Raise your hand if you are going through perimenopause or menopause and are miserable??? I know that I am. One month I get my period, and the next three months, nothing at all. Between the months, I get cramps, I’m extremely irritable, and my stomach bloating is off the charts. Also, I am dealing with enlarged fibroids, which makes me feel like I am pregnant. It also inhibits me from doing any sort of high-intensity workouts.
Anyway, enough of my complaining; what am I doing to help with my symptoms? Between myself and my health providers, we have come up with a straightforward solution.
The most important direction I received was to go off all meds. I was taking progesterone and estrogen patches. These two items were not chemically great for me and, in fact, making my fibroids grow.
Its been about a month now since I’ve been off the meds and I am feeling significantly better.
I have also been drinking a new smoothie every day that I love from Pause Protein. The Perimenopause and Multi-Supplement come in two flavors, chocolate, and vanilla. A serving is 120 calories, 20g of protein, and 6 natural botanicals that support menopause. The protein powder also includes 26 vitamins and minerals. I love to drink it after a workout.

Hydrotherapy for Uterine Fibroids uses castor oil applied at the lower abdomen and can stimulate blood circulation, which delivers nutrients and other beneficial substances to the cells and cleans away waste products. These treatments can also provide pain relief and help dissolve congestion in the pelvic area. Castor oil is made from the leaves of the castor oil plant.
