Relizen, A Natural Option for Hot Flash Relief

Many women are searching for a natural, non-hormonal treatment for their hot flashes associated with menopause.

The good news is that there is Relizen: A non-estrogenic supplement that is endorsed by gynecologists, and has clinically shown efficacy. This safe and natural option helps women ease into menopause comfortably and naturally.

Relizen is a patented nutritional supplement for the relief of hot flashes associated with menopause.* Already one of France’s top natural menopause products, and used by over one million women in Europe over the last 15 years,  Relizen is now available in the U.S. for the first time ever.

Women look to Relizen as a preferred natural and non-hormonal therapy, and trust its efficacy, which is backed by a number of studies published in leading medical journals.1 In a placebo-controlled trial published in Climacteric, Relizen produced a significant reduction in hot flashes without changing a woman’s hormone level compared to placebo.*

Sleep and Your Body: Are You Catching Enough Zs?

Sleep and Your Body: Are You Catching Enough Z’s?

sleep and your body infographicIf you’ve ever awakened from a power nap feeling refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the day, you know how good sleeping can make you feel. But have you ever wondered exactly why your body naturally gets tired and urges you to hit the hay?

Your body doesn’t simply “shut down” as soon as you fall asleep. In fact, it’s hard at work helping every mental and physical aspect of you function properly. No wonder the day after a bad night’s sleep seems so terrible—you didn’t get to properly recharge!

From memory, to mood, to heart health, to your immune system and metabolism, there’s pretty much nothing that sleep doesn’t benefit. Just think of how irritable you can be after getting fewer hours of sleep than you’re used to. Or how easy it is to get sick when you haven’t been getting enough shut-eye.

As if that weren’t enough reason to jump into bed a little earlier tonight, consider the fact that a lack of sleep can negatively affect your overall physical well-being. People who don’t sleep enough are more prone to developing issues like obesity, heart disease and infections—all of which can escalate into bigger problems.

While the amount of sleep necessary for proper functioning varies for each individual, most people should aim for seven to eight hours a night. To make sure that you’re getting this amount, avoid factors that can disrupt your snooze session, like drinking caffeinated or alcoholic beverages, vigorously exercising, arguing with a partner or using electronics during the couple of hours before bedtime. You may also want to avoid large or spicy meals and foods containing caffeine (think chocolate) near bedtime.

Instead, establish a soothing routine like taking a bath or doing some relaxation exercises, like meditation or gentle yoga.

Next time you’re feeling a bit under the weather, it could simply be because you didn’t get enough sleep the night before.

Happiness Exercise

meno-happinessSM35
Happiness and exercise may seem like an odd combination of words. Shouldn’t we just be happy or not be happy?

During menopause I discovered happiness was going to be an exercise. I had to practice being happy. Being consumed by hourly hot flashes, cranky moods, itchy skin and sleepless from night sweats, being happy was not on my to-do list. It was a full time job just managing these menopause symptoms. Additionally, I had to learn how to eat and exercise differently, and adjust my skin care regime. I was definitely NOT happy about these changes. As I developed the Menopause Makeover 8-step, 12-week plan I had to add “happiness” to the menopause checklist.

According to NationMaster.com, Americans ranked number 13 on the national scale of happiness, and Canada ranked number 17. Iceland, Sweden and Denmark ranked the top three happiest nations. Hmm, what does that say about women in the United States and Canada? Perhaps, we are too busy taking care of our home, family, finances and career. Maybe the new world of instant communication moves too fast? With emails, the inter-net, and cell phones is there any down time?

For the many, happiness is the ultimate goal.

How do you find happiness?

1. Slow down and think about it!
2. Ask yourself what makes me happy, and make a list.
3. Look at your list and ask yourself why are these things missing from my life?
4. Make a commitment to work on the things you can change that have blocked your happiness.
5. Every week take one “happiness item” from your list and set a goal to make it happen.

Before you know it, you the things that make you happy will be happening!

Enjoying the sunJust like exercise, you must incorporate it into your life daily! You must exercise your happiness muscle!

Finding happiness requires a commitment to change. It isn’t always easy incorporating change into your life, but with practice it will get easier – just like exercise.

Exercise happiness daily!
