    Hi there, I have been taking passiflora for a while now. Can I continue to do so alongside menopause support?

    My Menopause finished a few years ago, yet I still get the symptoms I had when I was going through it! - Bad mood swings, irritable, lack of confidence, dryness. etc etc.

      Hi Linda You are considered to be 'officially' through the menopause after not having had any periods two years, and after another year your symptoms should have started to tail off. If you are still experiencing menopause-like symptoms (such as mood swings, vaginal dryness etc) after a lot longer then they may be due to other factors such as low iron levels, low thyroid function, low vit B12 or low vitamin D levels. It may be a good idea to ask your doctor to test for these just to rule them out. If none of these affect you then the symptoms may be an indication that your nervous system has been overwhelmed at some point. If you had a stressful menopause or have had any stress over the last few years this can have a huge impact on your nervous system which doesn't resolve itself. Adrenal Stress causes many menopause-like symptoms the usual menopause remedies often don't help. If this is the case then it is important to do supportive work for the adrenals, such as taking magnesium and calming herbs such as Passiflora or Valerian. Acupuncture can often help with this so worth looking into as well. Also check your water intake, dehydration can also affect the nervous system adding to symptoms!
