A hot cup of coffee in the morning tastes great, but is it worth all the hot flushes and mood swings? And is caffeine bad for menopause?
It might sound like a bold statement to say that caffeine causes mood swings and other symptoms, but it is true.
The truth is that caffeine is bad for menopause and one of the most overlooked triggers of menopausal symptoms. It is not a cause of these problems, but it is often the things that triggers these symptoms to start.
When does this start to happen?
For women in the perimenopause stage, drinking caffeinated beverages seems to actually lessen some symptoms like memory problems and mood swings. However, the problem seems to appear in women during the late stages of menopause, as well as those who have already gone through menopause. Women in these stages tend to have bigger issues with menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats after drinking a caffeinated beverage sometime during the day. This means that it was not only the effect of the caffeine that was keeping them awake at night but also the fact that they were experiencing heavy cases of night sweats and hot flashes.
But I need coffee to keep me going after a poor nights rest
Well, to make matters worse, drinking more caffeine during the day to compensate for lack of sleep usually just sends you spinning into an endless vicious cycle. While it might seem difficult to cut coffee out of your diet, it might become easier if you think about the benefits of better sleep and less menopausal symptoms to deal with
What should I do if I cant have my coffee?
Firstly, sort out your diet. Follow the Manna Diet, which is more of a lifestyle than a diet. Part of the Diet is to reduce coffee, sugar and starches, which can all contribute to hot flashes.
