Menopause is a transitional time in a woman’s life. It is the time when the ovaries are retiring and hormone levels are changing. The average age of menopause is 51 yrs old and by definition means you are without a period for 1 year. Menopause may bring with it some challenging symptoms such as insomnia, hot flushes, vaginal dryness, low libido, tearfulness, anxiety, irritability, irregular periods, joint pain, weight gain, to name a few. Menopause doesn’t have to be a struggle; you don’t have to just live through it until it’s done. Diet, lifestyle, herbal medicine, acupuncture, counselling, hormone testing, and bio-identical hormonal replacement therapy are all available treatments to patients at Living Wellness Centre.
