All women agree with me when I say that their hormones – or rather their hormonal system – are much more complex than a man’s. Unfortunately for you women, in most cases your hormones, do not improve over time. In my opinion, the biggest problem arises when women approach menopause, in other words, during the perimenopausal phase. Perimenopause is a stage that precedes menopause by a few years. According to several medical sites, this phase begins when a woman is around 40 to 45 years old, but with the influence of the modern world, a number of women will start to experience symptoms as early as ages 30 to 35. The gap between the statistics of our grandparents and those of today’s women is mainly due to the fact that the world in which we live has changed a lot, while we in return have evolved very little. Hot flashes, mood changes, weight gain and irregular menstrual cycles are quite unpleasant, so here are a few tricks to help you out:
- Rest and optimize the quality of your sleep
- Eat well by reducing your sugar intake and increasing your consumption of vegetables, healthy fats, and proteins
- Take a good Omega-3 supplement
- Use a good blend of adaptogenic plants, such as Adrenergik, if necessary
- Learn to relax
If you are already following all this advice and your symptoms are not improving, it might be time to consult a professional.
