    Managing the menopause with diet and fitness.

    Menopause: a mile stone in a woman's life is nothing but the stage where the menstrual periods stop permanently. After menopause, a woman can no longer bear children. The targeted group is usually between 49 to 52 years of age. There is a marked decrease in the production of hormones by the ovaries. In case, uterus has been removed for any other reasons prior to menopause, the symptoms usually occur at an average age of 45 which is commonly associated with shivering, sweating, vaginal dryness, trouble in sleeping and mood swings. Woman experiences hot flashes which last for about 30 seconds.

    Symptoms of menopause:
    Fluctuation in hormone level, no ovulation
    Shorter menses (2-7 days)
    Poor memory, anxiety, irritability
    Joint soreness, dry and itchy skin, stiffness
    Dizziness, night sweats,
    Back pain, breast pain
    Weight gain and urinary urgency.

    These symptoms may vary from person to person. But there is a common issue that is faced by all women at their menopause stage is that joint problems. Their bone health is diminished by decreased calcium and other minerals in their serum. As the hormone oestrogen diminishes their activity, hence lead to less bone density.

    Calcium and menopause:
    Women at this stage are advised to take more calcium rich foods thus avoiding the deficiency of calcium and increasing the bone health. Due to this the women may face several joint pains, fractures and severe weakness in the bones.

    Diet to be followed:
    Always choose calcium rich foods like milk, yogurt, cheese, sardines, broccoli, nuts and seeds to compensate the high calcium requirement.

    Calcium in the food is well absorbed when there is the presence of phosphorous and vitamin d. So it is beneficial to take foods of phosphorous foods like peanuts, meat, cheese, garlic, onion and vitamin d foods like lentils, egg, fish and brown rice

    Eat fiber rich foods like fruits, vegetables, grains like oats, barley and bajra.
    Fruits are best partners during this stage since it possess a good amount of fiber and also rich in potassium which aid in fluid retention.
    Fruits like banana, mango, egg, milk, sesame and soy beans help in the production of serotonin that assists in sleep trouble and mood swings.
    Eat more fruits and vegetables along with green leafy vegetables than the amount of rice that help to prevent from weight gain.
    Keep yourself hydrated by having more water and fruit juices if you are non diabetic.
    Always have six meal patterns and choose complex carbohydrate foods since it possess a good amount of fiber.
    Avoid sugars, processed foods and junk foods, spicy foods and hot drinks.
    Limit the stimulants like coffees, tea, alcohol, salt and saturated fats which are the barriers to calcium absorption.
    Always be positive and have only positive people around you. Don't stress yourself. Stay connected with the people.
    Prefer practicing yoga for relieving the mental stress and to control your emotions.

    Pregnancy is a blessing for every woman. It is necessary that a pregnant lady is well nourished and well treated throughout her pregnancy. Our ancestors have many superstitious beliefs which the present generations just ignore. In a similar way, consuming papaya during the period of pregnancy is strictly restricted. This may be myth but has a fact behind that. Though papaya possesses many beneficial values, it has some negative effects during pregnancy.

    The fruit papaya possesses mainly two enzymes called papain and chymopapain. These enzymes can cause physical abnormalities in the unborn child inside the uterus and thus lead to abortion in the pregnant woman. The papain causes the uterine contractions so early like the activities of prostaglandins and oxytocins thus leading to miscarriage.

    This effect is mainly due to the latex substance present in the unripe papaya. However there is no clear evidence for the consumption of fully ripened papaya. The latex substance that causes miscarriage are said to be decreased as the fruit ripens. Consuming papaya after ripening may have a better nutritive benefits on the routine health. Papaya helps in increasing the bowel movements, improves heart health, treats heart burn, the vitamins present in the skin specially helps in treating irritable bowel syndrome.

    Though the fruit papaya is said to be food of angels, if you are in pregnancy period or expecting pregnancy, its better to avoid papaya due to the latex substance and since we are in a confused state to distinguish between a fully ripen papaya and an unripe one.
