Understanding Menopausal Rage

 
Let's talk about one of the lesser known symptoms of menopause/midlife - RAGE 🤬
 
Maybe your life on the outside is hunky dory but every now and again (probably more than you'd like), you become possessed by an anger that you've never experienced before.
 
There's an explosion, just like a volcano and some of the people around you are getting a bit scared.
 
You're doing all the right things... you're eating well, trying to sort your sleep out and you're exercising, but nothing can keep a lid on this anger.
 
Maybe your hormones are fluctuating or maybe all your shit feels like it's coming to the surface.... fear not.... I have some answers.

Are you in your 40’s or early 50’s and feel like you’re going a bit mad sometimes?  You’re not alone.  It could be the onset of peri menopause.  The effect of menopause usually starts in the brain not in the reproductive organs and, as a result, massively impacts our mental health.    If you’ve been diagnosed with anxiety disorder it could actually be a symptom of peri menopause.  If you want to learn more and also find out how you can help, please watch my video it’s 29 mins.

The Placebo Effect: How to Positively Affect Your Menopause

 
"It’s all in your mind". That’s what was previously thought about the placebo effect, but according to much research, we know that’s not true.
 
There are real molecular changes that happen in the brain and body when someone is given a placebo.   
 
What we’re really talking about here is the power of 'expectation', and the chemical changes that happen in the body as a result of a positive or negative expectation that we have about a drug or a complementary therapy.  It's actually flipping amazing.
 
The question is then, can we tap into expectation, belief and conditioning to help us have a better menopause experience?
 
I think we can.
 
I don’t have all the answers, but I do have some suggestions. 
 
If you’re curious like me and believe that the power to positively affect our health is in our hands, you might like this video.

How Your Mind Can Affect Your Menopause

 

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that I believe your mind has the power to affect your experience of your menopause (including your symptom severity). 

 

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few years (and I wouldn’t blame you if you had) you’ve probably heard about the power of the imagination.  When it comes to our immune system, our nervous system and our endocrine system (ok, ALL our systems actually) the imagination can have an impact(directly and indirectly). 

 

Remember nothing happens in isolation in the body.

 

Don’t take my word for it, look at the science. 

 

In a study done in 2004 by scientists at The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Lerner Research Institute in Cleveland they found that by simply imagining repeating an exercise over and over again, you can an increase in muscle strength by 35% Ref: Pg: 77 ‘How Your Mind Heals Your Body’ by David R Hamilton.

How PTSD Can Affect Menopause & What You Can Do About It

 

"I'm stuck on the ceiling and I can't come down." Is the response that one of my clients gave me and boy can I empathise. That hyper aroused, hyper vigilant feeling that won't let you sleep, rest or have healthy relationships.

Truthfully, there's not been enough research done to make specific conclusions on the link between PTSD and menopause but taking an educated guess, I would bet my bottom dollar that generally speaking PTSD does make menopause worse.  That's why I've just done a very important piece of content around it. 

But, you know what, the most interesting thing is, PTSD doesn't have to be linked to natural disasters, or exposure to bombs or killings.  Did you know that someone with chronic anxiety can end up with PTSD like symptoms too?  Any kind of prolonged exposure to stress can cause PTSD, even PTSD itself makes PTSD worse.  It's a vicious cycle. 

So, having a bad experience with menopause, being body shamed and your moods not being taken...
