Menopause happens and there's not too much to do about it. It has a bad reputation, but it's a natural transition! Like all transitions, it can be difficult and uncomfortable without a healthy diet and routine to balance the Doshas.
Focus on balancing Pitta Dosha when it comes to menopause. If you are already prone to Pitta problems like hot flashes or irritability/rage, follow a diet and lifestyle that reduces Pitta.
If you experience Vata-related issues of menopause such as memory loss or anxiety, you'll want to work at bringing Vata Dosha back into balance.
Apana Vata, which is in charge of elimination and menstruation is a key aspect to balance when preparing for menopause.

Ahh, Kapha. A Dosha that we all have, made up of earth and water. It gives us many of our best human qualities, such as our grounding, stability and warm emotions. When in excess however, it can have negative consequences on our overall health.
To reduce or pacify kapha, Ayurveda has given us dietary, lifestyle and herbal treatment strategies. To reduce Kapha, emphasize stimulation, exercise, lightening, warming and drying in your diet and lifestyle.
