(1) Our Fort Wayne women may find these amusing yet thought-provoking! Delayed menopause Increased risk of endometrial cancer High intake of total calories, fruits, proteins Moderate alcohol consumption Early menopause Increased risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis High intake of polyunsaturated fats(current) Smoking Vigorous exercise So what comes with menopause when it starts? Ask any Fort Wayne menopausal woman, and you’ll get an earful! Hot flashes, disrupted sleep and breathing, insomnia, and, for some, chronic pain. (2) No fun, eh Fort Wayne ladies? Can menopause be avoided all together? No. It will come to all women at some point. So what do women do when they have menopausal symptoms and effects? 53.8% visit a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioner and/or use a CAM product. Another 34% use a CAM product only. 5% talk with a CAM practitioner only. Menopausal women rated massage (94%), chiropractic (90%), and nutrition as the most effective strategies. 71% of CAM menopausal women told their medical doctors about CAM use. More menopausal women (62.5%) used CAM products than prescription or over-the-counter meds (59.9%).
