Menopause and Food Allergies
Menopause is often accompanied by a variety of symptoms, but rarely do women expect to have increased allergies along with their night sweats, irritability and hot flashes. However, as hormone production slows and eventually stops in the ovaries, the adrenal glands will take over the job. If the adrenal glands become stressed, perimenopausal and menopausal women may experience an uptick in allergies, including food allergies.
Adrenal gland dysfunction can be associated with anxiety, fatigue and sleep disturbances as well as food sensitivities and allergies. In many cases, women who experience food allergies in response to menopause may have always had underlying sensitivities. Although there is no cure for allergies, women may be able to manage their symptoms and discomfort through lifestyle changes.
Stress reduction can be a great way to alleviate the discomfort associated with menopause and food sensitivities. Yoga, Tai Chi, meditation and massage can help ease stress, clear your mind and reduce inflammation. A healthy diet during this time is critical. Whole grains, lean proteins, healthy fats and plenty of produce can provide you with the nutrients you need to stay strong and healthy. An elimination diet can help you better identify your triggers and food allergies.
DON’T PAUSE, which has been developed using all-natural ingredients chosen and designed to reduce menopause symptoms, may be another option. It contains black cohosh, green tea and pomegranate to restore balance and reduce such symptoms as food allergies. A natural menopause cure along with lifestyle changes can help you feel like yourself again in no time.
