Smooth menopause through Ayurveda
Ageing is a natural process although there is immense reluctance for its acceptance. Menopause in women is one such mile stone which brings about cessation of menstruation.
Most of troubles during menopause is linked to the hormone called oestrogen which is no more produced now. As a result symptoms like hot flushes, vaginal dryness, frequent urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence, heart related problems, joint pains and sleep and mood swings are commonly found.
So, what is the solution? Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The answer could be yes, but it comes with a price, and the price is the side effects like high risk of breast cancer, heart diseases, stroke, blood clots and many more.
Is there a safer alternative possible?
Yes, Ayurvedic approach is aimed at restoring back bodies balance in a safe way by not suppressing the symptoms of discomfort, instead addressing any underlying imbalances in a natural way.
What do you mean by `imbalances’?
According to Ayurveda, menopausal symptoms are regarded as imbalances of the `doshas’ (`vata’, `pitta’, and `kapha’), A vata-pacifying diet will be helpful as Menopause and life beyond it is dominated by vata. So it is necessary to nourish the body with food that balances the dry and light qualities of vata. On other hand middle age is pitta dominant so addressing both would be necessary.
In a nut shell what would be Ayurvedic approach for menopause?
Coming back to nature with action of Ayurvedic herbs, dosha specific diet along with replacing oestrogen naturally, simple behaviour modifications and yoga therapy would play a key role in completely replacing HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) in very near future.
