Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the time a woman ends her menstrual cycle. The average healthy woman begins menopause at 51, though some women will begin in their 40s or their late 50s.

Several symptoms commonly manifest around the time of menopause including mood swings, hot flashes, low energy levels, reduced sex drive, muscle and joint pain and difficulty sleeping. While several hormonal and non-hormonal treatments are used to address these symptoms, various lifestyle interventions can help women to cope with the menopause.
