What is the Truth about Menopause and Bioidentical Hormones? Read Here

I have been treating people with hormone problems for the past four years and the information that I have gathered is critical to your immediate and long term health and well being. Information your doctors don't have and the drug companies certainly don't want you to know.

Menopause is permanent! It is the Permanent Loss of your Sex Hormone System. Your ability to produce estradiol and progesterone depends on if you have any eggs left in your ovaries or if they are function-able! If you leave menopause untreated, it will affect your entire body. It causes numerous, immediate health problems, accelerates aging, and leads to the degenerative diseases of aging that women experience later in life.

I know estradiol and progesterone are essential to our health. They help us to be fit and functional today and over time, helps to prevent degenerative diseases like cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, blood clots, dementia, autoimmune diseases like arthritis and fibromyalgia. They also slow down the pace at which we age.

My patients who are absent of these two hormones are plagued by fatigue, abdominal weight gain, hair loss, constipation, headaches, digestive problems, brain fog and memory loss, irritability, anxiety, depression, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, insomnia, restless sleep, increased cholesterol, etc etc etc. The list is long ladies!

Some of you think you "skipped menopause" because you don't or didn't have any symptoms. Your body is still experiencing challenges you may be completely unaware of because no woman is escaping menopause. Menopause is permanent loss of your sex hormones. You never regain your ability to produce these two hormones. These hormones ARE essential to your health women!!

My approach to treating hormone loss is probably very different from what you have experienced from your doctor. Please understand, doctors are trained in medical school to treat ONLY THE SYMPTOMS of menopause. Not the cause!! The standard of care treatment is hormone drugs, patches, birth control pills, vaginal creams...Uggg

We can empower each other through education and knowledge. Fear and confusion has led women to believe that their own hormones are dangerous, cancer causing molecules! Oh my!! I really want this to change for women! My goal is to educate you and then you can make a choice. Similar to if you want to take supplements, vitamins, exercise, stop smoking, etc. You have that right to choose whether or not you do certain things that make you healthier. Shouldn't you have the same right to replace your hormones as well?

Read my article about proper levels of hormones in the body and learn what is optimal. Then, use only bioidentical transdermal hormones in cyclic, rhythmic dosing to acquire those levels. The results are self evident.
