Raw Vegan Reduces Menopause Symptoms

Raw Vegan Reduces Menopause Symptoms

I have substantially reduced my Menopause symptoms with a Raw Vegan Diet and a couple natural supplements!

Generally between the ages of 45-55, women experience the following menopause symptoms with the peak of most symptoms occurring between the ages of 48-52 (I’m currently 50):
Hot Flashes
Night Sweats
Insomnia
Fatigue
Anxiety
Irritability
Vaginal Dryness
Memory Loss
Brain Fog
Weight Gain
Bloating
Headaches
Muscle Tension
allergies
Breast Pain
Joint Pain
Irregular Heart Beats including PVC’s (Pre-Ventricular Contractions) which can cause shortness of breath and chest pain

Over the years I have included some cooked vegan food in my diet for brief periods of time. Every time I do, all of the above symptoms get way worse! When I go back to eating a Raw Vegan diet (high fruit, low fat), my symptoms either completely disappear or are very minor.

With this in mind, these are my top 5 tips for reducing and possibly eliminating the above perimenopause and menopausal symptoms:

1) Eat a Raw Vegan Diet (High Fruit/Low Fat) – the more cooked food I added, the worse my symptoms became

2) Eat 3 Meals a day. Yes, I know Intermittent Fasting and eating one or two meals a day is big in the raw food world. If you are a woman going through menopause and are experiencing shortness of breath and/or chest pain, I have found that by eating 3 meals a day (spreading the volume of my food over 3 meals instead of 1 or 5), puts less pressure on my vagus nerve and causes less chest pain and shortness of breath.

3) Maintain a healthy body weight. (16-20% Body Fat)

4) For vaginal dryness and pain during intercourse, we have found that Astroglide (water based) really helps!

5) Supplements: I’m not a huge supplement person. I take B12 (1000 mcg) daily because I’m a raw vegan. Most cooked food has B12 added so I just take mine separately. For irregular heart beats I started taking Magnesium Glycinate (200mg) 5 days ago… Within 2 days, the chest pain and shortness of breath I’ve been struggling with for the past 8 months almost completely disappeared!

BONUS TIPS

I also read that by incorporating these guidelines, women can reduce and possibly eliminate Menopausal symptoms:

1) Breathing Exercises: 5 seconds in and 5 seconds out

2) Yoga and Meditation

3) Rooibos Tea (naturally decaffeinated) – Drink 1 cup before bed

4) Avoid or eliminate Caffeine & Alcohol! This was as big as eating raw vegan! Once I eliminate caffeine and alcohol, and started eating 100% raw vegan, my night sweats, hot flashes and insomnia completely disappeared.

I’m going to add here that these suggestions are all based on my personal experience. I’m not a doctor and this video and description are not medical advice.
