Menopause Is Like A Rainbow

February 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 196

Menopause is a process. There's no going around it, there's only going through it. And we're all going to go through it. Think of it like an arc or a "rainbow" of sorts. It has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning "Perimenopause" is when fertility slowly declines and hormone production decreases. Declining hormones cause many menopause symptoms you may be familiar with like hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, irregular periods as well as depression, anxiety,foggy thinking, insomnia, moodswings, thinning hair, loss of libido...the list goes on and on. The middle "Menopause" itself only happens once. It officially occurs one-year after your last period. The end "Postmenopause" is the glorious time when you truly come into your own. A mature woman is a work of art crafted by her experiences and her own inner resources. This is your opportunity to refashion your purpose in life.

I challenge you to embrace your menopause experience as a whole and develop an understanding of the entire arc of this life transition. This journey brings gifts at each stage. There are treasures for us to discover at every point, opportunities that can be found now that aren't available to us at any other time in our life. It's up to us each one of us to find these treasures, seize the opportunities to grow and expand, and discover the value in the life stage we are in right now.

During this transition it's important to remember that you are not a "victim" of menopause and it's certainly not a "disease" or a disorder that requires a visit to the Doctor and prescription medication for treatment, as many would have you believe. It's a passage in every woman's life that takes place over a period of time. Each one of us is unique and what we will each experience during our transition is likewise unique. Menopause is one of those instances where what's easiest and natural is also best. I recommend and encourage you to include a daily all-natural herbal supplement that's a "full-spectrum" blend, so it will alleviate a broad range of menopause symptoms. I also challenge you to make needed changes in your diet. By supporting your health through good nutrition it will positively influence your hormonal balance - which is critical in managing your menopausal symptoms. Lastly, move your body! Even moderate exercise can have a positive impact on your menopause experience. Remember "a body in motion STAYS in motion."

By adopting a few simple lifestyle changes you can take control of your menopause experience and actually enjoy it. Midlife is the time to gather our gifts, to reclaim the parts of ourselves that are stuck in the past. It's time to let go of those old patterns that are not serving us well, and release them so that all our energies can flow in the same positive direction. It's time to use our insight to become aware, our courage to be able to see, and our wisdom to take charge of our own menopause experience.

Valerie Martinez is a nutritional health consultant who (together with her business partner Carine Horner -- a holistic nutritionist), is dedicated to helping women just like you learn how to achieve relief from their menopausal symptoms naturally and safely vs. the outdated traditional approach of HRT (hormone replacement therapy).
