Menopause complaints When everything goes off track
“I have embarrassing hot flashes several times a day,” “My mental life is like an emotional merry-go-round,” “Suddenly I can’t sleep well anymore.”
This or something similar is how menopausal women experience their disruptive symptoms.
As the reproductive stage of a woman’s life draws to a close, the production of hormones changes. This natural change – around the age of 50 – is associated with a number of typical complaints for many women: Hot flashes, taut breasts, joint complaints, mood swings and sleep disturbances. Not infrequently also a dry vagina
vagina and, associated with this, a reduced desire for sexual intercourse.
How does Vedic medicine view menopausal symptoms?
Menopause complaints from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, menopause complaints start with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced – due to our way of life – which accumulate in the reproductive organs in the case of menopausal symptoms and can lead to a variety of complaints. Stress and an unstable nervous system can also act as amplifiers of unpleasant symptoms.
However, according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so the course of menopause is also different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, menopause complaints are addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. For example, in the case of menopausal symptoms, the focus can be on the elimination of toxins or the balancing of the nervous system. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all put together especially for you – help you to lead a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers can gently cushion the change in hormones.
