Cholesterol elevation is a common problem during menopause all hormones are made by the body from cholesterol it stand to reason that you will have a high level when these are not being utilised.
Increased levels of cholesterol are a major risk factor for heart disease. This is the decade to make sure that cholesterol is well managed, in order to help prevent serious disease. Total blood cholesterol levels above 5.5 mmol/L are an indication of an increased risk of developing coronary heart disease. Levels above 6.5 mmol/L are considered to indicate extremely high risk. Around 50% of both men and women over the age of 25 have blood cholesterol levels above 5.5 mmol/L. This is due to a number of factors including diet, lifestyle and genes.
Dietary measures are obviously important, with the reduction of animal products such as fatty meats and full-fat dairy foods, and the addition of fibre-rich foods. Additionally, the use of natural products for cholesterol management, or orthodox medical drugs, may be necessary.
Fortunately, most factors that increase the risk of suffering from heart disease, such as smoking, overweight, increased cholesterol and lack of physical exercise, can be reduced or managed
Cholesterol is a fat-related substance necessary for good health. It is a normal component of most body tissues, especially those of the brain, nervous system, liver and blood and is needed to form the sex and adrenal hormones, vitamin D and bile (a digestive secretion required for fat digestion). A high level of blood cholesterol, however, increases the likelihood of developing health problems such as heart disease.
Cholesterol levels are measured by a simple blood test. Your healthcare professional can organise this for you, along with other measurements of your cardiovascular health, such as blood pressure testing.
There are five types of cholesterol, but it is the high density and low density cholesterol (HDL and LDL) that we need to look at more closely.
HDL has the ability to clear built-up cholesterol from the arteries and help in its removal from the body – sometimes people refer to it as the “good” cholesterol.
LDL is linked to heart disease and is involved in the fatty build-up on artery walls – known as atherosclerosis, or “hardening of the arteries”. This form of cholesterol is sometimes referred to as “bad” cholesterol.
Atherosclerotic plaque on the inside lining of the arteries, impedes circulation and may lead to heart attack and stroke. Cholesterol may also collect in the gall bladder to form gallstones.
Cholesterol levels in the blood depend on both dietary factors and the amount of cholesterol manufactured by the body.
Approximately 75% of cholesterol is produced in the body and 25% is introduced via the diet.
As we age, cholesterol levels generally rise as the body increases production.

Anxiety is defined as “an unpleasant emotional state ranging from mild unease to intense fear”. Some anxiety is normal, higher levels of anxiety can be uncomfortable and lead to significant health problems. Anxious individuals usually have a constant feeling that something bad is going to happen. A chronic state of anxiety may lead to panic attacks.
Feeling of tightness or inability to take in enough air
Tension in the muscles of the back and neck
Dryness of the month
Constant need to urinate or defecate
Anxiety may arise from a range of factors including:
Nutrition: Avoiding alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, sugar and refined carbohydrates appears to play a key role in reducing anxiety.
Nutritional deficiency of the B group vitamins, and the minerals magnesium and calcium
Environmental: heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminium), pesticides and herbicides have an affinity to the nervous system
Social pressures: factors such as job pressures, family pressures and the stress of modern day living will all contribute to anxiety
Hypoglycaemia: the brain requires a constant supply of blood sugar. A drop in blood glucose levels results in the release of hormones which increase blood sugar levels. Depending on the individual’s symptoms, hypoglycaemia can include anxiety, irritability, fatigue and headaches.
Allergies: from both food and environmental factors have been linked to increased anxiety, depression and a general feeling of fatigue.
Hormonal factors: are known to influence mood. Anxiety is a common symptom of premenstrual syndrome. Anxiety, irritability and emotional instability due to PMS are strongly associated with excess oestrogen and decreased progesterone during the premenstrual phase. Post menopausal women often experience a reduced ability to handle stress and anxiety levels increase .One of the best hormonal helpers for this is natural progesterone cream .Progesterone cream is available in Australia on script from your Doctor.
Natural verses Synthetic H R T
Conventional hormone replacement as prescribed by most doctors relies on unnatural or synthetic versions of the hormones progesterone and estrogen that are foreign and may be dangerous to a woman’s body.
Premarin for example is conjugated from pregnant horse’s urine and biochemically mismatched to human females causing symptoms and side effects.
Natural HRT on the other hand is bio identical to those hormones produced naturally by the female body and helps restore healthy body function .Hormones are chemical messengers that tell the body how to work. Thus Natural HRT can also be used to treat a wide range of mild and acute diseases.
Natural HRT is available on script only in Australia.

Getting old – Aging Turn this around now !
In youth your body is approximately 80% muscle and 20 % fat . Every decade that balance changes and by 70 it is 50/ 50.
Less muscle, less strength and the more effort is required to complete the same tasks. Tired, well no wonder .
What causes most of these changes ? Hormones.
Hormones are chemical messenger that tell the body how to work.
In the past, as we got older we were programmed to stop making different hormones at different ages.
For instance , when you reach puberty a cascade of hormonal changes occur that instruct the body on its new developing role as a reproductive human. During mid life females go through menopause and males through andropause .
Winding down the body clock most of us enter old age as less capable of performing the everyday tasks of youth easily or sometimes not at all.
How to feel young again.
If you are not making enough hormones or your hormones are unbalanced , you will experience unpleasant symptoms that we blame on getting older.
Supplements of natural hormones can be given to take orally, rubbed on to the skin or by injection.
