    Transition into Menopause

    How to smoothly transition into Menopause following Ayurvedic principles and treatments.

    Did you know that the transition into Menopause can be one of ease? Yet we are often taught to dread the symptoms that may accompany menopause. Thankfully, Ayurveda offers insight to assist in moving gracefully into the new phase of a woman’s life.

    As we move from the years of Pitta to the Vata phase of life, women experience hormonal changes in numerous ways. If a woman has a buildup of Ama in the body, the symptoms associated with menopause may be severe. This is why Ayurveda suggests regular and seasonal detoxification procedures.

    As estrogen starts to decrease it is important to balance both Vata and Pitta dosha through diet and lifestyle habits. These habits are preventative measures for maintaining bone health and preventing osteoporosis. Weight bearing exercise is suggested.

    It is important to take into consideration mental health during menopause. We have female clients who share their increased feelings of depression, anxiety, insomnia, anger, irritability during this time of transition. A combination of pranayama, yoga and meditation can be very beneficial in easing menopausal symptoms.

    Each woman’s treatment program is unique and will suit her individual needs. If you are interested in learning more, you’re welcome to call/text 0406 810 547 or email
