Menopause is a condition representing end of reproductive stage in a female's life span. The cessation of menstruation at about age between 40-50 is called menopause.
What Happens during Menopause ?
Ovaries are the female hormones producing organ. The ovaries also produce the eggs for fertilization and formation of embryo after conception. The ovaries start to shrink and also stop producing the hormone estrogen and others. Estrogen is a hormone which is really responsible to maintain female’s general well being, bone strength. Since the ovaries are not producing these hormones, the female becomes more prone to bone weakness and reduced bone marrow density.
The calcium supplementations are recommended and they do help but still not much as the calcium needs estrogen hormone to get deposited on the bones. Calcium also needs exercise to get deposited on the bones.
So it is best advised that a female should exercise (the leg raising exercises, yoga and aerobics if possible) especially before attaining the age of menopause so that the calcium taken by diet gets deposited on the bones and they do not get weak in the absence of estrogen after menopause.
Treatment of Menopause
There are many menopause herbal remedies which can be used for the symptoms experienced by women.
These are black cohosh, Saraca asoca, Shatavari, pushyanug churna, pradarantak churna, praval panchamrit, lodhra (symplocus racemosa) and one of the best - The Naari Kalyan Churna.
Asoca (In Pradarantak Churna) has probably been studied more than most of the herbal preparations that are phytoestrogens or plant estrogens. Shatavari and Asoca has some biological components that are very similar to the estrogen that a female produces naturally. Researchers feel now that the Black Cohosh binds itself to the estrogen receptors that are in the body. They also feel that performing this function it can reduce the amount of luteinizing hormone that is produced. This hormone is felt responsible for most of the temperature fluctuations that a woman feels during her menopausal years.
