Menopause doesn't have to signal an ending, but rather the beginning of a whole new phase of your womanhood. To ensure you have the best life possible post-menopause, follow these six health-increasing tips:
Proper Diet and Exercise
Fundamental to a healthy lifestyle at any stage of life is eating right and staying active. According to the USDA, the recommended diet for a woman over 50 contains 1,600-2,200 calories, depending on the activity level. The more active you are, the more calories you can get away with eating. Women also need to make sure to get enough vitamin D, calcium, and vitamins B6 and B12 after menopause.
As for activity, it doesn't have to be full-fledged exercise to help increase your health after menopause. You can take on a part-time job or volunteer in your community, learn a new skill, start a club, attend continuing-education classes at your local community college, or start a garden. Alternatively, there are plenty of exercises that can help keep you looking fit and feeling young, including aerobics, bicycling, yoga, and pilates.
3 Practice Prevention
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," the old saying goes. To practice preventative care after menopause, follow these tips:
Promote Genito-urinary Health
Avoid genital and urinary problems after menopause by keeping your liver strong. One way to do this is with Farlong Pharmaceutical's Liver Pure. Containing milk thistle, taurine, and a proprietary herbal blend, it supports the liver in boosting the metabolism and detoxifying, cleansing and vitalizing the body.
Reduce Cardiovascular Risk Factors
Keeping your heart strong after menopause is essential to reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and stroke. One way to support your overall cardiovascular health is to lose excess weight and maintain a healthy weight. In addition to a healthy diet and adequate exercise, another way to help lose weight naturally is with women's health supplements like Farlong Pharmaceutical's Inner Pure Weight Management.
Manage Hormonal Balance
Reduce and relieve hot flashes, improve sleep, and help with mood swings and anxiety levels by maintaining proper hormonal balance. One way to do this is with Farlong Pharmaceutical's Hormone Balance for Women containing not just one natural supplement for hormone balance but two: black cohosh and dong quai.
