Women will spend hours of frustration plus wasted income seeking information, reassurance, relief and, sometimes, quick fixes in desperation. They’ll attempt solutions that just don’t fit their own circumstance or history, let alone their own personal body chemistry.
As women we go through such intense changes in our body image as we transition though menopause. And it feels like it happens almost overnight. We look back at pictures and suddenly feel unrecognizable and often start to avoid social functions out of embarrassment. How did all this unwanted weight appear so quickly? Let alone the hot flashes and night sweats.
I know how quickly it happens, or perhaps it is so gradual in the beginning it is unnoticeable. Perhaps we are just not paying attention. One day we wake up full of energy and ready to take on the challenges of the day, and then somehow, we have lost our energy, put on weight, our sex drive is gone, and we are stumbling around in a constant fog. Our personality has shifted. We don’t even recognize this woman, struggling with embarrassing mood swings, over-reacting to the smallest of circumstances.
We may seek out the advice and experiences of our friends and family who have shared our menopausal symptoms. Yet their experiences and solutions may not work for us because our body chemistry is different – even between mothers, daughters, and sisters. While the symptoms we share with our friends are similar the causes vary. For example, 5 women in a room may struggle with hot flashes due to very different hormone imbalances. Is it Cortisol or Estrogen? Or both? Or perhaps our Progesterone is in the dumpster.
So naturally we go to our doctors for answers but then leave the office in frustration after being told its part of aging. “Accept it.” As frustrating as that may feel perhaps it is a blessing in disguise. Perhaps we don’t want the solutions our doctor will offer-medication full of risks and side-effects.
So, what is our best solution? First, its understanding that we are an individual with a unique chemistry. What ever works for your friends may not be your cup of tea. It needs to be a custom fit based on your blueprint with your hormone levels properly and accurately tested through Saliva. Think of it this way…would you take a trip without a map? Your blueprint, your unique chemistry and tailored solutions will guide you through your menopause journey. It is your true answer!
