Menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive cycle. While it is a natural process, it can be quite an overwhelming and difficult period for any woman.

The very thought of hot flashes, weight gain, mood swings and sleepless nights is enough to throw anyone into a panic. What’s more, menopause also brings along with it several other health complications such as an increased risk of suffering from diabetes, osteoporosis and even weight gain.

While many women turn to hormonal replacement therapies to deal with their menopause symptoms, at times simply resorting to the right diet and making some simple changes in one’s daily lifestyle habits, can also be sufficient to help manage your menopause symptoms effectively.

Myth – I will suffer from osteoporosis once I hit menopause.

Truth – During menopause, estrogen levels in the body begin to decline. This, in turn, can increase your risk of suffering from osteoporosis. However, with the correct dietary and lifestyle measurements, you can reduce your risk of suffering from the disorder. Add more plant-based foods into your diet. Also, ensure you intake sufficient amounts of protein, probiotics, and calcium daily.
