Holidays are time when routine is interrupted. We eat and drink differently and peri-menopause symptoms are more prevalent. For instance over indulging in alcohol causes increased hot flushes. Pressures of preparations, overloading self, exhaustion sets in. The even keel is lost and we start to feel unwell, with hormonal symptoms kicking in! Pre-menopause is the start of hormonal change. Where the body starts to shift and change with hormonal decline. As women we have got used to internal hormonal deciding factors for around thirty years, menstrually helped conception, supported pregnancy etc., suddenly without warning hormones start to wane and reduce. Certainly, a shock to our systems. Feeling as though rug has been pulled. Everything is turned upside down.
Dependent upon how well our hormones have worked, supported us… or not. Will depend how we individually will react at this time.
Emotionally, a harrowing time, as memory goes, foggy brain and mental attributes seem to leave us in perimenopause. Many women are misled that menopause only lasts a few years… perimenopause does. However, different stages of decline will continue into menopause and elder menopause, which can last for another twenty years, where serious health conditions can arise.
As hormones reduce, adrenals are lined up to kick in to soften the absence of hormones. A great plan. However most women live adrenal exhaustion from tiredness, over work and super mum living. Adrenals need support more than ever in perimenopause.
