HOW TO AVOID STRESS AND ANXIETY

Gynecologist

HOW TO AVOID STRESS AND ANXIETY

Even though some people may experience mood changes due to hormonal modification, the large majority of you will feel stressed and anxious during menopause transition. There are many reasons for this but because stress has a significant impact on your health if it is persistent, it should be treated as just another symptom. Here are few tips to improve your well-being during this natural step of your life.

Again, loss of oestrogens can directly affect your mood. In some cases, menopause transition can lead to hyperthyroidism that we know has a strong impact on anxiety. But more commonly, stress is caused by sleep disorders. Sometimes enhanced by hot flashes, sleep troubles, when settling in time, can be the main cause of your stress.

Adopt healthy habits

Menopause is a great opportunity to reassess your health goals and rediscover benefits of healthy food. Varied and proportionate healthy food consumption will help your body adapt to the changes it is facing. It will protect your cardiovascular system and also have benefits into reducing hot flashes and sleep troubles.

A few hours before bedtime, try to stop drinking all liquids, especially caffeine and alcohol. Avoid physical exercises in the evening and rather than spending time in front of your smartphones and tablets' blue lights, try to close your eyes and meditate.

However, anxiety is not necessarily related to hormonal changes. We know that menopause transition often coincides with life changes. Teenage children to manage or children leaving home, ageing parents, career changes, or partner issues comes all along with weight-gain, wrinkles and hair changes, or loss of the libido. Being aware of your own aging while dealing with major life changes is certainly not easy to deal with.

Start the conversation

In General, the best way to prevent from any loss of confidence and isolation is to be surrounded. Being able to talk about it, whether with your practitioner, your friends, or your partner, is the prerequisite to a precious step-back. Taking the time to understand what is happening to you will allow you to educate yourself and your entourage. You will then find out that it is nothing but a natural phase in woman's life which comes along with many new perspectives.

THE POWER OF VITAMINS IN YOUR DIET

By Veronica Di Nardo,
Nutritionist

Read more

BOOST YOUR ORGANISM WITH VITAMINS

As much as minerals, vitamins are micronutrients. They are different from macronutrients in which we find proteins, lipids, fats and carbohydrates. Among 13 vitamins we know, some may regulate the changes body experiences during peri-menopause and lower the disabling effects that may occur. Let’s see how vitamins can boost your organism and make you feel stronger.

HOW TO BOOST SKIN RADIANCE?

Oxidative stress is directly linked to the decline of estrogen. It may lead to your skin looking dull. Fortunately, proper intake of food rich in antioxidants will protect you from free radical damages while reactivating your skin radiance. Vitamins A, C, D and E, and polyphenols are very rich in antioxidants. They are mainly found in plants. So don’t hesitate to eat a lot of different fruits and vegetables. Dark chocolate is also very rich in antioxidants, such as pecan nuts and whole grains. Daily intake of these vitamins will boost cellular proliferation of your skin, its innate immunity, hydration and will modulate inflammations as well as preventing from UV damages.

It's also well-known that quality of the sleep has a real impact on skin radiance. Reducing menopausal symptoms that causing sleep troubles is then a good way to take care of it – Once again, vitamins will be your best ally. Antioxidants like vitamin C and E reduces vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and sleep troubles. They also reinforce the immune system and lower heart diseases risks that may later occur to some women. Citrus fruits like oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, tomatoes, red or green pepper and broccolis are full of Vitamin C. Time to create new juices and soup recipes! For vitamin E, you’ll find them in abundance into whole grains, nuts and olive oil. Beyond nutrition, simple habits can help you to reduce sleep disorders and hot flashes - and thus giving you back your most beautiful skin radiance.

WHILE GETTING NEW HABITS, ALSO TRY TO LOSE OR REDUCE THE BAD ONES!

It has recently been proven that nicotine and alcohol use within 4 hours of bedtime were associated with increased sleep fragmentation in the night. Avoiding evening alcohol and nicotine use is thus a good start to improve sleep continuity.

In the same way, avoid large meals and spicy or acidic foods before bedtime as they may trigger hot flashes.

Simple but efficient: try to stop drinking all liquids, especially caffeine, a few hours before going to bed.

If there is one thing that I’d like you to remember among all of what we've seen along the coaching is that no matter what diet suits you the best. Taking care of having a healthy diet and healthy body weight will prevent you from imminent or later disorders. And most of all, it will make you feel better in your day-to-day life.

Take care of yourself!

CHOOSE AN ADAPTED DIET AT PERI-MENOPAUSE

ADAPTED DIET AT PERI-MENOPAUSE

WHY ADAPTED DIET AT PERIMENOPAUSE?

During peri-menopause, the body uses energy differently and needs less daily intake. It loses muscle mass, weight gain and fat repartition evolve. As each one of us is unique, our body will respond its own way to hormonal variations.

That’s why today I would like to draw your attention on solutions a healthy diet may offer to prevent you from gaining too much weight, but also on how it can help you lower other menopausal effects such as: hot flashes, sleep disorders, mood swings, skin ageing, heart diseases or bone loss.

Very simple tools can make you live this period more serenely, let's start with universal tips that suits all of us!

  • Eat healthy and organic foods at each meal:
    • Try to eat at least 5 portions of fruits and vegetables.
    • Mainly found into fishes, fruits and vegetables we know that vitamins C, D, K as well as calcium are recommended for proper maintenance of bone health.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine and choose foods that are low in added sugars, saturated fats and sodium.
  • Make water your best ally by drinking at least 1,5L per day.
  • Practice daily physical exercises.

These habits will not only prevent you from weight gain, but they will also benefit to the largest organ of your body: your skin.

HOW TO BOOST COLLAGEN AND HYALURONIC ACID SYNTHESIS WITH NUTRITION?

Because of estrogen decrease and cortisol increase, wrinkles are more visible and skin loses elasticity. However, some specific food intake can reduce these effects.

  1. Collagen is made of different amino acids, but Glycine, Proline and Lysine are the ones we find in higher proportion. They will increase collagen dermal synthesis and prevent skin ageing. You will find them in animal proteins such as dairy products, eggs, or seafood but also in vegetables like quinoa and mushrooms.
  2. Closely related to the skin barrier function, Omega 3 will also guard you from dryness, inflammation, itchy skin or even sun damage. You can find it in salmon, nuts, trout or flax seed, canola oil or soybean.
  3. Vitamin C is fundamental for collagen synthesis. You will find it in all citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, or mandarins, but also in great quantity into kiwis, strawberries, or other green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach.
  4. Rich sources in Vitamin D eating fatty fish like trout or white mushrooms, will prevent you from skin dryness and will stimulate cellular proliferation of your skin.
  5. There is a close association between sugar and some food processing methods with skin ageing. Their mechanisms are related to skin Advanced Glycation End products (AGESs) and their accumulation fasten the ageing of your skin. Choose the right carbohydrates!
    • Prefer whole grains and low sugar food.
    • Avoid fried, grilled or baked food and prefer boiled, steamed or raw food
  6. Minerals like copper, silicon, manganese, iron are also needed for collagen synthesis. Find them in liver, oysters, spinach, legumes and red meat. As anti-nutrient (mostly found into vegetables) reduce the absorption of minerals, you can deactivate their effect by soaking or boiling the food before eating.

ADAPTED DIET BENEFITS ON MENOPAUSE SYMPTOMS

As I said at the beginning, healthy diet will not only improve your skin ageing appearance, but it may also lower menopause symptoms. Here are a few tips to avoid hot flashes one of the most common symptom during menopause.

  1. Antioxidants like vitamin C and E can reduce vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes whilst improving immune system.
  2. Avoid large meals and spicy or acidic foods before bedtime. This will prevent from hot flashes and ensure a better night.
  3. And to put all the chances on your side to have a restful night, avoid caffein and alcohol, especially in the late afternoon, and try to stop drinking any liquids a few hours before going to bed.

THRIVING IN PERI-
MENOPAUSE WITH A
HOLISTIC HEALTH
PRACTICE

THRIVING IN PERI-MENOPAUSE WITH A HOLISTIC HEALTH PRACTICE

WHAT IS PERI-MENOPAUSE?

Peri-menopause is related to the period of time that precedes the end of the menstrual cycles and which corresponds to hormonal disturbances. Cycles usually tend to shorten even though it is not rare to see them lengthen. Menstrual flow intensity undergoes the same mechanism as it can be increased or on the contrary, decreased. Keep in mind that if ovulation is deeply disturbed during peri-menopause it does not mean that you can’t get pregnant. Do not change the habits you had until you reach menopause.

Throughout this entire period, your body undergoes a multitude of biological and clinical changes. Oestrogens produced by ovaries since your puberty gradually dry up. During this period women can go through:

  • Hyper-oestrogenism which causes irritability, breast pain, weight gain as well as abdominal swelling
  • or through hypo-oestrogenism which provokes hot flashes, sleep troubles, general fatigue, loss of libido and low morale.

Since, they use to play a decisive role in many organs’ good health, their fluctuations affect almost every part of your body. Your bones, your heart, your breasts, your brain, your genitourinary system, your skin, your hair or even your nails are impacted by these natural changes. Understanding and identifying these mechanisms as early as possible helps to prevent inconveniences they cause and to properly prepare your body for the years that follow.

EACH MENOPAUSE IS UNIQUE

This phase of peri-menopause, like the following ones, varies enormously depending on the professional activity, the social demographic, the physical and psychological health and even the family clinical history of the individual. Each of you is unique and each of you will be affected differently. That is why it really needs to become a conversation between you and your practitioner. Nowadays, in addition to a regular and complete medical check-up, a simple blood test can indicate how likely symptoms are to manifest in the near future. Because each and every symptom has a treatment or a solution, whether pharmacological or not, early identification of changes will help you to choose the strategy that is the best for you to limit or sometimes even avoid undesirable effects.

6 TIPS TO HELP YOU TO GO THROUGH PERIMENOPOSE SERENELY

Menopause is not a disease; it is a natural process every woman experience differently. Here are 6 tips to improve your health, self-confidence and well-being.

  1. Healthy diet
    What if perimenopause was the occasion to rediscover benefits of healthy food? Varied and proportionate healthy food consumption will help your body adapt to the changes it is facing. Healthy diet will help you to control weight gain. It will boost your density and skin hydration while providing your bones minerals and vitamins they may lack. It will protect your cardiovascular system and also have benefits into reducing hot flashes and sleep troubles.
  2. Exercise
    Regular exercise along with healthy diet will help you maintain a healthy weight. It helps to decrease hot flashes; it reduces the risk of coronary artery disease, and it also has a beneficial effect on bone and skin density. If you’re not used to practice physical activity, surround yourself with others. It will make this moment funnier and will enhance both your motivation and dedication.
  3. Skincare
    Boost your skin density and hydration by improving your intake of foods rich in vitamin E, D and omega 3. Practice physical exercises as much as you can and make yourself happy with beauty treatments adapted to your skin specificities.
  4. Bad habits cessation
    Smoking as well as alcohol consumption is associated with numerous chronic diseases. We also know that smoking contributes to an earlier onset of perimenopause and a longer period leading to menopause. It has also been concluded that alcohol consumption has a trigger effect on hot flashes, night sweats and sleep trouble.
    Some other simple habits and routine may improve these latest symptoms. A few hours before bedtime, try to stop drinking all liquids, especially caffeine and alcohol. Avoid physical exercises in the evening and rather than spending time in front of your smartphones and tablets’ blue lights, try to close your eyes and meditate.
  5. Dialogue
    Menopause is not a disease. You should be able to openly talk about it with your partner, members of your family and with your practitioner. Being surrounded, heard, understood and well advised during this transition period full of changes is decisive.
  6. Medical check-up
    Peri-menopause is a real occasion for you to know more about your body. As you are getting older, it is time to empower yourself by making sure all the preventions you can take are followed-up. That includes everything from weight, vulvovaginal examination, pelvic ultrasound, bone densitometry, liver assessment and mammograms to contraceptive management if needed as well as cardiovascular management. Your body is the most precious capital you have. Like all others, the way you manage is determining. Menopause is thus the perfect occasion to invest and empower positively your body’s knowledge and general health. Take advantage of it!
