Every woman, regardless of what age or stage they are in should celebrate womanhood and be proud of being a woman. Be that as it may, alongside the proud feeling, every woman should also be empowered in all aspects of her life- most especially when it comes to their health and well-being.
And, Peggy Weekes author of the up and coming “A Mix of Two Worlds: Nature’s Best from the East and the West for Optimum Health” talks about one of the life-changing but natural events that every woman will experience in an article published by SheSavvy.

In this article that focuses on women’s health, Peggy Weekes bravely opens up and give light about the topic of Menopause. A topic which many may consider as taboo, yet for Peggy, this phenomenon for women is a ‘must-talk’ about as this transitional period gives women a chance to concentrate more on themselves and make the necessary changes required to improve their health and well-being as they enter a new phase of their life.
Peggy likewise shared some of the signs and symptoms of Menopause such as:
- Change in period, this may be the first thing you notice
- Hot flashes – a sudden feeling of heat in the upper part or all over your body
- Night sweats – hot flashes that are severe enough to wake you from your sleep
- Vaginal health issues and loss of bladder control
- Sleep – not experiencing a good night’s sleep
- Sex – you could become less interested or more interested in sex
- Mood (mood swings, depression, and irritability)
- Loss or thinning of hair
- Water retention, unexplained weight gain especially in the hips, waist and stomach
- Low metabolism
- Chronic fatigue and morning sluggishness.
But most importantly, Peggy presented that although there are numerous pharmaceutical drugs available, there are also many natural alternatives that have been used by women for thousands of years. These natural alternatives are able to successfully treat the symptoms of menopause without harmful side effects and are excellent at ensuring that the change affecting the body does not affect women’s quality of life.
According to Weekes, “Menopause is a life-changing event that will affect all women, and a conversation on this topic would assist women in knowing what to expect, when to expect it and what can be done about it.”
