About Menopause

Menopause, also known as “the change of life”, generally occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 for most women.

Some women breeze through menopause without barely a symptom or hot flush, however for other women, menopause can become a battleground of hot flashes and sweats, mood changes, libido changes, sleep difficulties, and unexplained weight gain.

In our experience through the use of specific hormone and pathology testing alongside powerful natural medicine strategies, menopause does not need to be a feared or difficult time.

Some of the tests we may utilise together include blood hormone testing, salivary hormone testing, DUTCH hormone testing, urinary oestrogen and oestrogen metabolite testing, adrenal hormone testing including cortisol and DHEAs, blood insulin levels, thyroid hormone levels, inflammatory markers, bone health markers, and many more depending on your individual needs.

Natural medicines alone will often reduce the distressing symptoms of menopause quickly within a short period of time.

We experience great joy in helping our patients regain their quality of life, quality sleep, balanced mood, and confidence within themselves.
