Menopause is a natural life transition that need not have negative side effects. During reproductive years, women are protected by female hormones, i.e. estrogen and progesterone. With menopause, women enter an estrogen deficient phase in their lives, which accelerates the ageing process resulting in greater vulnerability to psychosomatic problems.
Hot flushes, sweating, changes in mood and libido are some of the important outcomes affecting the quality of life during climacteric conditions in women.
According to Ayurveda, Menopause can be correlated with Rajoniverthi avastha. During this condition biological elements; Vata and Pitta get aggravated and cause symptoms like hot flushes, excessive sweating, sleep disturbance, irritability, dryness of the vagina, etc.
The menstrual cycle not only helps maintain the reproductive system but also acts as an important internal cleansing process for the entire physiology. When menstruation stops, the body loses a valuable cleansing mechanism.
