Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. It is typically diagnosed after 12 months after your last menstrual period. Biologically, it is a time of life when you are living without circulating hormones; namely, estrogen and progesterone. Menopause can happen anytime during a woman’s 40s or 50s.

Menopause is a natural biological process.

The average age for women in the United States is 51. Menopause is a natural biological process. As a woman approaches her late 30s, her ovaries start making less estrogen and progesterone; the hormones that regulate menstruation and fertility begin to decline. As women enter their 40s, menstrual periods may become longer or shorter, heavier or lighter, and more or less frequent until eventually, the ovaries stop producing eggs and there are no more menstrual periods.

During this stage of life, there are various physical symptoms such as hot flashes and emotional irregularities which may or may not wreak havoc. Your menopausal symptoms may cause disruption in sleep, lower energy levels or imbalanced emotional health. There are many effective treatments available. From lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy, The Balanced Woman will help provide you with solutions that will make this time easier on you. Whether it be formulating an exercise plan, supplying herbal substances for mood balancing, or teaching you about the foods that can aid hormone regulation and reduce menopausal symptoms.
