Balanced Wellness Through Menopause
Hot flashes and night sweats, that’s all there is to menopause, right?
Menopause symptoms can include weight gain, itchiness, bitchiness, insomnia, brain fog, low libido, vaginal dryness, irregular periods, headaches, depression, anxiety, emotional instability and more.
Menopause is just for older women, right?
The average age a woman goes through menopause is 51, however it can be younger, especially if the ovaries are removed or damaged due to disease or medication.
Women just have to suffer through menopause. It’s part of getting old.
Women have more control over their situation in menopause than they think.
So, you’re moving along though life, relatively comfortable. Sure, not everything is perfect, but life is pretty good.
Then, either gradually or suddenly (as was my case), the hot flashes and night sweats begin. You gain weight. You can’t sleep. You are on an emotional rollercoaster that makes PMS look like a kiddy ride at the carnival. You’ve lost all interest in your job, your mate, sex, the kids, and pretty much everything in life.
You ask Dr. Google and read about HRT but that is scary. You join a Facebook group and all you see are complaints without solutions. You ask your doctor for help with your weight and he tells you it is simply part of aging.
Suddenly, you find yourself suffering through menopause in silence. You feel alone, confused, afraid, overwhelmed, and frustrated.
Many women get stuck here for years or even decades. Struggling to find their balance. Wondering if they will ever feel good in their body again.
I know. I’ve been there.
Several years ago, I went into surgery hoping for the best-case scenario: the removal of an ovary and cyst. I awoke to the worst-case scenario: a full hysterectomy and sudden surgical menopause.
I found myself feeling lost and misunderstood as I navigated my journey through surgical menopause. Everything, from getting up in the morning to getting myself through my workday and finding the energy to socialize and maintain relationships, became laborious.
I felt alone, confused, afraid, overwhelmed and frustrated
This was a time of crying, screaming, and yelling.
Then, after several months, there came a time to rise.
I combined everything I knew from traditional and nontraditional healing practices. I explored new paths and lifestyle changes to reduce stress and improve my life’s balance and overall wellness.
I uncovered passions and spent more time focusing on the positive.
As I focused on happiness, balance and joy showed up.
And there was hope.
