The average age for menopause is 52 years of age. Yet some women, due to hormone imbalances and family history, go through it much earlier. Early menopause is defined as a woman going through this before the age of 46. As hormone levels drop, early menopause begins and with it, a double risk of heart attacks and stroke.

Early Menopause and the Higher Risk of Heart Disease

The average age for menopause is 52 years of age. Yet some women, due to hormone imbalances and family history, go through it much earlier. Early menopause is defined as a woman going through this before the age of 46. As hormone levels drop, early menopause begins and with it, a double risk of heart attacks and stroke. [i] These are scary statistics, yet I believe that with good diet and lifestyle choices, this doesn’t have to be the case. First, all women should strive to see the sunrise every morning to set up their circadian rhythms in the brain and other organs. Eating as many raw low sugar fruits and vegetables daily is important, keeping in mind that leptin resistance needs to be addressed first before having too many carbohydrates in the diet. Next, is exercise. It’s so important to do some form of exercise at least three or four times a week. This can be walking, outside or on a treadmill, swimming, anything that gets you moving and keeps you limber. It’s so important to get moving so you don’t lose elasticity in your joints and keep your cardiovascular health high. Finally, it’s important to monitor your cholesterol and blood pressure levels on a regular basis. They are often the first indicators that something is wrong. Keeping your stress levels in check is critical: you can practice breathing, meditation, yoga, anything that releases built up stress. There are natural ways and herbs to help with the stress. Keeping your body’s immune system up and having lots of essential Omega-3’s, with the right balance of DHA and EPA and maintaining a healthy Vitamin D status. It’s all about making the right choices for your health, which is always in your hands. [i] Johns Hopkins study 2012
