Understanding the Menopause
Updated: Jan 8
Coping with the Menopause and it's symptoms, without medication, yes, without medication
The Menopause is a fact of life for all women and it can be a rollercoaster of feelings, emotions and new experiences. It's also part of the cycle of life, part of our natural lives but sometimes the symptoms can feel anything but natural.
Some of the symptoms can be hard to manage and medication can seem like the right path and it's not always open as an option to all women, but medical research has been investigating alternative methods for managing the menopause and it's symptoms. Good news
Clinical hypnosis can effectively reduce hot flashes and associated symptoms among postmenopausal women, according to a new study conducted by researchers at Baylor University's Mind-Body Medicine Research Laboratory.
No medication, just simple hypnotherapy as a way to manage the symptoms
How does it work?
Hypnosis has been proven in clinical tests to help manage hot flashes and night sweats for some women, yes and all without the use of medication. The hypnosis process can help you to visualise images that can help to reduce hot flashes by imagining coolness and help women to feel calmer and less stressed by the menopausal symptoms. Plus, you can learn self hypnosis so you can use the techniques away from the treatment room and keep the trickier elements of the menopause under control.
Does it really work?
In tests, after 12 weeks women in the hypnosis group reported 74% fewer hot flashes on average, compared with 17% fewer among women who hadn't tried hypnosis.
Also, women who were treated with hypnosis were far less likely than women who hadn't tried hypnosis, to report that their hot flashes interfered with their daily lives and sleep, so all positives and great news for women who want to choose a medication free solution for the Menopause.
