Menopause anger outbursts may leave you feeling like your life is spiraling out of control. In this article there will be some steps to take to get back your sanity.
First tip is try cutting out caffeine, alcohol and sugar from your diet. I dont mean just totally stop but at least cut down to start with. The reason being that these substances can influence hormones in such a way that leads to menopause anger outbursts. Initially it may seem like a lot to ask to cut out ‘foods and drinks’ that you sometimes depend on to lift your mood. However it is important to remember that while these substances may make you feel better short term, what goes up must come down and within an hour you will be back to where you started. This leads to a further desire to take something that is ultimately causing you harm and harming further an already fragile relationships with your loved ones. Why not try to cut these these ingredients out of your diet for just 4 days and see what happens. Or take smaller steps maybe and cut them out one at a time. If you manage to cut out sugar and alcohol from your lifestyle and caffeinated drinks (like the expensive coffee drinks you buy from Starbucks for example), you will feel emotionally better. As a bonus you may have also lost some weight.
Another suggestion for menopause anger outbursts is to get into some form of therapy or to take an anger management course. It helps greatly to talk about your situation to a professional who can help you cope. You will better express your concerns and better deal with the situations that have a tendency to make you have an outburst. Be sure to find a professional who specializes in helping women make the transition through menopause. Such a person understands all the factors that come into play that can lead to menopause anger outbursts, resentment and depression.

Marcy Holmes,a nurse practitioner, who appeared on the Dr. Oz show recently, says “We know that progesterone is one of the hormones that affects the brain. We also know that it’s one of the hormones that changes quite a bit in these perimenopause years. So for some women, replenishing just a low dose of the missing progesterone calms down the roller coaster,” She also adds that “…they are available in health food stores…you want to get a good brand and you definitely want to make sure that the label says “USP progesterone” on it so that you will know that the active ingredient is there and not just an extract.
