The actual symptoms are quite detailed; night sweats are common; hot flushes or uncontrollable and irregular high body temperatures, palpitations, insomnia, headaches, joints aches and vaginal dryness. When estrogen production reduces or gets diverted to do other body functions, imbalances sets in and sexual activity gets affected.
The uterus behavior is compromised and starts missing its normal curve. Ovaries shrink, skin becomes dry and penetration becomes painful. In a little more detail, hot flushes are such a nuisance that women at times feel like striping themselves in public. This is so because the hypothalamus which works as the thermostat of the body loses balance when estrogen is not available in adequate capacity in the body. This is pathetic especially when one feels very cold even when the surrounding temperatures are very high.
Accompanying this is the absence of sleep or sleeping problems in general get ignited by low levels of estrogen because most of these irritabilities arise at night. Vaginal dryness that is the absence of the natural lubricant is a tough situation for most women. Penetration hurts and may cause bleed unless estrogen levels are raised by any means.
Estrogen is really a critical hormone in women and must always be in enough quantities. Imagine even containing urine becomes a problem making victims urinate frequently; the bladder goes off guard and starts mishandling urine; it refuses to hold the normal capacity, that is it fails to stretch to the usual length. During menopause also, aches of all kinds come up without any causative agent at all. Headaches, bone joints, back aches etc are switched on for no apparent reason.
The largest organ of the body, the skin goes dry as a result of low estrogens; it becomes thin and starts to wear wrinkles. At times it irritates without plan. In summary, emotions are shaken more than anything else by menopause. The sufferers shun many things in life as their bodies become flaccid and lose stamina to thrill.
There are many remedies, you can decide to eat all these food stuffs or choose a few or go herbal completely and take herbs that boost estrogen levels: cucumbers, yams, pumpkin seeds, alfalfa, soybeans, soy sprouts, cabbage, beets, olive oil, flaxseeds, garlic, sesame seeds, wheat, corn, apples, papaya, oats and peas.
The most popular herbs are the St. John's Wort and Black cohosh. Black cohosh is the most described as the best healer of all menopausal symptoms. These are menstruation problems, hot flushes, palpitations etc. St. John's Wort is anti depression remedy; it gets rid of anxiety and associated stress of feeling out of place and incomplete. The clover plant extract called promensil is known to reduce exceptionally well hot flushes and cools off the body to normal temperature. Another one called dong guai from China has extracts that mimic estrogen and calms menopause completely with perfect results.
