The Naturopathic approach:
Symptoms that occur with menopause range in severity from extreme to moderate to mild. Not all women experience significant discomfort during their perimenopause, menopause, and post menopausal years. Our approach involves assessing the hormonal levels via dried urine and other lab tests to examine the balance of estrogen and progesterone and associated symptoms. Our individualized functional treatments include diet and lifestyle modifications, acupuncture, botanicals and vitamins to correct deficiencies as well as ease the transition into menopause.
Menopause is a natural decline in hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone as ovarian function ceases. The adrenal glands continue to produce sex hormones after menopause; for some women who experience continued aggravating symptoms, may require bio-identical hormonal intervention offered at The Wellness Suite.
