During the 60s and 70s, we were part of the hip generation spreading love, eating organic, embracing the sexual revolution, practicing alternative lifestyles, and meditating for inner peace and world peace. Now these things are appreciated as a healthy way of life, and everyone is doing it to some degree, or knows they should. Yeah, we baby boomers are pretty cool.

We can’t turn back the clock, but we can live more like we did when we were younger, in lifestyle and attitude.

Our youth was different and our attitude is different than any other generation before us. There was a time when 50 was old. Our 50 is the new 35. So many of us are just figuring it out at 40 and 50 and getting started. And our health at mid-life relies on our ability to live wiser and put to good use the wisdom we collected from the experiences we have already lived through and survived.

How to manage menopause is the big unease. Hormone replacement therapy can be misleading amid risks and benefits. The better informed we are and the more involved we are in our health care, the clearer we can see what we need to do to have good health and enjoy our life. And whatever that is for you, only you can take the steps to make it happen.

Re-living the health oriented aspects of our cool youth and herbal medicine culture is no longer a far-fetched way of relieving hot flashes and insomnia. It is in your own best interest to be proactive and exercise your physical and intellectual strength to prevent, restore and heal your body.

Symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause don’t strike overnight. Although there are many reasons the amount of hormones circulating throughout our body change during perimenopause and menopause, most changes can be anticipated. We know when our periods are coming. If you suffer from premenstrual tension or hot flashes, consider what you can do to stabilize and maintain hormone balance.

Advancements in nutritional development, as well as findings within clinical studies and manufacturing technologies have given us something we can academically wrap our heads around. We have a wealth of medically proven non-drug tactics to manage perimenopause and menopausal symptoms. All the self-care things you do keep you in control of how you feel, and what keeps us healthy as we age is not just one thing; it is the accumulation of all we do.
