We will all go through to the end of our menstrual journey. This impending event is called“Menopause.” Menopause might be the end of our baby-making days, but the process behind does not simply end. At times, the symptoms of menopause can be debilitating while others just fly by it. Whatever condition you might fall in one day, it’s best to prepare for it by caring for your reproductive system.One of the best ways of caring for your baby mamas is to supplement it the natural way, for instance, the chasteberry way.
Before we embark on the wonderful journey of menopause (and aging gracefully), let’s have a look into chasteberry first and why should it be your first pick for menopause.
Chasteberry is the fruit of the chaste tree. Chaste trees are usually in subtropical regions of Asia and the West. The Chasteberry’s usage is wrongly thought of for years.It was thought to be an herb that lowers men’s libido. Ancient maidens and monks use it to keep their chastity. But chasteberries grew from that misconception and evolved into this important herb that cares for the women reproductive system.
Chasteberries are effective in keeping its promise in caring for our womanly parts because of their power over hormones. Chasteberries help balance out and mellow down raging hormones in your body. Hormonal imbalance usually results in uncomfortable menopausal symptoms and menstrual symptoms.
Chasteberries are utilised in many ways. However, the most popular form of taking in chasteberries is through capsule form. In a capsule form, chasteberries are often mixed with other hormone-regulating herbs like wild yam. Chasteberries can also be made into teas or be mixed with rose tea.
Menopause is that time of our life where our baby-making capabilities are officially in its end. Menopause is usually diagnosed if you are somewhere between the ages of 40 and above. It becomes an official diagnose if, after a year, your monthly visitor does not visit you any longer.
Menopause is inevitable and is part of the aging process. Although normal, menopause can have some uncomfortable symptoms that can disrupt the everyday activities of individuals. Some of these symptoms are the following:
· Emotional imbalance
· Hot flashes
Symptoms of menopause are felt the greatest on time leading up to the menopausal period.This set of symptoms is different from the symptoms that you will feel during the menopausal period.
· Slightly lopsided breast
· Scaly skin
· Slower metabolism that might lead to weight gain
· Mood Swings
· Changes in sleeping pattern
· Intense hot flashes
· Missed periods
· Shorter cycles
One telling sign that you are about to enter a whole new world of menopause is the shorter cycles and irregular periods.
This does not mean though that the possibility of pregnancy is no longer present.
Menopause entails many things, not just aging. Menopause comes with medical risk too, from developing cardiovascular disease, bone disease, incontinence in urinating, obesity, and more.
· Cardiovascular Disease
The dawn of menopause means the start of estrogen decline. The decline of estrogen can mean many things, but it will mostly affect the heart. Women in their menopausal stage should be wary about the state of their cardiovascular system because as of now, it is the leading cause of death in both genders.
· Bone Disease
Menopause also meant a decline in bone density. As we grow older, the development of cells in our body decline. The loss of bone density can make the bones weak and brittle.A bone with little strength can easily crack, which can lead to a lot of complications like osteoporosis.
· Incontinence in Urinating
As women are nearing the end of their baby-making days, their mama parts like the urethra are getting a makeover. This makeover includes the thinning and the loss of elasticity. This condition leads to incontinence in urinating. Incontinence in urinating means you will have a hard time controlling the frequency of urinating.
Menopause also means a decline in the metabolism rate of your body. An unwanted figure can replace the once nice and normal figure that you have because of the decline in metabolism.
So, you see, entering the menopausal stage of life is not a walk in the park. This is why you need to be wary of your reproductive system as this will be the temple of your new worry in a couple of months. There are many ways in caring for your menopausal period, whether it’ll be before, during or post-menopausal period.Some go to hormonal therapy while some opt to go for the natural way. One of the ways of caring and treating the symptoms of menopause is through the use of chasteberries.
Chasteberry is a woman’s herb and is tagged with that phrase for a reason. It has a lot of benefits not only during menopause but during your menstrual years. Now, why is chasteberry so good for menopausal women?
The simple answer as to why the chasteberry is great in treating the symptoms of menopause is because of hormonal balance. The chasteberries levels out the hormonal imbalance, which is the primary root of menopausal symptoms. The chasteberry has a wonderful influence with our pituitary gland. Our pituitary gland goes haywire sometimes. At times, it produces too much prolactin or too low in terms of progesterone level. This abnormal over and underproduction of hormones manifests through the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and menopausal symptoms. The compounds found in chasteberries can influence this hormonal imbalance. This influence is done by stimulating the luteinising hormone in the pituitary gland.
The increase in the luteinising hormone within the pituitary gland corrects the production of estrogen and progesterone. Specifically, it helps increase our progesterone level and decrease the estrogen level. The slight increase in progesterone level is not considered a hormonal imbalance since women are built to withstand the increase in progesterone. This is because our body is built to expect that we are fertile. This would mean that even when our progesterone will increase sometime, it will not render negative effects in our reproductive system or the process of menopause, perse’.
The mellowing or the leveling of your hormones leads to fewer manifestations of the symptoms. A balanced hormone might mean rare hot flash visits, a graceful transition to menopause, leveled mood, undisturbed sleeping pattern, and more.
Women with hormonal imbalance sometimes turn to the synthetic way of increasing their progesterone. But this is a slightly problematic way of increasing one’s progesterone as it can have a wayward effect in your moods. At times, it can lead to depression. So, one of the best solutions in addressing this problem is through the usage of natural herbs, namely, the chasteberry.
There are many ways of preparing for the menopause period. But it is always better to use the natural way of treating the symptoms of menopause. Chasteberry, the women’s herb can help you in that section. Try to use it now.
