15 Sep Natural changes – Menopause
While some women cruise through the hormonal changes of menopause, the majority experience one or more of the most reported symptoms:
- Heat flushes
- Night sweats
- Mood disturbances/mood swings
- Impacts on memory
- Sleep problems
- Changes in sex drive/libido
- Urinary incontinence and prolapse
There are many ways to help yourself manage some of these symptoms when they become uncomfortable or intolerable. Some of the ways include changing your life style, activity levels and diet as well as seeking professional support if required.
As menopause is a time when things are changing in the body, many women experience weight gain, bone strength can become an issue and bladder/pelvic organs prolapse symptoms can appear or worsen.
This is the time when our team at Western Womens and Mens Health can help you with treatments and exercises to manage your weight, keep your bones and muscles strong and our women’s health physiotherapist can help you manage any pelvic floor symptoms. Many women do not seek help with prolapse until their symptoms become significantly bothersome. Seeking assistance from a qualified physiotherapist can prevent prolapse from getting worse and provide relief from the associated symptoms. Our team can also provide nutritional advice as well as recommend supplements that can support your body naturally.
