Menopause is the “golden age” in a woman’s life-cycle
Ayurveda identifies menopause as a golden age in the life cycle. Since aging is a Vata-dominant stage of life, the symptoms of menopause are strikingly similar to the symptoms of imbalance for the Vata Dosha.
Dosha Imbalances & Female Health:
Vata: Nervousness, irritability, mild mood swings, sleeplessness, occasional constipation, and bloating.
Pitta: Irritability, feeling hot, hot flashes
Kapha: Weight gain, sluggishness, lack of motivation, slow digestion and water retention.
