Menopause is a natural biological process that happens in women and her hormone levels, specifically estrogen, progesterone and testosterone decline. The transition to menopause can take several years for women everywhere including in Omaha, NE, and the symptoms associated with it can vary greatly from woman to woman.
Symptoms of menopause can include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood changes, and difficulty sleeping. These symptoms are caused by the decrease in estrogen levels and can last for several years. Some women experience more severe symptoms than others, and the duration of symptoms can vary as well. Other symptoms are low libido and loss of muscle mass caused by the decrease of testosterone. And the reduced level of progesterone can cause loss of sleep and mood swings just to name a few!
While menopause is a natural part of the aging process, it can be challenging for many women to navigate. It can also have an impact on a woman’s overall health. Estrogen plays a role in bone health, and the decline in estrogen levels can lead to an increased risk of osteoporosis. Women also have an increased risk of heart disease after menopause. Testosterone plays a role in sex drive, muscle mass, energy and mood and progesterone plays a role irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, and bloating. So all 3 of these hormones are important for females to keep healthy even through menopause.
There are several treatment options available for women experiencing menopausal symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy (NHT) is one option that involves taking estrogen, testosterone and progesterone to replace the hormones that are no longer being produced by the ovaries. NHT can help alleviate symptoms.
Non-hormonal treatments are also available for menopausal symptoms. These include lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and managing stress. There are also NLRX Nutrition Supplements & compounding formulations from New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy available that can help with specific symptoms, such as Stress Reset for mood changes and low-dose vaginal estrogen for vaginal dryness.
It’s essential for women to talk to the provider at New Leaf Wellness about their symptoms and treatment options. Each woman’s experience with menopause is unique, and treatment should be tailored to her individual needs and health history.
In conclusion, menopause is a natural part of the aging process for women. While it can be challenging to navigate, there are treatment options available to alleviate symptoms and reduce the risk of health complications. Women should talk to their provider at New Leaf Wellness, Omaha, NE and the other New Leaf Wellness clinics about their options and develop a plan that is right for them.
