bodies of toxins including used up hormones. Ideally a balanced diet full of fruit, veg, fibre, good fats, protein and staying hydrated.

Reducing refined carbohydrates such as white bread and pasta, sugared drinks and snacks helps to reduce insulin surges, which can cause palpitations.

Make sure you have enough protein at meals and when snacking; it helps to fill you up for longer and reduces our sugar highs and lows. A small protein snack before bedtime may help your sleep as you're not so likely to have a sugar low during the night.

Water splashing

Not sure where to start?

I have many clients who are at different stages of the menopause, and I have experienced many of the symptoms in varying degrees myself. Since I have been using the Asyra I have been able to manage my symptoms and my clients have noticed some of their symptoms have disappeared or have improved such as; hot flushes, better sleep, less tiredness and fatigue, more in control of their emotional and mental health, feeling more able to accept their symptoms and adjust their lifestyle where necessary.

The Asyra asks your body what it needs and provides personalised energetic remedies to help balance your body and help reduce your menopause symptoms. My Clients menopause remedies have included energetic Bach Flower Remedies, chakra and meridian balancing, essential oils, colours, changes to diet, supplements, and yoga poses and Qi Gong exercises which target areas that are known to help with the menopause, breath work and meditation.

If you come for an appointment then a 90 or 120 minute initial appointment will give you an Asyra balance with remedies, and at least a 30 minute treatment which can include Reiki and energy healing, Sound Therapy using tuning forks (very relaxing), and for more physical problem areas a relaxing CranioSacral Therapy, Manual Lympahatic Drainage and Myofascial Release.

Or just pop in for a relaxing treatment of your choice; just 30 minutes gives you some time to yourself in a warm and secure place and a chat if you need it.
