Menopause and Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Menopause and peri-menopause treated with bioidentical hormone therapy. “I just want to feel me again.”
Menopause Signs and Symptoms
You are starting to experience more irregular cycles. Maybe occasional hot flashes and night sweats. Brain fog or fuzzy thinking. More irritability or emotional ups and downs (labile emotions). You cry for no reason. You suddenly want everything re-arranged or changed in your life.
This is a typical early stage of peri-menopause which often begins about age 44-48. It culminates in the final act — full menopause — at an average age of 51-53. There is tremendous variation. There are cases of women undergoing “the change” as young as 31. And some who do not go into full menopause up to age 58. It is an individual process.
It is a consequence of the rapidly declining or fluctuating sex hormones. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels are imbalanced. You experience more irregular menstrual cycling.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
The case for hormone replacement therapy becomes more compelling. Erroneous and disastrous conclusions have followed the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI). It’s the type of hormone replacement that makes all the difference.
We have helped thousands of women over the past 20 years. You can join this trend.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy sets us apart from other providers. We use a combination of specially compounded bio-identical progesterone. And slow release bioidentical estradiol (the healthy estrogen). That approximates your own declining or irregularly cycling native hormones. Bio-identical, because they have less side effects. And because they support critical target organs.
Over the years we have determined that slow release 17-beta estradiol decreases more harmful estrone and its downstream metabolites. Contrary to popular notions, 17-beta estradiol has protective properties. We contend that estrogen does not cause disease.
Estradiol is vital to your heart … brain … bones … blood lipids … and normal lubricating secretions.
