The menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. It's diagnosed after you've gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Menopause can happen in your 40s or 50s, but the average age of having symptoms of the menopause is 50.
The menopause is a natural biological process, but the physical symptoms, such as hot flushes, and emotional symptoms of menopause usually disrupt your sleep, lower your energy and / or affect emotional health. There's many effective treatments available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy. However one of symptoms of the menopause besides depression, anxiety, hot flushes and night sweats can often be lack of sleep. Is this you?
Do you owe it to yourself to at least try a possible solution?
What can be done?
Many people are now turning towards more natural ways to help solve sleeping issues. The Sleep Better Pillow Mist seen here contains no chemical nasties, just an organic natural blend of Lavender, Eucalyptus and Chamomile, so when it's lightly misted (usually non-staining) on your pillow at night (just once on each corner of your pillow), the gentle aroma helps you to relax and to breathe more easily. It's very popular, not only because you don't have to swallow any chemicals in the form of sleeping pills, but because it's non-addictive, non-allergenic and actually works! A 100ml bottle costs just £19+post (UK price) and usually lasts 3-6 months.
