Coping with Menopause with Naturopathy

By Stella Richard

Menopause is a biochemical process which takes place in the body of a woman at a certain age towards the end of her fertile years. This means that her hormone levels begin to decline and the woman begins to experience insomnia, anxiety, hot flashes, depressions and heart palpitations. Conventional and allopathic medicine based treatment typically involve the consumption of synthetic hormone replacement drugs, antidepressants and even birth control pills. While these drugs may contribute to the woman’s ability to cope with the hormonal changes, they are also known to have a lot of side effects with respect to unwanted weight gain, dominance of estrogens and even risking the occurrence of heart diseases, stroke and breast cancer among women.

Symptoms of Menopause

The most common symptoms of menopause are anxiety, insomnia and heart palpitations. After running some blood tests if you notice increased FSH level, and a difference in estrogens, progesterone and cortisol  levels you are most likely en route a menopause.

Women who are experiencing these symptoms also tend to have decreased adrenal reserve. This is typically stress induced because during a woman’s fertile years, her adrenal glands are usually busy pumping out cortisol that help her cope with stress instigators in her life. With the depleting adrenal glands later in life, a woman moves into menopause with a relatively low reserve.

Opting to Employ Naturopathic Medicine to Cope with Menopause

Every Naturopathic Doctor in Vancouver focuses on treating the adrenal glands of a woman who is menopausal by using natural herbs such as Ashwaganda, Siberian Ginseng, and Liquorice. It is the primary goal of the physicians to gain a balance with the hormones so that the woman is able to remain comfortable through this phase by decreasing the intensity of the symptoms.

Since this condition is unavoidable, the only thing one can do is ensure that there is no discomfort experienced by the woman during this phase. Instead of opting of invasive and allopathic treatment methods which have a number of side effects, herbal and organic treatment regimens are known to have positive effects on one’s health without the risk of any other side effects or complications.

Under a naturopathic treatment plan, every menopausal woman is expected to follow a customized and individualized dietary plan that focuses on organic whole foods complemented with a homeopathic remedy plan. Some naturopathy physicians also offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to effective results.

Menopausal women are recommended to adopt a holistic and natural lifestyle for best results of these treatment plans. This would include regular physical exercise, eating healthy and unprocessed foods and complying with the demands of your physician to help them help you reduce your symptoms and ensure a comfortable transition into this new phase of your life.
