What can help menopause?
Why is it that the menopause is often viewed as an illness to be cured when it’s a natural stage in life? No wonder it fills us with dread when it’s been labelled this way. If we think about it on a more positive note, this is a time of liberation as we move away from the childbearing era into exciting new beginnings.
Not all menopause is bad and if you are lucky then you might not have many symptoms or they may not be severe. However, for some contending with hot flushes, night sweats and sleep disturbances, feeling emotionally low and physically exhausted can be commonplace.
This time of change is not necessarily exclusive to women. The male menopause is becoming more widely acknowledged by the medical community with men experiencing similar symptoms due to declining levels of testosterone.
