| How I see The Menopausal Monster|
courtesy of Monsters by Kristen
To many people are still in the frame of mind that this Monster doesn't show it's face until a woman is in her 50's I am here to tell you this simply isn't true. Just as when a young woman becomes a woman is different so is the Monster waiting to come alive. Women as young as 40 have been known to have this creature take up residence and control their lives. So please don't think that you are safe until you reach 50. Get prepared now , many home / natural cures are recommended early on.
Also to the family members of those coping with this creature , they may have your loved one crying at the drop of a hat or they may all of a sudden have extra energy they have never had before. They may get freezing cold and then burning up within a matter of seconds. It is different for every woman and the list is much to long to post here. Just keep in mind this is NOT THEIR FAULT. They are being controlled by the Monster within and need your love , support and understanding.
Now I have tried vitamins and for a while they worked pretty well , but I am still searching for something to help with the emotional roller coaster I have been on for about a week now. I would love to evict this evil creature and am still trying to find some home treatments that actually work.
Here are a few things I will be trying. If you or someone you know has managed to Kick the Menopausal Monster out or at least control it please share your methods with me. This creature is driving me nuts....LOL
Sunflower Seeds : These are said to help boost estrogen
Vitamin D : This is supposed to help with the Mood Swings ( I will def. be taking more of this!!! )
Meditation and Breathing : Something I should be doing anyway but will add to my daily routine
