Mood-Boosting Health

Mood-Boosting Health and Wellbeing Products Suitable for Mature Women

There is no denying that women over 50 are more susceptible to mental health issues than they were younger. While a lot of things can contribute to this, menopause is always the biggest culprit. During menopause, women experience hormonal changes. The result? Mood changes happen (think; irritability, aggressiveness, sadness, depression, and stress). While medications and psychotherapy may help, I have a different idea-CBD oil. CBD oil does not need an introduction if you are a member of the cannabis community. However, as a quick refresher, CBD oil is a hugely popular form of CBD or cannabidiol. When consumed, it activates the serotonin receptors found in our brain. As a result, the serotonin levels climb. We all know the mental-related benefits of high serotonin levels. As a mental health expert, I prefer CBD oil to antidepressants because it works super-fast. What’s more, it helps you avoid the side effects of antidepressants- sexual dysfunction, sleep issues, and loss of appetite.

I am deeply convinced that each patient needs a unique, individual approach. Therefore, I use different psychotherapy methods in my work. During my studies, I discovered an in-depth interest in people as a whole and the belief in the inseparability of mind and body, and the importance of emotional health in physical health. In my spare time, I enjoy reading (a big fan of thrillers) and going on hikes.
