Causes of Menopause Tiredness / Fatigue
Like most symptoms of Menopause, a drop of estrogen and fluctuating hormone levels affects PreMenopause and PeriMenopause causing Menopause Tiredness. Often this happens as a chain reaction as anxiety, insomnia and menopause dizziness are usually precursors. Often women have to try to remind themselves that menopause tiredness is not only physical but can mental and emotional as well.
There are several things that you can do to overcome not only menopause tiredness that include:
A dropping level of estrogen causes cortisol to become imbalanced and therefore women can get overly tired and crash. Trans fats, refined sugar, high levels of caffeine, alcohol and refined grains can directly cause a cortisol overload. There is some good news ladies, dark chocolate is good for you and can lower cortisol levels! Other foods that lower cortisol include berries, black teas, wild salmon, garlic, olive oil and oats.
Exercise for menopause tiredness may seem like a contradiction, but getting some fresh air and walking can not only increase your energy, but it increases blood flow and mental wellness. Exercise does not need to be overdone, balance is the key.
Having sex frequently increases estrogen levels in women naturally, some women are so convinced by this that they report that all of their menopausal symptoms go away when they have sex a minimum of once per day.
Hormone replacement therapy or “HRT” is becoming a very popular solution for menopause. There have been many reported side effects include breast and ovarian cancer so please do your research before trying this method. Remember that Menopause is a natural transition for women; the best way to deal with it is naturally unless you have a medical condition.
