Hot Flashes, Problems Sleeping, Mood Swings, and Memory Problems, If you’re experiencing any of these uncomfortable symptoms of Menopause, relief is on the way.
Menopause is the natural aging process that women experience while going through mid life, typically between the ages of 42-56. The symptoms are caused by changes in your hormone levels, particularly estrogen and progesterone.
A recent study from researches in India found that yoga can reduce hot flashes and night sweats among women going through menopause. Yoga also appears to sharpen your mental function.
Menopausal women in the study, aged 40-55 years old, practiced yoga consisting of simple stretching and strengthening along with breathing and meditation, five days a week, for eight weeks.
Fewer Hot Flashes, Better Concentration
After eight weeks, women in the yoga group showed a significant reduction in hot flashes, night sweats, and sleep disturbances, while those in the control group who did not practice yoga, did not.
The test also showed menopausal women practicing yoga had significantly greater improvement in the memory and intelligence tests. In a test of memory and intelligence consisting of 10 components, the yoga group improved on eight, while the control group improved on six.
