Why Relief From The Symptoms Of Menopause Is Worth It For You
Menopause is a time of change for a woman that provides an opportunity for health assessment and promotion, and while it can be tricky to navigate this period in life, the health benefits to managing unwanted symptoms should not be overlooked.
The symptoms of menopause usually set in between the age of 45 to 55 and can last between 5 to 10 years – sometimes longer. While menopause is unavoidable, the frequency and severity of menopausal symptoms vary, with as many as 80% of Australian women experiencing severe side-effects. Typical menopausal symptoms are vasomotor symptoms (hot flushes), vaginal dryness and sleep disturbances, with the probability of other, more uncommon symptoms becoming higher if the woman has vasomotor symptoms.
Although menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) can be an effective treatment, there has shown to be conflicting information about its safety. Some women show contraindications during therapy (meaning the treatment may be harmful to the person), or find MHT ineffective. For example, there are known to be cases where hormone therapy has been linked to increased risks of breast cancer and venous thromboembolism, leading to an increasing number of women searching for alternatives.
It can be confusing time for a woman to know what the best treatments are, with medical flip-flops on the benefits and dangers of artificial hormones on the rise. More and more women are giving up on trusting research produced by the health care establishment and instead looking to alternative medicine for answers.
Luckily, there are a range of natural, non-hormonal treatments and lifestyle changes a woman can integrate that are effective in relieving menopause symptoms and increasing quality of life during what can be a challenging period for women.
A HEALTHY PATHWAY
There is a clear need for general health promotion and obesity prevention during the menopausal age in order to increase quality of life. Lifestyle changes such as increasing physical activity, not smoking and maintaining a healthy diet can alleviate the severity of menopause symptoms – especially the hot flushes.
These changes can be boosted by complementary natural supplements such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which are a great alternative to often intrusive pharmacological treatments.
TCM views kidney energy as supporting the metabolic process – which decreases naturally as we age. When the balance of kidney ‘yin and yang’ is upset – such as during menopause – hot flushes or night sweats may appear. Throughout Asia, TCM is commonly used to gently sooth kidney energy and restore this balance.
Studies have shown that Japanese and Chinese women suffer the least amount of menopause symptoms when compared to their Western counterparts. What causes this disparity? Certainly diet and lifestyle choices between cultures play a key role; however when women from the East look to alleviate the symptoms of menopause they frequently turn to culturally traditional medicines that has been benefiting them for more than 3,000 years over recently established hormone therapies. It is no wonder that women in Western countries are increasingly turning to alternative treatments such as TCM.
