By the time a woman reaches her menopause, she is often at the height of her career, and may have teenage children. The stress of juggling work, raising children, and a fast paced active lifestyle plays heavily on the reserves or our adrenals.
What happens when we are chronically stressed?
If we are constantly in a state of stress our adrenals are firing all the time. We are designed to be fighting a tiger occasionally, not 24-7.
Years and years of an adrenalin based living is eating into your precious piggy bank of energy.
Why are your adrenals important in menopause?
Our adrenals take over the production of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone in our peri-menopause from our ovaries. The continued production of these hormones by our adrenals is what eases the menopause transition.
If your adrenals are already depleted , they will not be able to perform this vital function.
How we nourish the adrenals with homeopathy
With homeopathic remedies we can do so much for our stress levels and the health of our adrenals. We have specific remedies that nourish and restore our adrenals. We also use remedies that balance and decrease stress hormones. The medicines deregulate your nervous system so you can begin to feel less stressed.
Nourishing your adrenals is an especially important building block in menopause treatment. Once we restore your adrenal energy, we can help your anxiety, exhaustion, palpitations and lack of sleep amongst other things.
If your adrenal energy is low it can even send you into an early menopause.
Once your adrenal glands are depleted it might take some time to rebuild them. We can definitely do this with homeopathy, but making some lifestyle changes to support this is an essential part of the process.
