Thank you for joining me at Women's Health Professional Care.

I hope you enjoyed the presentation and the broader discussion around wellness during menopause.

Here is the research I discussed in the presentation.


Symptom

Appearance

As a result of hormonal changes and lower levels of collagen production, lots of women see changes in their skin during menopause, ranging from more lines and wrinkles to pigmentation and a less ‘plump’ appearance. Some women also experience breakouts or acne. A loss of fat in the skin can also cause a loss of elasticity in the skin. Other changes might include more facial hair and dryness.

Brain + Cognitive Function

Some of the most disconcerting consequences of menopause for many of the women we speak to are the ‘brain fog’ and memory lapses that result from a change in hormones. There are practical things that can be done to help manage changes to cognitive function, and in particular minimising stress levels can help. Holistic therapies can also create a sense of calm, especially when they’re supercharged with products using naturally occurring sources of oestrogen (plant hormones), like those in our MPlus range.

Mood Swings

Mood swings are a common consequence of hormonal changes that occur during the three stages of menopause. In fact, around a quarter of women say they experienced mood swings during this time. From anxiety to depression, sadness to irritability, diminishing oestrogen levels can be disconcerting, but holistic therapies and solutions can help manage symptoms.

Nervous Function

As a result of hormonal changes, especially the loss of oestrogen in the body, some women find that their nervous system is affected, resulting in symptoms like tingling extremities and heightened nerve sensations (almost like an electric shock), often before they have a hot flush.

Symptom

sleep

It’s estimated that up to 40% of women experience sleep issues during menopause. It manifests differently in different people too. Some women struggle to get to sleep but then they get a full night’s rest, while others wake during the night for a myriad of reasons, from night sweats and hot flushes to anxiety levels or constantly needing to go to the toilet. The knock on effect can range from fatigue to depression. There are things that can help though.
