Menopause, the natural end of a woman's menstrual cycle that marks the end of fertility, is a difficult stage of life for most women because it comes with many mental and physical health challenges.
If you are at this stage, it is essential to know that you are not alone. I went into perimenopause early due to having my ovary removed. My hormones were always going crazy, and I usually felt the urge to slap people across their faces for no apparent reason. I was super aggressive and had deep bouts of sadness.
At first, I began to treat these symptoms with Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). HRT worked just fine until I decided I did not want to be dependent on drugs or rely on it for too long; hence I had to quit. I changed my treatment method altogether into Hypnotherapy.
This has helped me a great deal at the onset of introducing it into my routine; I discovered that I could reduce my dosage of HRT, and the feeling of aggressively disappeared, and the constant bout of sadness followed it as well.
Although it can happen when women are in their forties or fifties, on average, women experience menopause when they are in their early fifties. However, medical conditions such as pelvic or ovarian damage, genetics, and other underlying conditions could lead to a cessation of a woman's menstrual cycle earlier in life.
As much as 85% of women in the United Kingdom reported experiencing hot flashes during menopause. Here, the body regulates temperature between set thresholds within a few tenths of a degree above or below 37C.
Disturbed sleep or lack of sleep or the fear of dementia, which happens due to foggy thinking and memory issues, can lead to a great deal of anxiety, while your hormones would influence your temper and mood. Other challenges associated with menopause include weight gain, depression, low confidence, fear, and stress.
All these symptoms can affect your relationship with your partner, family, even friends. I was always overthinking and aggressive to people for no apparent reason. People even began to think I was going crazy or something. Your partner could find you scary or even doubt if, indeed, it is you!
Hypnotherapy is a way of harnessing your brain's natural physiological and psychological powers to implement specific changes that your desire. It is a highly effective method of combating menopausal symptoms.
Using Hypnotherapy, I learned to regain control over my body, reduce the hot flashes, tackle insomnia, relax, and reduce stress and anxiety. Hypnotherapy effectively relieved my hot flashes by 70% after a few weeks, reducing both the flushing's intensity and frequency.
Adequate sleep is often one of the prices paid for menopause. When the estrogen levels always remain high when I tried to sleep or sleep, this will interrupt my sleep and reduce my sleep quality.
Frequent hot flushes and night sweet also interrupt my sleep and the stress and anxiety that accompanies it make it even more difficult for me to get sleep or go back to sleep again after being aroused from sleep. Learning some simple hypnotherapy techniques
Hypnotherapy is not something to be scared of, it is not harmful, and neither is a form of mind control. In summary, various researches carried out on Hypnotherapy show that it is incredibly helpful for managing anxiety, overcoming sleep disorders, managing stress and its related disorders, and reducing hot flushes' intensity and frequency during menopause.
