There is no magic cure for peri-menopause or menopause symptoms. However, you can feel empowered to self-manage your symptoms and regain control of your mood, emotions and the physical side effects.
In 2001 following an extensive research program (The Million Women Study MWS), it was widely reported that mainstream hormone replacement therapy or HRT had potential side effects including increased risk of heart disease and some cancers. This revelation was followed by thousands of women around the world looking for alternative solutions to manage their symptoms such as:
. Hot flushes
. Mood swings
. Continence issues
. Reduced libido
. Stress, anxiety and more.
I have been reviewing some statistics on complementary therapies for peri-menopause, menopause and PMS.
The report by M. Taylor 'Complimentary and Alternative Medicine and Menopause' (www.glowm.com) makes a number of interesting comparisons with the nature based products that have been used for many years.
Results on each of the traditional remedies such as Black Cohosh, Dong Quai, Red Clover, and other phytoestrogens reveal conflicting and varying evidence, with minimal improvement in symptoms, and some trials were not controlled or validated against placebo trials.
The various studies discussed in the peer reviewed report reveal inconsistencies in trials which are typically small samples held for short duration and which don't always follow standard protocols.
However, the report does give us some comforting news!
Managing menopausal vasometer symptoms can be achieved with the following results:
. Relaxation - reduces symptoms by 22%
. Muscle relaxation technique - reduces symptoms by 55%
. Reflexology - reduces symptoms by 33%
. Mindfulness - reduces symptoms by 40%
You will be interested to know that guided visualisation, mindfulness and muscle relaxation have been included in my meditation classes over the past 6 years.
All massage and beauty treatments at The Aroma Coterie include, mindfulness, meditation and reflexology techniques.
Everyone's situation is unique and depends on a number of individual factors. An important component is a healthy, balanced diet and an exercise program that is appropriate for you.
I wish to support you to gain further relief from peri-menopause, menopause or pms symptoms.
