PERIMENOPAUSE – THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM
If you are like me and did not know that not only do we have the glorious Menopause to look forward to, but there is also something called the Perimenopause which starts well before you hit the full-on menopause.
I am a woman in my mid to late thirties. The menopause is something that I felt I never had to worry about until I was in my mid 50’s at least. The thought never even crossed my mind. I was completely uneducated, misinformed and utterly foolish. I know this now. Wild Women Tribe was created to get women speaking about all the ups and downs of being a female. Our bodies are amazing and Wild Women is about embracing all changes and turning it all into a somewhat positive experience.
If you read my last blog all about the Menopause, then thank you. In this blog we are going to delve into the world of the Perimenopause.
Did you know that women can show symptoms of perimenopause for years leading up to the full-on menopause and so many women don’t even recognise it? They put it down to PMT and the stresses of life, but it can be your body telling you that something more sinister happening so recognising these signs of body change will be massively beneficial to not only your body but to your mind too.
When your hormones start to change but before your periods fully stop for good is known as Perimenopause.
This is a natural stage of life that occurs at a certain age and can last from 4 months up to four years on average, sometimes longer. It is when you start producing fewer eggs so once you have not had a period for 12 months, then you have officially reached the fabulous Menopause.
SIGNS OF PERIMENOPAUSE
Change in your Menstrual Cycle
Experiencing the Perimenopause is a signal that your body is changing.
SUPPORT YOUR HEALTH
Eat a heart healthy diet with at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables.
Take a daily supplement of Vitamin D to support your bones and health and wellbeing.
THE HEALING POWER OF DRINKNG HERBAL TEA
The process of making tea as your daily ritual is a process that can slow the mind down, make you feel cosy and nurture your body in a natural way.
Herbs balance your hormones and support a sluggish body.
Herbs also have a long-lasting effect on our health when drank regularly.
Herbs have natural healing powers and can really help aid your body when it is going though such a big change such as Perimenopause and when you are in the eye of the storm that is the queen Menopause.
Herbs work in such a simple way inside the body. Like plant-based sources, herbs are rich in helpful nutrients. When the body breaks down herbs, our gut absorbs all these beneficial compounds.
