Signs of your changing hormones can begin in your mid 30’s, long before you might expect them. It's important to be prepared for this long journey.
Menopause is a natural life transition experienced by every woman in the world in her own unique way. Unfortunately, we've been conditioned to believe that this profound time of life is something to be approached with dread and fear. Moreover, most women don’t understand perimenopause and are completely unprepared for it.
It's important to know that there are two distinctly different phases of "the change." It begins with perimenopause, and transitions to actual menopause when you've gone 12 full months without a cycle.
Perimenopause can begin in your 30’s and span 5 - 10 years of your life.
As the end of your childbearing years approach, progesterone levels begin
to drop, disrupting the fine balance between this vital hormone and estrogen. The resulting excess of estrogen is often the cause of mood swings, heavy periods, tender breasts, fibroids, cysts, and the many other symptoms of "estrogen dominance."
Younger women often don't associate the onset of their symptoms as hormonal imbalances. Instead, they tend to think something is terribly wrong and turn
to their doctor for answers. Typically, that results in prescribed medications, including "the pill," antidepressants, and/or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
Many women also endure hysterectomies and other surgical procedures, while the core cause of their symptoms are ignored and left unaddressed. The heavy bleeding, fibroids, cysts, and thickening of the uterus that lead to a hysterectomy or cyst removal, are typically the result of an excess estrogen, and could very possibly be resolved without the need for an invasive surgical procedure.
Your changing hormones will impact your entire endocrine system, most noticeably the healthy function of your adrenals glands, thyroid, pancreas , and gut; the largest endocrine organ in the body. But, it's important to know that the supplements, herbs, and even foods that are helpful during menopause and beyond, can make you feel worse during perimenopause and potentially put your health at risk.
When a woman reaches menopause, many of the most challenging symptoms are behind her. While this phase of your journey might seem smoother with more manageable symptoms, new and deeper aspects of your changing hormones need to be addressed. Menopause brings your awareness to the “silent symptoms” of estrogen deficiency including bone loss and heart disease.
