Perimenopause Symptoms | How to Stabilize Your Mood

Are you near tears one moment? Then find you’re laughing and carefree the next?

Mood swings are common perimenopause symptoms.

While perimenopause is a natural transition into the next phase of your life, it can be difficult to get through your daily activities when your moods are in constant flux.

According to Dr. Christiane Northrup emotional upheaval and irregular periods are some of the most common initial symptoms of perimenopause.

An underlying cause that many women miss is the role that stress plays. When you have prolonged emotional stress (like marital trouble), physical stress (like illness or injury) or dietary stress (too many convenience foods) your adrenal glands actually STEAL the building blocks your body would otherwise use to create estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

Adjusting your diet, supplements and lifestyle to support your adrenal glands can make a big difference in how you feel. Try these tips to help your body adjust to new hormone levels:

 

  • Get enough sleep
  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat nutrient dense foods high in minerals
  • Choose foods high in B vitamins like leafy greens, whole grains, and eggs
  • Take supplements to support adrenal function
