Many women seek natural menopause treatment. This approach combines nutrition and lifestyle changes and is highly effective at preventing or reducing the severity of nearly all of your symptoms, rather than just relieving them temporarily. If you’re approaching menopause, it’s the perfect time to begin to think about dietary changes to improve your overall health.
How can nutritional therapy help promote a healthy menopause?
The menopause is a time of hormonal change for your body, and these changes are reflected in your nutritional needs. A few small tweaks to diet and lifestyle can make the whole transition a lot smoother. Together we’ll work through a process to help you make positive changes to improve and maintain your health and wellbeing.
Step 1: Take a thorough case history
First we will discuss what has been going on so I can get a picture of all the symptoms you’ve been experiencing. We will look at your diet to make sure it includes plenty of the food groups important to support your body at this stage of life.
Step 2: Recommending tests
Sometimes female hormone testing is necessary to get an accurate view of your hormone status. We may need to check if you are actually approaching the menopause, or if your symptoms are a result of something else. I never look at symptoms in isolation – it’s important that we work to heal your body as a whole, not just the condition you are presenting with. These can be carried out by your GP.
Step 3: Create a personalised nutritional therapy programme
Finally I will create a tailor-made diet plan to help you learn which foods you should be eating more of, and which you should be avoiding to reduce those unwanted symptoms. I may also suggest commonly used nutrition or herbal supplements to reduce some of your symptoms.
