Menopause and Stress
What can I do next to help with my burning eyes? What do you think of an Eyelid scrub, serum, or Hormonal Replacement Therapy? I’m so desperate.
Using our Omega-3 and our spray is a great start, so thank you for doing that. Before adding an eyelid scrub, I would say continue using our spray. It’s less chemicals and an eyelid scrub will do the same thing but it’s got a lot of surfactants in it. It’s hard to answer your questions because your symptom is only burning eyes. There’s a lot more that you can do.
The serum, I’m guessing you’re talking about autologous serum, that’s a great option. It’s making a drop out of your body’s blood so it’s very natural. I’ve only done it about ten times on patients, but I’ve had great success with it.
HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) can be "iffy". I would probably not do that. You also mentioned stress, you just went through the hurricane, I think stress definitely plays into it and can make things worse. Start a gratitude journal. Every night, write down three things that went really well that day, three things that you’re grateful for and do that every single night. That will really get you on a good path of, hopefully, getting you out of that stress. We do a lot of meditation too, so that’s something that you could look into that could really help.
The email sequence that I keep talking about in our dryeyecommunity.com, I’m on my seventh email that I am writing, and this is also going to be a book that I’m probably gonna publish as well. The seventh email is all about meditation and stress and how it affects your dry eyes. It definitely plays a huge role. HRT just depends on what you’re using it for. Some women won’t go off of it because of what it treats, but it is going cause dryness and menopause will cause dry eye as well.
