Menopause and Vedique Nutrition – A Holistic Approach to Well-Being

How to manage Menopause

Menopause brings about significant hormonal changes and is often accompanied by various physical and psychological symptoms. Vedique nutrition offers a holistic approach to managing these changes through diet, lifestyle, and herbal remedies. Incorporating Ayurvedic principles into one’s diet during menopause can provide relief from symptoms and promote overall well-being.

Menopause typically occurs in women between the ages of 45 and 55, with an average age of onset around 51. It is characterized by the cessation of menstruation due to a decline in estrogen and progesterone production by the ovaries. This hormonal shift leads to a variety of symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, insomnia, vaginal dryness, and joint pain.

Ayurveda views menopause as a natural transition in a woman’s life and emphasizes the importance of maintaining balance within the body to alleviate symptoms and support overall health. According to Ayurvedic principles, menopause is associated with the Vata Air) stage of life, characterized by dryness, coldness, and instability. Therefore, the focus is on incorporating foods and lifestyle practices that balance Vata dosha (mind-body constitution) to counteract these qualities.

This includes soups, stews, cooked vegetables, whole grains, and herbal infusions like Jasmine Infusion , Rhododendron infusions . These foods help pacify Vata dosha and provide nourishment to the body.
2. Include Healthy Fats in diet : Incorporating healthy fats such as ghee (clarified butter), coconut oil, and olive oil in moderation can help lubricate the joints, support hormonal balance, and nourish the tissues.
3. Incorporate herbs : Ayurvedic herbs like shatavari, ashwagandha, and gokshura are known for their hormone-balancing properties and can be beneficial during menopause.
4. Avoid Caffeine and Spicy Foods: Stimulants like caffeine and spicy foods can aggravate Vata dosha and exacerbate symptoms such as hot flashes and insomnia. It’s best to minimize or avoid these foods during menopause.
5. Stay Hydrated: Water acts as a natural detoxifier . Drinking warm water throughout the day helps maintain hydration, supports digestion, and flushes out toxins from the body.
