  • NOTHING works for menopause hot flashes~not exercise,not soy flour nor soy products ~NOTHING!
    So, this is another one of those articles where I say ~ Oh really??? Guess I'll have to TOUGH IT OUT like everybody does who does not want to take HRT that is PROVEN to cause cancer. If exercise DID work, it would be passed on my by word of mouth and I wouldn't have ever HAD hot flashes because I have regularly exercised or moved my body doing activity DAILY!!! I agree with another sparker ~this is BOGUS!!!!!
  • This is a well-written article and explains the need for exercise clearly and intelligently. A must-read for all of us of a certain age!
  • I do my stretches every other day most of the time.
  • I stretch and do flexibility exercises after my exercises have warmed up my muscles.

    Anyone know what is an ideal amount of flexibility training each week?
  • Thank you for the information! Very helpful!
  • 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!
  • 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!

    I so appreciate this article! It was very encouraging to me as I am peri-menopausal. Come to think of it........my hot flashes are not on the HOT side but more warm. Wow! Will continue to exercise. Thank you for this info!
  • 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.

    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!
