Hi Nancy, I am not a registered dietitian
(RD) however, am a professional social worker working with a client that is 51 years old and is struggling with symptoms of menopause, more specifically her struggle with interrupted sleep due to severe night-sweats. She reports to me that once she successfully falls asleep, she awakes every 70 minutes around the clock during the night and states that the quality of her life has Âœdiminished and has now become unbearableÂ. I do have understanding of just how important proper eating will lead to improved health
, and the benefits of daily exercise
, I have linked her to a caring RD willing to work with her on a sliding scale, & to advise on dietary
matters relating to health, well-being and menopause issues for 1 visit only, also, a local community
health club has extended her 3 months use of their facility, which should help her condition. Yet, today, she reports sleep deviation. She wants to know what more she can do? There are an expansive array of Reading Material out there on the topic of menopause for her to select from & she wants my advise on how to narrow the choices of books down and , yet, I truly do not know which one among the huge collection
to even suggest. I am feeling not as helpful as I ought to be here. I have explained that I am not an expert on such matters, & again reminded her to seek out her Primary Care Physician & discuss her concerns. Her physician, he suggested Hormone therapy and no other direction. She has acknowledge of HT being associated with an increased risk of heart attacks, blood clots and strokes and will never consider HT. She has already turned to alternative natural health products, for example, Black Cohosh, for 2 wks, reports no improvements. What more can I suggest?
