What is menopause?

Menopause usually affects women between the ages of 48 to 55. Menopause is not a disease, but is a normal physiological transition in a woman’s life from a reproductive stage to a non-reproductive stage. The main problems a woman is likely to experience with varying degrees of severity during menopause are: headaches, tiredness, lethargy, irritability, anxiety, nervousness, depression, insomnia, inability to concentrate, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and sweating.

Menopause is part of the natural aging process. At the time of menopause a woman’s body no longer produces sufficient blood to sustain a monthly period without overly draining her system. Therefore, the body in its wisdom redirects the downward flow of blood and energy from the heart to the uterus. The flow of blood and energy is directed upward to nourish the spirit.
