Peri-and post-menopause are associated with the onset of a range of unpleasant symptoms which can be very debilitating for women and last for many years.
Commonly experienced clinical symptoms include hot flushes, night sweats, weight gain, reduced lean muscle mass, musculoskeletal pain, cognitive impairment, brain fog, mood swings, depression and insomnia.
Menopause is also associated with an increased risk and incidence of diseases affecting the skeletal (osteoporosis), cardiovascular (heart disease), central nervous (anxiety), and urogenital systems (dryness and discomfort).
While the incidence and severity of these symptoms and diseases are different for each individual, their presence can have a considerable impact on women’s long-term physical, mental and emotional health and quality of life.
Luckily there is help at hand with particular herbal remedies proving to be very effective.
These include Black Cohosh, Sage, Rehmannia, Zizyphus, Hypericum, Lemon Balm, Hops, and Valerian.
There are also dietary recommendations that will support a healthy transition into this testing time.
