Menopause is the natural rebalancing of hormones in a woman’s body as she transitions to the after-child-bearing years. This period varies from individual to individual starting as early as the mid 40s to as late as the mid 50s. The technical definition of menopause is the point in a woman’s life when she has not had a menstrual period for 1 year. Perimenopause (pre-menopause) is a period of 2 to 8 years that leads to menopause. During this transition there can be a variety of symptoms from the common hot flash to physical and emotional concerns. The changes themselves all stem from the hormonal rebalancing that naturally occurs in the body at this time.

Menopause can be initiated in three ways.

· Natural Menopause – Natural Menopause should be regarded as a normal adjustment reflecting a benign change in a women’s biological life from child bearing to a new period of personal fulfillment.

· Premature Menopause (Toxicity Induced) – May be caused by toxins introduced by our lifestyle including:

a)  Dairy products (bovine growth hormones)

b)  Soy based products

c)  Plastics

d)  Personal care products

e)  Cooking with Teflon products

Note:  Many modern products in our industrial society have xenoestrogen components and our bodies need to be strengthened against them. (Xenoestrogens are manmade chemicals which mimic natural estrogen in the body thus causing hormone imbalance)

· Artificial Menopause (Surgical Inducement) – Surgical removal of the uterus deprives the body of ovarian produced hormones needed during and after menopause resulting in poor:

a)  Bone health

b)  Skin health

c)  Sexual function

d)  Heart health

e)  Emotional stability

Problems during menopause are typically abnormalities brought about by our industrialized culture and deviations from a healthy lifestyle.  These often lead to estrogenic dominance (estrogen/progesterone balance) resulting in symptoms such as:

·  Decreased sex drive

·  Irregular abnormal periods

·  Bloating and water retention

·  Breast swelling and tenderness

·  Mood swings / depression

·  Weight gain

·  Cold hands and feet

·  Headaches

·  Osteoporosis (progesterone osteoclast formation)
