Over the last few weeks I have had a number of emails from women who have developed hayfever symptoms for the first time and are wondering if this could be another menopause symptom. Today I'm going to be talking about how these symptoms might be connected to your menopause, and what you can do to help.
If your digestion is poor then you may be nutritionally deficient, which will affect the immune system. We also know that friendly bacteria play a pivotal role in supporting the immune system and that if your digestion and elimination are not good this can directly affect the level of friendly bacteria in the gut
We know that poor sleep can weaken the immune system
Fatigue can grind you down making you more susceptible to infections.
So, although hayfever itself is not a menopause symptom, if all this is going on it is no surprise that some women will suddenly start itching and sneezing as the hayfever season swings into gear.
Is there anything you can do to prevent this from happening?
You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
