Menopause and Depression
Women who tend to be sensitive to the hormonal changes that occur throughout life may also be more sensitive to the hormonal fluctuations of menopause. If you suffered from premenstrual syndrome, experienced mood swings during pregnancy or suffered from post-partum depression, you may also be more likely to suffer from depression during menopause. Women who have a personal or family history of being clinically depressed may also be at an increased risk.
Menopause is a time of many major changes, and symptoms can range from mild to quite severe. As your body adjusts to your new hormone levels, you may experience both physical and emotional symptoms that can feel quite overwhelming at times. If you are feeling sad, hopeless, restless, extraordinarily tired and worthless or you simply do not enjoy the things you once did, you may be experiencing depression. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet can help you improve your overall physical health and reduce some of the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause. Increased exercise has been shown to have dramatic mood-lifting benefits. In some cases, simply getting more sunshine can also help improve your mood.
If you are feeling depressed, talking to your health care provider may be able to rule out any other conditions. A natural supplement can help reduce many common, disruptive menopause symptoms, including night sweats, mood swings and depression.
DON’T PAUSE, a multi symptom menopause natural relief supplement, contains such ingredients as green tea, pomegranate extract, chromium picolinate and DHEA to recharge your metabolism, help balance your body’s blood sugar, stimulate your sex drive and promote healthier aging.
