The first tier of treatment entails the lowest risk, but it demands the most self-control. Often, simple lifestyle adjustments can greatly improve fatigue as well as overall health.
Fatigue in the daytime is closely tied to a woman’s sleeping habits. Often during menopause, when women experience other common symptoms such as night sweats or sleeping disorders, the sleep cycle is interrupted, which can lead to fatigue. In such cases, the importance of a good night’s sleep cannot be emphasized enough. In addition to cutting out caffeine and alcohol, it can also be useful to use the bedroom only for sleeping.
Paying attention to diet is helpful as well. Eating more alkaline-forming foods such as figs, beets, leafy greens, almonds, dates, and parsley are beneficial in fighting fatigue, since these foods have been shown to balance blood pH levels and boost energy.
On the other hand, if a woman is experiencing fatigue due to anxiety or stress, practicing stress reduction techniques – such as yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises – will help to reduce fatigue.
Lifestyle changes are an outstanding way to relieve fatigue and improve health, but they can be hard to put into regular practice. In addition, though they may relieve the symptoms of fatigue, they do not address the common underlying cause, a hormonal imbalance. However, alternative treatments are a safe way of treating hormonal deficiencies, and they are highly effective. Keep reading to find out more about natural treatments for fatigue.
