Ease For Peri-menopause and Menopause Cycles

Co-Contributor: Kawadah

Peri-menopause is the cycle in which a woman’s body is preparing for menopause and can start as early as 30 years old and can last for several years.  Menopause is when a woman stops menstruating completely and it has three stages, Peri-menopause, Pre-menopause, and finally Menopausal cycle.   They are not diseases, just transistions into a woman’s next stage in life, and should be embraced as the Lord’s will for our life.  As a youth I rarely heard of solutions that helped women through the changes that will occur during these times, but, thanks be to the God of our forefathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, a pathway has been opened for us to receive wisdom and understanding; therefore, we may have comfort and stability while going through these life cycles.

Peri-Menopausal and Menopausal

Healthy Lifestyle Regimen

 

Calcium: Low-fat dairy products, sardines, almonds, fortified orange juice, and mineral water, also if chosen a supplement be sure it has the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) symbol on the bottle to make sure vitamin s are not “lead contaminated. Your daily total for calcium should be 1200 mg, including both supplements and food sources.

Fiber: Is to promote healthy regular bowel movements, and prevent constipation. Eat food like oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium. And whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts, beans and vegetables, such as cauliflower, green beans and potatoes. Yummy! Eating like this can also help lower cholesterol and lower blood glucose too!

Water: Critical for menopausal women to hydrate cells, moisturize skin, and eliminate toxins from the body. Try to get at least a quart and a half a day. (If you measure it into a large bottle or pitcher at the beginning of the day, you can see your progress and try to finish it up by bedtime).

Fresh Fruit and Veggies: Colorful fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. If eat unsweetened fruits instead of sugary desserts, and boost your vegetables while you decrease your intake of red meats, you are moving in a direction that will help you lose weight, keep your blood glucose stable, and nourish every cell without clogging arteries. Awesome!

Stress: Less stress or NO stress, sleep and moderate exercising help women a great deal!

Righteousness: Keep in mind, righteous behavior should go before any and all desires of good health and healing.[Proverbs 3:7,8]

  1. For women who are in their early 30’s and starting to feel the symptoms of Peri-menopause, I thought I would let you know that Wholefoods just came out with an herbal blended pill called “Peri-Pause” it’s a new product and worth a try for a little comfort.
