Symptoms, conditions and causes

What is menopause and what are the causes for it?

Understanding Menopause and Your Body

Your hypothalamus, a region in your brain, plays a key role in regulating your menstrual cycle. Around age 52, menopause occurs naturally as ovarian function declines, leading to a change in hormone levels. Your adrenal glands partially compensate for this shift.

Menopause can cause various symptoms, including:

  • Hot flashes

  • Night sweats

  • Anxiety and mood changes

  • Stress

  • Muscle loss

  • Potential bone density changes

Supporting Your Well-being

Taking care of your adrenals is an important way to potentially manage menopausal symptoms. This includes:

  • Prioritizing quality sleep

  • Managing stress levels

  • Considering ways to support healthy cortisol balance

Additionally, your pituitary gland stores vitamin E, and levels may naturally decrease during menopause. A high-quality vitamin E complex might be helpful in reducing symptoms. Iodine from sea kelp could also offer support by potentially balancing estrogen levels.

Liver Health Matters

While supporting your adrenals is important, your liver also plays a crucial role in managing menopause. Your liver helps detoxify your body, including processing excess hormones. Liver function can naturally change with age.

To support your liver health, consider:

  • Eating cruciferous vegetables (or supplementing with DIM)

  • Exploring calcium D-glucarate supplementation

  • Consulting a healthcare professional about potential detox options

  • Discussing ways to support healthy liver circulation
