Menopause describes the permanent cessation of ovarian function, which results in the cessation of ova release, uterine lining creation, and subsequent uterine lining shedding. Menopause typically occurs in women during their late 40s or early 50s, and signals the end of the fertile phase of a woman's life. Menopause is a change that every woman will experience if she lives long enough. Menopause is not a disease but many women reach it physically exhausted and their bodies are unable to cope with the changes that should naturally occur, hence take hormonal replacement therapy (HRT).

Naturopathic Causes & Treatment of Adrenal Exhaustion 21st Century Syndrome

adrenal exhaustion

Adrenal exhaustion is the term used to describe the state when adrenal glands are exhausted and unable to produce adequate quantities of hormones, primarily the glucocorticoid cortisol, and adrenalin produced in the adrenal medulla. From a naturopathic perspective, all hormones are not made from thin air. Everything in the body requires nutritional precursors in the form of vitamins and minerals. Unlike doctors, naturopaths believe in insufficiency of nutritional precursors to these hormones due to poor diet, stress, chronic disease etc. This leads to the inability of the body to produce stress hormones resulting in adrenal exhaustion and symptoms thereof. Herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle approaches can treat this condition naturally, without the use of pharmacological drugs.
