Perimenopause or pre-menopause is a relatively new term coined in the last twenty years by the medical community to describe symptoms caused by normal hormonal fluctuations that occur as a woman moves closer to her menopause. These symptoms can be broad-ranging and diffuse and differ for every woman, causing a lot of confusion and anxiety. And the younger you are, the more confused and worried you may be. The most common include irregular and/or heavy bleeding, insomnia, night sweats and/or hot flashes, worsening PMS, migraine, vaginal dryness and abdominal weight gain on the physical front. On the emotional front, changing hormones are linked to increased bouts of anxiety, depression, irritability and intense mood swings. Many women have experienced chest pain or palpitations from their hormonal imbalance. It’s also true that not every woman experiences symptoms (about 40%). A woman may go in and out of a perimenopausal state for as many as 10-13 years before she arrives at true menopause (the average age of which is 52 in the US). This means that it is perfectly normal, in fact natural, for a woman as young as 40 to begin feeling foreign and seemingly inexplicable changes in her body and emotions. … Continue reading What is perimenopause? →

A good digestive system enables good health. If we enjoy good digestion, the food we eat is absorbed and carried to its destination. However, at times, the food simply passes through the intestines without being digested, which make us feel uneasy and bloated. Many people are weighed down with annoying conditions such as nausea, bloating, gas, abdominal cramps, lack of appetite, foul smelling stools, or constipation alternating with diarrhea. Emotional stress is known to aggravate these symptoms, which are collectively known as the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). IBS is characterized by a disturbance in the movement of the Gastro Intestinal (GI) tract. Wittingly or unwittingly, many of us abuse our GI tract with our habits of overeating and consuming excess quantity of sugar, coffee, alcohol, and maida. Further, inadequate chewing, lack of fiber, irregular eating hours, inadequate rest, and stress all add up to abuse our GI tract. A poorly functioning GI tract could be the root cause of several health issues. It is often confusing to know whether you really have IBS because most disorders of IBS and GI tract display similar symptoms. Moreover, there are a few other conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitus that display … Continue reading What is irritable bowel syndrome →
