We at our wellness garden are aware of the challenges involved with this life-changing stage. For this reason, we have developed a detailed plan to promote your overall health during menopause. Our restorative yoga program is intended to help you regain physical and mental balance while easing symptoms including hot flashes, mood swings, and exhaustion. This article examines what approach every woman should take and the scientific basis for how meditation and yoga practices might ease suffering and enhance overall health during this period of life change. Dr. Sheela Krishnaswamy, a nutrient expert reveals the top 3 nutrients that come to mind when you think of women’s health are calcium, iron, and folate; and the most common health concerns that bother women are weight, aging, and menopause

 

Overview

 

Surprisingly, Menopause, a natural transition in a woman’s life, marks the end of menstruation and fertility. While it’s a normal part of aging, some women may experience discomfort during this time. After a full year without a period, a diagnosis is usually adopted. Menopause can occur at age 51 approx. However, it tends to happen in the middle of the 40s and 60s. The signs of menopause might differ from woman to woman, but a few of the more prevalent ones are mood swings, increased weight, dryness in the vaginal area, hot flashes, and nocturnal sweating. According to a research report by Mayo Clinic, 80% of women are facing the problem of hot flashes during their menopause.

 

The positive aspect is that every woman has to take precautions from these unpleasant symptoms and enhance their general health by trying a variety of natural treatments (yoga) and holistic procedures. The symptoms of menopause can be minimized and the chance of chronic diseases is reduced by doing daily physical activity and maintaining a balanced diet.

 

There is the possibility of an increase in emotional and physical changes caused by menopause. Although it’s not a disease that needs to be treated, it is an adaptable phase.  This is exactly holistic wellness and yoga for restoration can work effectively to manage discomfort and enhance your overall health.

 

Meditation and stress management are given priority in restorative yoga’s style-focused practice. In contrast to energetic yoga, restorative yoga creates entirely supported positions with the help of props like blocks, pillows, and bolsters. Then you hold these positions for up to fifteen minutes at a time, giving your entire body a chance to entirely let go of stress and relax.

 

Symptoms During Menopause

 

There are many symptoms linked to menopause, however, a few of those that are most prevalent are as follows:

  • A hot flash is an erratic, strong heat wave that is usually accompanied by moisture, skin flushing, particularly on the cheeks, neck, and chest area and an irregular heartbeat. They occur at any time and can be highly disturbing.
  • There is a situation when even if you haven’t consumed much fluid, you can experience an intense, unexpected urge to pee more than usual.
  • Declined libido: Hormonal imbalances frequently cause a decline in sex desire.
  • Reduced vaginal lube or vaginal dryness may trigger irritation, burning, and pain in sexual activities.
  • Having abrupt mood swings, such as being joyful one moment and depressed the next.
  • A frequent issue, whose exact cause is unknown, is pain and discomfort in the joints and muscles.
  • Mind fog: having trouble focusing, forgetting things, and feeling disoriented mentally.
  • Weight shifts: Whereas some women might drop kilograms, others might put on weight.

 

Understanding the RRRR approach

 

Using a wide range of wellness practices and therapies, it is a comprehensive framework designed to enhance your general well-being by treating the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects by following these steps:

  • REST: Yoga poses that encourage calmness and better sleep. Assisted stretches, restorative yoga postures, and yoga nidra techniques can all help calm the mind and promote more restful sleep, which might be disturbed throughout menopause.

 

  • REJUVENATE: The phase of menopause may constitute a period of meditation and transformation. During this transitional stage, taking care of oneself through rituals, time spent in nature, and interests are rejuvenating activities that may help women feel reenergized and reconnected to themselves.

 

  • REBALANCE: The human body’s normal balance can be disturbed during menopausal hormone imbalances. Every cell of the body goes under regenerate during this time. Women can help themselves adapt to all of these changes and retain general well-being by emphasizing rebalancing measures, including a balanced diet, frequent exercise, yoga, and reducing hot flashes, and night sweat problems.

 

  • RENEW: Menopause is usually seen as a period of individual growth and regeneration. Maintaining one’s own mental, emotional, and inner health as well as adopting a positive attitude while accepting new chances are all necessary to welcome this stage with a feeling of rebirth. This could result in a feeling of satisfaction and energy both before and after menopause.
Study Findings

 

  • A review published in Maturitas Journal that yoga and other exercises are effective in menopausal symptoms.
  • An inspirational story of Wanitha Ashok discusses exercise, and options and prioritizes your health during menopause.
  • A table round by Sagar Hospital, where women, doctors, and experts discuss approximately 61% of the population have gone with osteoporosis (especially women’s)after postmenopausal.

Generally speaking, there isn’t a set list of tasks you have to perform during menopause. To make the process easier and enhance your general well-being, there are several kinds of measures that you can practice like holistic and restorative practice.

 

Advice:

  • Lifestyle adaptations: optimizing excess weight with nutrition and physical activity, which may greatly improve symptoms, mood, and the quality of sleep.
  • Dietary habits: Include whole grains, veggies, fruits, and lean protein. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and packaged foods, as they might worsen certain signs.
  • Stress Management Techniques: Adopt methods like mindful breathing, the practice of yoga, ayurveda, and massage can help reduce stress and enhance your overall health.
  • Restful sleep means keeping a cool, dark sleeping environment, setting up a sleep routine, and starting a calming nighttime ritual.
  • Adding supplements: Before beginning any new supplement regimen, speak with experts. Black cohosh and morning glory oil, etc help mood swings and hot flashes.
  • Hormone replacement therapy is a useful way of managing menopause symptoms for specific women. This process will be done after consulting your healthcare provider about this to determine if it’s suitable for you.
  • Holistic Therapies could also help in the menopausal phase such as acupuncture, herbal teas, and detox.

 

Healing Process
