menopause and depression

menopause and depression interlinked…

Most women believe  that menopause and depression are almost interlinked, in fact when asked they are quick to  voice their concerns about its devastating effects.  Menopause or “the change”, as it sometimes called, is just nature’s way of letting you know a few things. Firstly you’re at the end of the reproductive period…which means you can say goodbye to the worry of unplanned or wanted pregnancy. Secondly like any stage of your growth to perfection, you need to make sure you’re getting the right diet.

menopause and depression affeact everyone’s differently…

Because everyone’s different, your body reacts to what you think, do, and ultimately eat. So if you’re feeling the onset of your menopause and depression here’s my essential guide to help you sail through without feeling like aliens have taken control of your mind and body!

I can’t’ say it enough times… what you eat, do, and the way you think are the keys to your health. If you have a stressful or active lifestyle your body must have adequate nourishment, to not only sustain it but also to allow for any sudden changes-negative or positive including the change that causes menopause and depression.

menopause and depression life changing events…

If you are doing all those right then generally your menopause should be a walk in the park. But the problem is most of us are rushing through life at breakneck speed with not much more than a preservative, package at mealtimes. This means that if we’re faced with any major life change our bodies do not have enough nutrients to sustain the transformation.  Add to that important life changing events like puberty, menopause or andropause (male menopause) and it’s no wonder your body acts like it’s in a state of perpetual rebellion and menopausal depression set in.

Having said all this, our lifestyle in the 21st century has given us a technological boost. This gaggle of gadgets meant to improve our lives and minimise our workload has also increased our spending and decreased our prospects in the work place. With job losses and the economy in free fall, our stressful days have become longer and our peace-filled nights shorter.  So we try to counteract our decrease in income with an increase in alcohol and high fat, salt, low/no protein comfort food. it is no wonder then that menopause and depression have become synonymous.

menopause and depression challenges…

Women going through the menopause perhaps face the most challenging times in history. We are forced to stay in our jobs longer, produce more and still have time for families not to mention be all things beautiful and sexy to our partners. So if you’re at this phase, hats off to all you beautiful babes.

menopause and depression pre-emptive strike…

Here are my recommendations for getting your life and health back on track. For a pre-emptive strike against menopause and depression, hot flushes, night sweats, panic attacks and the general ickiness that leaves your head swimming and you feeling allergic to your own body follow the instructions below.

 

Vitamins to Relieve Menopause  and Depression Symptoms:

Foods rich in calcium vitamin E, D protein, calcium, magnesium and pantothenic acid are recommended to boost your immune system, relieve nervousness, irritability, sleepless nights, bouts of  menopausal depressions and migraines.

Calcium: Bone loss is a common problem for women going through menopause so it’s important to take a calcium supplement, around 1000 mg daily, added to 500- 750 mg magnesium to help improve absorption. A decrease of estrogen is usually accompanied by more trips to the bathroom and you may find yourself needing to pee at the most inconvenient times.

Grab this vitamin if you like reclining on the couch instead of basking in the grey skies of England.  All your indoor babes take note, your home may be your castle but spending too much time there wl leave you with next to no vitamin D in your blood!

menopause and depression and exercise…

Another natural way to relieve the symptoms of menopause and depression involves getting proper exercise. Although aerobic exercises are great for this, it is important not to underestimate the important activity of walking.  Many women suffering from menopause and depression have seen success with yoga.  Although there are some disputes  to the claim, there are a number of yoga postures which claims state that they specifically target many menopause symptoms, including hot flashes.

Always remember to consult with your doctor before taking any type of supplement to make sure there aren’t any potentially harmful drug interactions between your vitamins and any prescription drugs you may be taking.
