Top 5 at-home, natural treatments for menopause relief fast
Prevent through food
The best medicine is preventative, and the most preventative medicine is food. You should strive for a balance of good fats, complex carbohydrates, and protein. Also, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables at every meal, including breakfast. It’s best to eat three meals a day and two or more snacks to keep your blood sugar stable. The most important thing to remember is to reduce carbohydrates, especially refined carbohydrates, and sugars.
Supplement with herbs
Herbs are miraculous because they share a similar molecular structure to our hormones. This allows them to support our hormone production by slowing them down or even copying what our own hormones do, depending on your body’s unique needs. Some herbs that can help reduce menopause symptoms include St. John’s wort, black cohosh, passionflower, chaste berry, wild yam, and ashwagandha.
Because of your fluctuating estrogen levels, your body will tend to hold on to fat. Additionally, fat actually produces estrogen, which can create even more fat. So it’s easy to get stuck in a frustrating cycle if you’re not active. Moving your body has a major impact on your weight, other menopausal symptoms, and your overall health. Gentle exercise can be helpful too, especially if your adrenal glands are overworked and you constantly feel fatigued. Movement is also medicine so find a movement you enjoy and be consistent!
Keep hot flashes at bay
Those up and down hormones cause you to feel out of nowhere, so be prepared! Be sure to drink a lot of water, so the heat doesn’t tax your system. Also be sure to stock up on a Eucalyptus ShowerMist, that you can either spray into the steam of the shower to invigorate you or for you to spray around you as the hot flashes hit. Eucalyptus is cooling and calming; the perfect helper to this crazy season.
Be nurturing to yourself
The physical effects of stress make nurturing self-care especially important. One of the most effective, inexpensive and amazingly simple ways to reduce stress is deep breathing. Think how easy just taking a deep breath several times a day is. Know how much sleep you need, and respect that. Go to bed early or sleep in if you can. Get massages. Facials. Your skin is likely to break out more often with the hormonal changes, and it feels good to maintain your glow.
When women make natural adjustments to their lifestyles, not only do they feel much better but also feel in control of their menopause symptoms. And we’re happy to support you on the journey.
