How to Reduce Menopause Symptoms with Grounding

Menopause is a natural transition that every woman goes through, usually between the ages of 45 and 55. It marks the end of the reproductive years, and it involves changes in the levels of estrogen and other hormones in the body. While some women may experience menopause with little or no discomfort, others may suffer from a range of unpleasant symptoms, such as:

- Hot flushes

- Night sweats

- Insomnia

- Mood swings

- Anxiety

- Depression

- Weight gain

- Joint pain

- Headaches

- Vaginal dryness

- Low libido

- Memory loss

- Osteoporosis

These symptoms can affect the quality of life, health, and happiness of many women, and they can last for several years. If you are one of them, you may be wondering:

What Causes Menopause Symptoms?

Menopause symptoms are mainly caused by the decline in estrogen production by the ovaries. Estrogen is a hormone that has many functions in the body, such as:

- Regulating the menstrual cycle and fertility

- Maintaining the health of the bones, skin, hair, and blood vessels

- Influencing the mood, memory, and metabolism

- Protecting against inflammation and oxidative stress

When estrogen levels drop, the body tries to adjust to the new hormonal balance, but this can result in physical and emotional changes that manifest as menopause symptoms. The severity and duration of these symptoms vary from person to person, depending on factors such as genetics, lifestyle, diet, stress, and environmental exposure.

What are the Cures for Menopause Symptoms?

There is no one-size-fits-all cure for menopause symptoms, as each woman experiences menopause differently. However, there are some options that can help alleviate or manage the symptoms, such as:

- Hormone replacement therapy (HRT): This involves taking synthetic or bioidentical hormones to replace the ones that are lost during menopause. HRT can be effective for some women, but it also carries some risks and side effects, such as increased risk of breast cancer, blood clots, stroke, and heart disease.

- Herbal remedies: These include plants or supplements that have estrogen-like effects or can modulate the hormonal balance, such as black cohosh, red clover, soy, flaxseed, and St. John's wort. Herbal remedies can be helpful for some women, but they also have some limitations and interactions, such as lack of standardisation, quality control, and scientific evidence, and potential interference with other medications or conditions.

- Lifestyle changes: These include adopting healthy habits that can improve the overall well-being and reduce the impact of menopause symptoms, such as eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol and caffeine, managing stress, and getting enough sleep. Lifestyle changes can be beneficial for most women, but they also require commitment, motivation, and support, and they may not be enough to address all the symptoms.

While these options can be useful for some women, they may not be suitable or sufficient for others. That is why we want to introduce you to another option that can help you cope with menopause symptoms, and that is:

How Can Earthing Help With Menopause Symptoms?

Grounding or earthing is the practice of connecting your body to the earth's surface, either directly or through a conductive material, such as a metal rod, a wire, or a specially designed product. The idea is that by doing so, you allow the free flow of electrons from the earth to your body, and vice versa. These electrons have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pain-relieving effects, and can help balance your body's electrical charge and restore its natural rhythms.

Earthing has been practised by humans for thousands of years, as part of various cultures and traditions. Think of how good it feels to walk barefoot on the grass, sand, or soil, or to swim in the ocean, or to hug a tree. These are all forms of grounding or earthing, and they can make you feel more relaxed, energised, and alive.

However, in modern times, we have lost touch with the earth, literally and figuratively. We wear shoes with rubber or plastic soles, which insulate us from the earth's energy. We live and work in buildings that are isolated from the ground. We spend most of our time indoors, surrounded by artificial lights, screens, and electromagnetic fields. We are disconnected from nature, and from ourselves.

This disconnection can have negative consequences for our health, especially during menopause, when our hormones are fluctuating and our bodies are changing. Studies have shown that grounding can help with many of the common symptoms of menopause, such as:

- Hot flushes: Earthing can lower the core body temperature and reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flushes. This is because earthing can regulate the autonomic nervous system, which controls the blood vessels, sweat glands, and other functions that are involved in thermoregulation.

- Insomnia: Earthing can improve the quality and duration of sleep, and reduce the time it takes to fall asleep. This is because earthing can synchronise the circadian rhythms, which are the natural cycles of light and dark, wake and sleep, that govern our body clocks. Earthing can also increase the production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep and mood.

- Mood swings: Earthing can enhance the mood and reduce the stress, anxiety, and depression that often accompany menopause. This is because earthing can modulate the levels of cortisol, the hormone that is released in response to stress and affects the mood, memory, and metabolism. Earthing can also boost the levels of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that is responsible for happiness, well-being, and social behaviour.

- Inflammation: Earthing can reduce the inflammation and oxidative stress that are associated with many chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. This is because earthing can neutralise the excess free radicals that cause cellular damage and inflammation. Earthing can also improve the immune system and the wound healing process.

How to Practise Earthing

There are many ways to practise earthing, depending on your preferences, lifestyle, and availability. The simplest and most natural way is to go outside and make direct contact with the earth, such as walking barefoot on the grass, sand, or soil, sitting or lying on the ground, gardening, or swimming in natural water. Ideally, you should do this for at least 20 minutes a day, or as long as you can.

However, we understand that not everyone has the opportunity or the inclination to do this, especially in urban areas, cold climates, or busy schedules. That is why we have created a range of earthing products that allow you to enjoy the benefits of grounding or earthing indoors, at any time of the day or night, and in any weather condition. These products include:

- Grounding bed sheets: These are sheets that are made of organic cotton and silver threads, which are conductive and can transfer the earth's energy to your body while you sleep. All you need to do is to plug the sheet into a standard electrical outlet and then lie on it as you normally would. You can use your own bedding on top of the sheet. By using a grounding bed sheet, you will sleep better, feel happier, and wake up refreshed and rejuvenated.

- Grounding mats: These are mats that are similar to the bed sheets, but smaller and more versatile. You can use them on the floor, on the couch, on the desk, or anywhere else where you spend a lot of time sitting or standing. You can place your feet, hands, or any other part of your body on the mat, and connect it to a standard electrical outlet. By using a grounding mat, you will reduce your stress, improve your focus, and enhance your productivity.

menopause grounding benefits

From a Menopausal Mother in Melbourne (Lisa, 49)

"I've been suffering from menopause symptoms for the last two years and it has been hell. I used to be a happy, energetic, and confident woman, but menopause has turned me into a miserable, exhausted, and insecure mess.

I've tried everything to cope with the symptoms: herbal remedies, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, counselling, you name it. Nothing worked. I still had hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, anxiety, depression, weight gain, and low libido. My husband and kids were supportive, but I could tell they were getting tired of my constant complaints and moodiness. I felt like I was losing myself and my family.

One day, I came across a Facebook ad for grounding bed sheets. It claimed that sleeping on these sheets could improve your health and well-being by connecting you to the earth's natural energy. It sounded too good to be true, but I was desperate for a solution. I decided to give it a try and ordered a set of sheets for my bed.

The first night I slept on the grounding bed sheets, I didn't notice much difference. I still woke up several times during the night, feeling hot and sweaty. I thought it was another scam and I wasted my money. But I decided to give it another chance and kept sleeping on the sheets for the next few nights.

To my surprise, I started to notice some changes. I began to sleep through the night without waking up. I felt more refreshed and energised in the morning. I didn't have that groggy, hungover feeling that I used to have. I felt more alert and focused during the day.

After a week of sleeping on the grounding bed sheets, I realised that I hadn't had a hot flush in days. I also noticed that my PMS symptoms were reduced. I didn't have as much cramping, bloating, or irritability as before. I felt more balanced and calm.

After a month of sleeping on the grounding sheets, I felt like a new woman. I had no more menopause symptoms at all. I felt happier, healthier, and more confident. I had more interest and pleasure in sex. I had less pain and stiffness in my joints and muscles. I felt more connected to myself and my family.

I couldn't believe that something as simple as sleeping on a sheet could make such a difference in my life. I was amazed by the power of grounding and how it helped me overcome my menopause symptoms. I felt like I had regained control of my body and my life.

I'm so grateful that I found grounding sheets and gave them a try. They have changed my life for the better and I can't imagine sleeping without them.
