Why would so many women benefit from getting their men Prostate 1 to reduce the symptoms of prostate enlargement?

Not just because they care for their men’s health and want them to be happier and healthier, but also because a healthier prostate gland for the husband means fewer night time trips to the loo and therefore less interruption of their own night’s sleep!

What is Menopause?

What is Menopause

Signs, Symptoms, and Treatments 

Menopause is not an illness, it’s a transition; part of aging.  You cannot stop the process and revert to your twenties, but you can make the transition more pleasant.

By definition, a woman reaches menopause when she has not had her period for at least 12 consecutive months, and can no longer conceive.  The process leading up to menopause can last a few years.  This process is the body’s progressive decline in producing reproductive hormones.

It is not unusual to hear a woman claim that she feels bathed in sweat. It is rarely possible to counteract this feeling with a dip in the sea. Most women consider themselves lucky if they have the opportunity of a cool shower.

Fortunately, these awkward symptoms do not persist for too long. Women are often embarrassed if it happens in company, as it is a visible sign of getting older. Sometimes women live in dread of hot flashes, in which case they may be inviting trouble as the body sometimes reacts to one’s thoughts.

Messed-up Hormones or Harmonious Menopause?

The Function of Menopause

Menopause is a period in a woman’s life when her body undergoes many significant changes.

Though it’s often perceived as a disease, the real purpose of menopause is simply to prevent pregnancy at a time in a woman’s life when her body no longer has the capacity to support such a transformation.

The symptoms of menopause are only felt if there is an imbalance in the body. But with today’s hectic pace of life and high levels of stress, 88% of North American women suffer from menopause’s most prevalent symptom: the famous “hot flashes.”
