Going through menopause is different for every woman from the age that you naturally go through it to the severity of the symptoms that come with it. While it may seem like an uphill battle when it comes to combating the symptoms, know that there are ways to reduce them. Many women simply push through hot flashes and trouble sleeping, and it doesn’t have to be this way. Whether you have just started to notice the signs of menopause or you’ve noticed them getting worse, here are a few ways to reduce them.
#1: Feminine laser treatments
Over the last decade, feminine treatments have advanced and become much more comfortable and effective when it comes to reducing the symptoms of menopause. In Indianapolis, MonaLisa Touch™ has become a popular treatment for women because it has virtually no downtime and results are noticeable. It’s vital that you speak with a doctor about your symptoms to find out if you’re a good candidate, and Dr. Singer begins with a complementary consultation.
#2: Healthy lifestyle changes
Healthy lifestyle changes can make a significant difference in the way you feel as you go through menopause. Drinking plenty of water is important as well as getting regular exercise. When it comes to your diet, make sure you eat fruits and veggies to get a low in calorie and high in nutrients meal plan.
Keep a journal so that you avoid foods that exasperate the symptoms of menopause. Often, adding spicy and sugary foods can trigger menopause symptoms like hot flashes and trouble sleeping. Keep a journal to help you identify the foods and beverages that cause symptoms to flare up.
