Even though menopause is a perfectly natural stage in every woman’s life, it’s still often accompanied by various symptoms that can interfere with daily activities. In order to have a comfortable menopausal experience, we have hand-picked three natural remedies, as well as some good habits that you can easily adopt into your life.

What’s menopause?

Menopause is an inevitable part of every woman’s life, marking the end of the reproductive years and typically happening around 50 years of age. From a medical standpoint, menopause is generally diagnosed when a woman has gone without a period for 12 consecutive months.

During menopause, the ovaries stop producing sex hormones estrogen and progesterone. This sharp decline in hormones can cause various symptoms that can last for several years. Some women may only experience the loss of their menstrual cycle, whereas others may experience various other symptoms.

Below is a list of some of the most common symptoms:

– hot flashes
– dry skin and mucous membranes
– sleep disorders
– irritability
– decreased libido
– weight gain

According to the Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Quebec, 60% to 80% of women experience one or more menopause-related symptoms in addition to the loss of their menstrual cycle. These symptoms frequently cause discomfort in everyday life.

As a matter of fact, according to a study done by INSERM (National Institute for Health and Medical Research), between 20% and 25% of menopausal women complain of suffering from symptoms that affect the quality of their lives.

Fortunately, even though menopause can’t be avoided, there are ways to alleviate the symptoms, so that you can have a comfortable and natural experience!

Homeocan’s best natural remedies can help make menopause a more positive experience for you

Among all of the remedies that nature provides, there are three that are particularly well suited to help with menopause-related symptoms:

Dioscorea Gel: apply the gel twice daily to the abdomen and rub in gently—it’s an essential natural remedy! Dioscorea is made from wild yam and silicea and helps to restore hormonal balance and relieve menopause-related symptoms.

Menopause Pellets: these homeopathic tablets help control hot flashes and other menopause-related symptoms. Compact, portable and easy to use, they will help you feel great wherever you go!

Gemmo Professional – Rubus Idaeus: this Gemmotherapy remedy is made from raspberry buds, a berry bush well-known for its various benefits. It contributes to female wellness by restoring hormonal balance. It’s perfect for relieving menopause-related symptoms.

These products work together. To provide overall relief and well-being, use them simultaneously for as long as you are experiencing any symptoms.

However, it’s always a good idea to speak with a health professional before self-medicating. Even though our products are natural and free of side effects, depending on your condition, they may not be right for you

Our natural tips to help you through menopause

In addition to the Dioscorea Gel, the Menopause Pellets and the Rubus Idaeus, adopting a few good habits can help relieve menopause-related symptoms:

Take charge with turmeric!

This spice contains phytoestrogens that can help control hot flashes. Tofu, as well as its derivatives, also contains phytoestrogens, so feel free to add them to any of your meals.

Try Sage!

Sage has also been known to effectively control hot flashes. In order to take advantage of its benefits, brew it regularly in tea.

Get active!

Engaging in physical activity is essential, not only for your well-being but to help relieve certain menopause-related symptoms. Specifically, hot flashes, depression and weight gain. Choose a low-impact activity such as yoga, swimming or riding a stationary bike.

Live a healthy lifestyle

The sharp decline in hormone levels may cause your heart and overall cardiovascular system to weaken. In order to protect yourself, avoid excessively fatty, salty and sugary foods, as well as alcohol and tobacco.

By adding these natural remedies to your routine and adopting these habits into your life, you can relieve menopause-related symptoms and take full advantage of this wonderful transition in your life!
