FACT OR FICTION: You’ll love these natural laws you were never taught in school.

In The News
Researchers from the North American Menopause Society found some women have a much easier time going through hormonal fluctuations associated with post-pregnancy and menopause - while others appear to have great difficulty.

Dr. JoAnn Pinkerton, executive director of the North American Menopause Society commented on the results of the study, saying in Science Daily:

"Women are more vulnerable to depressive symptoms during and after the menopause transition because of fluctuating hormone changes. This study additionally found a higher risk for depression in those with earlier menopause, fewer menstrual cycles over lifespan, or more frequent hot flashes. Women and their providers need to recognize symptoms of depression such as mood changes, loss of pleasure, changes in weight or sleep, fatigue, feeling worthless, being unable to make decisions, or feeling persistently sad and take appropriate action."


Daily Health Tip
It’s important to have as many menstrual cycles as your body needs throughout your life to reduce your risk of both depression and osteoporosis.

Making Changes
Steer clear of menstrual pills that reduce the number of time you have a menstrual cycle for convenience.
