As women enter their 40s and 50s, they may start experiencing symptoms of perimenopause and menopause like hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, low sex drive, weight gain, mood swings, brain fog, and insomnia.
Most women have come to believe that all of these symptoms are an inevitable part of being an aging woman. However, I am here to share with you that this does not have to be your experience.
There are many evidence based nutrients and herbs that are available to treat symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Lifestyle and nutrition also plays a big role.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a unique treatment that I can provide as a naturopathic doctor who has passed additional licensing exams enabling me to prescribe pharmaceuticals. Bioidentical hormones have a molecular structure that is identical to that of our human hormones. They are made from natural, plant based extracts. Bioidentical hormonal therapy can be a great adjunct to the foundational dietary and lifestyle treatments to treat hormonal imbalances, and can often be the final addition to your treatment plan that can push you from feeling okay to feeling great.
