Menopause Treatments

Menopause is defined as the final menstrual period and usually confirmed when a woman has not had her period for 12 consecutive months (unless there are other obvious causes).

Menopause occurs when your body loses enough of the hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. All of these hormones are very important and help our bodies to function optimally. When we start losing these hormones, it’s very apparent that our sense of well-being is suffering and our body is no longer working like it used to.

On average, menopause occurs around age 51 and marks the end of a woman’s ability to bear children. Some women experience menopause at an earlier age for a variety of reasons.

Although sometimes it may feel like it, menopause is not a disease, it is a natural process. Many women experience some normal, albeit unpleasant, physical changes that may be incredibly disrupting to your everyday life.

There are a number of disease processes that also arise at the same time as our hormones are decreasing. The onset of osteoporosis, high cholesterol, type two diabetes, high blood pressure and dementia to name a few, also coincide with a loss of our hormones.

It is no coincidence that we are generally at our healthiest and fittest in our teens/twenties when are hormones are at their peaks.
