Stiffness or Joint Pain and Menopause Symptoms

Inflammation the silent cause of Joint Pain and Stiffness

But what does inflammation have to do with menopause?

When we start having hormone fluctuations it put a stressful burden on our adrenal hormones. Cortisol is often elevated in the evening causing insomnia and spiking insulin, leading to fatigue in the morning. If prolonged, insulin can become resistant leading to weight gain. These are both
inflammatory agents.

Having food sensitivities, irritable bowel or chronic Dysbiosis can lead to systemic inflammation.

A deficiency in essential fatty acids can lead to imbalanced eicosanoids and systemic inflammation.

Poor estrogen metabolism and clearance can not only lead to cancer but inflammation through out our body.

Hopefully at this point drugs are not necessary. There are many natural steps you can take to get relief from joint pain and muscle stiffness, as well as many of the other symptoms associated with menopause.

Why suffer with pain when the answers are at your finger tips. Dr. Rispoli has been helping women in menopause naturally manage their pain, reducing the caused of inflammation and reduce pain with acupuncture and cupping therapy.

Of course your body needs to be in balance with proper nutrition and you need to be on an anti-inflammatory diet. Exercise is essential to move out the toxins. Yoga is important for stress relief, elongating the muscles (tight muscles cause pain), and for deep core strength, stability and balance.
