Are There Steps I Can Take To Make The Menopause Easier?

It's perhaps taking it a bit far to say that with the right attitude the menopause can be made into a joyous part of your life. However, the same actions that make life better generally will make the menopause better too.


  1. Regular exercise such as walking for 20-30 minutes three or four times a week can improve your health and add years to your life. Exercise strengthens your bones, increases wellbeing and can help make sleeping easier.
  2. Eating the right food is also important. For healthy bones the body needs about 1500mg of calcium each day from dairy products such as milk products and cheese.

  3. Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables provides the necessary minerals and vitamins for good general health and also helps to protect against cancer and heart disease. 
  4. There is some evidence that soya isoflavones (or other foods rich in 'plant oestrogen') can reduce menopausal flushings.
  5. Smoking is never good for your health. Stopping smoking is the biggest single move anyone can make to improve their health, whatever their age.
