The Menopause and how FIREBIRD can help


October is Menopause Awareness month and so we would like to let you know which FIREBIRD products offer you the best support for the smoothest transition through this period of change.

Firstly, what is menopause?
Menopause marks a point at which a woman’s oestrogen levels fall to a level at which she has not menstruated for 12 straight months. It usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. The period leading up to this threshold, which can last up to ten years and during which a woman can experience a wide range of symptoms from hot flashes and brain fog to insomnia and anxiety, is called the perimenopause.

It may be useful to remember that the menopause and the perimenopause, while often accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms, are not ailments, but instead natural processes. They mark a transition from the ability to procreate through the monthly release of an egg and oestrogen to a new balance not based upon fertility.

During the monthly cycle, women experience hormonal fluctuations. The more extreme these fluctuations are, the more discomfort we can experience in terms of symptoms such as mood swings, insomnia, tiredness, food cravings, cramps, etc.

Similarly, during perimenopause and menopause, the more extreme the fluctuations are, the more severe the symptoms. So, supporting balance is key to reducing the extreme hormonal swings responsible for the worst symptoms of the monthly menstrual cycle swings, perimenopause and menopause.

Hormones work as an orchestra in the body; when in balance, the result is optimum health and well-being, but, when one hormone goes off-balance, it has a disrupting influence on the whole symphony. Human growth hormone (HGH) has been identified as the body's master hormone, the conductor that keeps all members of the orchestra in tune, in step and best contributing to the greatest good of the whole. Its levels decline as we age, but it can be naturally promoted through the integration of three amino acids, glutamine, arginine and lysine.

Taken in the evening (in DEEP SLEEP), this unique amino acid combination naturally stimulates the youthful release of the body’s own human growth hormone. Youthful levels of HGH regenerate and rebalance our whole body to give us more youthful skin, hair and nails; healthy lean muscle; greater strength and endurance; a stronger, more responsive immune system; stronger energy levels, especially in the morning upon waking up; and improved mental clarity and alertness. HGH also balances our hormonal system. So, it can help with menopausal issues and protect bone density as we grow older.

MAGNESSENCE and BODYBLISS help counteract insulin resistance, which can be responsible for weight gain, fatigue and hormonal imbalances, especially during menopause, restoring vitality, strength and balance. MAGNESSENCE also contains vitamins A, C, D and E, turmeric, zinc and magnesium, known to alleviate PMS and menopausal symptoms.

It can also be useful to think of menopause as a transition into a new form of creativity. The child-bearing years offer the opportunity to create a new life and raise children, while menopause ushers in a different form of creativity; it is a period of life in which women can instead focus on birthing new ideas or revisiting old, forgotten dreams. If embraced and lived fully as a journey to greater self-expression, it can be the start of a very fulfilling new chapter of life to live to the fullest.
