Introduction: What is Menopause and What are the Symptoms?
As women get older, it is natural for them to enter menopause. This can have a negative impact on their everyday life. One of the most common side effects of menopause is the discomfort that comes with it. Sage can be used to relieve some of that discomfort.
Sage is a herb from the genus Salvia and it has been used by women for centuries to help with hot flashes and mood swings during menopause. It has been shown to be highly effective in alleviating these symptoms. In addition, sage also helps with memory loss, depression, anxiety and many other types of complaints associated with ageing in general.
At the ripe old age of 40, I’m pretty sure I’m starting to experience some of the symptoms of menopause or at the very least I’m experiencing perimenopause. I realise that I am on the younger side, but the hot flashes and the frequency of them really make me believe that I’m starting out on that journey.
I’ve spent some time recently researching how to bring this symptom in particular under control and became more and more intrigued by Sage and how it can be used to treat hot flashes and sweating which are particularly uncomfortable side effects of menopause.
What is Sage and How Do you Use It to Treat Symptoms of Menopause
Sage is a herbal supplement with the potential to relieve symptoms associated with menopause.
It can be used to treat hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and night sweats.
Menopause is the natural process in females who have passed their childbearing years when they stop having menstrual periods and they cannot get pregnant. Menopause can happen suddenly or gradually over a period of several years.
Common symptoms of this process are hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, difficulty sleeping or concentrating on simple tasks, anxiety and depression. There are also some physical changes that happen during this time frame such as thinning hair and wrinkles on the skin
Some women experience these symptoms for less than one year while others experience them for up to 10 years or more.
Hot flashes and sweating have been my main issue so far, they may not seem like a big deal, but I’ve found them really difficult to cope with. A few times I’ve just been sat quietly at night and all of a sudden I’ve found myself pouring in sweat. It’s quite embarrassing and it’s really knocked my confidence this summer.
How do I Take Sage?
When I first started to look into the benefits of sage during menopause, I was really surprised by all of the different options available to buy.
I’ve opted for taking sage in capsule form. I found various different options to order online and decided to try out the Nature’s Garden Sage Leaf Tablets from Holland & Barratt but there are plenty of different options to choose from. The tablets I’m trying out are to be taken with breakfast and with your evening meal and all of the research I’ve done suggests that it can take 4-8 weeks for them to take full effect. I’ve now been taking them for one week, and I’m honestly noticing a real difference already! My hot flashes have really calmed down and I’ve only had one episode of sudden sweating. I’m really impressed.
To use sage for managing menopausal symptoms in the traditional way, you need to put a few leaves in boiling water and let them steep for about 10 minutes before.
