Transcript

  • 1. Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her menstrual periods permanently cease for a minimum of 6 consecutive months. This usually occurs around the age of 50. Menopause is caused by the cessation of function of the ovaries. There is no longer ovulation or hormone production. This is sometimes referred to as the “change of life.” Even though this is a normal part of the life cycle for women, the symptoms of hormonal decline can be significant. What is Menopause?
  • 2. A decline in a woman’s natural occurring progesterone and estrogen can cause a wide range of frustrating symptoms and side effects: Hot flashes Vaginal dryness Night sweats Sleepless nights Depression Reduced libido Loss of enjoyment of sex Bone loss At Hotze Health & Wellness Center, our goal is to help you resolve menopausal symptoms. Menopausal Symptoms Cancer Migraines Increased incidence of urinary incontinence (inability to control the bladder) Vaginal atrophy (weakness) Frequent urination
  • 3. Underlying Cause of Menopause The underlying cause of menopause is the inevitable decline of a woman’s hormones. Estrogen and progesterone levels both decline with age, but progesterone declines much more rapidly. By the time a woman reaches menopause, her progesterone level can be a mere 1/120th of the level she experienced in her early twenties. When a woman does not ovulate, her ovaries produce no progesterone at all. Estrogen levels also decline. This decline leads to the symptoms associated with peri- menopause and often prompts the search for menopause treatment. A woman’s postmenopausal estrogen level may remain at 40% of the level she experienced in early adulthood, because, while her ovaries no longer produce estrogen, her fat cells do. A woman’s ovaries also produce testosterone which peaks at ovulation. Testosterone production also ceases at menopause.
  • 4. Estrogen Dominance What is estrogen dominance? When a woman has a deficiency in progesterone, estrogen is the dominant hormone. Estrogen dominance often occurs before and after menopause, since the decline of hormones can begin in earlier years and quickly progresses after a woman enters menopause. There are many unfavorable side effects of estrogen dominance (lack of progesterone:) •Premenstrual headaches, often migraine in nature •Fluid retention •Fibrocystic breast disease •Uterine fibroids •Menorrhagia (heavy, painful menstrual periods) •Endometriosis •Clinical hypothyroidism •Bone loss Additionally, the incidence of breast cancer increases when women become estrogen dominant.
  • 5. Benefits of Bioidentical Progesterone Supplementation for Estrogen Dominance Progesterone: •Balances estrogen, thereby eliminating estrogen dominance •Enables body to properly utilize thyroid hormone •Reverses osteoporosis •Relieves fluid retention •Relieves migraines •Enhances mood and relieves depression or anxiety •Ameliorates breast tenderness •Alleviates fibrocystic breast disease •Relieves endometriosis •Enhances sleep •Increases libido •Precursor of other hormones •Protects against breast cancer and endometrial cancer
  • 6. Surgical menopause occurs when a woman undergoes a hysterectomy and oophorectomy (removal of the ovaries). All too often, physicians view this as the only option for dysfunctional uterine bleeding or fibroids. Unlike natural menopause, surgically induced menopause causes an immediate loss of progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone production, rather than the natural, gradual decline that occurs in these hormones over the years. As a result, a woman will feel a dramatic change in her body as she experiences the symptoms of rapid, hormonal decline. Even if the ovaries have been spared the surgeon’s knife, ovarian dysfunction or atrophy commonly occurs within two years following removal of the uterus, causing a predictable decline in hormone levels. This can occur even if you still have your ovaries in place, because the blood supply to the ovaries may be compromised by the removal of the uterus and fallopian tubes. Total Hysterectomy: No Real Solution
  • 7. Surgery: • Hysterectomy – According to the CDC, “Approximately 600,000 hysterectomies are performed annually in the United States and an estimated 20 million U.S. women have had a hysterectomy.” Synthetic or counterfeit “hormone” drugs: • Premarin - Even though this medication may be “natural” for pregnant mares (which is where it’s name is derived from), it contains hormones that are not biologically identical to those of what a woman produces and uses, making it a poor solution for women facing menopausal symptoms. • Prempro – Major studies, such as the Women’s Health Initiative in the United States and the Million Women Study in Great Britain, have documented that these drugs increase the risk of life-threatening ailments such as breast cancer, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism and Alzheimer’s disease. Prescription Drugs: • Antidepressants • Anti-anxiety None of these options resolve the underlying hormonal decline which causes menopausal symptoms. Additionally, they all have many adverse side effects. Conventional “Solutions” • Sleep medications • Bisphosphonates (class of bone loss drugs)
  • 8. Optimal Solution Since the underlying cause of menopause is a decline of the body’s natural occurring hormones, the best menopause treatment is to replenish your body with the same identical hormones that your ovaries used to make in adequate amounts. These are known as bio-identical hormones. Bio-identical hormones are molecularly identical to the hormones your body produces and uses. Below are biologically identical hormones often used to treat menopausal symptoms naturally, effectively and safely. • Bio-identical estrogen • Bio-identical progesterone • Bio-identical testosterone
