For many years I have been working with women and being their confidante. One of the things I find incredibly sad is to hear how many women allow the negative thoughts they have about their body, impact their lives.
Can hormones affect our visual health?
We go through many hormonal changes during our lives and with the arrival of menopause our visual health can be affected.
Many of us already know the physical and emotional changes that occur during this significant stage of life and we must know that these changes can also manifest in the eyes.
We often talk about the importance of food to correct hormonal imbalances. The fact is that what we do every day and how we choose to nourish ourselves has an effect on our overall wellbeing. That is specially important during perimenopause and menopause. There is always hormone replacement therapy available however; did you know that innocent little seeds can help us boost our estrogen and progesterone levels?
As we make our journey through our 40s and beyond, we can expect a lot of physical, emotional, and mental changes. There are also a few adjustments when it comes to the bedroom, and I’m not talking about sexual desire…although that is an issue as well. No, I want to talk about vaginal atrophy.
In my previous article, I wrote about blood sugar levels during and after menopause. As women get older, hormone changes before and during menopause often cause hot flashes, irritability and sleep deprivation. These drops or spikes in the hormones not only impact your mood and life, but they can also affect your blood sugar.
