1. Adopt a ‘whole body’ approach
Treating the symptoms of menopause should be done on a holistic basis. It is vital that women accept the onset of menopause. Many see it as a threat to their womanhood and try to pretend it’s not happening. It marks the end of a woman’s fertility. In a lot of societies, women define themselves by their ability to bear children. When they enter menopause, they may regard themselves as less of a woman.
Denial will only make the symptoms worse because nothing is being done to treat them. That’s why when women enter menopause, they need to be able to acknowledge it.
Having accepted the onset of menopause, women need to view treatment as several different actions that combine to make one effective process. There is not one single path to follow, but rather a combination of approaches and remedies.
Reading up on what supplements to take and what diet they should follow is helpful. But women must also look at their overall lifestyle. No treatment is going to work properly if women don’t exercise, are subjected to extreme stress or don’t get enough sleep. A holistic approach will give the best results.
