Maintaining Health While Navigating Menopause
By Jordan Rubin – ExtraOrdinary Health Article


Any woman who has just entered, gone through, or who is on the other side of Perimenopause or menopause knows the drill. You’re going along with your life and then…it hits you.

And it’s no wonder that the time surrounding menopause can be such a jolt to your life. At the time of menopause, the hormonal output, instead of reducing gradually over time, can alternately stop and start resulting in a proverbial hormonal roller coaster ride for some women.

And this topsy-turvy hormonal state can last a while, too. While the time of menopause varies from woman-to-woman, it can occur anywhere from age 40 to age 59—or even earlier or later—and is a transition that can last several months to several years.

During this time, estrogen levels drop, but the body still makes some estrogen. In the past, it was believed that during menopause, a woman simply “ran out of estrogen,” but that simply isn’t the case. This is also what led many to believe that estrogen replacement would remedy menopause. It isn’t that simple, though.

For those who want to go a different route from hormone replacement therapy (HRT), phytoestrogenic foods such as apples, carrots, yams, green beans, peas, potatoes, red beans, brown rice, whole wheat, and flaxseeds can play positive roles in the metabolism of estrogen.

The truth is that the effects of menopause come along due to estrogen dominance in the body, since progesterone (one of the two main reproductive hormone groups—the other being estrogen) production declines in the years leading up to menopause. And it’s a hormonal readjustment that can lead to many of the discomforts of menopause, including hot flashes, heart palpitations, flushing, night sweats, anxiety, water retention, weight gain, memory problems, irritability and/or depression.

             

That’s why some women seek out natural progesterone. Since menopause causes cessation of ovulation (and, hence, too little production of progesterone), estrogen can be the dominant hormone. And when estrogen dominates and progesterone wanes, then estrogen can cause major health problems if it is not balanced out by progesterone.

For some women entering menopause who have menstrual periods without ovulation (due to the lessened amounts of progesterone), poor diet, and lack of exercise, they arrive at menopause with 25 percent to 30 percent loss of bone mass, according to one source. It’s no wonder osteoporosis can be a problem. Progesterone is of prime importance, too, because it stimulates osteoblast-mediated new bone formation. It also appears to offer cardio-protection, too, which is important concerning the heightened risk of developing heart disease.

But progesterone is not alone in addressing the issues surrounding menopause.

Healthy Diet

A healthy diet high in phytoestrogens, vitamin D, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids (which, according to some studies, can help reduce hot flashes and support healthy skin, hair, and nails—and one omega-3 fatty acid called docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, can help support heart health), regular exercise, and other lifestyle factors can support a healthy and balanced passage through menopause.

More information on the importance and sources of Omega 3 can be found here:

Navigating menopause while maintaining health narrows down to managing or eliminating the symptoms of menopause while minimizing the risks for health problems. Those difficulties can include osteoporosis, heart disease, and metabolic syndrome—which can be a precursor to cardiovascular disease.

Diet and lifestyle factors are essential to women’s health no matter what the age, but it becomes imperative to overall health and peace of mind during the years surrounding menopause.

Additional Women's Hormone Balance Resources:

Hormonal Support Transdermal Creams:

Life Flo's natural, paraben-free, hormonal topical skin cream formulas offer hormonal support in the years before, during, and after menopause.

ProgestaCare helps women supplement their progesterone levels. It can help to reduce the severity of PMS symptoms, counter-balances the effects of estrogen dominance that happens before menopause, (progesterone levels can drop up to ten years before menopause - when estrogen levels drop) and can help to lessen the effects of menopause.

ProgestaCare Complete provides not only natural progesterone but also Pregnenolone which balances women’s hormones and supports anti-aging and 7-Keto DHEA, which helps to improve health and anti-aging but is free of the hormone activity of normal DHEA.

Progesta Care Plus w/Phytoestrogens combines ProgestaCare's natural progesterone with the highest quality all natural phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are natural compounds derived from various plant sources, which exert estrogenic effects in the human body.

EstroCare is a natural alternative to estrogen supplementation, providing natural phytoestrogens for hormone balance.

ProgestaCare with Estriol provides natural progesterone cream with Estriol for support with menopause and post-menopause hormone replacement.

Hormonal Support Supplements:

Ocean's 3 Omega 3 Healthy Hormones by Garden of Life Supports hormonal and emotional health for women by providing all the benefits of a high potency Omega-3 supplement plus an amplified range of targeted benefits unmatched by ordinary Omega-3 formulations including a trio of clinically studied botanicals – Ashwagandha, Amla berry and Lifenol wild hops – noted for their positive effects on the hormonal and emotional health of women, as well as OmegaXanthin- a synergistic complex of three health-promoting compounds from the ocean, including fucoxanthin and astaxanthin, both powerful antioxidants.

Brevail for Breast and Hormone Health Brevail contains lignans, a natural compound, ingested in grains, beans, legumes, fruits, and vegetables throughout human history. Research suggests that our bodies use natural plant lignans, now sparse in the modern diet, to safely and gently buffer and balance potentially adverse effects of excess or toxic estrogens, established as the most well-known cause of certain breast problems and other hormone related health issues.

Herbal Menopause by Protocol for Life Balance is a natural blend of phytochemical extracts from the three herbs Phlomis umbrosa, Cynanchum wilfordii, and Angelica gigas Nakai. Each of these herbs has a long history of use by herbalists in Korea and China and this patented combination of extracts has more recently been clinically tested for its use in the management of menopausal symptoms.
