Sexy Happy and Healthy during Menopause

By February 1, 2021November 2nd, 2021No Comments

Hot flashes. PMS. Low libido. Fatigue. Vaginal dryness. Mood swings. Trouble sleeping. Brain fog…. Uhh! Going through perimenopause (menopause transition) can feel like torture.

Nobody likes to talk about the big M. I understand. It reminds us we’re all getting old. But we can’t escape the fact that it happens to every one of us. For most women, it tends to hit close to mid to late 40s.  The average age for menopause is 51 plus or minus three years. But many women start seeing symptoms of perimenopause as early as their 30s. What’s perimenopause? It’s the transition period into menopause that can last anywhere from 5 to 12 years. No joke. That’s a period when your hormones can go haywire, causing all those symptoms that make your life miserable.

In other words, hormone imbalance is the REAL cause of ALL symptoms of perimenopause and menopause.

That might sound like common sense. But you’d be shocked by how some women are treated for menopausal symptoms instead of addressing the root of the problem.

For example, if you’re feeling anxious because of hormone imbalance, you will most likely be prescribed an anti-anxiety or anti-depressant pill. Can’t sleep? The solution will probably be Ambien by some providers. You get the point. Your healthcare provider will likely try to push some pill down your throat that will never solve the real issue.

Many other doctors will just tell you these symptoms are just part of getting older. So if you’ve heard from your doctor something like “that’s normal for your age,” you’re not alone.

In fact, that’s exactly what happened to one of my patients. When Patricia came to see me, she told me she didn’t feel like her normal self anymore. She felt like she was going through a crisis and that she was surprised her husband hadn’t left her yet. And yet, her primary healthcare provider  told her “that’s normal for your age.”

I almost cried when she told me that… because I know Patricia is not alone. There are millions of women who are being mistreated when it comes to their menopausal symptoms. Don’t get me wrong. Most of these doctors are well-meaning. But they just don’t teach this kind of stuff in medical school or residency. Instead, they’re brainwashed into prescribing pills.

Well, let me tell you… you should NOT accept “normal for your age.” What if you could make it “normal” for you to get better each year? You’d have the energy and vitality you had when you were 20, that’s what.  I help my patients change their mindset and shoot for optimal health and vitality.

Is that even possible? Yes, it is. And I’m living proof. You see, I’m 50 plus years old. So I can tell you I already went through the menopause transition period and now I’m living it, menopause isn’t something that you go through and you’re done, you are now Menopausal and everything changes. And I’m loving my 50’s!

Like all women in their 40s, I also experienced some of the symptoms. A few years ago, for example, I found myself turning the washing machine on…. Before loading any clothes in. Talk about brain fog! I thought I was losing my mind.

I shared that story with my mother and she thought maybe I was just working too hard. Being a doctor and having two teenage daughters is more than a full-time job.  So I thought my mom might be right.

But when the night sweats started interrupting my sleep, I knew that there was something else going on. Lord knows I love to sleep, and I’ve never had a problem falling asleep before… even when I had a cup of coffee right before going to bed. So when I couldn’t get a full night of zzzzs, I decided to get my hormone levels tested.

The results didn’t really shock me. Like most women in their 40s, my progesterone levels were not optimal. Which is totally “normal.” Remember, your hormones decline as you age. But you do NOT have to settle for “normal.” 

I didn’t. You see, you can keep your hormones at the optimal level with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). I’m talking about bioidentical hormones. I started with natural progesterone. And more recently I added testosterone pellets. Boy, that was a game-changer.  I feel like I’m 20 again! Shhhh… don’t tell anyone. My guy has no idea I use pellets.  He just thinks I’m special. (Don’t worry, I’ll talk more about this exciting treatment later.

 

A better sex life was just the beginning. My brain fog went away as well. And I feel incredible. I only wish I had more hours in the day and wish every woman could feel this good. In fact, I offer BHRT to my patients at my clinic. And the results so far have been incredible. Just listen to some of the emails I have received from my patients…

Patty, a 46-year old woman with two children, says:

“I never felt better since knowing my levels and having my hormones balanced.  I have so much energy now and sleep like a baby since starting bioidentical hormones.”

Another one of my patients, Janet, 52, says: “I felt relief within two weeks of starting the therapy and now I’m able to enjoy my family again.”

“I wish I knew sooner how good I could feel.  Just knowing that my hormones were low was the validation I needed to know that I wasn’t just falling apart.”

And Sheila, 55, says: “After my divorce, I thought I would just work and return to an empty house because I never had the energy to do anything.  Now I’m dating again. And he loves all the energy I have and so do I.”

 

Balancing hormones has changed the lives of many of my patients. That’s just a tiny sample of the countless testimonials I have received. Maybe by now you’re asking…

“How Can I Get Started with BHRT?” bioidentical hormone replacement

I’ll answer with five words that will change your life…

Get your hormone levels tested!

Unlike many doctors who are all too happy to just write another prescription because it’s quick and easy, I like to get to the root of the matter. That’s why I offer advanced hormone testing  Without knowing and balancing your hormones level, you may never get to your optimal self. 

Your blueprint to discovering your new life in balance begins with testing. And it couldn’t be easier. You can test your hormones level from the comfort of your home with a saliva test. Researchers have found that the liquid in your saliva showcases the free form of the body’s hormones at both the cellular and tissue levels.

The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine also finds the saliva method is more accurate than blood tests when it comes to hormone levels. And it can show you your levels of estrogen, testosterone, progesterone cortisol and DHEA-S.

I recommend saliva tests from ZRT labs. Their reports include customized comments specific to your lab results. That will help you and your doctor find out what hormones you need to replace the most. You can find more information at www.(my hormone sales page)

Once you know your levels, you’ll be ready to get started. You see, your hormones are specific to you. And your treatment must be customized…made only for you. That’s why it’s important to work with a doctor who understands hormonal imbalance.

If your doctor is telling you “that’s normal and there’s nothing you can do”… well, I’m sorry but he/she is not really providing the solution you deserve.

Keep in mind… I’m talking about bioidentical hormones that have an identical chemical structure to your own hormones. They’re 100% natural. And they’re 100% safe.

A recent report published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology showed that Hormone Replacement Therapy does NOT affect the risk of death from all causes, including cardiac death, stroke, or cancer. So if you’re wondering if this is safe, you have nothing to worry about. Like I said, I’m personally doing this. And I put my own mother on BHRT. Do you think I would risk my life and my mother’s life? Of course not.

Look, we’re all living longer. The average life expectancy for women is 85 years, according to the US Census Bureau.  That means one-third of your life could be spent in or after menopause. 

And if you’re like me, you’re not ready to give it all up when life is just getting started.  You have worked hard your entire life… you have raised your children and now you want to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

If your hormones are out of balance, I doubt you’ll be able to enjoy much of anything. Because you’ll feel miserable most of the time. I’ve had patients tell me they wouldn’t care if they had to rub a whole yam on her body because she felt absolutely miserable without balanced hormones.  Others feel that once menopause hits, the aging process accelerates.  Many women also complain of lack of energy, skin changes, low sex drive, and inability to lose weight.

You owe it to yourself to feel your ultimate best and be the sexy, happy, and healthy woman you DESERVE to be. Feel ageless during your menopause and perimenopause. In addition to BHRT, I’ll be recommending other natural treatments and lifestyle interventions that can help you balance your hormones. Scheduled your hormone consultation.
