Caring for an elderly parent or spouse is tough.
Not only physically and financially but watching a loved one decline is emotionally difficult.
Yet, for many women, caregiving often collides with the menopause—adding extra pressure.
Research shows half of all carers are women and nearly a fifth of these are aged 50-64.
Coping with menopausal symptoms like sleeplessness, mood swings and hot flushes alone is challenging, without the extra pressure of caregiving.
At the same time, don’t beat yourself up if you feel stressed or overwhelmed as it’s perfectly normal.
But it means you must take extra care of yourself.
If you feel the menopause is affecting your mood, try taking our Kira LowMood relief. This is a traditional herbal medicine containing St John’s Wort—a herb tried and tested for centuries to help relieve the symptoms of low mood and mild anxiety.
