Have you noticed that as you reach menopause or even perimenopause, digestive problems start to play up? Acid reflux and constipation are common complaints in older women. Menopause can cause an onset of these things in women who haven’t previously suffered from them, but it can also make existing problems even worse. What can you do to relieve things such as Indigestion and why does menopause cause these issues?
The reason will surely come as no surprise, but it’s all down to your falling estrogen levels. As they drop lower and lower, more acid is produced in the stomach, causing gastric reflux and a whole host of other problems. Typically symptoms occur as a result of high acidity and this is often the assumption, but it can also happen from low acidity. It’s common to assume that high acidity is the problem, thus treating it with medication that aims to reduce it. The only problem here is that if it’s low acidity causing the problem, it will only make things worse.
Can LaBalance help with Menopause Related Digestive Problems?
During our research, we carried out a study to learn more about the effects of wearing the LaBalance device 24/7 during perimenopause and menopause. 71% of women reported a reduction in up to 24 different symptoms. Of these 24 symptoms, digestive problems are listed, including indigestion, cramping and nausea.
A natural alternative such as LaBalance should be considered to combat digestive problems along with the more commonly reported problems such as hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings. Don’t underestimate this powerful little device, it is so much more than it appears to be. Learn more about how LaBalance works.
Drink & Eating Well
When we say ‘drink and eat well’ we’re not actually referring to the choices of food and drink in this case. Although that’s massively important as well, drinking and eating in the correct way really helps. For example, drinking while you eat can cause further problems if you’re already suffering from low stomach acidity. It dilutes the already low stomach acid and makes digestion more of a challenge.
With eating, take more time when chewing and chew each mouthful of food twenty times. Yes really, twenty individual chews! When you first start doing this it will feel very strange. It takes a really long time to eat a meal in this way, however, it prevents indigestion and it stops you from overeating. You will also find that you feel fuller much quicker. Great news if you’re trying to lose a few pounds and improve portion control.
It can feel as though there’s an endless list of symptoms to cope with during menopause, but we’re here to offer a lifeline. Don’t forget to learn more about LaBalance and try for yourself. Available direct from our website, via Amazon or in Boots stores.
