Can't Sleep? Why Not?

The management of menopause today is a confusing and borders on negligence. As a result, women’s quality of life and longevity are being unnecessarily compromised. While health care professionals continue to debate about when menopause begins and ends, whether menopause should or should not be treated, and if so, with what, for how long, and by what delivery method, millions of women suffer needlessly and billions of health care dollars are pointlessly expended.

The current approach to managing menopause is either to do nothing or to simply treat its symptoms but not its cause. This approach is wrong, shortsighted, destructive and costly to women.

It is wrong for a number of reasons. One, this approach views menopause as merely a harmless transition out of a woman’s childbearing years during which she must cope with a number of temporary, bothersome symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, loss of libido, INSOMNIA, weight gain around our midsection, heart disease, bone loss leading to osteoporosis, forgetfulness leading to dementia.

Failure to treat menopause correctly is unacceptable to me! It is not as if menopause affects only a small fraction of the population. It affects all women who live to middle age — that’s 50% of the population, 100% of the time! Furthermore, the cause of menopause is absolutely known, as are its effects.

The medical profession is woefully misinformed about the long-term effects of menopause on a woman’s quality of life and well being. We didn’t used to live long enough for the ravages of menopause to be apparent!

In other words, we are in this mess due to misinformation, misunderstanding, and a lack of financial incentive to change it. Actually, if you ask me, for some, there is a tremendous disincentive to change it. The drug companies and hospital facilities make billions of dollars thanks to the mistreatment of menopause.

I practice what I preach. I treat menopause as the permanent loss of a hormone system. By treating the cause of menopause, I successfully help literally thousands of women slow down their aging process, defend against degenerative diseases, lose weight, have more energy, and generally feel better, while at the same time effectively treat such common menopause problems as:

• Hot flashes
• Sleep disruption
• Heart palpitations
• Night sweats
• Vaginal dryness
• Low sex drive and difficulty achieving orgasms.

By treating the cause of menopause, I have also been able to:

• Reduce cholesterol levels without cholesterol lowering medications
• Normalize blood pressure without blood pressure lowering medications
• Remedy sleep disorders without sleeping pills
• Improve blood sugar levels in women with diabetes without drugs or insulin
• Increase bone density without using anti-resorptive drugs.

The results are truly amazing!
