Is Menopausal A Natural Condition?

There is much talk surrounding the subject of menopause and it might be easy to forget that menopause is not a disease or condition but rather a natural process of aging. There are some unpleasant symptoms of menopause, the severity of which varies from woman to woman, and the treatment of menopause is to alleviate the annoyance of the symptoms, not to stop or reverse menopause itself.

The onset of menopause is gradual as the ovaries gradually produce less and less estrogen. It is the fluctuations of hormones which occurs during this time that is the culprit for the common symptoms which are experienced by most women.

Some of these symptoms include night sweats, palpitations, hot flashes, as well as mood swings, anxiety, and depression.

The average onset of menopause is around fifty years of age, it varies among women. If the onset of menopause occurs before the age of 40, it is called early menopause and can be due to genetics, or surgery and illness.

For years, hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, was recommended for women but this has always been open to debate and there is much disagreement among medical professionals as to whether hormone replacement therapy is indicated or even safe to recommend. HRT is often considered to combat osteoporosis which is age related loss of bone density.

To manage the bothersome symptoms of menopause, many products have been brought to market. You can visit your health food store or search online for natural menopause remedy, and you will be presented with many products which help to balance the body and hormones to make the passage through menopause less stressful.

If you have any concerns about whether you should be taking hormone replacement therapy or if you are wondering which supplements are safe to take, the best advice is to discuss it with your doctor who knows your medical condition well and can help you come to the best solution for your particular situation.
