Menopause

It is a transitional time in a woman's life when altered or decreased ovarian function occurs due to a change in the secretion of female sex hormones. This change occurs in women, usually between 45 and 50 years old, sometimes earlier and less frequently later.

Menopause can also be defined as a natural change that takes place in a woman's body that marks the transition from one stage to another. This is where the transition from the fertile to the infertile phase is most thought.

Although this is a part of life that carries with it certain negative consequences, it cannot be said that it is a disease. For a woman, it is simply a change in life that she must learn to cope with.


Menopause is most often manifested in changes in the form of irregular, increased or less profuse menstrual bleeding, and shorter or longer periods of menstruation. Women often have disturbances in the form of waves of heat, sweating, nervousness and other psychological disorders, heart pounding, tremors and tingling sensation in the fingers.

Such disorders can be very successfully treated with hormonal preparations and tranquilizers. At this time, it is very important to go to a doctor for regular check-ups, because of irregular bleeding, one could always think of the possibility of a female genital tumor. Many women go through this phase without major disruption.

If you want to go through the new changes without much difficulty, it would be best to include flakes, low-fat milk, honey and natural green tea on your menu. Also enrich the diet with strawberries, pistachios and lemon.
