Post image for Hot Flashes & Stress in Perimenopause?  Breathe Deep with Zenytime!

If you’re looking for alternatives to hormone therapy to treat your symptoms of perimenopause, today’s sponsored post will be of great interest to you!  

Read on to learn about an exciting new App for your phone which will help you manage hot flashes and stress during perimenopause!

 

“If you practice deep breathing exercises regularly you can help control the number and severity of hot flashes” says Dr Oz. The exhalation should take twice as long as the inhalation.

Why does this work? According to Dr. Rubman, medical director of the Southbury Clinic for Traditional Medicines in Southbury (CT) it has to do with your blood.

When the pH level of blood becomes very slightly more acidic, the autonomic nervous system reacts, increasing the likelihood of hot flashes.

Yogic breathing helps to neutralize this slight pH imbalance by allowing better oxygenation of the blood and normalizing carbon dioxide saturation. “Restoring an optimal pH tends to calm and balance the autonomic nervous system, making hot flashes less intense and less frequent,” he said.

Many people use their breathing to help promote relaxation and reduce stress. Besides hot flashes the types of conditions that controlled breathing help include: Anxiety – Asthma – Chronic fatigue syndrome – Chronic pain – High blood pressure – Insomnia – Panic attacks – Stress.

Practice deep breathing to de-stress is as essential as any routine for good health and is often forgotten or overlooked during our busy days. Few minutes several times per day should already yield some results but you have to be consistent at it and know what to do.

Dear Magnolia…..About That Vertigo & Dizziness in Perimenopause

Thumbnail image for Dear Magnolia…..About That Vertigo & Dizziness in Perimenopause

It’s time for another “Dear Magnolia” installment.  I picked a comment by a reader by the name of “Michelle” for this post. Michelle has been having trouble with vertigo and dizziness in perimenopause, along with balance issues, brain fog, and feeling spaced out.  She said she also suffers with migraines and wacky periods. Typical perimenopause […]

Symptoms of Perimenopause Symptoms of Menopause

I thought it would be appropriate – and helpful – to follow up on a recent post I did on the difference between perimenopause and menopause and provide a list of the symptoms associated with each. Though the terms are often (and I’m guilty of the same) used interchangeably, they are not the same thing. Perimenopause is a transitional […]

Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness: The Riddle of Illness Revealed

Thumbnail image for Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness: The Riddle of Illness Revealed

It’s been hard for me to move away from this topic. Primarily because physicians like Dr. Hotze, and other healthcare providers, whom I respect, continue to address it. But, also because I think they are shining a necessary light on the issue of faulty testing procedures for hypothyroidism. Of course, the baby-boomer-rebel in me is […]

The Vivelle Dot: My Opinion So Far

Thumbnail image for The Vivelle Dot: My Opinion So Far

I have been using the Vivelle Dot, a transdermal, bioidentical estradiol for approximately one week now, and the verdict is in: I’m feeling better. The first thing I noticed after a couple of days of use, was the lifting of the brain fog.  The dense weight of short-term memory issues has not completely dissipated, but […]

Estrogen Replacement Therapy: Yes or No?

Thumbnail image for Estrogen Replacement Therapy: Yes or No?

Let’s face it.  The average women does not understand the role of estrogen during perimenopause.  But, when the average OB/GYN doesn’t seem to understand it very well either, is it any surprise then that women looking for help for their symptoms of perimenopause are clueless? It also doesn’t help that there is a big, wide […]

Today’s post is a letter I received recently from a reader.  Her story is typical and so it was something I wanted to share with you all in hopes that it will help you feel a little better about your journey through perimenopause.  Kathleen’s symptoms are not unique.   Her experience in trying to get […]

Wait……What was I saying?

Oh dear, it’s happened again! Occasionally, whilst talking to colleagues or friends/family my mind suddenly goes blank, it’s like someone pulling the plug and then there is…. Nothing! Just like a black hole! But, after a deep breath or two I can usually retrace my thoughts and get back on track. (Annoying thing is I […]

Perimenopause: Yes, it’s Real and No, You’re Not Going Crazy!

Thumbnail image for Perimenopause: Yes, it’s Real and No, You’re Not Going Crazy!

Feel better?  I could have used someone telling me that about 10 years ago when I walked right into one of the fiercest hormonal battles of my life. First of all, I had never heard of peri-anything.  Menopause?  Yeah.  I had heard of that.  My mom called it “the change,” and I knew that sooner […]
