Hot flashes and other menopause symptoms
During the menopausal transition, the ovaries produce lower levels of natural sex hormones.
Among other things, this alteration has a ripple effect on the part of the brain where the body’s temperature is regulated. This area of the brain is misled into believing that the body is overheating, which leads to hot flashes, night sweats and even palpitations.
In very severe cases, some women can experience up to 57 hot flashes every day! That's one every 25 minutes day and night. You're hot and uncomfortable, drenched in sweat most of the time. Going out is unthinkable!
Women can also become moody, tearful, anxious and may experience fits of anger inexplicable to them and the people around them. You can feel like a different person. It’s as if one symptom creates or worsens another.
For how long will this continue, and do all women experience these signs of menopause?
It can last for 3 to 8 years and no, you won’t suffer continuously with these signs during this period. Even though 64% of women do declare one or more severe symptoms, some sail through it effortlessly.
It is generally acknowledged that women who feel “down” and emotionally out of balance experience menopausal symptoms more intensely than women who are relaxed and happy.
- Eat healthy natural foods
- Breathe deeply
- Drink lots of water
- Spend time outside every day.
- Exercise regularly
- Do the things you enjoy like painting, listening to music, reading, dancing, gardening, spending time with people who make you laugh…do something just for you.
- Avoid coffee, tea, alcohol, cigarettes and spicy food as they also tend to exacerbate the symptoms.
Sage has been put to the test
A.Vogel MenoForce tablets is a product manufactured from the sage plant. This fresh plant extract was clinically tested on women suffering from hot flashes (mean age 56 years) and the results were amazing!
Two weeks after the women started taking the MenoForce tablets their daily occurrence of hot flashes had decreased by 30%.
After 4 weeks the rate had decreased by 50%, and after 8 weeks by almost 64%.
It is evident that, unlike pharmaceutical medication, MenoForce is not an immediate cure for hot flashes, but leads to gradual improvement naturally. There are no side-effects and you don’t prevent the natural transformation of your body.
