Did someone turn on the heat? I can speak from experience when I say it's getting hot in here. My body felt like a furnace, followed by a cooling fan. It's funny and not at the same time. However, I am grateful for God's natural remedies. A few changes to my lifestyle made a significant difference. I no longer go through the hot flashes.
According to Dr. Agatha Thrash, a great majority of women require no treatment at menopause whatsoever as the symptoms are minor and will pass without any particular treatment in a few weeks or months, or at the most two or three years. Since the use of hormones from an outside source has been associated with severe problems, it is recommended that the administration of hormones be avoided if at all possible. An increase in breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer has been associated with the use of estrogens and fibroid tumors of the uterus, depression, and liver or gallbladder disease.
After a hysterectomy, even though the ovaries were saved when the uterus was removed, they may be damaged by surgery, the tying off of blood vessels, and mechanical trauma to the glands so that they function poorly.
Osteoporosis is a significant health concern in menopause. It is a condition of five, ten, even forty years in the making, and at the time of menopause, usually has no recognizable symptoms. The primary unpleasant symptom in menopause is the hot flash.
Common Symptoms Ascribed to Menopause Cardiovascular system: palpitations, high blood pressure, hot flashes Musculoskeletal: aches and pains, osteoporosis is usually symptomless Genital: irregular bleeding, decreased libido, vaginal dryness General: dryness of skin, wrinkling of the skin Neurological: nausea, dizziness, mood changes, irritability, depression, insomnia, numbness, tingling
Cause of Hot Flashes An experiment was done measuring the tightening of blood vessels in the skin after ice applications. Women with hot flashes tended to lack the expected tightening of blood vessels, whereas women who had no flashes, or very mild flashes, managed to have a quicker tightening of the blood vessels. There was a significant relationship between the degree of tightening and the severity of the symptoms.
