RESTORE YOUR BALANCE!
Hormone Replacement Therapy in women is an opportunity to alleviate symptoms associated with peri-menopause, menopause, or surgical menopause through the rebalancing of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Most women experience menopause at an average age of 51 years old, but others can experience menopause as early as 35 years old or as late as 55 years old. “Premature menopause” is menopause that occurs prior to the age of 40. It can be caused by the surgical removal of both ovaries, chemotherapy, or cancers/tumors.
Perimenopause is the stage prior to menopause, where ovarian function slowly begins to decline. The ovaries produce lower and lower amounts of testosterone and estrogen from year to year, which may result in symptoms of hormone deficiency.
Many women begin to experience symptoms 5 to 10 years prior to being diagnosed with “menopause”. As many as 80% of women experience physical or psychological symptoms associated with perimenopause or menopause.
Hormone therapy remains the most effective treatment for vasomotor symptoms (ie. hot flashes, night sweats) and the genitourinary syndrome of menopause (ie. vaginal dryness, urinary leakage). Hormone therapy has also been shown to prevent bone loss and fracture, reducing the risk of developing osteoporosis.
Other benefits may include:
Improvements in mood, sleep, and heart health.
Preservation of memory and cognitive function.
Promotion of growth and repair processes in the body, leading to improved wellness and longevity
