– A Change Too Far?

This is one of the health areas I have worked with most and I love seeing the change in my female clients when they get a good night’s sleep regularly, the flashes reduce or stop, and they let me know their partners/husbands are really pleased that the mood swings have been eliminated!

Why does it occur?

Menopause is defined as the permanent cessation of the primary functions of the ovaries: this includes the release of ova, the release of hormones that cause both the creation of the lining of the uterus, and the regular shedding of the uterine lining (the period).  Menopause is generally acknowledged to have happened when one year occurs free of your period.

This transition normally occurs over a period of years and the years leading up to it can be called peri-menopause.  For some women, the signs and effects can significantly affect day to day living.  Alternatively, if you have a full hysterectomy i.e. including ovaries, you immediately go into menopause.

Symptoms that can accompany  Peri-menopause, during the menopause and often last for months or years after include.

  •  Hot flashes (flushes)
  •  Night Sweats
  •  Breast Tenderness
  •  Vaginal Dryness
  •  Forgetfulness
  •  Mood swings
  •  Anxiety

How do I help you?

There may be some food intolerances happening in that some foods may have a stimulatory action and be partly responsible for hot flashes and sweats.  This would be an area I would check in the first two sessions and also look at for some nutritional or Homeobotanical to help balance the endocrine system of which the ovaries are part.

Working on the lymphatic system helps to cleanse your body’s tissues, this can be really helpful for congested breast tissue and there is a really good technique that I can teach you to do at home to continue the benefits between treatments.

The endocrine system is one of the slower systems in the body to re-balance so I recommend as a minimum, balance sessions over a 3 month period.  Initially, I would expect to see you with a week between the first 2 sessions and then space it to fortnightly, then to 3 weeks so approximately 6-7 balances over the 3 months.

Be Cool, Be Calm, Be in Control of Your Hormones Even When They Change.
