Menopause is a condition that every woman has to experience after a certain age.
It is a common biological phenomenon, which signifies the period usually after she has stopped menstruating. In simple words, this means that her reproductive system has stopped functioning.
To be more specific, it is the period when the ovaries stop producing the reproductive hormone named estrogen. And this is a common phenomenon that is seen in every woman normally when she reaches her mid 40s to 50s. However, this can take place prematurely due to various reasons and may also delay due to many reasons.
Ayurveda considers menopause as a natural phenomenon that is mandatory to take place. However, it tells all the women that menopause should not be considered as the end of youth or sexual urges, rather be enjoyed as the end to the youthful restrictions and welcome the greater freedom that the next life is awaiting. A proper Ayurvedic knowledge and understanding leads to the possibility to age gracefully.
Ayurveda defines menopause as a manifestation of the ‘doshas’ or imbalances of the hormones in the body that are taking place for a very long time and are being implemented in the form of the stop in menstrual cycle.
Ayurveda considers this as a signal that the body needs to take care of the health more from now onwards. There are many useful herbs and ayurvedic medicines, which help to ease in menopause and decrease menopausal symptoms.
