In a nutshell, here’s what I’ve learned, from my own personal experiences, to help peri-menopausal & menopausal symptoms:
Peri-menopausal Symptoms (can occur when you’re still having a cycle, even if they aren’t regular anymore)
- Feeling like a furnace at night, but not experiencing actual hot flashes yet – 2 svgs of Shaklee’s Energizing Soy protein as a protein supplement or 2 svgs of Shaklee’s Life Shake as a meal replacement(s), totally got rid of this.
- Feeling depressed during every other cycle – Shaklee’s Menopause Balance Complex helped incredibly and the flaxseed in this product also helped with the furnace (and later hot flash) symptoms.
Menopausal Symptoms – occur once you are truly menopausal (a FULL 12 months of no menstrual cycles)
- Hot flashes, sometimes during the day and often during the night – continue on the Menopause Balance Complex, 2 svgs of protein, but I also found extra relief by adding 2 Tbl of ground up flaxseed to each of my 2 protein shakes. Also, I learned from a doctor to stay away from sweets, caffeine, and processed foods as much as possible and that’ll be the last link to keeping those hot flashes away. He was ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! To this day, I eat very little sugary foods, and I rarely ever have a hot flash even at night, but if I enjoy anything sweet, cake, ice cream, chocolate, candy, etc. (I’m not a soda drinker)…then inevitably I experience hot flashes at night! (Sometimes it’s just worth it!)
- General moodiness – I find great relief for this by taking Shaklee’s multi-vitamin, Vita Lea, 1 w/breakfast, 1 w/dinner and 2 of their B-Complex, normally one with lunch and one with dinner. And to help balance your hormones, they have GLA Complex.
Ladies….This transition doesn’t need to be as miserable as most women experience it…..I hope you find relief from some or all of my tips!
