Menopause Support

We are excitedly packing lots of our 'Woman Kind' menopause spray to take to a special event tomorrow being held at 'The Farm'.

The Farm is an artisan shopping hall with restaurant based in Snitterfield just outside Stratford upon Avon, tomorrow it is hosting a menopause event with Dr Boden, Menopause specialist. Dr Boden will be talking about what we can all do to help ourselves during peri-menopause and beyond.

The Ives founder Trudy Armel will be there to talk about our natural product Women Kind demonstrate how it can work. Our completely natural, hand blended  approach to soothing sleep, restless legs and anxiety which can often be symptoms of menopause is designed for use for ladies experiencing peri-menopause symptoms.

Now lack of magnesium can cause a huge list of symptoms. And in the menopause, these can sometimes actually be mistaken for hormonal problems and it is in fact just a lack of magnesium. So low levels of magnesium can interfere with your sleep. It can give you a poor sleep pattern. It can cause low mood. It can even go as far as causing depression. It can cause muscle and joint aches and pains. It can cause fatigue. It can cause those horrible food cravings. It can also cause that kind of brain fog that we sometimes get. It can give us night cramps and restless legs. It can cause nausea. It can also cause low thyroid issues. It can cause high blood pressure. It can affect your hair and nails. It can make your hair really weak and it can cause split nails. And it can also trigger migraines and headaches.

The best way to get magnesium is to try to get it through your diet. The only problem is today, the levels of magnesium in our daily food has actually dropped quite considerably. So you need to make sure that you have a really good, healthy, varied diet. So you’re looking at foods such as nuts and seeds, things like sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds. Dried fruits are absolutely great, only don’t take too many because they are high in sugar. Avocadoes, dark green leafy veg such as spinach and kale. You’ve got mung beans, you’ve got brown rice, lentils. You’ve also got cocoa beans. Now, this doesn’t mean that you go and stuff yourself full of chocolate. But a little piece of dark chocolate, maybe over 70 to 75% cocoa can actually be really good for you, as long as you take it in moderation. Maybe one or two pieces a day. You could also try the cacao powder and use that instead of cocoa powder in any of your recipes or baking. You can also get plenty of magnesium in your whole grains. So things like brown bread, whole meal bread, and brown spaghetti as well can be really good for this sort of thing.

You can add to this varied diet by using our magnesium oil spray to support your levels and give a boost to your body right when it's needed at bedtime. 🧡
