The Menopause Prayer and Care Journal

Evangelist Marie Cookie Hunter

 



Each year, 4 out of 5 women betweens
the ages of 40 and 55, (and some even earlier!) start the process of menopause,
the natural decline in estrogen that causes the
decrease in ovulation, thus the stoppage of menstruation.
Many of them, especially african- american women,
experience menopausal symptoms like
hot flashes, mood swings, decreased desire for sex,
memory loss and insomnia.
They are also at a greater risk of developing.

BREAST CANCER

HEART DISEASE

OSTEOPOROSIS

The challenge of recognizing these symptoms and treating them

has turned many lives upside- down!


Menopause is not a disease or an illness. It is a transition between two phases of a woman's life. Menopause occurs when a woman permanently stops menstruating (having periods).
Many women experience a variety of symptoms as a result of the hormonal changes associated with the transition through menopause. Around the time of menopause, women often lose bone density and their cholesterol may worsen, increasing their risk of heart disease.

Premature menopause: The average age of US women in whom menopause occurs is 51 years. The most common age range at which women experience menopause is 48-55 years. If menopause occurs in a woman younger than 40 years, it is considered premature. Menopause is considered late if it occurs in a woman older than 55 years. For most women, menopause is a normal occurrence.

Menopause is more likely to occur at a slightly earlier age in women who smoke, have never been pregnant, or live at high altitudes. If premature menopause occurs, a health care provider will check for other medical problems. About 1% of women experience premature menopause.

Perimenopause: The hormonal changes associated with menopause actually begin prior to the last menstrual period, during a 3- to 5-year period called perimenopause. During this transition, women may begin to experience menopausal symptoms and may lose bone density, even though they are still menstruating.

Surgical menopause: Surgical menopause is the removal of the ovaries. Women who have had surgical menopause have an increased risk of early heart disease and often experience menopausal symptoms, unless they are given medication.

Menopause doesn't have to be a complete headache! Inside the MENOPAUSE PRAYER AND CARE JOURNAL you will find lots of tips on how to manage menopause in a natural way, without Hormone Therapy Drugs and a kit to help you on your way!


Male Menopause?

Less interested in sex lately? Tired? Grumpier than usual? Is this a midlife crisis brewing? Or are you feeling the normal hormone changes associated with aging? Hormone changes are a natural part of aging for men. But male menopause is not an accurate description. Unlike the more dramatic hormone plunge that occurs in women during menopause, hormone changes in men occur gradually, over a period of many years, the effects of which are often subtle and not noticed until much later in life. Some men are never affected by lower hormone levels at all while some have physical and psychological symptoms that can include changes in sexual function, energy levels or mood.
