Last week we provided a general review of what naturopathy is, with a promise to start a weekly highlight of reasons members seek consultations. First up: menopause and andropause. Decreasing hormone levels and the uncomfortable symptoms that go along with those changes are perhaps the top reason for visits to Dr. Amy. With a practice concentration in endocrinology and hormone health, she provides options for replacing hormones with bio-identical options, or can help you to find natural means for relief of symptoms if you don’t wish to pursue hormone options.
Bio-identical hormones are compounded hormones including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA that are prescribed to men and women, often around the time of menopause (women) or andropause (men). Meno- and andropause are natural occurrences that come with age, but for many, the symptoms that can come with these changes, including hot flashes, insomnia, lack of libido, fatigue, weight gain, and mood changes, are unbearable. Bio-identical hormone replacement can improve these symptoms and make life livable again. These are compounds very similar to naturally occurring hormones, prescribed in similar fashion to the way that your body produces hormones. Hormone levels can be tested, via saliva or serum (blood) to see if you are a good candidate for replacement.
