If you’re in your teens and twenties, know that all the abuse you may be putting your bodies through right now will come back to bite you some day! Excessive junk food, poor sleep habits, yo-yo dieting, refusal to exercise, skipping medical and dental checkups… it’s all building up in your system. And even if you think you’re just fine, it’s going to wreak havoc when you don’t expect it, unless you make some drastic changes now. “But I live by faith!” Good for you. So let’s add some intelligence to that faith!

 

When a woman reaches menopause, how she’s treated her health until then starts to show in all the aches, pains, bloating, insomnia, hot flashes, weight gain and high blood pressure and more. Either that, or she just gracefully ages, depending on how well she’s cared for herself. God created all women to be able to smoothly transition into menopause without all the drama that so many of us go through! How?

 

On top of our kidneys are two tiny adrenal glands. They make adrenaline, and cortisol, the hormones that flood our bodies with energy when we need a boost of strength, like when an accident happens or when something fearful shocks us, or even if we’re forced to stand in front of a crowd and speak, or any other situation where we feel even a little bit threatened. They get our hearts pumping, tighten our stomachs, and tense our muscles so we can either run or face the threat. These little glands also make the exact same hormones that our ovaries make as well: estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These are our lovely lady hormones that keep us soft, happy, feminine, alert and clear minded to multitask as moms, wives, daughters, employees, bosses, counselors, teachers, cleaners, cooks and everything else women often do every day. God bless ‘em!

 

So when our ovaries slow down their hormone production, our menopause journey begins (usually around 30 or 35, even though hardly any change is noticeable at that stage). Our adrenal glands are supposed to gradually take over to keep us balanced and healthy even though estrogen levels are slowly dropping. By the time we reach our 50s, we transition from being fertile women with the potential to bear multiple healthy babies, into mature women who no longer produce eggs and no longer have any need for monthly periods. Ideally, our adrenal glands keep all our changing hormones at an even balance, enabling us to gracefully age, and finally be able to accomplish many more tasks for God because our children are grown, our marriages are stable, and our experiences have made us wiser and able to serve Him in a way we never could before. Menopause is supposed to be a wonderful, enjoyable phase of life!
