Soy For Hot Flashes
It was 1996 when Dr. Aaron Tabor decided to help his mom by redefining the “change of life”
At 48 I needed help but “at 50, I was a total wreck!” Suzanne explains. “Fifty is a ‘good number,’ unless it represents the number of hot flashes you’re having each night, the number of steps it takes you to be completely worn out or the dress size you fear may be yours. This is not much of an exaggeration for the condition I felt my life was in. After raising the kids I thought I would be kicking up my heels. Boy, I needed some real kind of relief! Revival literally gave me my life back and I felt better than I had felt in years.
Like most women her age, Suzanne Tabor experienced…
Menopause and Dizziness
Menopausal women may have a broad range of concerns associated with their transitions. We often hear about things like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and weight gain, but one of the potential reactions we do not often hear about is dizziness. The physical causes for increased dizziness during menopause aren’t clear, but researchers believe that it may be due to changes in the blood vessels or nervous system when estrogen levels drop. Some researchers are investigating the possibility that dizziness during menopause is brought on or exacerbated by hot flashes. Whatever the cause, the fact remains that dizziness is, in fact, one of the many ways that your body responds to the changes of menopause…
Osteoporosis and Menopause
Peri-menopausal and menopausal women often experience weakening of their bones. We call this thinning and weakening “osteoporosis.” Women who have menopausal osteoporosis are more likely to fracture bones than women who are non-menopausal or who are not experiencing osteoporosis as a part of their unique menopausal transition. Not all women who are going through menopause will react with osteoporosis, and not all women who have osteoporosis are going through menopause. Estrogen deficiency, regardless of the cause, has been directly linked to osteoporosis. Menopause just happens to be the time in women’s lives when they are most likely to experience estrogen deficiency. The bodies of middle-aged women begin to produce less estrogen; this is a non-negotiable part…

Menopause Isn't the End of the Road
Many western women have a deep and abiding fear of menopause. They have heard it called “the change of life,” and they wonder if “change” is just a nice way of saying “the end.” We see menopause portrayed in the media as a time of physical and emotional distress, filled with crying fits, unreasonable anger, inability to control what your body does and once it’s over, you’re just “old.” Interestingly, many other cultures do not view menopause this way at all and women all over the world grow up not only not fearing menopause, but in some cases looking forward to it. To these women, and to western women who share this mindset, menopause is a transition away from the responsibilities and discomforts you have known for most of your adult life and…
