An Active Approach to Managing Menopause

Get Moving to Relieve Discomfort


  • Thank you for the information! Very helpful! - 5/11/2016 12:11:36 PM
  • This is really helpful. I'm 37 and experiencing a lot of hormonal issues that I feel are menopause related. My GYN says I'm "too young" (though I know that's not true) and hasn't tested me for menopause yet. Regardless, I have an estrogen deficiency so this article was beneficial because I didn't know my body could produce more estrogen this way! Thanks for the added motivation! - 5/11/2016 9:56:12 AM
  • While I was going through menopause I lost weight through eating healthier and increasing my exercise from a couple times a week to 5 days per week. I think this really helped, so I agree with this article wholeheartedly. My sister who doesn't exercise much (just an occasional walk around the mall) and is a little overweight struggled through menopause with severe hot flashes. I had a couple of mild ones, but overall, I didn't have much trouble. I think the exercise had so much to do with it. I do agree with another poster who said that an added benefit to working out through peri menopause and menopause is to help with balance. My MIL is 85 and never exercised regularly, she is constantly losing her balance and falling. My balance has never been good to begin with so hopefully all this exercise will help me out when I'm 85. Good article! - 1/21/2016 2:09:52 PM

  • Thank you for this article. It is very informative. - 10/11/2014 4:12:37 PM
  • I so appreciate this article! It was very encouraging to me as I am peri-menopausal. Come to think of hot flashes are not on the HOT side but more warm. Wow! Will continue to exercise. Thank you for this info! - 1/1/2014 7:14:09 PM
  • already through menopause, but this was interesting

    I think you left out a fourth component especially important to one who is aging - balancing exercises. Broken bones are often the result of losing one's balance. Overall an informative article. Thanks. - 5/31/2013 12:50:23 PM
    My lovely friend the writer Louise Miller recently chronicled her experience of the onset of menopause. It was so funny and life affirming that I had to share it with others!

  • I have found that losing weight is the hardest thing to do when you are in menopause. I have to eat around a 1000 calories instead of 1200 that is recommended for weight loss. The most important thing is exercise though. Walking takes it off... - 9/23/2012 9:28:54 PM
  • I have been having nausea for quite awhile & now I see that it could be caused by menopause! I am also having terrible hot flashes & night sweats. Also I cry at the drop of a hat! Good article - 9/2/2012 11:48:44 AM
  • Good article, thanks.
    but as said before "one size does not fit all" so to speak.
    I was lucky enough to have fewer hot flashes and night sweats than most it seems
    and no HRT for me,even the ob/gyn Dr. i have does not recomend it for his patients
    as he said "if you insist i will give it" I did not insist, I do not like meds. - 8/14/2012 9:46:45 AM

    I have been dealing with Menopause for 4 years, in the last year I have gained 20 lbs around the mid-section; and the hot flashed are crazy; as well as night sweats.And I think I am losing my hair.

    I see an TCM doctor once a week for acupuncture and cupping, which has helped but no weight loss or reduction of hot flashes. I am going to my OB/GYN tomorrow to try some form of HRT - 6/12/2012 1:01:50 PM
  • Perhaps thismight not be a cure all, but it is a definite help against bone loss and weight gain. Miracle no, but non age related good sense and healthy.
    By the way, several years ago, it was noted that I had osteopena but this year with excercise was told that my bone structure is good. Yay for excercise!
    Again, good solid advice, whether or not it completely alleviates the menopause symptoms.
