Can CBD relieve symptoms of menopause?
The answer to this question is a great big YES.
CBD will reduce inflammation. Cannabidiol has powerful anti-inflammatory properties
Did you know that during menopause, our body can be in a constant fight or flight mode? Yes, and we may not even be aware of it.
The constant inflammation caused by the hormonal changes that we experience, are the cause of the various symptoms we may get. One example of fight or flight mode, is sleepless nights….. You may go to bed very tired, but because your body’s cortisol levels are not balanced.
Do remember to always add your Vitamin B’s and D3, but think of the following for CBD.
It’s not unusual for women to experience anxiety during menopause. Estrogen and progesterone influence the activity of cortisol and serotonin in the brain — which directly affect mood. As levels of these hormones become erratic and eventually plummet, your neurochemistry will change. If you supplement your treatment with CBD oil, it turns out that CBD has very calming effects without you waking up the next day, still feeling like you are in a fog.
Hot flashes and night sweats are frequently joked about, but the science explains that our body’s cooling system is affected, thereby causing the hot flashes and also night sweat, which interrupt our sleeping routine.
Have you experience the 2 AM to 5 AM wake up routine? No laughing matter. It disrupts our sleep and daily routines, which can reduce the quality of our lives.
could be one reason why some women swear by CBD for this symptom. Remember to add on relaxation and Yoga classes to help.
Weight Gain & Diabetes
Hormones, hormones and more hormones, they affect our body on so many levels. Did you know that without estrogen, our bodies burn fewer calories? Even as we sleep, it’s not surprise we burn less calories during exercise.
Even if you cut calories and maintain a stable weight throughout menopause, the ongoing hormonal shift tells your body to trade in lean muscle mass for abdominal fat. This makes our bodies have more insulin
Vaginal dryness and atrophy
This problem can start even before the onset of menopause. Have you ever felt that you can’t even wear a tampon without the feeling of irritation?
Our level of Estrogen starts to decrease in our early forties or sooner. It is responsible for maintaining blood flow to the pelvic region. It oxygenates the organs.
Estrogen decrease compromises these functions, and lead to an array of unpleasant conditions, such as inflammation, muscle stress, and oversensitivity in your intimate regions.
CBD can moisturize the vaginal canal while reducing inflammation, and calm the nerves within the vagina.
