Perimenopause & Menopause Care

For a woman, the transition into the perimenopausal and menopausal seasons of life can often feel like uncharted territory as we learn to listen to our bodies in new and deeper ways.  While it may take some adjusting and adapting, there is no reason we can’t expect to feel energized, sexy, lean, patient, loving, and excited about the years ahead.

Common complaints experienced by woman transitioning into the perimenopausal and menopausal years:

  • Anxiety/Irritability
  • Decreased stress tolerance
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Poor memory & concentration
  • Hot flashes and/or night sweats
  • Breast changes
  • Decreased libido
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal pain or dryness
  • Vestibulitis or Vulvadynia
  • Weight gain

Services include:

  • Blood and urine testing to assess for proper nutrient status, and hormone (e.g., progesterone, testosterone) and neurotransmitter (e.g., seratonin, GABA) balance
  • Individualized treatment using a combination of botanical herbs, nutritional supplements, acupuncture, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (bHRT)
    Note: a bioidentical hormone is made from a natural source (i.e., plant) and is identical to the endogenous hormones produced by the human body
  • Information, assessment, and therapeutic options for maintaining breast and heart health, and for diabetes and osteoporosis prevention
  • Comprehensive and individualized weight loss programs to meet your immediate and long-term goals
