The One Thing REALLY Makes Menopause Unbearable (And How To STOP It)

Self

Do your menopause symptoms overwhelm you?

Women hit a stage of life (usually around 45-55) and it begins.

The mood swings. The sleeplessness. The vaginal dryness.

And let's not forget about those annoying hot flashes.

Sound familiar?

Menopause is natural and normal part of life and your menstrual cycle and it hits all women at some point.

Like your period, menopause affects everyone differently.

So if you are one of the approximately 20% of women who find that menopause is drastically affecting your life (and not for the better!), don't worry.

In our latest Quickies video, Expert John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, explains the causes of your menopausal symptoms and one SUPER helpful way to stop them from ruining what should be a normal phase of life.

The key to relieving your discomfort is to relax.

I know, that seems too obvious. Too simple.

The cause of all the symptoms your feel is a hormonal balance in your body, and that is greatly exacerbated by one thing: stress.

The more we are stressed, the more the adrenal gland in our bodies mess with our emotions, creating an even stronger feeling of being hormonally "out of whack". 

So try to beat your stress and relax.

Replenish and heal your adrenal gland with natural herbs.

Work on stress management techniques.

Find some time to let your stresses leave your body by doing things like meditation, having a massage, or practicing tai chi.

Do whatever YOU need to do to help deal with the normal stresses of everyday life.

Menopause is part of life. It doesn't have to control you.
