5 ways to survive menopause
I am 44 years old. I have not yet had the pleasure of going through menopause. I have heard so many horror stories and I am not looking forward to it. Some of the symptoms include: absence of menstruation, breast discomfort, depression, dry mouth, frequent headaches, frequent urge to urinate, bladder leakage, irritability, night sweats, mental exhaustion, and if that is not enough moodiness. Like us women have not already had the pleasure of birth, monthly periods and cramps now we get to look forward to menopause.
- See your doctor: Do not take the over the counter menopause medications unless you consult your doctor a lot of these are not good for you. See what your doctor recommends as far as supplements.
- Meditation: Start a Yoga class or meditation class to help with the mood swings. Take time each day even if it is 5 minutes to relax drink and free your mind.
- Eat Healthily: Increase your calcium, drink herbal teas, eat more fish, start a low carb diet. Eat smaller meals more often.
- NightSweats: There is no easy way to deal with night sweats. Find a cooling Gel pillow and some water resistant sheets. Dress in layers.
- Poise: Bladder Leakage happens to women of all ages. 1 in 3 women experiences bladder leakage. Women have enough problems to worry about we do not need to worry about bladder leakage. We can not let menopause take us down. We still need to be active without the worry of bladder leakage. Poise Liners are specially designed for bladder leakage. and are #1.
