Menopause

Menopause

Keep Cool. Look Hot.

Menopause is an important transition in every woman’s life. When it occurs naturally, it happens to most women between the ages of 45 and 55 (average age is 50). During this time called perimenopause, your periods may slowly become irregular and may become heavier or lighter. When menopause happens surgically (by having a hysterectomy), this phase is more abrupt and immediate.

Ideally, this is a smooth transformation that is relatively symptom-free.  However, many women experience hot flashes, trouble sleeping, headaches, fatigue, urinary changes, mood swings and foggy thinking. These symptoms can have a profound impact on your life.

The symptoms that come with menopause can seem challenging, but there is relief. Our Healthy Menopause Program will help ease your transition and balance your body. Our doctors can lab test your hormone levels and create a customized plan to optimize your health and relieve your menopausal symptoms.

Natural treatment may include a hormone-balancing nutritional plan, natural supplements, and acupuncture. In addition, our doctors may discuss the option of hormone replacement therapy. Your individual benefits and risks will be evaluated and if indicated your doctor will prescribe bioidentical hormones.
