Menopause

When your ovaries slow and finally stop releasing eggs and your production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone have fallen off, you’re experiencing menopause. This multi-year process affects every woman differently, but there are common, discomforting effects for women in their mid-30s to late-50s, including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, insomnia, and weight gain.

Some women have mild enough symptoms to combat these problems with lifestyle changes like layered clothing, personal lubricant, occasional melatonin use, and keeping a close eye on diet and exercise.

Other women achieve natural balance using bio-identical hormones, created from plants, to closely match the hormones your body should naturally produce.

In addition to the discomfort, a woman’s risk for osteoporosis and heart conditions sharply goes up as menopause changes many aspects of their bodies. Protective omega-3 essential fatty acids and CoQ10 help protect your heart, while vitamin D, magnesium, and dietary calcium are keys to staving off osteoporosis.

Exercise, of course, is also vital to your health, and strength training can help keep your bones strong instead of thin and brittle.
