Health Tip: Coping With Menopausal Symptoms

By on December 29, 2009

Many women don’t require special treatment for menopausal symptoms, the National Women’s Health Information Center says.

The agency says some women may be helped by the following suggestions:

  • Keep cool by avoiding spicy foods and hot beverages, caffeine, stress and being in warm temperatures.
  • Use a vaginal lubricant to treat dryness.
  • Get plenty of exercise (but not too close to bedtime).
  • Eat a healthy diet, avoiding junk food.
  • Get plenty of rest. Keep your bedroom dark, quiet and cool, and avoid a daytime nap.
