Menopause Symptoms

A comprehensive guide to menopause symptoms, causes and remedies

Women going through the menopause experience physical change because they have come to an end of their child-bearing years. Levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone drop significantly, and menstruation gradually declines.

For many menopausal women, a knock-on result of this can be osteoporosis (reduced density of the bones). This is because the presence of oestrogen helps to keep bones dense, and once supplies dwindle they become less solid. Extra calcium and magnesium are necessary to supplement the gap left by lack of estrogen. Fresh juices are a good source of these two minerals, as are food sources such as milk, cheese, fish, and nuts.

There is a number of juices that can be a great menopause and early menopause treatment:

3 large carrots
6 kale leaves

or

2 kiwi fruit
2 guavas
1 apple

or

6oz/175g strawberries
1 grapefruit

or

1/4 medium turnip
3 tomatoes
1 stalk celery

Each recipe makes approximately one 8fl oz/230ml glass of juice. Drink up to three glasses daily, but do vary the juice combinations for maximum benefit. Dilute with water if you prefer. Juice each ingredient then Mend using a spoon. These juices will surely help you through menopause.
