Regain Your Equilibrium with Hormone Optimization Therapy

Menopause signifies the end of menstruation in the life of a woman. It begins when a woman stops ovulating and she no longer produces estrogen, a female sex hormone. Menopause literally means ‘the last period’. This natural event marks the end of the woman’s reproductive years, in the same way that her initial menstrual period signified the beginning. Quite a few women develop unpleasant symptoms during menopause that can be effectively treated using hormone optimization therapy.

 

Although not all women experience uncomfortable symptoms around the time of menopause, many women experience hot flashes, sleep disturbances, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. Lifestyle changes like improved diet and exercise can help improve the symptoms, along with hormone optimization therapy.

 

Hormone Optimization Therapy Benefits

 

HOT is effective at relieving various menopausal symptoms, including:

 

* Hot flashes and night sweats

* Vaginal dryness

* Aches and pains

* Insomnia and sleep disturbances

* Hair loss

* Reduced sex drive

 

HOT also helps lower your risk of developing diabetes if you take it around the time of menopause. It helps to prevent osteoporosis, preserve bone integrity, and reduce the chances of having a fracture.

 

Administration of Hormone Optimization Therapy

 

If you are undergoing HOT, you may receive estrogen in several forms, including pills, sprays, gels, and patches for the skin. But we have seen the best benefits in the form of pellets, which are inserted underneath the skin in order to bring about various benefits. Keep in mind that this therapy isn’t just useful for women. It can also be used by men who are experiencing hormone imbalances.

 

Setting Up Your Consultation

 

If you would like to receive more information about how hormone optimization therapy can alleviate the symptoms that you may be dealing with, please feel free to reach out to us at ProMD Health to schedule an initial consultation. We would be more than happy to evaluate your hormone levels and come up with a customized treatment plan that aims to address your levels and symptoms.
