[LiSaC] I’d like some suggestions on what some options are that women have to be healthy during and after menopause.
[M_Entity] If Menopause were treated as a passing life transition, it would be much easier to process. Menopause, and Menopause-Andropause in men, is a hormonal wash removing the base desire for procreation. It is practical biologically, but is also a profound opportunity for shifts psychologically or spiritually, as well. During this phase, which is usually linked to the 5th Internal Monad, biological relief can be found in what has come to be referred to as “wild yam” products. Estrogen replacements are risky, but worth it for some. Other than these basic remedies, only time can remedy the process.
[M_Entity] With the emphasis being on the 5th Internal Monad, the process will include a very profound look at what the life has accomplished by your own terms, and what you can now do to experience freedom within the frameworks and patterns that have been set. Although Menopause and Andropause are not limited to those experiencing the 5th Internal Monad, it is consistent enough to be considered.
We do not have a quick remedy or suggestion for alleviating the stress of the process, but we do believe the more difficulties involved for an individual tend to be directly proportional to their personal belief that they have not “proven themselves” yet. We believe addressing the wonders of the life that have been experienced, rather than the want for something undefined, vague, and somehow more meaningful, the process can be freeing, rather than debilitating.
Menopause/Andropause allows the psyche the opportunity to truly assess the life-to-date, and though much of it may be disappointing to the Personality, choosing to view the life from the eyes of your Essence can alleviate the strongest of discomforting symptoms. Your contributions to a life are far more amazing than may be possible to see from your position, but Essence knows. It can do wonders to ask family and friends for feedback and stories to convey any influences and meaning a person may have left in a life.
