The approach of menopause often brings unpleasant symptoms such as
changes in your period (time between periods may fluctuate and flow may change)
thinning bones and bone loss
vaginal dryness and painful sex
hot flashes (warm flushing of face, neck, and chest with or without sweating)
night sweats (the nighttime version of hot flashes, which may disrupt sleep and cause tension or anxiety)
These symptoms vary from individual to individual and are caused by decreasing levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Women who are bothered by one or more of these symptoms can use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to alleviate them. HRT medications may use estrogen only or estrogen with progestin (for women whose menopause was not caused by surgical removal of the uterus).
There are basically two choices for HRT:
HRT with synthetic hormones
HRT using bioidentical (natural) hormones
Natural hormones are identical in composition to those produced naturally in a woman’s body and are formulated with plant materials such as yams and soy. These bioidentical or natural hormones will be used by the body just as it used the hormones that it naturally produced prior to the onset of menopause. HRT with natural hormones will restore bone density and greatly reduce the risk of Osteoporosis, relieve hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness, and even offer additional benefits such as a reduced risk of depression, better sleep, improved muscles mass, and even a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
