The joys of menopause then and now!
It has been many years since I went through those uncomfortable years of hot flashes and trying every supplement that was supposed to help. I changed doctors to a female gynecologist thinking she surely would know how to help me. That was over twenty-five years ago. She was not helpful either, but suggested HRT and Synthroid which I started to use daily. Seven years later I learned there was another way. I learned about progesterone cream and started with that. From all the studies I learned it was a safe and effective way to deal with hormones. I remember I left all the HRT pills on my doctor’s desk and walked out of his office.
Oh yes, after I quite taking HRT cold turkey, two months later I experienced horrendous hot flashes again. I still did not have the answer! My body realized something was missing!! Along the way I worked with a certified board nutritionist, who was also my chiropractor. He helped me get saliva testing to find out about all the hormone levels, estrogen, testosterone, estradiol, and cortisol… I learned it was important to know all the levels to help get them in balance, so they work properly. I trusted my chiropractor and had good results.
Today there is so much more information about bioidentical hormones. Studies show that Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is safe and effective. Hormonal imbalance can happen at any age. The best way to monitor your hormone levels is with saliva testing.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) are topical creams and homeopathic remedies which gently stimulate your body’s unique hormone balance and give you relief and peace of mind with no side effects.
Take time to work with your natural health provider and learn about options for saliva testing and BHRT. You will be happy you took the time to learn and take care of you. It’s important to make lifestyle changes to help your body naturally come into balance, to have a strong immune system. Consider following the 9 simple steps to Natural Breast Health.
