Perimenopause and Menopause
As we age, a cascade of hormones including testosterone, human growth hormone, DHEA, thyroid hormone and others gradually begin to decline. With declining hormone levels, undesirable symptoms such as decline sex drive, joy-of-life, and overall energy usually start to present in the mid 30′s to 50′s. We also see increasing risk of serious medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.Before, during, and after menopause hormonal regulation of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterone will significantly reduce symptoms including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, skin thinning, memory loss, lack of concentration, anxiety, depression, weight gain, irritability, fatigue, insomnia, decreased sex drive, urinary incontinence, muscle weakness, and joint pain.
Bio-identical hormone replacement of sex hormones has been shown to protect against heart disease, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, and mental decline.
