更年期是怎么回事？What is menopause?
Menopause is a biologically natural process that marks the end of a woman’s ability to reproduce. During early menopause, corresponding hormones such as estrogen and progesterone begin to decline, and the ovaries in the womb begin to stop producing sex hormones. With the cessation of ovulation, menstruation will also end.
Menopause, defined as the 12 months after the last menstrual period, usually occurs after the age of 45, is when a woman’s body undergoes hormonal changes due to aging.
What is Menopausal Syndrome?
Refers to a group of syndromes that occur in women before and after menopause (usually at the age of 45 to 55), mainly due to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, accompanied by neuropsychological symptoms, usually caused by fluctuations or decreases in sex hormones.
Menopause affects all parts of the body. Symptoms of hot flushes and night sweats are common, accompanied by emotional instability and irritability. Feeling tired, depressed, or lacking in energy is normal. In addition to headaches and anxiety, some women may suffer from depression.
Menopause can further cause heart palpitations, insomnia, weight gain, muscle pain, joint pain, hair loss, dry itchy skin and dry eyes are all symptoms of menopause.
Postmenopausal women are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis, which is closely related to a drop in estrogen. Because during the transition period of menopause, the decline of estrogen will make “bone erosion” greater than “bone formation”.
Does menopause pose a risk of physical deterioration?
Beyond the physical and mental discomfort, menopause is nothing to worry about. The symptoms of menopause are different for each woman. Many factors can affect fundamental changes in the body, such as health, diet, lifestyle, mental state, etc. But even women with the most severe menopause can find ways to get back to as normal a life as possible.
Can menopause symptoms be cured naturally?
Many factors can affect the severity of menopausal symptoms. In addition to factors that are inherently unchangeable, there are various alternative treatments and behavioral modifications that can relieve symptoms.
A balanced diet low in sugar, fat, and carbohydrates can relieve menopausal symptoms. Soy products like tofu contain isoflavones, plant-based compounds that act like estrogen and can help relieve menopausal symptoms. Usually we recommend avoiding salt intake and eating more foods rich in calcium and vitamin D, such as spinach, kale, soybeans, and some fish, such as sardines and salmon.
Great sources of calcium include milk and other dairy products such as hard cheeses, cottage cheese, and yogurt, as well as fruits and green vegetables such as kale and cauliflower.
Regular physical activity of at least 150 minutes per week is recommended. This means exercising 3 to 5 times a week, and making sure to allow enough recovery time between each exercise.
Mental health is just as important. Meditation is very helpful for emotional stability and inner peace. Getting enough sleep also helps the body recover and build strength.
