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.

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

  • Hot flushes/hot flashes

More About Menopause

Is suffering through menopause a normal part of aging?

Many women assume that suffering through menopause is a natural part of the aging process and that the symptoms will eventually diminish – some women even suffer from menopause symptoms for 20 years or more before looking for assistance.

However, we firmly believe this is not necessary!

Utilising a combination of hormone testing, natural medicines and lifestyle guidelines we aim to resolve most menopause symptoms within a short period of time.
