Some Eastern cultures don’t even have a word for "menopause", yet in Western cultures, women (and sometimes for their relatives) can find it a difficult experience. The threshold for the complaint seems to have increased as more women would appear to experience difficulty.

Much has been written about the potential benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy, but in practice only about half of the women who try it wish to continue. Breast engorgement or the return of menstruation may be more acceptable for some than for others, but even without side effects the benefit in some women is disappointing. Besides this, many women remain uneasy about taking hormones for prolonged periods of time, and one cannot yet entirely reassure them. Dietary adjustment has been found most useful.

Before you start, you may wish to consider our Detox Formula which will cleanse your body and aide your gut's ability to absorb the nutrients within the Menopause program. It will also help replenish the intestinal tract with healthy flora and enhance your overall health and wellbeing.

Additional Help & Support

Homeopathy has been found to be of value with menopause. A modified vegetarian diet is also beneficial. Meditation is also of value, as is massage. 

Additional Comment

It is important that attention is paid to the balance between acid-forming and alkali-forming foods. The optimum balance is around 60% alkali-forming to acid-forming. See Acid Forming and Alkali Forming guidelines. 

An active programme of reducing stress can reduce severe hot flushes. In addition, a three-day non-citrus cleansing extending to include vegetables and cereals after the third day can be beneficial.

Q: What is the difference between foodstate supplements and ordinary supplements?

Ans: In nature, nutrients are created with a number of food factors that effectively create a delivery system to take the nutrient to an appropriate receptor site. These food factors are mainly carbohydrates, lipo-proteins, glyco-proteins, amino acids, carbohydrates, enzymes and fats. Virtually all supplements are made simply from the isolated vitamin or mineral without any of these essential co-factors present, so our ability to absorb use and retain them is very limited

 

Q: Why is Foodstate better?

Ans: We create our nutrients as fully formed foods so they are much better absorbed used and retained than ordinary supplements, which are all created with the same manufactured synthetic chemicals. Nature has created us to recognise food nutrients, not synthetic chemicals

 

Q: Why are foodstate supplements in lower dosage?

Ans: It’s because they are much better absorbed used and retained than ordinary supplements. Our Calcium for example is 30mg whereas most inorganic forms are up to 1000mg. Human adults need 30mg per day of food calcium so that is what we provide, rather than 1000mg of inorganic calcium that is very difficult to absorb

 

Q: Can I take foodstate supplements if I am yeast intolerant?

Ans. Absolutely. We use nutritional yeast as a growing medium for several of our products because it is such an effective, nutritionally complete growing medium. There is no hint whatsoever of yeast in the finished product, it is completely removed during manufacture and is entirely safe even for people who are highly yeast intolerant
