The menopause can affect women of different ages – the average age to go through the menopause is 52, but some experience what’s called a ‘premature menopause’ in their 30s or 40s. A lot of women find that making changes to their lifestyle and diet help them to cope with the effects of the menopause. Simple things like exercising and de-stressing can make a massive difference.

The menopause is related to the levels of oestrogen in a woman’s body. During the menopause, a woman’s oestrogen levels decrease. And without this oestrogen, her ovaries will no longer release an egg each month – so she’ll no longer experience the joys of a monthly period. This can sometimes happen suddenly, with a woman’s periods stopping abruptly – but is more likely to happen gradually over a period of time.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is available on prescription, but many women find that it doesn’t work well for them, or simply do not want to go down the pharmaceutical route for coping with what is a natural part of the ageing . For those women Perfect Harmony is a great natural HRT alternative that helps provide relief from the major symptoms of menopause. Perfect Harmony works by combining 6 key natural ingredients, including Soy Isoflavones, Natural Vitamin E, and Feverfew.
