Top 5 Ways to Delay Menopause Naturally

Want to Delay your Menopuse? Here is the 5 ways that really works

Every woman will inevitably go through menopause. It is a phase of life we can’t escape from. Although menopause is often associated with different uncomfortable symptoms such as depression, mood swings, anxiety, hot flashes and night sweats, it is also a cause for celebration. If you are going through menopause, the amount of estrogen in your body gradually decreases. It is a time when you don’t have to worry about painful menstruations[1], unplanned pregnancies and even birth control.

Top 5 Ways to Delay Menopause Naturally

menopause and its symptoms

However, some women may still prefer to at least delay the onset of menopause and its symptoms. You may not be able to completely prevent it, but you can at least prepare yourself and your body for the changes it is about to face. So, here are the top 5 ways to delay menopause naturally.

Engage in Exercise

Menopause sets in because the body is starting to age. With the excessive amount of toxins and pollution our bodies face every day, we become more susceptible to aging. By engaging in exercises, you are improving blood flow and circulation, strengthening your heart, bones and muscles. The stronger your body feels, the less prone you are to sickness, and the more possible it is for you to have more periods.

Supply Your Body with Vitamins and Antioxidants

As you age, the body becomes depleted of vitamins and antioxidants that can further speed up the process of aging. Vitamins and antioxidants are essential substances the body needs to further strengthen it, fight free radical damage and promote hormonal balance. Give your body ample supplies of necessary vitamins from fruits and vegetables as well as supplements.

Do Not Smoke

According to the research conducted by NYC Langone Medical Center, quitting smoking can help you delay menopause naturally[2]. Smoking promotes poor blood circulation and can cause aging of the cells faster.

Enrich Your Diet with Phytoestrogens

Phytoestrogens are plant-based estrogens that mimic the function of real estrogen in the body. Although they are relatively weaker than real estrogen in the body, they can also help delay menopause naturally because they have the capability to attach to estrogen receptors and make menopause come a little later. You may get your daily supply of phytoestrogen[3] from soy based food such as tofu.

You may also use herbs which are likewise rich in phytoestrogen. Black cohosh and dong quai can help you delay and alleviate the symptoms associated with early menopause.

Conclusion

The best way to actually delay menopause is to live a healthy lifestyle. By being conscious of what you eat, exercising regularly and doing away with bad habits, you can deal with menopause later in life. Since menopause will still come at one point or another, you can at least make it easier and more comfortable for yourself.
