Is it me or Menopause?

Have you ever wondered how the reproductive hormones influence our bodies to an unimaginable extent and cause multiple health problems that crop up when women are post-menopause?

 

Well, the simple answer is – the withdrawal of reproductive hormones, especially estrogen, leads to the removal of its protective effects (think of it like a shield!) on the health of several organ systems. How is it possible for a single chemical to have such a massive impact on the body?

Girls just wanna have...

Being multitaskers, women often set high standards for themselves and strive to be at their full capacity every single day. We all have seen others do it (even criticized?), done it ourselves, know that it takes a toll on us, and yet continue to do the same.

Happy new year

Have you gained weight around your waist as well? 

While this can be utterly frustrating, it is just the way our bodies work around midlife. With the reproductive hormones fluctuating during pre -menopause, our ‘well-meaning’ bodies put out their best efforts to protect the internal organs by depositing abdominal fat.

Unpause, one step at a time

 

Women spend a third of their lives post-menopause, yet the topic is under-researched and underfunded. This is a systemic problem. Some studies in the US have shown that most medical schools and programs don’t teach aspiring physicians about menopause. 77.5% of GPs in the UK expressed that there is a need to improve training provided on menopause in medical school and GP training.

 

At Miyara, we believe in talking about perimenopause and menopause at every opportunity we get.

Sugar, honey.. honey

This past week, this is what we tried as a challenge with the Miyara folk on our closed WhatApp group.

The rules were:

- No desserts, cakes and sweets, ice cream, cookies, cakes, table sugar, etc.

- Naturally occurring sugars, however, like those found in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products (lactose), are fine.

- Read your food labels.

The ME in Menopause

 

We strongly believe that a multi-faceted strategy is necessary for us to stay strong and navigate the unpredictable phase of the menopausal transition. While hormonal changes are inevitable during this life stage, it is possible to minimize their effect on our physical and mental health by making tangible changes to our lifestyle. What can stop you from taking charge of your health when you have the right information and tools?

Menopause awareness month

So many women I’ve talked to see menopause as an ending. But I’ve discovered this is your moment to reinvent yourself after years of focusing on the needs of everyone else. It’s your opportunity to get clear about what matters to you and then to pursue that with all of your energy, time and talent.”

— Oprah Winfrey.

We, at Miyara, resonate with Oprah’s outlook on menopause. It is not something to be scared of if we prepare ourselves mentally, physically, and most importantly, with sufficient credible information. With knowledge comes the clarity to express yourself to carers and the motivation to proactively seek help or take actions necessary to tackle symptoms.

Taboo Talk

"That’s when all of us hear whispers of a seemingly unwanted guest that might arrive many years into our future. We might even have casually joked with friends about “hot flashes or mood swings”.

 

The reality is that we are far from prepared. It's neither a dining table conversation,  nor do our peers know enough about it. "

Want a Peek into your overall health?

Track your period!

This is precisely why your menstrual cycle is more than just a reproductive process. In recent years, experts have gathered adequate and compelling evidence to believe that the menstrual cycle can be an indicator of a person’s general health status. 

In fact, this idea has taken the shape of a period literacy movement titled “Period as the fifth vital sign” in some parts of the world. 

Along these lines, we too believe that tracking your period can provide you the advantage of detecting several disorders or abnormalities that need medical attention. We bet you won’t believe how many there are."

Fun, fit and fab!

 

There is enough evidence that being active through adulthood, especially midlife, can greatly reduce the risk of several problems typically associated with old age in women, especially osteoporosisdiabetes and heart diseases, and even dementia.

 

Are you not someone who is used to regular physical activity at any point in your life? Unsure where to start Or what kind of activity is suitable for you?
