Physical Exercise Could Relieve Menopause Symptoms

A little exercise and routine walks could ease uncomfortable symptoms and help women feel better while going through menopause, new research finds//.

Menopause is the time in a woman's life when her menstrual cycle, associated with advancing age, stops. It usually occurs naturally, most often after age 45.

The four-month study by Penn State University researchers looked at the health of more than 160 women, dividing them into three groups.

One group met three times a week to walk for an hour, another group gathered for 90-minute yoga sessions twice a week and a third group didn't exercise, according to the findings that appeared in the journal Archives of General Psychiatry.

Women involved in yoga and routine walks reported better quality of life during menopause, reported UPI wire. Many of them reported improvement in their outlook and mood, and around half of them saw an improvement in hot flashes and night sweat.

Previous studies had said that exercise doesn't help hot flashes - an uncomfortable symptom of menopause that involves a brief feeling of intense warmth and sweating.

The four-month study is not the final word on the effects of exercise on menopause but researchers led by professor Steriani Elavsky say the bottom line is: exercise is always good.
