Ayurveda/menopause without a gallbladder


Hello there, I am 50 years old and have had many symptoms of the Menopause for a few years.  My periods are now irregular and very heavy for the first few days.  I also suffer from swollen ankles, insomnia and now drastically thinning hair!  I believe i have a hormone imbalance and maybe not enough progesterone.  Can you advise me on some natural remedies??  I had my Gallbladder removed 3 years ago.  I have heard about Vitex, Raspberry tea and nettle tea.  Can you let me have your thoughts on these please.  I am not overweight, I am a fearful, sensitive, creative person, if that helps any!  Thank you for any response!

Dear Pat

Yes symptoms look very much like menopause. You are doing right. With all this add lavender aroma oil massage of your temples and feet before sleep. Use less refined food and less salts and sugars. Use soya products, vegetables and fruits more. You can use shatavari caps also as supplements. ashwagandha and tulsi is very good for your emotional problems. Take care do more exercise, meditation and keep your self happy and busy.

Health and Peace
