Change of Life-Menopause

Filed in Gather Family Essential by on August 31, 2008 0 Comments

Menopause, or the permanent end of menstruation and fertility, is a natural biological process, not a medical illness.

Even so, the physical and emotional symptoms of menopause can disrupt your sleep, sap your energy and – at least indirectly – trigger feelings of sadness and loss.

It doesn't have to be. You don't have to have:

* annoying mood swings including crying jags
* being prone to anger most of the time
* hot flashes during the day
* night sweats and wet sheets at night
* an inability to focus
* a significant loss of short-term memory
* uncomfortable gas and bloating
* abnormal weight gain

You can ease into it and you can breeze through it.

Are you experiencing?

Tiredness?

Loss of sleep?

Feeling chilled?

Anxiety and/or panic attacks?

Muscles achy?

Mental sluggishness?

Moody?

These can also be symptoms of a sluggish thyroid.

If you aren't sure what your symptoms are from, it's best to contact your medical adviser.

Self diagnosis is often way off base from the true problem.
