Recommendation for Menopause
Lifestyle Recommendation for Menopause
Lifestyle Changes give you more benefit in your treatment .Due to these lifestyle changes you can take many steps to reduce your symptoms without taking hormones:
- Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and spicy foods
- Dress lightly and in layers
- Eat soy foods
- Get plenty of exercise
- Perform Kegel exercises daily to strengthen the muscles of your vagina and pelvis
- Practice slow, deep breathing whenever a hot flash starts to come on (try taking six breaths per minute)
- Remain sexually active
- See an acupuncture specialist
- Try relaxation techniques such as yoga, tai chi, or meditation
- Use water-based lubricants during sexual intercourse
Dietary Recommendations for Menopause: Diet also plays a key role in balancing hormones during and after menopause. Soy products are not the only source of plant estrogens, however. Another equally healthful source of phytoestrogens are:
- "Lignans," compounds found in a variety of whole foods including grains and cereals, dried beans and lentils, flaxseed, sunflower seeds and peanuts,
- Vegetables such as asparagus, sweet potatoes, carrots, garlic and broccoli and
- Fruits such as pears, plums, strawberries, Watermelon, Pomegranate
- Milk& milk products used to obtain adequate calcium to maintain body.
- Herbs and spices such as brahmi, vacha, shankhpuspi, Ashoka, Satavari, kumari nutmeg, turmeric and licorice also have estrogenic properties. In spices you can use specially Vata spices its alleviates Vata Dosha properly.
It turns out that if you simply eat a varied diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and dried beans you will be ingesting a rich phytoestrogen feast in your daily cuisine! Variety and moderation are important because just as too much estrogen is unhealthy after menopause, too much phytoestrogen may also be dangerous. This danger can be avoided by getting your phytoestrogens naturally from a variety of whole foods, rather than from supplements or concentrated tablets.
Yogasanas for Menopause:
Yoga reduces the effects of menopause’s hormonal changes by balancing the endocrine system. It smoothens out the hormonal and glandular changes that take place during this stage of life. The regular practice of all the categories of poses -- standing, sitting, lying down, backbends, forward bends, twists, and inverted (upside down) poses -- stimulates and activates all the glands, organs, tissues and cells of the body. Yoga’s inverted poses are particularly important during menopause as they have a powerful effect on the neuroendocrine system, allowing fresh, oxygenated blood to flow to the glands in the head and neck.
A woman’s body is quite capable of adjusting to the hormonal changes that occur when the ovaries slow down. If all our other glands are functioning well, they will, in most cases, continue to produce all the hormones a woman needs for the rest of her life.
