If you’ve ever wondered why your mother or wife has begun to exhibit strange changes in their demeanour? Menapause could be a cause.. readon to find out more…

Menopause is the physiological cessation of menstruation in a woman, signalling the end of her natural reproductive period. Menopause is the strange and gradual age that every woman must go through at some point in her life. Although the average age for menopause is understood to be late forties to middle fifties, the exact age for menopause has not been established because it depends on many other physiological characteristics of an individual.

During menopause, a female’s body and mind must adjust to drastic changes, which take time, and those around her should provide her with ample support to do so. The gradual reduction, and eventually cessation, of the production of the female hormone Oestrogen is a significant event that occurs during menopause. Because oestrogen is a drug to the female body that she became accustomed to during puberty, abrupt withdrawal of the same will result in withdrawal syndrome, just like any other drug. These withdrawal symptoms can be seen in a woman’s behaviour, emotional state, responsiveness to situations, and others as premenopausal syndrome in many people.

Ayurveda and the Menopause Concept

A person’s age is divided into four stages, from birth to death, according to Ayurveda. Ritu Kala refers to a woman’s fertile period, which lasts from menarche to menopause. While menopause is known as Rajo Nivrutti, it refers to the end of Atharva Pravritti, or monthly bleeding cycles. According to Ayurvedic principles, the stage of life you are in has an impact on an individual’s overall health. Even though all three Doshas are present at all stages of life, each stage has its own dominant doshic involvement that propels the functions of that period.

The Doshic Situation

The Doshas, or bodily entities, are linked to both the mind and the body. During menopause, the dosha of mind Tamas becomes more dominant, causing the woman to experience more mood swings and negative thoughts. However, it is completely normal, and the body returns to its normal mental state as time passes.

In terms of bodily doshas, Some people approach this stage with relief because most of their responsibilities are over, while others approach it with sadness because their lives are about to change. The individual enters the Vata stage of life during menopause. While Vata does control all of the body’s mechanisms, we can better understand it by comparing it to how the neuroendocrine system works. However, when this entity has control over an entire stage, the results are not always favourable. In general, a Vata surge is observed, but both other entities exhibit sudden fluctuations, resulting in a wide range of irritability, from weight gain to hot flashes.

Ayurvedic Point of View

Oestrogen and progesterone levels drop dramatically during menopause, causing a slew of changes in the female body. In this case, the most affected constituent in the human body is Ojas, the quantum of immunity, and its manifestations. The essence of all tissue elements, the Ojas, transcends the end result of digestion. When hormones are out of whack, digestion suffers, resulting in an incorrect formation of Rasa, the first tissue element. As a result, subsequent tissue elements are not formed, affecting the Ojas and demonstrating reduced immunity.

Ayurveda Can Help You

While most menopause studies are rudimentary and preliminary, there is a growing body of evidence and findings that an alternative approach to menopause can be achieved to empower nourishment and balance. Every culture on the planet has used healing herbs as the foundation for medicine. Let us look at a few of them that promote effective menstruation.

Herbs used to treat menopause include the following:

1. Aloe Vera gel

The common adjacent in almost everything is also a vital source of phytoconstituents that provide hormones for the female endocrine system’s most optimal balance. It is also high in antioxidants, which may promote easy metabolism while also rehydrating the body from menstrual symptoms.

2. Asparagus

The root of Asparagus racemosus is a naturally galactagogue herb. Its milk decoction is extremely effective in treating menopausal symptoms such as vaginal discharge, night sweats, anxiety, and hot flashes. The amount of anxiety and hot flashes seen during menopause is generally the result of accumulated Pitta humour, which is regulated by the sweet taste and metabolic end effect of this herb.

3. Seeds of Methi

Fenugreek seeds are high in cold potency and astringency. It has natural hormone balancing properties and aids in the prevention of bloating and hot flashes. It is preferred to prepare Hima or a cold decoction with it.

4. The Ashoka Plant

In Ayurveda, this plant is known as Stripriya, indicating its importance in female-related issues. Saraca asoca heartwood is excellent for significantly improving ovarian functions.

5. Arjuna 

The oestrogen level in the female system drops during menopause, and as a result, heart functions are generally influenced. The heartwood of Terminalia arjuna is rich in cardiac support functions and aids the body’s recovery from menopausal symptoms.

6. Ela

Green cardamom, the emerald of spices, has cold potency with astringent metabolic end effect and the best ability to enhance mood with pleasant smell and Pitta alleviating properties. It can be used to improve mental health and avoid the occurrence of frequent mood swings.

7. Guggulu 

As the hormones go haywire, there is a greater likelihood of unexpected weight manifestations during this period. The oleoresinous gum of Commiphora mukul is the most effective treatment for Meda Avritha Vata or conditions characterized by excessive fat tissue accumulation as a result of poor body mechanics.
