Menopause is a fact of life and something virtually all women must go through. However, it remains a “taboo” subject for many women and one that is unpleasant to discuss in public. With open dialogue in person and online and the availability of natural menopause treatment in Monroe there is no need to be silent and suffer alone any longer.
Between the ages of 40-55, most women experience menopause, with the median age being 51. It can last anywhere from 2-8 years and often has uncomfortable symptoms due to fluctuating changes in estrogen levels:
- Hot flashes
- Insomnia and other sleeping problems
- Night sweats
- Irregular periods
- Urinary difficulties
- Vaginal dryness
- Mood swings
The most common way doctors deal with menopausal symptoms is to prescribe hormone replacement therapy or HRT. While medications may help to relieve some issues, the side effects are often worse than the symptoms themselves and can lead to other health problems after continuous use.
Naturopathic medical practitioners have long known that there are safer alternatives to harmful prescription drugs for menopausal symptoms. After evaluation of your individual circumstances, a naturopathic physician may recommend nutritional changes, an exercise regimen, vitamin and mineral supplementation, stress relievers, administration of natural progesterone and phytoestrogens.
