Symptoms of the Perimenopause

Symptoms of the Perimenopause

The menopause is a journey that is for sure. I know it was for me, but thankfully, I am at the other side now and l feel great. In my case the symptoms seemed to come one after the other rather than all together, which was a blessing. It started with anxiety when I was forty, that was the first symptom for me. Moving on then to hot flushes, where I was stripping in front of people. Then changes in the monthly cycle from no period for months to extremely heavy bleeds. Followed by sleep problems, anger, irritability, and frustration, it's no wonder I feel good now. To be free from the fluctuation of the moods and to be sleeping well at last is feels so good. Everyone is so different, some of you will begin with perimenopause symptoms in your early thirties but for most women it could be in your late forties.

There are many symptoms associated with the perimenopause. You may experience just one symptom at a time, one after the other like I did, or you may experience several together: hot flushes and night sweats. Anxiety, mood swings, sleep problems, low libido, or low energy. Anger, frustration, and irritability. You could have aches and pains in the joints and muscles. Your skin and hair can lack lustre. Bloating and constipation can be a problem too. Memory and cognitive problems are also possible. Vaginal dryness too, the list goes on.

Natural Remedies, a healthy diet, exercise, sleep, and stress reduction are all part of helping you deal with the symptoms. I took many different remedies on my journey to help deal with the various symptoms I went through. There are lots of new supplements on the market since then. I will talk about some of them next week.

Supplements to help hot flushes

A.Vogel Sage is possibly the most well-known supplement to relieve hot flushes and night sweats, it’s still the go to supplement for hot flushes today. You can choose herbal tincture or one a day A.Vogel Menoforce Sage Tablets, which most prefer. Up to date research shows that Sage is also beneficial for cognitive function and that is good to know as brain fog and sluggish memory is one of the common symptoms. It combines well with the A. Vogel Menopause Support Supplement to help with low energy and low mood.

For hormone balance, improved mood, energy, good skin, and intimate dryness, then Cleanmarine Menomin is a great place to start. I like it because it’s an all-in-one Omega 3, Phytonutrient and Vitamin Blend with Vitamins B1, B2, B6, to regulate hormonal activity. B12 to reduce tiredness and fatigue. As well as Soya Isoflavones, Folate and Biotin Plus, it contains Vitamin D to help maintain normal healthy bones. I get brilliant feedback about it. Comments I hear include: I just feel fantastic on it. My mood is brilliant. And, I can look at myself in the mirror again, my skin looks great. Most women love it, it’s worth taking a look at, see what you think.

I will go through a couple of other supplements that you could consider next week.

Let's get talking

I managed to get through the menopause journey by making some dietary and lifestyle changes, and taking various nutritional supplements as required. This approach may work for you too. But some of you might need to talk to a Nutritional Practitioner that specialises in women's health. This way you can sit down and have a personalised protocol that is suitable for you. We are all so different and sometimes this may be what is needed. It could be HRT and that's ok too. I think the main thing is to get talking to someone about it to see might work for you.
