Menopause Natural Herbal Ayurvedic Treatments In Melbourne Australia

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:

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.
