Overview - Menopause
Menopause is the time that marks the end of a woman’s menstrual cycles. It is a natural biological process and is diagnosed after a woman has gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Skipping periods during perimenopause is common and expected. Often, menstrual periods will skip a month and return, or skip several months and then start monthly cycles again for a few months. Periods also tend to happen on shorter cycles, so they are closer together.
Hormonal changes during menopause can cause a range of skin issues and discomfort, including sweating and itchiness. This is because of the vital role that the hormone estrogen plays in skin health. Another common physical symptom includes hot flashes, and the emotional symptoms of menopause may disrupt sleep, lower energy, and/or affect emotional health.
In the months or years leading up to menopause (perimenopause), a woman might experience these signs and symptoms:
• Irregular periods
• Vaginal dryness
• Hot flashes (Hot flashes can vary in frequency and intensity. How long symptoms last varies greatly. On average, symptoms persist for more than seven years. Some women have them for more than 10 years.)
• Night sweats
• Sleep problems
• Mood changes
• Weight gain and slowed metabolism
• Thinning hair and dry skin
• Loss of breast fullness
Symptoms, including changes in menstruation, are different for every woman.
Hot flashes are sudden feelings of warmth, which are usually most intense over the face, neck and chest. Often the skin becomes inflamed and might redden. Although other medical conditions can cause them, hot flashes most commonly are due to menopause — the time when menstrual periods become irregular and eventually stop. In fact, hot flashes are the most common symptom of the menopausal transition.
Causes of hot flashes
The complex hormonal changes that accompany the ageing process, in particular the declining levels of estrogen as a woman approaches menopause, are said to be the underlying cause of hot flashes. A disorder in thermoregulation (methods the body uses to control and regulate body temperature) is responsible for the heat sensation. Some causes also include changes in reproductive hormones and in hypothalamus, which becomes more sensitive to slight changes in body temperature.
Not all women who go through menopause have hot flashes, and it's not clear why some women do have them.
Factors that may increase the risk of experiencing menopause include:
• Smoking- Women who smoke are more likely to get hot flashes.
• Obesity- A high body mass index (BMI) is associated with a higher frequency of hot flashes.
• Ethnicity- More African-American women report menopausal hot flashes than do women of European descent. Hot flashes are less common in women of Japanese and Chinese descent than in white European women.
An Ayurvedic Perspective
Ayurveda is a traditional Indian medicine and is thought to be one of the oldest systems of healthcare in the world. A system of both preventative and curative medicine, it has been practiced for at least 5000 years. According to Ayurveda, five elements make up the universe — vayu (air), jala (water), akash (space), teja (fire), and prithvi (earth). These elements are believed to form three different doshas, which are defined as types of energy that circulate within your body. Each dosha is responsible for specific physiological functions, and an individual’s mental and emotional characteristics are decided by this constitution.
Menopause is a culmination of all three doshas of the woman’s body. The menses themselves are pitta, while the woman may gain weight during this time, which indicates kapha imbalance. Since the woman may experience varying moods and even lose her sleep during menopause, there is a strong indication of the vata dosha.
• Vata-type menopausal symptoms tend to include feelings of depression, anxiety, and insomnia
• Pitta-type symptoms tend to include feelings of anger and experience hot flashes
• Kapha type symptoms include feelings of lethargy, weight gain and have feelings of mental and physical heaviness.
