How to Pass Climacteric?

A person's climactic begins at around 50, and most people are molested by symptoms of climactic, especially women who may suffer from frequent micturition, insomnia, sore waist and aching back, anxiety, fatigue, dry and aging skin, atrophy and dryness of vagina that causes pain in sexual intercourse. But there are many people of middle age passed their climacteric without these symptoms or light ones, because these lucky people are healthy. Modern women play many roles in the society, they work hard for a long time both at home and at work, causing mental and physical burden that causes harm to adrenal gland. When adrenal gland is less functional, the person cannot face pressure, and this leads to less secretion of hormone, causing bad taste of mouth, frequent micturition, losing balance of secretion, and speeding-up aging.

If you are aging, but you do not lose interest in life, you cannot get weak physically although your age is increasing year by year. Psychological factors are very important to health. Bad feelings can lead to illness, so you should have optimistic attitude towards life as well as get rid of the world of desires, in this way you can keep health mentally and physically, delay aging, and you will look younger than you actually are.

What to Do with Menopause?

menopause may cause some serious physiological symptoms. Some women need additional hormone to deal with the symptoms. But research in recent years has found that taking hormone for a long time will increase the rate of suffering breast cancer, so many women dare not receive hormone therapy. In fact, patients can use one kind of hormone gotten from plants that has no side effect. I suggest that you eat more vegetables, fruits, beans, fish, and dairy products, plus multi-vitamin and fish oil.

Prevent Aging of Legs.

A saying goes that a person begins aging from his legs. It means that a person's legs degenerate earlier than his arms. Degeneration of legs makes people often feel weak. The importance of legs to a person's health is like that of a motor to a machine. If a motor stops, the machine cannot run. A person reaches middle age, his muscle of legs begins to decrease, bone become loose and soft, and less elastic and tenacious. At this stage you still think your health is OK and pay less attention to exercise,  your important organs will quickly degenerate, causing your aging. Legs are farther away from heart and arms, so it is more difficult for blood to flow back to heart because of gravity. When a person becomes old, his blood vessels are less elastic, causing problem in circulation of blood, so it is more difficult for legs to recover from fatigue than arms. Generally speaking, a person with strong muscle in legs has a stronger heart, so we can say one old man who walks steadily and fast must be a man of longevity.

Know-how of Anti-Aging

Since his birth, a person began to take a course of aging, including birth, aging, illness and death. This course of degenerating physical function is a natural rule that people cannot escape from.
