Be pre­pared

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Ageing With Attitude -

Three-quar­ters of women feel un­pre­pared for the menopause, ac­cord­ing to re­search car­ried out by A Vo­gel, the nat­u­ral health rem­edy com­pany. The sur­vey polled 3,000 pre- and post­menopausal women. Just one in four knew what symp­toms to ex­pect, with a third con­sult­ing their mother to gain in­sight, and nearly half googling the topic. Women would do well to eat oe­stro­genic foods — those which nat­u­rally con­tain plant oe­stro­gens, ac­cord­ing to A.Vo­gel nu­tri­tional ther­a­pist, Ali­son Cullen. She ad­vises women to top up their hor­mone lev­els with oe­stro­genic foods: ground flax seeds; pump­kin, sun­flower and sesame seeds; nuts; ce­re­als; fer­mented soya prod­ucts (miso, natto, tem­peh); beans; liquorice; cab­bage, peas and green veg­eta­bles gen­er­ally.
