The symptoms of menopause can begin as much as a decade before menopause, which is marked by a year without a menstrual period occurring. During this transitional period, women can experience numerous symptoms. Most women are familiar with the well-known symptoms of hot flashes and night sweats, but Dr. Shoreh Ershadi has identified 45 distinct symptoms of menopause, including cold flashes.
Cold flashes and menopause are closely linked due to the hormone fluctuations during this time, which trigger an increased sensitivity in the hypothalamus, or the temperature control center of the body. This is the same part of the brain that is responsible for hot flashes and night sweats. Other menopausal symptoms include thinning hair, brittle nails, irregular periods, tender breasts, vaginal dryness and atrophy, joint pain and muscle aches. These symptoms can affect your quality of life, but some symptoms tend to be associated with health problems. Osteoporosis, heart disease and blood sugar fluctuations can all become more common during menopause.
You can take control of your symptoms before they take control of you. Your first step may be to look for a natural supplement. DON’T PAUSE uses a carefully chosen blend of herbs and antioxidant ingredients to help restore health and function at a cellular level and ease hormonal fluctuations. One to two capsules a day can help you feel better throughout your menopause transition. You may also consider making healthy lifestyle choices such as cutting back on alcohol, quitting smoking, eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly.
