Entering menopause can put you on a rollercoaster of changes. Some are wonderful (goodbye, periods) but some are burdensome, or even debilitating (hello, hot flashes and insomnia).
Though menopause is a natural and normal stage, having a rough time with it is not. Your diet, lifestyle, stress levels, hormones, and general health work together to create the experience. That experience doesn't have to be a horrible one.
It may be possible to use natural treaments to control the symptoms and smoothen the transition, without resorting to artificial hormone therapy. Moreover, you may learn how to improve all other aspects of your health too, like stress, digestion, and thyroid function.
