"Does Menopause last long?" is often a question women ask their doctors. Women who are looking for menopause relief are always waiting for the end to come near. For many women, menopausal symptoms cause pain and are very uncomfortable, so they are looking for the end from the moment perimenopause begins. How Long Does Normal Menopause Last?For most women, they can expect all the stages of menopause to last between four and five years. From the first early symptom or sign to the last, hot flashes can actually range from one year to eight years. This is not much relief for women who have been suffering for several years already.Premenopausal woman may already be experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause and wondering when it will all be over. Unfortunately, there is no specific time frame for menopause. Some people believe that women who have had heavy periods will have longer menopauses than people who have had lighter periods. Others believe that the earlier menopause or perimenopause sets in, the longer it is going to last.The Average Length of TimeThere is no strong evidence to support any predictors for the length of menopause. Every woman is different and every woman will experience menopause at a different pace. On average, a woman who is suffering from premenopausal issues will have four years before their period has disappeared. It may take longer for all hot flashes to disappear. Relief for SymptomsThere are a variety of techniques available to help relieve the symptoms associated with menopause. Some of the most popular ways to relieve menopausal symptoms are:* Medications like estrogen* Herbal supplements like Black Cohosh and Chaste Tree Berry* Reducing life stressors* Exercise* Eating rightFamily and loved ones being supportive can also be a great relief for women suffering through menopause. Women who are surrounded by understanding people are going to have a much calmer menopause experience than a woman who is constantly struggling to get her symptoms heard and understood.What can be done?There is no predetermined amount of time that menopause will last. Some women may experience menopause symptoms for only a couple years while others may suffer for over five years. There is also no way to determine how uncomfortable the menopause process is going to be for a woman. Some women will not notice very many changes in their body as they breeze through menopause, while other women may feel like they are in agony for much of the process. Relief of "menopause symptom" s can come from medication, herbal remedies, and emotional support. Although the time frame is unknown, women who have a good support system around them are more likely to find the menopause experience bearable. For families who have a woman going through menopause, they can offer support by being understanding of the radical mood swings and bodily changes that the menopausal woman may be suffering from. Menopause is something that all women will go through at some point in their life. It is important to seek medical support as well as the support of family and friends during the long process of menopause.
Until recently, shaving, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis were the only methods of removing unwanted hair. In the early 1990's, the first reports of using laser energy to selectively damage and disable actively growing hair follicles were published, and since the mid 1990's, laser hair removal has become the "Gold Standard" for the management of unwanted hair. People started to crave for the newly discovered "laser "hair removal" " , but as they undertook the treatment they found out several side effects. Nonetheless, it should be noted that the side effects are only temporary.There are several laser hair removal systems available today, but they all work using the principal of selective photothermolysis, in which a carefully timed pulse of laser energy passes through the skin and is absorbed and converted to heat energy at the hair follicle. Because longer wavelength laser light penetrates deepest, the most common lasers used are the Ruby, Alexandrite, Diode, and Nd:YAG lasers, all red or infrared lasers. The bottom line, all of these may be the cause for some side effects that a patient may experience.The possibility exists that some side effects of laser hair removal can be one of the following: Redness- this could be an initial side effect on the part of the client after undergoing the laser hair removal which is usually caused by the heat that transpires on the skin to the hair follicles. Swelling- this complements the redness of the patients skin after treatment. Itching- it is commonly experienced by the patients during treatment sessions. Pain, tingling, or feeling of numbness (cold spray) - this is why the surgeons advised the patients not to apply any cream prior to the treatment that may cause their numbness. Crusting/scab formation (on ingrown hairs). Bruising- this is noted to be one of the rarest cases being brought up by the patients after the laser hair removal treatment. Purpura (Purple Coloring of the skin) on tanned areas- the laser hair removal is not that advisable for individual who have tanned skin because this is the most crucial problem that they could encounter after treatment. Temporary pigment change- it could be classified as either hypo-pigmentation or hyper-pigmentation on the clients skin.Although there are some risks in "laser hair removal treatment" , there are still other clients who have tested the treatment that have described it as simply as having a feeling of being snapped by a rubber band. Most patients tolerate the procedure well, but some areas of the body are more sensitive than others which is why they experience these side effects. This is very normal even with other forms of skin treatments.Immediate side effects if any are frequently minor and short lived. Most people return to their normal activities right away. People should not be upset if there are some side effects brought by the laser hair removal because the lasers that are used at out-clinic are non-invasive and are designed to be gentle enough to treat an individuals sensitive skin and effective enough to remove even a mans beard or back hair. Each has an active cooling system to gently treat hair while protecting the appearance of the surrounding skin. Even though there are a few side effects with [*_*] we must bear in mind that these are unavoidable, and for most people the outcome still outweighs this annoyance.
The sun releases many kinds of radiation, each with a wavelength band that is specified. As soon as UVR reach the skin, it is readily absorbed by the skin molecules that intermingle more intensely with a specific wavelength. This act may result in damaging the skin proteins, lipids and cellular DNA, eventually leading to skin cancer. Ultraviolet radiation is broken into three types of wavelengths:- UV-A: The longest wavelength is not absorbed by the ozone. It deeply penetrates the skin.- UV-B: It is blocked partially by the ozone layer and is accountable for sunburns.- UV-C: This is entirely absorbed by the atmosphere; it can only be encountered from artificial radiation sources. 1. SunscreenSunscreens can absorb or redirect these harmful rays before they can interact with the skin. A sunscreen product will typically contain a combination of chemical and moisturizing ingredients. Certain ingredients are much better in blocking UVB while others block UVA. Chemical sunscreen ingredients PABA esters, cinnamates, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), benzophenes, salicylates, octocrylene and dibenzoyl-methane. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are physical blockers and board spectrum which block both UVB and UVA.2. What is SPF?Stands for Sun Protection Factor. The number is determined and established by the degree of light that stimulate and encourages redness in skins that are sunscreen-protected, divided by the degree of light that encourages redness in skins that are not protected is the SPF. It is simply a measure of protection from UVB which ranges from 1 to 45 or above. A sunscreen product having an SPF of 15 will filters 92 percent of the UVB. Or, a sunscreen product having an SPF of 15 will defer the beginning of a sunburn in an individual who would burn in 10 minutes to burn in 150 minutes. The SPF 15 sunscreen can allow an individual to remain in the sun 15 times longer. 3. Sunscreen Application And Selection: - Before buying a sunscreen product, read the label and be sure that it will filter and absorb both UVA and UVB.- Check also the products level of protection. SPF 15, or 30, depending on how long you usually stay out in the sun.- Keep in mind that inexpensive brands are just as effective as the expensive brands.- Check the expiration date. An expired product will lose its potency thereby will not perform its role. This could lead to serious sun burn.- Choose a product too, that is labeled board spectrum, to give your skin complete protection from UVB, UVA and UVC.- Remember that lighter skin will burn more quickly than darker skin. Therefore light skinned individuals needs higher SPF.- The product should comply and abide with the standard AS/NZS2604 to support their claims and declaration for SPF, water resistance and board spectrum. This should be in their label.- Check the products formulation. It must be non allergenic so it is safe to use on sensitive skin and on the face as well as nonacnegenic so as not to clog the pores.- Insist on a product that is PABA free, containing no irritating chemicals and is safe to use on the face.- A water proof sunscreen is best.- Read the label and make sure that aside from sun protection, it also contains essential skin moisturizers to nourish your skin at the same time.- Before applying a sunscreen, the skin should be clean and dry so that it can be well absorbed.- Apply a liberal amount of sunscreen all over the body and pay special attention to the face, nose, ears, cheeks, and scalp as these are areas that are prone to sun burn.- Reapply often, when perspiring heavily or after swimming. It is best to apply it fifteen minutes before you go out in the sun.- Even on cloudy days, there is still a need for sunscreen application.- Even with a sunscreen, avoid the sun during the hottest hours of the day starting at ten in the morning until four in the afternoon.- Reflectors like zinc cream that reflects UV rays off the skin, should only be applied on small areas of the skin as they tend to limit perspiration.
During menopause, many women report that the challenge of weight loss becomes even more difficult. The need to lose weight haunts women most of the time, and now more men are reporting the same struggle. When women hit menopause, weight gathers around the waist and hips; despite our best efforts to diet and exercise. What we know is that this additional body fat is linked to your hormones. Most women follow a conventional low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet with lots of processed foods. Eventually this diet creates a condition known as insulin resistance; see Dr. Schwarzbein's book on the book list. When you are insulin resistant, your body converts calories into fat even when you are dieting. Menopause feels like a losing battle, but it doesn't have to be. When you are stressed, as the body typically is during menopause, stress hormones block "weight loss" . Despite adequate food, the body acts as if it's in a famine and stores all spare calories as fat.This leads to a metabolic disorder called adrenal fatigue. Many women combine a high-stress life with a low-fat, high-carb diet which creates a powerful hormonal imbalance which causes us to gain weight. Yo-yo dieting exacerbates the problem. Also, when a woman is on a high-carb diet she is often barraged with a craving for sweets. The body can't maintain optimal blood sugar and serotonin levels, so you snack and drink caffeine to feel better. That makes your insulin resistance worse and the vicious cycle of gaining weight is accelerated. During perimenopause, women lose estrogen which is an added factor to this problem. As estrogen decreases, the body needs extra fat resources. Other factors that play into this problem, are unresolved emotional issues, food sensitivities, digestive issues such as yeast, and even heavy metal toxicity. So what do we do? The most important step is to GET HEALTHY! Follow an eating plan like the one in the Schwarzbein Principle or the Zone Diet You need protein at every meal, low carbs, very little to no processed food, and lots of fruit and vegetables Drink plenty of water Take nutritional supplements Try Supplements Designed for Menopause Stop weighing yourself, use your clothes as a gauge (focus on your health not your weight) Start exercising - walk 4-5 times a week for 30 minute (it boosts metabolism) Get help for emotional eating - you have to face your fears to get through them Reduce the stress in your life, make time for fun and relaxation - strive for BALANCE Learn to love yourself during menopause and accept who you are and at what stage in life you find yourself Menopause can make weight loss even more challenging for both women and men. But with the right knowledge and some hard work, it can be done.
