When you are hitting that period of your life when you are having no more periods, it’s time that you begin to know your body from scratch, again. Let us explain why?
What Happens To Your Body When You Hit Menopause?
Menopause essentially refers to the end of your reproductive cycle. Often occurring in the 40s, this also signifies several changes in the body by discarding the factors that are no more necessary for a human female with respect to the reproductive process. This includes the end of the menstrual cycle, i.e. regularly occurring periods, production of hormones like estrogen and progesterone and maintenance of reproductive organs like ovary and uterus.
Changes in hormonal balance cause immense changes in your physical health, behavioral pattern and overall body. The subsequent decrease in estrogen levels directly affects your bone strength. Having a low amount of progesterone also impacts your mood and is significantly impactful on your mental health. But before you get horrified by all the natural changes that follow after menopause, let’s get to know how you can help your body quite in time.
How To Help Your Body After Menopause?
Considering the fact that you have already hit your 40s, it is important to accept that you are slowly moving towards a middle-aged phase for your body. This needs you to start working on your health actively, both physically and mentally. Regular physical exercise and meditation become your staple need for health. To tackle the hormonal changes and osteoporosis that may be the consequence of menopause, you are also advised to regularly have balanced diet rich in Calcium and Vitamin A, C and D. The declining level of these hormones are also one of the leading causes of wrinkles and therefore, we advise you to use natural oils for intense hydration and skincare products rich in collagen. Most importantly, start avoiding food items that your body can no longer process, e.g. junk food. This is the time when your body is preparing for its retirement period, and we suggest you take optimum care because your body needs you more than ever.
