Menopause. Mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, diminished libido. We’ve got you, and we know how the transition can feel. But what about all those less-talked-about niggles? We’re talking itchy skin, burning sensations in the mouth, dental issues, and thinning hair. No one seems to shout about those things as loudly, and yet the struggle with them is real. As with all things around menopause, we want to first of all pause, and note that many of these things are common. You are not alone, and by talking about it, we can start to work through the challenges and find effective management techniques.
Menopause is a transition that presents many funky health hurdles, but it has some opportunities too. It’s a time to embrace a new way and put yourself first, and we all know that rarely happens in women’s lives. It’s also worth noting that CBD shows promise for alleviating menopause symptoms. So, let’s dive in, discover what these symptoms are all about, and how CBD can fit into the picture.
From a scientific POV, the reasons behind your menopause symptoms come down to the shift of hormones in your body. The big one is the drop in estrogen, a hormone responsible for the growth, development, and ongoing maintenance of the reproductive system.
Yes, it has plenty of vital roles, so you can see how a notable dip can result in some obvious symptoms around the body. But as well as being integral to the reproductive system, estrogen helps to stimulate natural oils and collagen, which all help to keep us looking young, vibrant, and fresh. Estrogen is also responsible for influencing skeletal, cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, and adipose systems, accounting for the systemic host of symptoms experienced during menopause. Here’s a closer look at these complaints.
As with all these symptoms, being aware of the risks is the most important step to managing them. Once you know these issues are just all part of the picture with menopause, you can start taking active steps to minimize the symptoms and create a plan forwards. As with anything in the medical arena, also remember that it’s vital to speak to your doctor if you are concerned about any menopause symptoms.
A huge perk of this century is that we’re so clued up on beauty and well-being ingredients, it’s easy to choose non-toxic alternatives and nourish your beautiful bod. CBD is one ingredient showing promise across these areas, from dentistry to the chronic pain that may accompany your menopause challenges. Here’s your guide to managing these symptoms another way.
