Natural Treatments for Menopausal Fatigue
Fatigue can be a symptom of menopause by itself, but menopause and fatigue can go hand-in-hand too.
Menopause symptoms such as increased stress and anxiety levels, trouble sleeping and night sweats can make you feel more tired than usual, leaving you struggling through the days in a fog of fatigue.
Fatigue can feel all-consuming, causing you to be snappy and irritable with the people around you, affecting your concentration and memory, and dominating your thoughts when you’re finally trying to get to sleep, stopping you from nodding off.
But you can break this cycle of suffering from menopause symptoms and fatigue - you just need to find effective menopause fatigue remedies.
Why Menopause and Fatigue Can Go Hand-in-Hand
Menopause symptoms occur when the levels of oestrogen produced by your body begin to decline. This significant change to your hormonal balance can cause mood swings, hot flushes, loss of libido, concentration problems, vaginal dryness, a lack of energy and fatigue.
Menopausal fatigue can be made worse by the difficulty sleeping and night sweats that can also be symptoms of menopause, leaving you even more tired. As a result, menopausal fatigue can have a serious impact on your overall psychology, leaving you feeling a long way from your old self.
Going through menopause can be physically and mentally exhausting as it is, without fatigue being thrown into the mix as well.
How Long Does Menopause Fatigue Last?
Menopausal fatigue can last for as long as you don’t have a hold on managing your symptoms. You need to find a way to address your hormonal balance, and many women turn to natural menopause supplements to manage their symptoms.
For example, Femarelle® supplements contain DT56a, a soy derivative, which can mimic the effects of oestrogen in your body. This could help to relieve you from hot flushes and night sweats, minimise your mood swings and help you to get a better night’s sleep.
There are other steps you can try to sleep better too. For example:
- Keep your stress levels to a minimum by practicing yoga or meditation
- Try more vigorous physical exercise to tire yourself out more before you go to bed
- Get into a calming bedtime routine with limited screen time and a hot milky drink or a chamomile tea to help you to relax more
- Make sure your bedroom isn’t too hot and you’re wearing easily removable layers to bed so you’re less likely to be disturbed by night sweats
Taking menopause supplements can also help you to manage menopausal fatigue, as well as other symptoms you’re experiencing. Shop the Femarelle® range here.
