When women reach their mid-thirties to mid to late forties, they often begin to suffer from menopausal and premenopausal symptoms. If you’re interested in the most effective menopause help, it’s time you learned about the root cause of menopause symptoms from a holistic medical doctor at MD Wellness.
Menopause Symptoms and Treatment
Menopause is a natural progression in a woman’s life involving the cessation of ovulation and menses, which brings many changes. Levels of estrogen and progesterone drop causing hot flashes, mood swings, and physical changes in bone density body, fat distribution and hair growth. While menopause help can include over-the-counter medicines and prescriptions, this is a symptoms based approach that does not get to the root cause of the problem.
Many women (and many doctors) are under the erroneous impression that all of their menopausal symptoms are caused by low estrogen levels. Drugs like Premarin (horse derived estrogen) and other non-bioidentical hormone replacement therapies are frequently prescribed to treat these symptoms. A more natural, physiologic and effective approach to manage menopause symptoms and treatment is to fix the hormonal imbalances that are underlying the menopausal symptoms.
Sex hormones (like estrogen and progesterone) are made not only by the ovaries and corpus luteum but also by the adrenal glands. In a healthy woman with healthy adrenal glands, the transition to menopause is fairly smooth and inconsequential. This is because healthy adrenal glands are able to increase their output of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterone when the production of these hormones by the ovaries and corpus luteum decline. However, should you have insufficient adrenal reserves, your hormone levels will drop precipitously and severe symptoms will manifest.
Holistic treatment for menopause from a holistic medical doctor will therefore look at the dietary, lifestyle and genetic influences that can lead to excessive adrenal stress and adrenal fatigue. These unrelenting stressors will ultimately manifest as disturbed hormone balance, which is why menopause help from a holistic medical doctor at MD Wellness is so important.
Holistic Treatment for Menopause
The key to reducing menopausal and premenopausal symptoms is obtaining hormonal and metabolic balance. Unlike conventional treatments like over-the-counter medications and prescriptions, holistic treatments for menopause get to the root cause of your problems rather than simply covering up your symptoms.
