When a woman goes 12 months without a menstrual period, she is diagnosed as having gone through menopause. Women in North America usually reach menopause at 51. Although menopause is a natural biological process, it has physical and emotional symptoms that can disrupt sleep, lower one’s energy, or affect emotional well-being. As part of the transition to menopause, thermogenetic changes occur and influence body temperature which cascades to affect the thyroid, adrenals, hypothalamus, pituitary, and pineal gland. As a result of these overall changes, women during their menopause (and perimenopause) can experience symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleep problems, mood changes, decreased sex drive, joint and muscle aches, memory lapses, weight gain, headaches, and decreased bone density. A natural approach to menopause usually starts with addressing the four pillars of health (water, sleep, nutrition, and exercise) with the help of plant medicine. Learn more by watching this video.
