Peri-menopause reframed

 

Peri-menopause, homeopathyPeri-menopause is something that happens to all women eventually. It can take a bit of navigating, but it responds beautifully to a natural approach and a little support from homeopathy and herbs, plus a focus on your nutrition.

When I look at my list of women role models and icons I realise one thing they have in common is that they are comfortable in their own skin,  unafraid to express themselves for who  they truly are.

I also realise that they continued being fabulous all through their life. They didn’t suddenly stop at menopause.

What I love about Deborah Harry

There is one woman at the top of my list of women who age well. Deborah Harry of Blondie.

I’ve been lucky enough to see Deborah Harry play live twice – once at LoveBox and again at the Isle of Wight Festival. She was just incredible to watch. She played ALL the Blondie hits from the 70s and 80s and totally owned the stage.

The crowd knew every word to every song and the atmosphere was amazing. She must have been sixty years old but she didn’t look it.

I remember thinking,

‘I hope I age as well as her!’

EARLY SIGNS OF peri-MENOPAUSE

Nobody really tells us the signs of peri-menopause. As hormones fluctuate and decline, cortisol (stress hormone) and insulin levels change in a way that lowers our metabolism and makes us put on weight, especially around the middle.

Signs of peri-menopause include:

  • mood swings
  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • memory problems
  • low libido
  • PMS

We think that our hormones will settle down as we get older, so when they don’t, it’s a bitof a shock.

CHANGE or OPPORTUNITY?

When we take a moment to think about it, symptoms are a just a signal from your body that change is under way. One way to re-frame those symptoms is that they offer a chance to re-invent ourselves.

It’s impossible to take anything for granted once we turn 40. Gone are the days when we can get away with ‘running on empty’ – staying up all night and surviving on toast, wine and chocolate for weeks on end. That might have been ok while we were in our twenties, but not any more.

5 ways to help ease your way through peri-menopause
  1. Eat more fresh food, organic wherever possible: more vegetables, protein and good fat.
  2. Take enjoyable exercise regularly.
  3. Drink as much water as humanly possible.
  4. Get more sleep, especially before midnight.
  5. Create more ‘down-time’.

These are all things you can do for yourself, but I’d also recommend a course of homeopathy to help balance your hormones and reduce any stress related symptoms you might have.

Homeopathy is helpful for the underlying causes of your symptoms. Herbs and superfoods cleanse, balance and support you through this time of hormonal change.

You’ll  soon find yourself sleeping better and waking with more energy. Any hormonal symptoms will calm down too.

“Tracy is a kind and warm person and I really enjoyed our sessions where she showed empathy and understanding to anything I came up with and I found it very helpful. Her holistic approach did not only tackle my immediate symptoms but also worked at increasing my general well-being, something I can feel even months after the treatment.”
