Inflammation is a natural part of the healing process to protect your body from infection. But ongoing (chronic) inflammation in your body can be troublesome and may be associated with long-term medical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. It may even make menopause symptoms worse.
In the Winter 2021-22 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, Gaynor Bussell, freelance dietitian and nutritionist, discusses how your lifestyle may reduce or increase the levels of inflammation inside your body – from the foods you eat to the amount of exercise you do.
“At the menopause, rising levels of inflammation may make hot flushes worse and trigger aches and pain,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “Eating a Mediterranean-style diet, losing some weight and cutting out certain foods may help to keep your levels of inflammation in check, helping you feel better and reducing your risk of certain health conditions.”
The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women, men and healthcare professionals. The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter contains articles written by top medical experts, such as gynaecologists, GPs, consultants, specialist menopause nurses, complementary practitioners, pharmacists, dietitians etc.
Other articles in the Winter 2021-22 issue of The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter include menopause myths, oestrogen and HRT, and ‘When was your last blood pressure check?’, as well as news, Ask the Experts Q&As and information about Norma Goldman’s webinars.
