How We Can Help
There is no one MENOPAUSE. Every woman experiences different symptoms including:
- Irregular periods.
- Vaginal dryness.
- Hot flashes.
- Night sweats.
- Sleep problems.
- Mood changes.
- Weight gain and slowed metabolism.
At EstrogenicA we start with an overall health consultation to understand your body and can mediate your menopausal symptoms that work WITH your body through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Bioidentical hormones are made from plant estrogens and contain the same molecular structure as the hormones produced by your own body.
How BRHT Works
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy starts with lab work to determine your body’s current hormone levels.
Transdermal (through the skin) application of bioidentical hormones is best because it bypasses the liver and gastrointestinal system. When hormones are swallowed, they are altered by the liver, whereas hormones that are absorbed go directly to body tissue, unaltered by the digestive system.
For most women, BRHT is a “combination therapy” that is intended to restore your usual levels of both estrogen and progesterone. Your body produces less and less of these critical hormones during menopause, leading to many of the telltale symptoms of the condition.
What to Expect
During the first phase of your therapy, you will be frequently tested to make sure that each hormone component is in its proper balance. Once your hormonal balance is restored, you may only require an annual treatment.
You will see improvement from bioidentical hormone therapy within the first 2-3 weeks of treatment, but it will take up to 8 weeks to feel the full effect. Most women report experiencing relief from their symptoms with bioidentical hormones.
We may recommend that you continue to take BHRT for as long as you experience disruptive menopausal symptoms. How long moderate to severe menopause symptoms last varies significantly from woman to woman, but it ranges most often between 2-7 years.
At EstrogenicA, we try to see to it that the treatment for any specific condition is in sync with other organic functions of your body to achieve Health 360. Our menopause treatments are no different.
Together we can change not only how you feel ABOUT menopause, but change how menopause feels.
We look forward to sharing this time with you and making it the best it can be.
