There are a large number of essential oils and supplements that can support this transition, so here I will share my personal protocol, its what I’ve used to manage my transition and have been able to share with many clients with great effect.
There is no governing body regarding essential oils, Purity is key for effectiveness. Any oil can say its therapeutic grade, but these alls may not be pure, may have fillers and the plants they come from may not have high levels and quality of the compounds within which is why I use DoTerra. Yes, they are more expensive, but if you want to know more about why I use them click here for more details
The perimenopause marks the transition to the menopause ( marked at 1 year after your last period), and there are 2 stages, whch i will tr y to loosely clarify. Loosely as these fluctuations can vary.
There are 2 stages to the perimenopause:
- Progesterone, natures calmer drops, well plummets and as a result it’s common to experience anxiety, mood swing, sleep disturbance, early morning waking, brain fog. Due to this drop, oestrogen now is not opposed and as a result is in dominance resulting in heavy periods, increased pain similar to endometriosis in many, passing clots, and irregular cycles.
- Oestrogen then starts to fall, resulting in sore breasts, brain fog, irregular periods, sleep disturbance, joint pain, night seats, hot flushes, low libido, brain fog, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, weight gain, thinning hair….
Not everyone experiences the same
It’s important to point out that not everyone experiences symptoms and some women sail through, while others really struggle, with a whole host of variance in between.
This supports the idea that there is a possibility that many of the symptoms could be adrenal fatigue. This is significant, as when oestrogen levels drop, the adrenals take up the slack and produce some oestrogen. Clever eh?
But, when you are experiencing regular stress, anxiety, worry, your adrenals are working too hard and can’t take up the slack.
So, its not just about replacing hormones, it’s about supporting the adrenals and other body systems too, such as the liver and digestion.
