Ayurvedic View on Menopause

Podcast: Ayurveda & Menopause

Even though the menopause is a completely natural process, many women find it difficult to cope with this new phase of life. During the menopause, production of the two hormones oestrogen and progesterone slowly stops. This hormonal change is accompanied by symptoms such as hot flushes, headaches and mood swings – to name just a few. All of these symptoms can be very distressing for women, especially as the menopause is often associated with a certain negative stigma in the western world. The Ayurvedic View on Menopause is different.

Ayurvedic teachings see the menopause as something that is part of a woman’s natural life cycle. With the right Ayurvedic treatment, the symptoms of menopause can be well managed, making the journey into this new phase of life much easier for women.

Ayurveda has very valuable insights and recommendations for this special time in a woman’s life. In this podcast, Dr Sujatha explains the Ayurvedic View on Menopause and will tell you all the key information you need to know.
