Menopause

We know that menopause is simply a life-transition, but sometimes it can feel like an illness; it can have major implications on a woman’s health and wellbeing. The most obvious symptoms are hot flashes and night sweats, irritability, anxiety, and often time the need to urinate more frequently. Common medical treatments include hormone therapy, vaginal estrogen, antidepressants, Neurontin (Gabapentin), and osteoporosis medications. These treatments, however, come with a wide variety of undesirable risks.

In addition to your treatments it is necessary to discuss important dietary and lifestyle factors to further promote optimal health and longevity.
