Menopause

The Menopause is the natural biological process of a woman’s body adjusting to life after menstruation and fertility. However, the physical and emotional symptoms of these changes can take a toll on your body and well-being. Researchers have found that half of all women have some physical symptoms associated with hormonal changes as they undergo menopause and 25% consider them distressing.

These symptoms can include hot and cold flushes, mood swings, energy loss, excessive sweating, palpitations, joint pains, cramps, headaches, fatigue, disrupted sleep, vaginal dryness, reduced libido, hair loss, skin conditions, weight gain, irritability, poor concentration, and anxiety or feelings of sadness and loss.

All physical, mental or emotional stress causes our body to use up minerals and trace elements faster than normal. This occurs particularly during the menopause. Studies have found that the risks of disturbances in trace mineral nutrition and metabolism can be high during this time.
