Why you don't want an early menopause - and how to prevent one.
An early menopause is a warning sign.
An early menopause says - replenish your energy reserves - or you could be at risk for other signs of aging and even a shorter lifespan.
It could mean you're feeling old before your time.
What's happening in your body during an early menopause?
The average age for menopause is 45 - 55. Menopause that happens before 40 is considered early menopause.
And while not having to deal with your period anymore might be tempting...
Early menopause means your estrogen levels drop at a younger age ==> And that's associated with health risks. It could mean increased risk of:
- Bone fracture
- Heart disease
(No thank you!)
AND From an Oriental Medicine perspective.. Early menopause is a sign of early aging. It means your energy reserves - your battery pack - your life potential - are running low sooner than they need to be. It means you'll look and feel older at a younger age than is necessary.
Many docs recommend taking hormones - including estrogen - for 5 - 10 years after menopause. They feel the significant health benefits of keeping your hormone levels HIGHER outweighs the risks.
Well, keeping your hormone and estrogen levels high naturally - by having a later menopause - gets you all those benefits with none of the risks.
It also means your body is more likely to continue to make small amounts of those precious hormones & hormone-like substances after menopause to keep you looking and feeling younger for years to come.

Get Started With These Three Steps
Breathe Deeply for 5 Minutes
You make energy from the air when you breathe, but only if you're breathing deeply. You want to breathe really deeply and well as often as possible, so you're making as much energy as possible from the air.
These strategies help refill your energy reserves, your energy bucket, every day.
Eat foods that nourish Jing (hormones) like eggs and seeds - and chew really well. (Bonus if you can find black sesame seeds and quail eggs:)
The most powerful natural way to support hormones that are dropping early... Is with herbal remedies. In my practice it was the only thing that compared to HRT.
What if you're already in (or past) early menopause?
#1: I've used herbal remedies with a number of women in early menopause who restarted their period for a few more years then went into menopause again later.
#2: In the post menopausal years - bringing your hormone levels up from near zero to just a bit higher can get rid of a list of signs of aging and diseases as long as my ARM. If you start post-menopause early this is even more importnant
