Any Imagery for Menopausal Hot Flashes, Mood Swings, Sleeplessness??

06 Feb

Question:
 
What guided imagery would you recommend for menopause? I am being taken off HRT and would love some help with the hot flashes and mood swings. I am not sure if you have anything already available since I have just discovered guided imagery. Thanks,

Karyn

Answer:

Hi, Karyn,

Yes, we have imagery called Mastering Menopause and it is designed to help with hot flashes, mood stabilization and sleep, as well as reinforce self-esteem and reframe dumb ideas, so prevalent in the culture, about beauty and aging. :-).   There’s been some solid research to show that relaxation and mindfulness meditation can reduce the intensity and frequency of hot flashes.
 
We also have something that targets Healthful Sleep if you're having difficulties there - for a lot of women, that’s the peskiest symptom during this time.

Hope this is a help!

All best,
BR
