Menopause also know as “change of life” for women is a natural biological event in which the menses stops when the function of the ovaries begins to cease.
‘Change of life’ comes from a Greek word the root word which means “a critical time.”

CASE AND POINT: When I went through menopause I started using natural progesterone. It was like a miracle, taking away all the symptoms. You can have a doctor test you and find out if you are low on estrogen or progesterone. I would suggest that you use a natural form of it since the ones with chemicals have side affects.
Don’t forget to exercise and keep a healthy diet which is beneficial.
Challenge your thinking and renew your mind.
Be a blessing to your spouse and family, by taking care of yourself physically.
The Holy Spirit is there to guide you!
