First Aid Tips to Manage Menopause Naturally

Many women think that menopause will happen, and it will be over in a relatively short time; unfortunately, for most women, that's just wishful thinking. Menopause is literally only one day. It’s the anniversary of our last period and after that we are postmenopausal for the rest of our lives. To remain well, you must carefully consider your journey through menopause. There are many options. But first, you have to make a pact with yourself to treat yourself as a priority for a few months. That isn’t a given as it doesn't come naturally to most of us. We are used to doing things for everyone else first!
Unfortunately, menopause symptoms are not likely to magically disappear without help. Research shows they can last up to 10 or more years. The good news is that once you understand what is going on in your body, you can make adjustments that significantly reduce your symptoms. Also, the positive changes you make will allow you to reclaim your well-being way after menopause, keeping your bones, heart and brain healthy.

Understanding what's happening in your body

During this stage of life, your body is often depleted of essential nutrients, which do not improve on their own as we age. Low level of nutrients interferes with your brain and hormone function, causing many of us to go into "economy mode", making it hard to function in the usual way. It's like having a hole in a bucket; nothing you do makes you feel better. Many women feel desperate, reeling from symptoms such as brain fog, confusion, low energy, fatigue, achy joints, hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings. Therefore, it is essential to understand what's happening in your body and that this is reversible.

How To Get Yourself in a Better Place During the Perimenopause Stage

In a survey, we completed of over 1100 women regarding their attitudes about menopause. We found that 96% of the women did not feel prepared for menopause and two-thirds of the women said they felt robbed of life as they knew it. Sadly, women often don’t get adequate support from their medical team, which isn’t too surprising given that the Mayo Clinic Survey in 2019 showed that only 7% of doctors and gynaecologists felt adequately educated to help women going through menopause! They have almost no training about the natural approach to menopause, even though thousands of medical papers have been published on this important subject. You can boost your nutrient levels and regulate your hormones naturally by changing your diet and taking the right supplements. We know from National Diet and Nutrition Surveys in the US and UK how nutrient deficient we are generally, which becomes a more significant problem as we approach menopause and beyond. We find that women who make these changes - even in six weeks – have significantly improved symptoms. Even if you choose to take HRT rather than the natural route, you will still need to get your nutrients back into good nutritional shape.

Our Natural Menopause Programme

Over 28 years, we have developed a five-month programme that has helped hundreds of thousands of women overcome their menopause symptoms. All of our work is based on published medical research, so nothing is left to guesswork. This is not a magic fix or a pill to pop; it requires work from your end. But over time, the results are overwhelmingly positive, and the tools you learn can be used to keep yourself in good health long after menopause. You can find out more about the changes you need to make in our FREE Midlife Refuel Club. For those who need personalised help you can join our Natural Menopause Solution. This program allows them to benefit from the same information we use with our one-to-one patients. The feedback on the programme has been excellent! Women have seen their symptoms disappear, and many say that their lives have completely been turned around for the better. It is lovely to see these women transform from shell-shocked menopause victims to vibrant, confident women ready to take on the world. And you can also achieve the same results!

Daily Relaxation: Formal relaxation for 20 minutes a day can reduce your flushes by 50 to 60 per cent. What is formal relaxation?

Getting Your Nutrient Levels Back into an Optimum Range: Getting your nutrient levels back into an optimum range takes time.
