    Hi, I'm 45 blood tests show I'm in the menopause. I'm managing my symptoms with herbal supplements and doing ok, not had a period for 2 months but I keep getting awful migraine headaches and nausea at certain times in the month which I'm assuming is a drop in horemones. Is there any advice to relieve these as painkillers don't touch them and they last for 2-3 days. Thanks ☺️

      Hi Sarah Nausea is a common symptom in the menopause and can be caused by several factors. Fluctuating oestrogen levels can be a trigger (a bit like morning sickness in pregnancy!) but falling oestrogen levels can also affect the digestion, leading to a stressed liver, which in turn can cause nausea. You may find taking Milk Thistle Complex helpful, as this is traditionally used to support the liver, and you could add in a soya isoflavone supplement such as Menopause Support. This is used to help gently raise and balance oestrogen levels, thus reducing symptoms Nausea can be caused by other factors, however, such as low blood sugar or dehydration; so do make sure that you are eating a good diet, with healthy snacks between meals, and drink plenty of plain water as well as your other drinks. Headaches are often caused by low magnesium so you may find 200mg twice a day helpful. Dehydration and low blood sugars can cause this too so remember the water and to eat little and often! You may also find acupuncture helpful here so worth looking into as well.

      Hello Elizabeth, I would suggest that you let the doctor know about frequent migraines and painful tingling to rule out any serious health condition, first of all. Drink plenty of plain water throughout the day (to ensure you are hydrated) and try a Magnesium and Vit B Complex to help support the nervous system, in the meantime. Let me know what the doctor has advised.

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.
