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 becomes a battle ground of not only uncomfortable physical symptoms such as hot flashes, but also mental and emotional symptoms, difficultly sleeping and unexplained weight gain.

More About Menopause

Is suffering through menopause symptoms a normal part of aging?

Many women assume that suffering through menopause symptoms is a natural part of the aging process, and that the symptoms will eventually diminish – some women even suffer with menopause symptoms for 20 years or more before looking for assistance. Thankfully this is certainly not necessary. Utilising a combination of hormone testing, natural medicines and lifestyle guidelines we are usually able to resolve most menopause symptoms in a short period of time.

Natural Medicine for Menopause

Our approach to menopause involves testing your individual hormone levels, so that we can understand exactly which imbalances are causing your menopause symptoms and discomfort. Hormone testing may include blood tests, but also salivary hormone testing which gives us a detailed understanding of what is causing your symptoms.

 

Once we receive your results, we are able to resolve the underlying hormonal imbalances which are causing your menopause symptoms. Read here for more information about hormone testing.
