When I started my journey to find relief of my menopausal symptoms I found it was the small steps that helped lead to big relief.

Whatever remedies you choose for menopause relief don’t overlook your diet during the menopausal years. Diet plays an important part in helping to relieve menopausal symptoms.

When experiencing menopause symptoms or perimenopause symptoms, good nutrition is important. Eat nutrient-rich foods including vegetables, fruits, quality protein sources and healthy fats.

Nutrients such as magnesium, calcium and vitamin D become increasingly important. Calcium, magnesium and vitamin D can help with bone density as we age, and magnesium can help with stress and sleep. A reduction in carbohydrate intake is recommended especially highly processed carbohydrates and high-sugar foods.

Weight gain often accompanies perimenopause and menopause due to dropping levels of estrogen. When estrogen drops the body reacts by storing fat typically in the abdominal region. Fat stores increase the production of estrogen to try to make up for decreasing estrogen output from the ovaries.

Decrease your carb intake. As you decrease your carb intake, increase your protein intake from high quality protein sources like fish, poultry, dairy, beans, nuts and seeds.

Being aware of what your eating and trying to get regular exercise combined with an all natural menopause supplement like Internal Balance is a powerful combo in helping relieve your menopause symptoms.

Put yourself on a simple plan, it doesn’t need to be complex. Small changes can make a world of difference and really help relieve menopausal symptoms.
