Are you struggling to understand what is going on with your body? Your periods are changing, you have weight gain in places you have never seen it before, you feel different?
Each phase of the journey can create a variety of symptoms as your hormones go through a process of fluctuation, until they settle into a new pattern. We have actually had many transitions through our life usually we have been prepared for these, like transitioning into puberty or being pregnancy. Our mothers and midwives gave us knowledge on what to expect and what to do, to prepare. Unfortunately when it comes to menopause we can be very unprepared, we just don’t really know what is happening, until we start to experience symptoms.
Menopause is actually 12 months after the end of your cycling periods, the average age is around 52.
Peri-menopause is the beginning of the transition and this can start in your late 30’s early forties. It is a completely natural biological process and at times we can experience some symptoms from this change in hormone levels.
For some woman symptoms can be very uncomfortable and even unmanageable. These may include;
- Irregular periods
- Vaginal dryness
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Sleep problems – Insomnia, onset insomnia
- Mood changes, mood swings
- Weight gain especially around the middle and slowed metabolism
- Blood sugar imbalances
- Anxiety and depression
- Thinning hair and dry skin
- Loss of breast fullness, sore breasts
- Thyroid imbalances
You may visit your GP and find that the only solutions offered are sleeping pills, anti-depressants and hormone replacement therapy.
Kaz von Heraud-Parker created the Reset Lab and “The Menopause Journey” to help reset these symptoms by rebalancing underlying route causes using natural solutions.
When we rebalance the body it helps us minimise our menopause symptoms, and also can reset our health so that we set ourselves up for living our best life.
Most woman will experience some symptoms, and others will experience these to a level of complete discomfort.
Dropping hormone levels, toxic burden, stress causing adrenal imbalances and other underlying causes can create more server symptoms. We can use Functional Medicine testing to look at your biochemistry and understand how to provide a personal treatment and lifestyle plan to help reduce these symptoms.
Herbal remedies can also help to minimise the effects of dropping hormone levels. These remedies can tailor made to meet your specific requirements.
