Menopause is the decrease, over time, of female hormone levels.
Estrogen is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Estrogen is one group of sex hormones (or steroids) naturally produced by the body. The three major, naturally occurring Estrogens are: Estrodiol, Estriol, and Estrone.
Sex hormones are all inter-related, requiring continuous fine-tuning to maintain the body’s natural rhythm. Changes with one hormone effect other hormones, thus requiring management of all of them. Balancing one will unbalance another, the whole process can take weeks or months before enough information is available on your body’s needs and reactions to properly balance your levels.
Hormones also follow several natural cycles. Your treatment must match with your body’s cycles.
Finally, your requirements will also change over time. This is not meant to scare you, but to give you an appreciation of the scope of the treatment, so you are prepared for the time commitment this will require. When you are ready, we are here to help you. The rewards are well worth the effort.
