It’s an unfortunate fact that as women, we are going to get older and our bodies will change in response. Some of those changes are good (no more monthly visitor – yeah!) and some not so good (night sweats and mood swings, anyone?). If you are troubled by the many symptoms of menopause, you’ll be happy to know that there are many natural forms of relief. Take a look.
Cramps and Pains
While you would think that menopause would signal the end of those awful monthly cramps, the truth is that often they still occur even after the end of menstruation. If your abdominal pain is regular and persistent, make sure to schedule an appointment with your doctor to rule out any other medical problems. But if its intermittent and not too severe, try drinking mint tea or placing a hot pad on your stomach. Hot baths also help and a FIT body wrap could also do wonders by targeting your abdomen with infrared ray heat.
Perhaps one of the most annoying symptoms of menopause is weight gain, particularly around the midsection. Due to the changing level of hormones (even when you are taking HRT), older women tend to gain weight in the abdomen, hips and thighs. And even worse is that it sometimes seems impossible to lose! Once again, the soothing far infrared ray heat from a FIT Bodywrap® can be just the ticket for getting rid of that stubborn muffin top. Try a weekly session for a month and see what a dramatic difference this effortless weight loss tool can provide.
“Is it hot in here or is it just me?”
Another symptom of menopause that is quite prevalent is feeling hot – whether it’s hot flashes during the day or night sweats while trying to sleep. The culprit is once again hormones, specifically the estrogen which regulates the body’s temperature control via the hypothalamus. The best, natural way to alleviate hot flashes and night sweats is through a change in diet and behavior. It’s best to avoid alcohol, tobacco, and spicy foods, especially in the hours close to bedtime. Stress, bedroom temperature, anxiety and diet pills (another good reason to rely on FIT Bodywraps® for weight loss) all tend to make matters worse, too.
If you are going through menopause right now, take heart in the fact that there are many new, non-medical treatments you can use to alleviate the symptoms. FIT Bodywraps® are an excellent, natural way to lose weight and relieve some of the aches and pains of menopause. An added bonus? Body wraps delivering far infrared ray heat also soften your skin, which tends to get drier with age.
