Find your power during this season of life
Many women struggle with the symptoms of the peri-menopause and menopause such as hot flushes, forgetfulness and loss of libido. But it doesn't have to be like this. Let's shed shed some light on the science behind the menopausal stage of life and locate your power!
Allopathic medicine defines the menopause as a 'deficiency of oestrogen'. However nature did not make a mistake - the menopause not a deficiency but rather a rite of passage, a necessary and empowering phase of life where personal, physical and emotional development takes place. As Leslie Kenton says in her book Passage to Power, “Power, energy and freedom. These are the rewards of menopause." Actually rather than the menopause being defined as a deficiency of oestrogen, we can actually observe that in our culture an overload of oestrogen mimicking chemicals exist and play havoc on our oestrogen receptors and as a result, play havoc with our internal balance of hormones. The two main hormones in the body are oestrogen and progesterone. The balance between these hormones is crucial and play a hugely significant role in our internal hormonal balance during menopause. Progesterone helps to keep oestrogen under control in the body, but when we stop ovulating no progesterone is released in the body.
A rise in pollution since the 1940's has resulted in an imbalance of oestrogen due to something in the pollution called xeno-oestrogen, "Xeno-oestrogens are chemicals which have the characteristic of oestrogen and attach themselves to the oestrogen receptors found in our cells. They come mostly from the breakdown products of many processes involved in the petro-chemical and plastics industry. Once attached to the receptors they produce a stronger effect than oestrogen itself. Other xeno-orestrogens in common use are the synthetic drugs now used in the contraceptive pill, fertility treatments and HRT! These Xeno-oestrogens cause hormonal havoc. Because of all the xeno-oestrogens, It is now this state of oestrogen dominance that is responsible for the hormonal imbalances many people--- women, men, children and even the unborn child, suffer from today. It is this state of hormonal imbalance that has made the symptoms of menopause far worse."*
Holistic approaches to help rebalance the internal hormonal environment whilst alleviating symptoms of the peri-menopause and menopause include dietary changes such as eliminating sugar and caffeine which can have a significantly positive effect in managing hot flushes, and the use of a very popular supplement called Naturone natural progesterone cream, which balances the ill-effects of the xeno-oestrogen on the body:
Progesterone is the hormone responsible for stimulating the bone building function and, provided nutrition is good, improving bone mass density and reversing osteoporosis.
Progesterone is the hormone that helps to slow down the ageing process
It is natures “Valium”, natural sedative, transquilizer and anti-depressant.
It is the hormone that balances oestrogens and makes the right oestrogen needed at specific stages of life.
And yes, in most cases, it alleviates most hot flushes!
