A group of chemicals known as Pthalates have been found to increase the risk of cancer, diabetes, obesity. and now new research from Washington University, Missouri, indicates they may also cause early Menopause. Pthalates are found in plastics, cosmetics (including make-up and hairspray), household products and food packaging. Women exposed to higher levels have been found to have significant hormone fluctuations that cause the early onset of Menopause, an average of 2 1/2 years before other women.
Pthalates are believed to be one of the reasons so many women are experiencing prolonged Peri-Menoopaue symptoms, including hot flashes, moodiness, mental fogginess, sleeplessness, anxiety, depression, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, weight gain and other symptoms of Menopause. In some cases, these chemicals may be causing women to stop having periods as much as 15 years too soon.Details
This is the story of my patient who I will call Lorna. When she came to see me she was 56 years old and had been experiencing menopause symptoms for 8 years. She was having 8-10 hot flashes every night. The hot sweats began soon after falling asleep and continued all night. Needless to say that made it nearly impossible to get any sleep. Lorna had suffered from Insomnia for nearly two decades prior to getting hot flashes.
She was exhausted, irritable, depressed and had lost all her sex drive, not to mention that her hormonal decline had also caused her to have significant vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. She had gained 40 lbs over the past 8 years without changing her diet or usual routine. Although she was a High School teacher, who had been blessed with a sharp mind, since going into menopause she had noticed significant memory decline and what she called “fog in the head.” She had lost her focus, mental sharpness and felt irritable, depressed and exhausted all the time. She just didn’t feel like herself anymore.Details
