Ayurveda's Wisdom for Menopause: Natural Treatment Strategies



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.

Causes of Menopause Hot Flashes 

The normal menstruation cycle is a very scientific one. Every woman has a certain number of eggs that she contains in her ovaries from the time of her birth. The ovaries also release or secrete two important reproductive hormones and those are progesterone and estrogen. Along with these two hormones, the eggs are released from the ovaries through the menstrual cycle every month.

During menopause ovaries stop secreting eggs and releasing sufficient hormones, so the menstruation cycle stops. Due to this hormonal decline and reduced ovarian functions, women experience some physical and mental symptoms. These symptoms are known as postmenopausal symptoms.

There are three basic stages of natural menopause. All women have to undergo under normal biological circumstances. These stages cannot be manipulated at any condition.


  1. Perimenopause: This occurs before the one to two years of menopause. During this time, a woman encounters some symptoms of menopause and proceeds towards menopause as the estrogen levels drop radically and the eggs come to an end.
  2. Menopause: This is the time when the woman experiences an absence of menstrual cycle for a period more than a year. The ovaries stop releasing eggs and estrogen.
  3. Postmenopause: In this stage, a woman experiences a reduced level of menopausal symptoms. But the risk of health increases as estrogen secretion stops.


Symptoms of Menopause

Menopause comes along with quite some symptoms that clearly pronounce the coming of it. The most common one is hot flashes. This is a feeling of warmth on the upper part of the body differs from woman to woman. Whereas most women have a mild sensation of body heat along with sweat and blushes, some other experience severe warmth and hot flashes in the body. However many other symptoms will clearly indicate that menopause is approaching. They are:


  1. Irregular periods
  2. Mood swings
  3. Vaginal dryness
  4. Night sweat
  5. Fatigue
  6. Sleep problem
  7. Depression and irritation
  8. Headache
  9. Weight gain
  10. Bladder control problem
  11. Loss of breast fullness
  12. Change in sexual urge
  13. Thinning of hair
  14. Increased heart rate


Risk Factors and Complications of Menopause


Although it is a natural phenomenon, the utility of menstrual cycle and the adverse effect of menopause, are distinctly noticed in some or the other way in almost every woman. The main reason behind these adverse effects is the absence or loss of the useful hormone called estrogen that obstacle many diseases in the woman body. The risk and health complications that a woman experiences post this, are huge.

  1. Osteoporosis: This is the most common risk that a woman has to endear post menopause and that is the breakage and weakness of bones.
  2. Vaginal looseness: Most women face the vaginal looseness leading to urinary incontinence. In simple words, they face urinary leakage during laughing, coughing, sneezing and jogging. The muscle around the vaginal area looses.
  3. Diabetes: Many women face an increased blood sugar level as the estrogen and progesterone levels are decreased. An increased testosterone level affects the regulation of blood sugar leading to diabetes.
  4. Heart disease: Due to the loss of estrogen, the metabolism reduces and the woman tends to become fat. This leads to fat deposition in the blood vessels and results in high blood pressure, cardio vascular diseases, stroke and many more.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

    Nakhat Shabbir

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.

  • It was a wonderful experience with u guys.A natural way to fight the disease with no side effects of treatment.

    Harmeet Kaur

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
