Beat Menopause Naturally: Natural Remedies to Manage Menopause Symptoms When HRT isn't an Option

Dorothia Hultin

Menopause is defined as the point in a woman's life when her menstrual cycles have stopped for 12 consecutive months. It is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman's reproductive years. The average age of menopause is 51, but it can occur as early as the 30s or as late as the 60s.

Physical Changes during Menopause

The physical changes that occur during menopause are the result of the gradual decline of estrogen production by the ovaries. As estrogen levels decline, women may experience a range of symptoms, including:

Hot flashes and night sweats: A sudden feeling of warmth or heat that spreads over the body, often accompanied by sweating and a rapid heartbeat. Night sweats are hot flashes that occur during sleep and can disrupt sleep patterns.

Vaginal dryness: A decrease in estrogen levels can cause thinning and dryness of the vaginal tissues, leading to discomfort during sexual activity.

Urinary incontinence: The muscles that control the bladder can weaken during menopause, leading to urinary incontinence.

Mood changes: Fluctuations in estrogen levels can lead to mood swings, irritability, and depression.

Changes in skin and hair: A decrease in estrogen levels can cause dryness and thinning of the skin, as well as hair loss or thinning.
