If it hasn’t arrived already, menopause will be come at your on multiple fronts. The symptoms are not just the physical ones such as hot flashes and night sweats, but ALSO psychological ones including insomnia, irritability and extreme mood changes
You can stack the odds in your favor DRAMATICALLY by avoiding certain foods and staying away from treatments that were popular in the past but are now considered harmful.
It has been overwhelmingly proven that conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which science once touted, is in fact, dangerous. The following prescriptions now have black box warnings and need to be avoided:
1. Premarin: Premarin is an estrogen extracted from Pregnant Mare’s Urine. We now know it is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.
2. Estrogen Therapy: Estrogen, which is extracted from Premarin, was effective in combating some menopausal symptoms but proved to have serious, negative side effects, such as the increased risk of breast cancer and an increase in insulin levels.
3. Provera: This drug is a progestin or a synthetic form of progesterone, which probably makes it more even toxic than Premarin. Its well-documented, negative side effects include blood clotting. In addition, long-term usage studies revealed many other negative side effects of HRT, including high blood pressure and vaginal bleeding. A year after millions of women quit taking hormone replacement therapy, incidents of breast cancer fell dramatically—by 7 percent! No wonder women now know to avoid dangerous, conventional estrogen replacement.
So these are drugs that you want to make sure to avoid. Next, stay away from these foods
Fatigue, weight gain, moodiness, and hot flashes can make you wish for a slice of cake or a second martini, but those choices could actually make these symptoms of menopause worse. “A woman can take a little more control over the consequences of her symptoms by eating better and by exercising,” says nutritionist Mickey Harpaz, PhD
4. Sugar: Fight fatigue and weight gain symptoms of menopause by controlling blood sugar. Limit sugar intake to less than 10 grams at a time. You can still have a small cookie, but better menopause diet choices for snacking are fruits — especially berries — and veggies.
5. Excessive Caffeine: Don’t let hot flashes at night make you double up on coffee in the mornings. Caffeine can make you both moody and even more tired, since it interferes with sleep, especially if you drink it after noon.
6. Alcohol: A glass of wine with friends once in a while won’t worsen symptoms of menopause. However, a regular habit of two or more drinks a day can add calories to your menopause diet and make symptoms such as fatigue or moodiness much worse.
7. Spicy Foods could make hot flashes worse or just make you less comfortable in general. “When you are eating spicy food your core body temp goes up, and you start sweating. This is exactly what happens in hot flashes.
