14 Dec Combat the Symptoms of Menopause with NATURAL Hormones
For women, menopause is simply an unavoidable step in the aging process and something that they must all face when the time comes. Menopause is the term used to describe the last menstrual cycle a woman has, but the time leading up to this final menstrual cycle, many women experience what is known as menopausal and premenopausal symptoms. While menopause is a normal and natural part of life, many women are understandably nervous about some of these side effects that come with this change in their body.
Menopause symptoms can vary from woman to woman, but they typically include side effects such as; fatigue, hot flashes, weight gain, irritability, low sex drive, anxiety, sleep issues and depression. While there is nothing that women can do to prevent menopause from taking place, there are ways to combat the symptoms of menopause.
Here at Heritage Family Medicine and Aesthetics, we proudly offer Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for our women patients that are struggling with some of the side effects of menopause.
What Exactly are Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bio-Identical hormones have the exact same chemical structure as the hormones your body naturally produces. These hormone compounds better assimilate into the body without some of the side effects that can come with synthetic hormones.
There are multiple hormones in women that can drop to low levels or get out-of-balance, especially during menopause. When women stop ovulating, their hormones levels typically change, and BHRT can help restore balance.
Why BHRT for Menopause?
The reason that menopause comes with so many side effects is that menopause is often accompanied by low hormonal levels. By age 40, most women have significantly reduced estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels. Bio-identical hormones can replace these low levels in your body to not only help with menopausal side effects but to help women feel more youthful and energized as well.
