Harmony® Menopause is a combination of 6 vital herbs and vitaminD3, calcium and magnesium traditionally used to relieve the symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. Women going through the hormonal changes of perimenopause and menopause need help to relieve stress, hot flushes and provide nourishment for the whole body to help build reserves of ongoing energy.
What is Peri Menopause?
This is the initial stage of menopause which is characterised by hormonal shifts. The female hormones oestrogen and progesterone are responsible for ovulation and the menstrual cycle but there are dramatic changes in these around this time.
The hormones start to fluctuate widely which results in a variety of symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats. This heralds the start of the menopause process.
When does perimenopause start?
This varies between women. It usually starts in the 40's although it is not uncommon to experience these signs in the late 30's. On average, it starts around the ages of 45 to 47.
Signs and symptoms of perimenopause?
To start with, periods will become lighter and less frequent which is due to decreased egg production by the ovaries. The ovaries release an egg each month during ovulation. This egg passes down the Fallopian tube, ready for fertilisation. But if this doesn't happen then it is broken down and expelled by the body during menstruation. The ovaries also produce the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone plus tiny amounts of testosterone (male hormone). A reduction in the number of eggs produced at this time means a fall in oestrogen levels which then impacts upon your menstrual cycle. Leading to hormone imbalance and adding to the symptoms.
The process of Menopause
When a woman has not had her period for 12 months or more, we can say that she is already in menopause.
During menopause the body will produce less and less of the female hormone, called oestrogen. There is a transition period which is usually a very gradual change. Sometimes a womanâ€™s period may abruptly stop or it may come and go irregularly until eventually stopping.
During the gradual decline of ovarian hormones, the brain will detect the low levels of oestrogen and produces more releasing hormones, in an effort to spur the body to produce more oestrogen. This is why menopausal women get hot flushes, which are sudden feelings of heat on the face or the body caused by sudden dilatation of the capillary vessels.
Menopause is a natural process that all women go through, there is no need for alarm or worry as the ovaries go through their life span, gradually but inexorably, ending their reproductive function because it is no longer needed.
The symptoms of Menopause
Many women will experience physical and emotional symptoms, during menopause which are caused by hormonal imbalance. Although the most recognised symptoms during this period of time are hot flushes and night sweats, there are actually many more recorded symptoms which play a vital role in effecting your everyday comfort.
