Manage menopause with Ayurveda

In the lifetime of a woman, she passes through the phases of menarche, menstrual phase and menopause. Each phase being a major milestone, causes lot of disturbances and changes in her life. It may be a hurdle less journey for some and a bumpy ride for the rest. A journey which has no clear starting point, no clarity about duration, or a smooth ending.

So, what is menopause?

Natural menopause is the complete cessation of menstruation without any surgical intervention. Generally, it ranges from late 40s to 50 years of age.

It starts with a Perimenopausal phase, Menopause and Post menopause.

Most of the times it manifests as hot flashes, irregular periods, sleep disturbances, anxiety, depression and mood swings. The unevenly changing levels of estrogenic causes these disturbances.

Perimenopause lasts until menopause, the point when the ovaries stop releasing eggs. Menopause is the cessation of menstrual cycle for more than 12 months.

The phase after this is post menopause. Due to estrogenic disturbances and other factors, many physical changes like increase in the abdominal girth and body weight, urinary incontinence, osteoporosis etc. sets in.

Menopause is not a disease but a natural transition. A medical advice is needed if there is cause for concern.


What does Ayurveda have to say about menopause?

Ayurveda describes menopause as “RajoNivrutti”. In Ayurveda, a person has a unique personality based on doshas which describes his/her body type. During this stage or RajoNivrutti avastha, based on the prakriti of the individual, Vata dosha is more predominant along with the involvement of other doshas.

Vata predominant menopausal symptoms manifest as anxiety, insomnia and sometimes depression. Women with pitta predominant symptoms often suffer from pangs of hot flashes and anger. Kapha predominant symptoms include weight gain, low mood, feelings of mental and physical heaviness.
