When your body is going through change, you may want to find natural alternatives to modern medicine. Your body and mind will require extra care and support as you navigate this journey. There are many switches you can make to your lifestyle to make the journey of menopause easier. We promote natural methods to help you feel balanced and more like you.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
When your body is working harder, it is important to nourish it with the energy that it needs. Focus on your intake of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as increasing the amount of food rich in the following properties -
Calcium - To support strong bone health as menopausal women can experience bone fragility in conjunction with the effects of ageing. Try eating more curly kale, okra, and spinach.
Magnesium- Great for supporting heart health and encouraging good sleep and a healthy mental wellbeing. Add almonds, pumpkin seeds, and cashews into your diet for support.
Vitamin D - As you age and go through menopause, your skin does not produce Vitamin D as efficiently so it is important to aid your body with supplements and Vitamin D rich food (e.g. egg yolks and oily fish).
Phytoestrogens - The natural compounds can mimic the effects of estrogen in the body and help manage hormone levels and decrease negative symptoms. Try to add foods such as tofu, sesame seeds, and apples into your diet.
This does not mean strenuous exercise, especially if you are not feeling your best. Simple exercise such as daily walking can have many benefits on the body whilst going through change. Research shows that daily exercise promotes the following -
- Better quality of sleep
- Improved energy levels
- Increased metabolism
- Healthier joints and bones
- Decreased stress levels
All of the above can be affected whilst the body and mind are navigating menopause. By taking part in daily exercise, you can help minimise the impact of hormonal changes.
