How to Manage Weight Loss and Avoid Perimenopause Symptoms

As you notice changes that occur with hormone fluctuations, finding some extra pounds around your waistline may be the last thing you want to face.  As Dr. Lauren Streicher laments in her post on the Dr. Oz blog, weight gain is all too common for women around menopause.

Most of us know to exercise and eat well to maintain a healthy weight. But if you are experiencing trouble falling asleep at night or wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep, both common perimenopause symptoms, then workouts might be far from the top of your to do list.

However, making time to stay active and exercise is critical for your hormonal well-being. Exercise helps to regulate adrenal function.

Dr. Marina Rose has helped women in and around the city San Jose, CA to measure their cortisol levels and find natural approaches to weight loss and perimenopause.

Healthy adrenal glands will actually help your body to produce the sex hormones that the ovaries are producing less of in perimenopause. This might also lead to an overall decrease in perimenopause symptoms. There’s another way that the adrenals are linked to weight control through their role in the production of cortisol.

If you’re struggling with weight gain and other perimenopause symptoms, find out how Functional Nutrition can help.

One of the best ways to understand the underlying nutritional cause of your symptoms is to know which foods and nutrients you have trouble digesting and those you are deficient in.
