4 Tips For Menopausal Health for Women

-

There comes a time when women are faced with a terrible reminder of their age: Menopause. Many have said that being menopausal is a challenge because of the various changes a woman has to go through. Besides hot flashes and migraines, a menopausal woman also has to worry about the increased risk of heart failure and osteoporosis. The good news is: there is something you can do about all these. How?

#1: Adjust Your Diet

It has been said that hot flashes are more severe for women who are overweight. This is why it’s important to ensure that you are fit and healthy. Start adjusting your diet to gradually prepare your body for the onset of hormonal imbalance. Get as much fruits and vegetables into your system – at least five servings per day. Avoid foods that are rich in fat and sugar, and cut back on your caffeine and alcohol intake. You should also remember that alcohol and caffeine increase your chances of developing osteoporosis.

#2: Exercise Regularly

Since you are aiming for a healthy and fit body, it helps to exercise regularly. You don’t have to exert too much effort – we know that you are not as fit and spry as you were during your younger years. Go out for regular walks, especially during the warm spring days. Avoid lazing about during the weekends, and find some active hobbies that you can do regularly.

#3: Take Your Vitamins and Minerals

Although it is a great idea to get your nutrients from natural sources, sometimes it is easier to boost your health with multi-vitamin and mineral supplements. These supplements assure that you get the dosage that you need to be healthy. Make sure that you take Calcium, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C regularly as they are good for your bones.

#4: De-stress

Migraine is often triggered by too much stress. High blood pressure is another effect of stress. This is why it’s important that you avoid stress as much as possible, especially during menopause. Learn to step back from the daily stress, and give yourself some “me” time. Your body will thank you for it.
