Menopause Help

menopausalMenopause is not a disease that needs to be cured, or a time of loss that needs to be mourned but a natural transition in every woman’s life. Menopause officially represents the end of menstruation. This should be seen as a welcome change in a womens body – no more periods or pregnancy concerns (Menopause is nature’s natural contraceptive).

Estrogen at the right level plays an important role in the bodies of both men and women such as diabetes protection, regulation of appetite and energy expenditure in the brain.
