Menopause and Perimenopause

What Causes It

Both menopause and perimenopause are normal phases in every woman’s life cycle. Menopause marks the end of the childbearing years, when ovulation and menstruation stop. It typically occurs between the ages of 45-49, but can begin in a woman’s 30s. Perimenopause is the 2-8 year span preceding menopause and is accompanied by many biological changes. For many women, these years can be difficult ones. Fluctuating hormone levels can cause uncomfortable and even incapacitating symptoms including hot flashes, mood swings, depression, insomnia, headaches, vaginal dryness, even irregular heartbeat.

How We Treat It

Since hormonal imbalances are what trigger the painful symptoms of perimenopausal and menopausal years, this is the core issue we treat. Bioidentical hormones, each a genetic match to your body’s own, are custom-formulated for each client. These replenish the estrogen and progesterone that can no longer be produced naturally. Only pure, natural plant and animal sources, along with those derived by sophisticated DNA replication, are used in each of our proprietary formulas. Our customized protocol also includes ongoing evaluation and rebalancing of hormones, which can fluctuate dramatically during perimenopause and menopause.
