Easy Breezy Menopause - August 2021

Why do some women sail through menopause while others suffer from hot flashes, mood swings, food cravings, brain fog, and fatigue? The answer may be in part due to the state of your adrenal glands. Healthy adrenals can alleviate much of the discomfort that accompanies this rite of passage.

Your adrenal glands produce more than just the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline.  DHEA, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are also produced by the adrenal glands.  Before menopause 40% of the sex hormones your body produces come from your adrenal glands.  After menopause that number shifts to 90%!

If your adrenals are exhausted they won’t be able to provide you with the estrogen and progesterone you need to help keep your entire web of hormones balanced, and menopause becomes challenging. Unfortunately, adrenal exhaustion is an epidemic in America due to our stressful lifestyles, and many women are suffering for it.

So how do you breeze through menopause with healthy adrenals?
Here are some tips:

* Getting to bed by 10:00 pm keeps your cortisol levels low and helps regenerate your adrenal glands.

* Take breaks throughout your day to do breathing exercises, yoga poses, tai chi or loving visualizations to shift your nervous system into a state of rest and repair.

* Manage psychological stress by putting things into perspective. We often make mountains out of mole hills. Let’s keep everything a mole hill.

* Assure for proper nutrition by planning your meals ahead, not eating on the fly. This will assure you get whole real food, not overly processed “faux” food.

* Honor your physical self by moving your body everyday, in a pleasurable way.

* Love and gratitude are universally healing for every cell in your body, and by the time you reach menopause you should have plenty to love and be grateful for.  I know I do.

All of these things will help revitalize your adrenal glands, reduce your everyday stress, and make menopause more manageable.

Navigating menopause can be overwhelming. I know, I’ve been there, done that.

Recipe
Easy RAW Cherry Soup (a seasonal delight)
Category: Raw Foods
Description: Cherries can be sweet or sour, red or black. My favorite varieties are the big black ones. We used to enjoy “Bing” cherries I commonly now see a variety called “Lapins”. Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment in berries. Cherry anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. Anthocyanins are also potent antioxidants. In addition, they appear to significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Cherries are considered a warm food and are great for increasing circulation. They make an excellent detoxifying food, helping the body eliminate uric acid and cleanse the kidneys. They contain ellagic acid, an anticancer compound. So, not only do they taste fabulous, they are also very healthy. A word of caution, cherries are considered to be part of the “”Dirty Dozen” when it comes to fruits and vegetables that have been found to contain the highest levels of pesticide residues. So, it is vitally important to choose only organically grown cherries. They may be considerably more expensive, but your health is worth every extra penny you spend.
Fresh cherries are best stored in a bag in the fruit drawer of your refrigerator. They can also be pitted and frozen into serving sized portions.
