Menopause: Getting on a roller coaster

It is not a disease, but a normal stage, a physiological process to which women inevitably reach but the hormones become unbalanced causing a series of changes of mood, heat, fatigue, dispersion, insomnia, palpitations and crying.


A roller coaster of emotions that can be controlled if it is acknowledged and can be faced in a relaxed way.


Women enter this stage between the ages of 40 and 55 with the disappearance of the menstrual cycle, which causes the absence of sex hormones produced by the ovaries. Every woman has her own times, her own symptoms.


Adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes necessary rest, good nutrition, exercise, avoiding the consumption of toxic substances as well as a positive attitude are suggestions to adapt to this hormonal change.


But without a doubt, it is best to consult a doctor about foods and medicines that can help to overcome this stage that the Japanese call “konenki” which means transition to old age.
