B-12 for Menopause Symptoms

If you are in menopause, you may be suffering from one or more of these symptoms related to B-12 deficiency:

  • Fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Depression
  • Anemia
  • Vision Loss
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Tingling in hands or feet
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Loss of Muscle control

Vitamin B-12 is an important vitamin that is hard to receive in adequate amounts as we age. As we near 45 years, the changes in our body make it even more difficult to properly metabolize this important nutrient.

Here at the Hysterectomy Store, we’ve discovered the B-12 patch is a great way of getting the B-12 our body needs. You place the patch behind your ear for 24 hours – once a week! Each box contains a one month supple – 4 patches.

Hydrate!

Summer is hot! We typically need more water in these months anyway, but having surgery recovery during these months means EVEN MORE water needed!

We recommend keeping a water bottle near you at all times. There are even apps that set off alarms often to remind you to take sips.

During your hysterectomy recovery, your body relies on water to help it return to its normal functions. Your bladder needs to wake up. Your intestines need the extra fluid to keep your bowel movements soft.

Add to those reasons, water helps to flush out toxins of anesthesia and medicines that are no longer needed.  Think of water as clearing out the debris!

Water also helps prevent UTI as it dilutes urine and provides a natural work-out for your kidneys.

So make sure to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Tip Tuesday – Hydrate

Happy Tip Tuesday!

One vital part of recovery is keeping your body hydrated to it can heal. Especially during winter months, it can be hard to keep hydrated as we don’t feel as thirsty. Make sure to keep a glass of water or bottle near you. Some ladies even set alarms to help remind them to keep up with the water intake. Even if you aren’t thirsty, make sure you are drinking those ounces! Help your body to heal faster and return to normal functions.
