Symptoms of the Menopause
When we talk about the menopause, we often think about hot flushes and that’s it. Until you’ve actually experienced it, you can’t imagine the possibilities that the menopause can throw at you. There are so many physical and psychological symptoms and every woman is different. Even mums and daughters can vary in the time they experience their symptoms, the range of symptoms and the severity of how they experience them.
In days gone by, women were expected to just get on with it but with advances in modern medicines, there are a variety of ways to control your symptoms. NICE Guidelines recommend HRT is offered as the drug of choice for symptoms of the menopause but if you’re either not able to take it or would prefer not to, then Hypnotherapy is a realistic non-medicalized alternative.
So how can Hypnotherapy help my menopause?
- It can help you to manage your hot flushes
- It can help you to deal with your anxiety
- It can help you to cope with panic attacks
- It can help you to tackle weight gain
- It can help you to deal with your low mood
- It can help you to come to terms with changes in your body
- It can help to improve your libido
- It can help you to cope with changes in your sleep patterns
There is an increasing amount of evidence that hypnotherapy* can help women experiencing a variety of symptoms associated with the menopause. Hot flushes, panic attacks, stress and anxiety can all be reduced with the help of hypnosis to help you cope with your symptoms while avoiding medication such as HRT and allow you to just get on with your life and feel an element of control in a time of change.
The menopause is an inevitable part of being a woman but the symptoms don’t have to be.
