Menopausal mood swings, hot flushes and brain fog … and what to do about it!

Menopause heralds the official end of your reproductive years - your ovaries no longer produce eggs and oestrogen, so getting your period is now something in your past.  Your transition from full reproductive years to menopause is known as perimenopause and, during this time, you can experience the same symptoms as when you're in menopause. For many, perimenopause and menopause causes significant hormonal disruption, bringing with it a range of possible symptoms such as brain fog, hot flushes, headaches, sleeplessness,  palpitations, low libido, frequent bladder infections, anxiety, irritability and mood swings. If you find yourself experiencing any of these symptoms during your menopause transition, plant medicines and flower essences, blended for your unique experience, can help alleviate them.

One of the very first things I learned whilst I was studying nutrition 18 years ago, was that refined sugar literally destroys essential vitamins and minerals in your body.

As we need vitamins and minerals for our bodies to work, it makes perfect sense that refined sugar is not good for our health.  Recently the World Health Organisation recommended that for optimal health we should restrict our added sugar to just 25 grams or 6 teaspoons a day.

Are you sick and tired of feeling tired?

Do you have to drag yourself out of bed every morning?  Do you feel you're running on empty? Don’t accept a low energy pattern – it doesn’t have to be that way - even if it's been that way for a long time.  If you’re feeling low on energy and you’ve lost all motivation, you may well have adrenal fatigue. Factors such as stress, no work/life balance, poor nutrition and/or an unhealthy lifestyle can all be culprits.  Sometimes even a small deficiency of vitamin B3 can lead to adrenal fatigue. But adrenal fatigue is just one reason for having low energy levels – you may be trying to do too much, not eating well, not getting enough sleep, not exercising, not getting out in the daylight or...
