Easing Menopause

Supporting Menopause Naturally

Menopause is a natural process where a woman transitions from her childbearing years to the next stage of her life.

At this time it’s important for women to examine their stress levels, review their current lifestyle choices, and establish healthy habits. Hormones are one part of the picture in menopause, but they aren’t the only contributor. Menopause has significant effects on a number of organ systems. Addressing all aspects of your body that influence your menopausal symptoms is vital when embarking on this next stage of life. 

Whilst declining oestrogen is one of the reasons for hot flushes and night sweats, a common menopausal symptom, it is not the only cause. In fact, it is stress levels that play a larger role than oestrogen levels in triggering hot flushes. To highlight this, recent research has found that menopausal women have increased activity of the stress centre of the brain right before the onset of a hot flush.(1)

Therefore, it is vitally important to support a healthy stress response, not just hormones, to reduce menopausal symptoms.

Alison can offer tailored support with this transition towards a balanced and energised mind and body. Specific herbs and nutrients can support healthy sleep patterns and nourish your stress response, and hence support your menopausal symptoms.
