Me, my Feet Up Headstand Trainer and menopause
So, when my head is not in the clouds, I like to be upside down!
I have started using my FeetUp trainer again after being away from it for a couple of years. Maybe a sign that Helena's acupuncture is really helping me on my Menopause odyssey along with some other life style changes I've been trying.
Here's where I am at en ce moment - Alcohol intake is down, coffee at the weekends, no meat and less sugar. Getting outside and walking for at least 30 minutes, a daily breath practice (10 minutes), making time for rest when I can and using weights for some strength building. All sounds like a full time job but it is more of a habit to incorporate it into everyday. That and some herbs and vitamins. Oh and a small dose of estrogen 10mg - vaginal inserts.
Menopausal vaginal symptoms like dryness and irritation can be relieved with this. 'Vaginal atrophy' is the medical term for this. A decrease in estrogen levels in your body is thought to be the cause at this time. Every two weeks from the full moon to new moon cycle I use a progesterone cream using Wild Yam. I have written a little bit more about Wild Yam cream in another blog post HERE. My mum's friend produces it in New Mexico, USA.
Back to the Feet Up - fancy getting one to practice some headstands?
It gives me a great boost of confidence using it - being upside down and getting a different perspective on life.
