Are you a female having hot flashes? Mood swings? Night Sweats? Urine Problems? Insomnia? Vaginal Dryness? Decrease Sexual Desire? Stress? Tiredness? And Fatigue?
All these symptoms are because of a process that occurs overtime, and it is called PERIMENOPAUSE a transition period to MENOPAUSE, which is the absence of the menstrual period for 12 months.
It is a time in woman’s life, where her fertility function ceases.
It can start as early as 30 or as late 60 years old.
Usually it is related to other health problems like weight gain, osteoporosis, heart diseases and high blood pressure.
There is fluctuation during the perimenopause period in the female’s hormones in the body, like Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone which are responsible for most of the problems that women face during that transition.
Several remedies can be used, some are herbal, like red clover, dong quai or black cohosh.
Others like Bioidentical hormone therapy which are hormones derived from plants prepared individually for patients at Compounding Pharmacies.
Another remedy is to stay healthy using modified lifestyle which includes nutritious diet, physical activity and stress management skills.
Mostly combining multiple remedies are much better for optimum health and alleviation of perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.
Learn more about food intolerance:
Food can be medicine or can be a toxin to the body.
A very high percentage of people suffer from food intolerance (non allergic food hypersensitivity) which can produce multiple symptoms like fluid retention, weight gain,acne and other skin problems, headaches, anxiety, bloating and more.
The continuous consumption of certain foods to which you have intolerance to, weakens your resistance to many common illnesses and conditions. A weak defence enables illnesses to develop and take hold of your body.
If you have food intolerance you may be able to eat small amounts of the offending foods without trouble.
Once a threshold is reached by the body to digest the offending food the body starts reacting and triggering some diseases to form like autoimmune thyroiditis, autoimmune joint diseases and there might be a relationship between food intolerance and dementia like Alzheimer’s disease.
Causes of food intolerance may include:
•stress or psychological factors
•food additives like sulfites used to preserve dried food and nitrites used in meat preservation
•Food poisoning caused by parasites, toxins and bacteria
•Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic condition that can cause cramping, constipation and
•Celiac disease is a digestive condition triggered by eating gluten a protein found in wheat and other grains.
If you have a reaction after eating a particular food there is a specific test that can identify the different foods that your body is unable to digest and process properly.
Once you identify those foods, you will have to stop eating them for a certain period of time, which after that, your body will forget how to react to them and you will be able in some circumstances to eat those foods again and no longer have a reaction.
