Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her menstrual cycle stops, and reproductive ovary function is lost. For many women, this phase life occurs between 45-50 years of age, but in some cases, women can become menopausal as early as their thirties or as early as their sixties.
Menopause happens because of hormonal changes, or more accurately, changes in the levels of hormone the body is able to naturally produce. These changes take a toll on women both mentally and physically. Menopause is a personal experience for women, but in addition to changes in mood and energy, women may also experience hot flashes, vaginal dryness, headaches, low libido, weight gain, incontinence, and many other unpleasant symptoms.
The good news is Metro Best Health in Columbia, MD offers safe and natural bioidentical hormone therapy that can help women restore their hormonal balance and get relief from these challenging physical and emotional symptoms of menopause.
While some of the symptoms of menopause are relatively well-known, such as night sweats, hot flashes, depression, lack of energy, and weight gain, there are many dangers of menopause that are not as commonly understood or acknowledged.
These additional symptoms of menopause can make life challenging for women. Hormonal decline during menopause is also responsible for conditions that cause dryness of the vagina, shrinking of vaginal tissues as well as vaginal itching and burning. This leads to a steep decline in sexual desires and can cause painful sex and urinary incontinence.
Women suffering from menopause are also more likely to experience poor sleep quality. These disruptive sleep patterns can then cause poor cognitive function, memory problems and chronic fatigue.
Menopause can also be associated with serious conditions such as osteoporosis, heart disease and certain cancers.
Manage Symptoms of Menopause with Hormone Therapy
As the medical community learns more about the symptoms and dangers of menopause, they are unable to ignore the need to find a solution for women who are in danger of cardiovascular disease, decreased quality of life, bone weakness, and diabetes secondary to decrease in hormone production during menopause.
Metro Best Health in Columbia, MD is offering bioidentical hormone therapy as a highly effective treatment for menopausal symptoms. This treatment is useful for the common symptoms such as hot flashes, weight gain, mood issues, as well as aid in protection against the more serious matters of heart disease, incontinence, and osteoporosis.
How Hormone Therapy Treats Menopause Symptoms
Traditional hormone therapy a form of treatment that offers women synthetic hormones, but bioidentical hormone therapy is a form of treatment that uses natural hormones that are identical to what women’s bodies can longer produce during menopause.
While there are certain things we can control when it comes to leading a long and healthy life, such as maintaining a healthy diet, getting enough physical activity, and keeping our and keeping our mind active, women cannot control every aspect of menopause and are no longer able to produce what their body naturally did during their fertile years – for this reason, supplementing with bioidentical hormone therapy should be viewed in the same way we would supplement for vitamin deficiency.
At Metro Best Clinic, bioidentical hormone therapy pellets are the preferred method of treatment for women experiencing menopause symptoms. Pellets are derived from plant-based sources, versus the synthetic lab made approach to other forms of traditional treatment. Because these pellets mimic the body’s own hormones, they are more bio-available in the bloodstream, which allows this form of bioidentical hormone therapy to accelerate the benefits of treatment and result in a decreased risk of side effects.
Pellets are also a beneficial form of hormone therapy because they allow patients to cease worrying about times of patches, pills, creams, or any other time-based form of hormone therapy. Pellets are placed under the skin through a tiny incision and are absorbed on a time-released basis through the blood stream as a woman’s body needs it.
Pelleting is a form of bioidentical hormone therapy that allows women to take control of their symptoms and live the life they deserve – this simple procedure allows for longer relief of symptoms, too! This means you only return to the office every 3-4 months for re-insertion.
Is Hormone Therapy Safe for Menopause?
Because bioidentical hormones naturally mimic the body’s own hormones, many health organizations now recognize their effectiveness and safety in treating symptoms of menopause. While previous studies may have indicated that there is an increased risk of uterine cancer when taking estrogen therapy alone, new clinical evidence shows that taking estrogen therapy alongside progesterone for endometrial protection is greatly reduced risk of uterine problems.
When considering the benefits to improve and increase a woman’s lifespan, any concerns about bioidentical hormone therapy are overshadowed by the benefits of common symptom treatment and the ability to protect against cardiovascular disease, cancers, bone density issues, vaginal and bladder health, as well as restore overall quality of life for women suffering from menopause.
