Menopause is the result of a natural evolution. Nevertheless, studies conducted around the world show that differences in lifestyle, diet and physical activity can influence the intensity and type of symptoms experienced by women during menopause.
In general, we will put all the odds on his side by adopting the following preventive measures before 50 years, especially during the quarantine.
Favor foods that promote healthy bones and heart: rich in calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, phosphorus, boron, silica, vitamin K and essential fatty acids (including omega-3), but low in saturated fat, and providing Vegetable proteins instead of animal proteins;
Eat foods rich in phyto estrogen (soybeans, flax seeds, chickpeas, onions, etc.);
If necessary, take calcium and vitamin D supplements;
Regularly practice physical activity that makes the heart and joints work, as well as exercises of flexibility and balance;
Cultivate a positive attitude towards life
Remain sexually active
Practice Kegel exercises, both to combat urinary incontinence and to improve sexual life by increasing the tone of the vaginal muscles;
Do not smoke. In addition to damaging the bones and the heart, the tobacco destroys the estrogen.
In addition, as explained above, women, because they are postmenopausal, but mainly because they are advancing in age, are more at risk for osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, endometrial cancer and breast cancer. We will be careful to apply the preventive measures associated with these diseases.
