Condition Specific Nutrition – Perimenopause

Updated: Jun 7

Perimenopause Papers

At birth a female has approximately 1 million eggs (ova) which drop to about 300,000 at puberty. Only 400 actually mature during the reproductive years. The absence of active follicles reduces estrogen and progesterone, causing the pituitary to increase follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in large and continuous quantities. During the change, but before the eggs are completely depleted, there is a period of time in many women when ovulation becomes irregular and normal cycling of hormones becomes greatly amplified, creating strange hormonal swings. A woman may not have a period for several months, followed by a massive flow.

Perimenopause is the 10 to 15 years before menopause and everything after the periods have stopped for one year is Postmenopause. Women with exhausted adrenals, low levels of thyroid hormones and a congested liver will have the more difficult time during the peri-menopause years. Perimenopause is characterized by hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, loss of sex drive, dry skin and mucous membranes, hastened signs of aging, headaches, night sweats, vaginal dryness and itching, and disturbed sleep.

What is needed is a nutritional that can pamper the systems and stabilize the fluctuation of hormones without hampering a woman’s God-given functions.
