Mind-Body Connection And Menopause

We are what we think ... so say the smartest people of all time. Oprah's "Secret" book has been promoted and has become very popular, talking about the power of our thinking and how we create our reality. This applies to every experience of our lives, be it financial, smart relationships or our health condition. Does this mean, how our body feels, how we feel, how heavy, thin, healthy, or how comfortable our body is, just a reflection of our mind? How does this apply to life changes?

The reason, I contemplate, is that in the early afternoon, I came across an interesting article from Discovery magazine, which stated that Japanese women have no symptoms of Western menopause, but that they have what is called frozen shoulder, which is a condition in which the movement of the shoulders is very limited, and where Nigerian women also experience. In the Western world, most of us have never heard of this incident for women as a symptom of menopause! It seems that depending on the culture, the symptoms change. In the culture of American women afraid of losing their emotional control, Near Eastern Jews are worried about losing their physical health; European women worry about their mental health, while Arab women fear losing their sexual attractiveness when they no longer have children.

Back in Japanese culture, they experienced 80% less symptoms than women from most other countries in the world. They do not suffer from the flash of heat, menopause ', does not exist in their vocabulary. Researchers have linked it to their diet, which is rich in vegetables and soy that contains many phytoestrogens, and helps with estrogen production. However, they abandon the fact that aging in this culture is not seen as something to be feared; to be an older woman entering menopause, reaching a position of honor, just like a Maya woman in the interior of Mexico. Maya women in rural Mexico seem to be in good health, as they do not complain about symptoms of menopause and do not suffer from osteoporosis and fractures, and in fact hope to pass on their duties to their daughter in law and in her honor as an elder. Endocrinologically, they are no different from women in the United States.

This makes the mind-body connection clearer and better. Many holistic-oriented health professionals, such as Christiane Northrup, MD, encourage women to do the same: to preserve our whole physical, physical, psychological and spiritual well-being in order to maintain our well-being and eliminate not just symptoms but to improve the quality of our lives.

It's time we stop focusing on just one aspect of ourselves, whether it's eating, exercising, or taking pills, or saying our confession, and embracing our whole unity, to lead a life that fully expresses who we really are. , and create the health and quality of life we ​​want to experience.
