Ladies, did you know during menopause, your hormone levels may drastically fall. Most of us will experience uncomfortable symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, weight gain, insomnia and anxiety. Millions more may suffer from hormonal imbalance due to early menopause, perimenopause or premenstrual syndrome (PMS). In many cases, bioidentical hormone therapy is the right solution. Perimenopause weight gain is often times one of the first signs of hormonal imbalance. Menopause and related conditions are also connected to your stress levels, poor nutrition, lack of exercise and environmental toxins your body is exposed to on a daily basis. Hormonal imbalances are the root cause of many chronic health problems and can increase your risk of serious disease. In women, the symptoms often first appear in perimenopause or menopause when estrogen, progesterone and testosterone production begins to diminish. The good news is that hormone losses and imbalances are correctable. Through the use of bioidentical hormones, you can not only be relieved of the symptoms, but also effectively protect yourself against osteoporosis and heart disease. Natural hormone replacement therapy can make you feel healthier, younger and more energetic.
