The menopause is a fact of life that all women will inevitably have to face at some point.
If discussing menopause and menstruation makes you feel uncomfortable, “Get on board, it’s 2015,” to quote one of SoSensational’s favourite stand-ups Susan Calman on The News Quiz, talking about the perfidy that is VAT on tampons because they are considered a luxury item – did all you savvy ladies know that. Tampons are a luxury.
For many women, the myths and horror stories of the menopause have made menopause something to fear, but an insightful new book, The Menopause Cure, is set to change that, providing simple, practical steps that every woman can take to make the menopause a positive experience or, at least, not something terrible to be feared.
The author, Jill Davey, is on a personal mission to “inspire, educate and empower” women to take control of their own health, whether they are approaching menopause, actually menopausal or post-menopausal. Jill began researching restorative medicine and bioidentical hormone therapy when she realised she was in the throes of menopause, attending conferences and working with the world’s leading experts. It was during this research that she met US-based Dr Sergey Dzugan, a world renowned expert in Physiology and Hormonal Restorative Therapy, and began writing The Menopause Cure to create an informative and accessible guide for women everywhere.
Many women see the menopause as the end of a chapter of their life, but The Menopause Cure goes way beyond simply coping with the menopause, to explain how restorative medicine and bioidentical hormones can actually slow and sometimes even reverse the ageing process, as well as preventing a number of age-related diseases including Alzheimer’s, heart disease and cancer.
The easy-to-read book provides simple steps that any woman can take to enjoy life to the fullest before, during and after the menopause.
As well as powerful insights from the latest scientific research, The Menopause Cure offers a personal perspective on the subject, as it follows Jill’s own journey through the menopause. This combination allows the book to provide simple, practical steps that women can take to get themselves into positive lifestyle habits.
- Balance your body: Bioidentical hormones; high quality supplements, vitamins and minerals that help keep the menopause in check, keep you looking younger, healthier, vibrant and, restore your sex drive and lust for life.
- Get some sun: Vitamin D is naturally produced by the body in sunlight and can help prevent 16 different types of cancer as well as diabetes, depression, heart disease, multiple sclerosis and osteoarthritis. Just 40 minutes of sunlight every day can make a big difference to how you feel. Just don’t allow skin to burn.
- Regular exercise: Women who move too little have much higher oestrogen levels, and when the ratios between oestrogens and progesterone are out, we get ‘oestrogen dominance,’ which can lead to weight-gain and is believed to be a factor in some cancers.
- Eat well: A decline in hormones means vitamins and minerals are absorbed less well, so as well as maintaining a balanced diet, it is important to replace hormones via phytoestrogens from plants like liquorice, soybeans and alfalfa in small amounts before menopause can also block stronger forms of oestrogens that may cause cancer.
