As the level of the hormone oestrogen falls in the body, it can cause annoying symptoms such as weight gain, hot flushes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings, poor concentration, frequent headaches, dryness and joint pains.
Before menopause, women are protected against a number of diseases by oestrogen such as heart disease and osteoporosis. The changes that occur during the menopause due to the loss of oestrogen can increase the risk of heart disease and bone weakness.
Nutrition and lifestyle also has an important role to play in the management of menopausal symptoms. The menopause is a time to look after yourself by making healthier lifestyle choices to make this mid-life transition easier. We are here to guide and support you through the Change of Life.
