Menopause Symptoms

  • Dr. Low Dog's Ashwagandha Tonic Tea

    If you missed Dr. Low Dog's webinar on Menopause Solutions yesterday, you missed this soothing recipe that's great for a variety of symptoms of menopause, or just to help you sleep better. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, which Dr. Low Dog says is relaxing, can help with night sweats, mental fog, aches and pains, even boosting the immune system. "Drink this at night, before you got to bed," she says, "and I promise you’ll be sleeping better."

    Ashwagandha Tonic Tea

    •1-2 tsp powdered Ashwagandha
    •2 cups milk (dairy, soy or almond)
    •1 Tbsp raw sugar (or honey or agave nectar)
    •1/8 tsp cardamom

    Simmer ashwagandha in milk on low heat for 15 minutes. Add the sugar and cardamom and stir until well mixed. Turn off heat. Drink 1 cup 1-2 times day.

  • 5 Myths About Menopause

    Myth #1 | Menopausal Discomforts Don’t Start until Your Period Stops

    Hormone changes can begin as early as the late 30s or early 40s. Many women begin to experience night sweats, hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, mood swings, headaches, changes in sex drive and changes in the menstrual cycle long before their periods stop.

    Myth #2 | Hot Flashes Are Due to Low Estrogen Levels

    Hot flashes can occur in women with high estrogen levels (during pregnancy) or with fluctuating estrogen levels. Other triggers include low progesterone, low testosterone, high follicle-stimulating hormones, surges of luteinizing hormones, increased cortisol and low beta-endorphins and antioxidants.

    Myth #3 | Low Sex Drive Is a Normal Part of Aging

    Many perimenopausal and menopausal women experience lower sex drive, but others find their sexual appetite increases with age. Low or high estrogen, low progesterone and low testosterone levels may contribute to a decreased sex drive, while stress, life changes and illness can also be factors.

    Myth #4 | Menopause Means Hot Flashes

    Hot flashes are a common discomfort in menopause, but they are neither universal nor the only health concern. Some women never experience hot flashes but may experience anxiety, depression, foggy thinking, headaches, insomnia, weight gain, water retention and vaginal dryness.
