World Menopause Awareness Month
October is a month of change and transformation.
At VOYA Seaweed Baths, we are embracing this spirit of change to bring awareness and support to crucial aspects of women’s health.
Since 2009, the IMS (International Menopause Society) alongside the World Health Organization (WHO) designate October as World Menopause Awareness Month.
The purpose of World Menopause Awareness Month is to raise awareness of menopause and the support options available for improving health and wellbeing.
During Menopause, there is a plethora of hormones at play, including Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone, all of which have a significant role in bringing about physical and psychological change.
When reproductive hormones like Estrogen slow down, it’s not just menstruation and ovulation that are affected. Changes in these hormone levels can lead to alot of seemingly unrelated symptoms like sleep disturbances, headaches, joint aches, muscle aches, problems with memory or concentration and even dry mouth. This is because Estrogen, doesn’t just regulate the reproductive organs, but it affects and helps regulate many organs and systems in the body including the brain, the heart and vascular systems, bones, skin, hair and breast tissue to name a few.
These body changes can cause a decrease in vitamin and mineral intake throughout the body, such as decreased levels of the following vitamins and minerals;
Vitamin A – aids in maintaining healthy bones, skin and teeth
Vitamin B6 and B12 – helps to relieve mood swings, anxiety and depression
Vitamin E – aids in the absorption of other vitamins
Magnesium – helps produce Serotonin (the happy hormone)
Iodine – supports Thyroid health and regulates metabolism
All of these vitamins and minerals are found naturally in Seaweed!
