A note about Menopause and Dizziness - Discussion and Remedies
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
And then there is menopause and dizziness.
Although some women never experience dizziness during this time, many do. It might be a weakness in or damage to either stability or perception, but most often it is both. The word is used in describing such things as a spinning sensation - or the room spinning around you (vertigo), a feeling one is off balance, a weak knee faint feeling or a feeling like you may be going to reel and explode (hyperventilation) brought on by a panic attack.
Dizziness is the result of a menopausal symptom such as anxiety, migraine headaches, hypertension or a panic attack. It can keep women from going outside of their homes in fear they will become dizzy and fall or embarrass themselves in some other way. Thus, the menopause and dizziness connection can have a very real impact on women's lives.
A drop in the production of the hormone progesterone is responsible for symptoms that trigger dizziness - more specifically fatigue, migraines, anxiety and panic attacks, all of which result in disorientation.
Another thing women do during this time, for various reasons, is skip meals, resulting in dizzy or faint feelings.
Women who have chosen hormone replacement therapy might also experience dizziness, as it is a listed side effect of many menopause treatments. These are a couple of possible indirect links between menopause and dizziness.
Outside of speaking with your healthcare provider about dizziness, there are some natural steps a woman can take on her own to help diminish menopause and dizziness issues.
Diet and exercise are imperative during this time, as is the abundance of pure water. This may seem to be a generic blanket for a multitude of symptoms, but along with some well known herbs - black cohash, kava kava, wild yam and vitamin C - these are ways to naturally help the body function properly, as well as to deal with menopause and dizziness.
As well as taking a good look at your lifestyle - quitting smoking, some extra creative activity, restful atmosphere for adequate rest - your diet is the number one area in which a woman can boost her health naturally for a smoother trip through menopause. Before a drastic elimination of anything from the diet, begin by incorporating a few foods (and plenty of vitamin C) that will help not only motivate, but support the change.
A variety of fresh fruits and vegetables are full of the life giving vitamins and minerals the body needs to naturally keep itself healthy. They also offer fiber, which is a natural intestinal / colon cleanser, and water, which is the one element the body cannot live more than a few days without. For healthy protein choices, consider whole grains, lean poultry, soy, legumes, nuts and seeds.
Indeed, a good dietary and lifestyle protocol would go a long way in helping to keep menopause and dizziness at bay.
