Menopause symptoms differ from woman to woman. Their severity also varies with some women experiencing minimal discomfort and others feeling incapacitated. The symptoms come on due to changing hormone levels, particularly the decline in production of estrogen and progesterone that happens as you age.
Signs and symptoms of menopause include:
The old definition of menopause was having no period for one year. Nowadays, menopause can be diagnosed by specific hormonal testing. Menopause can start as early as your late 30s, and no later than early 50s. Menopause rarely occurs after the age of 55
Perimenopause is the time prior to menopause when many of the symptoms associated with menopause begin to occur. You may experience perimenopause for up to 7 years leading up to full menopause.
Dr. Reiss will complete a thorough analysis of your medical history and symptoms before starting menopause treatment. He’ll complete a hormonal and nutritional study to determine what deficiencies exist and how they can be corrected to alleviate your discomfort.
He will recommend bioidentical hormonal therapy, which replaces all hormones that are diminishing due to menopause, to help alleviate symptoms and make you feel better. In addition, specific nutritional guidelines are given.
Bioidentical hormone therapy replaces hormones that are out of balance in your system. It can be used to help women during menopause, as well as to treat men with low testosterone. For women, the therapy helps reduce the symptoms of menopause by restoring estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, human growth hormone, pregnenolone, melatonin, testosterone, oxytocin, and melanin. levels. Dr. Reiss will customize the blend, so you get the right mix for you.
Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant ingredients and match the exact makeup of the hormones your body produces so it can absorb them readily.
