Understanding Perimenopausal Symptoms: Unraveling the Connection to Chronic Inflammation

If you’re a woman going through perimenopause, you might be experiencing some frustrating symptoms like fatigue, insomnia, weight gain, irregular periods, and loss of sex drive 😔. But did you know that the root cause of these symptoms could be constantly recurring low-grade inflammation? Let’s talk about chronic inflammation, declining hormones, and gut health, and how they’re all connected to your overall health and well-being.

Chronic Inflammation: The Culprit Behind Perimenopausal Frustrations

So, what exactly is it? It’s an ongoing state of inflammation in the body that can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and constantly recurring infections. If left unchecked, can lead to serious health conditions like obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

As women go through perimenopause, their levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone start to decline, which can lead to an increase in constantly recurring inflammation. Additionally, gut health is closely tied to constantly recurring inflammation, as the gut is home to trillions of bacteria that play a crucial role in digestion, immune function, and hormone regulation. When the balance of these bacteria is disrupted, it can lead to inflammation and a host of health issues.

This can have a significant impact on your body systems, from weakening your immune system and making you more susceptible to infections, to causing breathing problems, digestive issues, joint pain, and even cognitive decline.

But don’t worry, there are steps you can take to lower inflammation and improve your overall health. Some solutions include:
