Back in the 1960s, menopause was defined as a deficiency disease by gynecologists, and hormone therapy was the cure. Often referred to as the “change,” “one of nature’s mistakes,” or “a sign of aging,” negative attitudes about that phase of female life blossomed. Such determinations have no reasonable place in the world we live today and should be forever discarded like bell bottom pants.
In reality, this natural transition in a woman’s life is an individual experience. Some women undergo numerous symptoms either physical, psychological or both. However, others experience few or none of the stereotypical menopause symptoms. Whatever the circumstances, it can and should be embraced as a new beginning in a lifetime of experience.
At the same time, if there are some bumps in the road in the form of hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings, there is natural help for both the possible symptoms of menopause and fear of the aging process.
Herbs can be natural friends to women experiencing menopausal symptoms. AIM RevitaFem provides a potent 8-ingredient combination that helps to balance out-of-whack hormones, calm mood swings, cool hot flashes and deliver tonics for the blood, uterine and urinary tract. It is especially fascinating that some of the herbs offer beneficial estrogen-like effects (e.g., red clover, soy extract, black cohosh, dong quai), preventing estrogen from attaching to cell receptors and causing damage. Some act as gentle adaptogens that the body uses as needed to help adapt to and recover from the stress of menopause. For centuries, many of these herbs have been used individually as medicinals for women. RevitaFem’s botanicals are made more effective by bringing them together in one formula.
The lignans in flax seed also provide effective estrogen-like effects, so AIMega gives a girl even more natural help at the menopausal stage in her life. The whole truth is that omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are essential throughout a woman’s life. Even though the body cannot makethese healthy fats, EFAs are required daily for a myriad of actions, including brain function (definitely a mood booster), healthy skin and hair growth, weight loss (sometimes difficult during menopause), bone building (estrogen deficiency can cause bone loss) and hormone production (’nuff said).
AIMega’s encapsulated organic seed oils make it easy to get the essential fats a woman needs daily, perhaps even more so in the transitional years leading to blossomed maturity.
If menopause is a sign of getting older, then a strong antioxidant defence against the damaging effects of free radicals can help prevent the signs of aging. Unfortunately, the body produces fewer antioxidants as the years go by. Along with eating a variety of fruit and vegetables, one of the best ways to increase both the number and variety of antioxidants is to take AIM Proancynol 2000.
Each capsule of Proancynol 2000 delivers seven antioxidant-rich ingredients: green tea leaf extract, rosemary leaf extract, grape seed extract, N-acetylcysteine, lycopene, alphalipoic acid and selenium. Along with anti-aging benefits, this wealth of antioxidants boosts the immune system throughout stressful changes, and a woman can use all the healthy help she can get.
Menopause is a natural process, so balance your chemistry naturally to stay healthy and youthful. While each woman is unique and symptoms may seem overwhelming, it is important to remember a solution awaits with experimentation. Along with dietary adjustments, this trio of natural supplements can help you gain control and balance your body chemistry, giving you a fresher, younger perspective for this new beginning in life.
