Not fun at all. If we thought that the monthly menstrual cycle was challenging enough, then think again. Wait until menopause strikes. A time of change, and unexplained hot flushes can occur. Even though Sex and the City 2 is an American movie; yet Samantha was a perfect example of the inconvenience of experiencing hot flushes during menopause while on her PR trip in Abu Dhabi. How do you cope with this?
Natural medicine is fantastic. Healthy eating, exercising and sleeping well are critical essentials. Krill oil and Vitamin D are great for starters. Traditional medical alternatives such as HRT can also help.
With menopause come mood swings. So an understanding partner and caring family is the most essential support system. Regular exercise to keep those joints moving, blood checks for hormone and calcium level would help.
