What's the menopause really about?
Having gone through the menopause early at 27 and been on HRT for 13 years I decided that I kinda like to know who I really was and as hormones dictate who you are I decided it was time to get to know the real me.
I dived straight back in with mood swings, weight gain and hot flashes, the night sweats were the worst and really ponged, being vegetarian very surprising why was I smelling so toxic?
I realised that 13 years of taking synthetic hormones with toxic. No wonder hrt increases the risk of cancer.
So I set about detoxing I used crystals in the form of lepidolite to control the night sweats, I drink sage tea, I reduced alcohol later giving up completely most importantly I realised that the Hot Flashes which I renamed power surges were actually an indication of anxiety and if anything made me even vaguely anxious I got a hot flash - my body was being a barometer for anxiety.
I also strongly feel that this is the time that our bodies choose to detox so that we move forward into the next stage of our lives without the toxins we've accumulated over the previous year's
This is probably the most valuable piece of information this is what makes us "Old sages" this is what makes us wise because we realise we won't take that shit anymore from whoever and in whatever form and the Groovy thing is that we are then empowered to live a Charmed life ... surrounded by situations and people who we respect and who respect us - because we have changed our vibration and now send out only positive behaviour behaviour.
I think this is why cougars are so called because as a 40 or 50.something we actually become shit hot in bed as well. We know our bodies and yes, we might need a bit more warming up, but men love a bit of playing around with coconut oil or olive oil as it increases the sensation and shows a confident, sexy woman.who doesn't just agree to sex, but proactively embraces her sexuality, her curves and eho knows how to use them and takes her time to please her man and herself. T.I. double GRR!
There are mgmt phytoestrogens which help us to cruise through it naturally ... switch to.soya milk, eat sweet potatoes, beamsprouts, tofu ... There are lots of naturally occurring oestrogen replacemrnts
i also found evening primrose oil an invaluable supplement, as well as ginseng for energy, I dabbed rosemary oil on my pulse points as this is great for anxiety and so power surges and a multi-vit. Eat applies galore a they are great for your hair and moisturise with the oil of your choice... avocado, coconut, olive ... all natural, nutritious and fabulous.
Oh, and chocolate... dark and high % cocao and you're sorted!
I'd urge you to be as dairy-free as possible as it contains growth hormones and at this stage in life, we don't need them!!!
I.hope this had been useful
