Want to know more about Menopause?

  1. 1. Menopause by itself is not a Health Condition<br /><ul><li>Menopause is normal process that every woman goes through.
  2. 2. A healthy woman, when approaching Menopause does not experience menopausal symptoms. The transition should be smooth and easy.</li></li></ul><li>Yet more and more woman experience Menopause as … <br />A serious health problem<br /><ul><li>With debilitating symptoms
  3. 3. With a radical decrease of life quality
  4. 4. And a number of symptoms that persist even years after menopause </li></li></ul><li>Conditions that Increase in Risk with Perimenopause and Menopause<br /><ul><li>CardiovascularDisease and Stroke
  5. 5. Osteoporosis
  6. 6. Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
  7. 7. Arthritis
  8. 8. Autoimmune Disease</li></li></ul><li>Bottom Line:<br />There is a tremendous decline of body functions all of the sudden bombarding you<br />Without proper treatment you are at risk for a number of very serious health conditions<br />Treatments available are partial and not always effective<br />
  9. 9. Here is what will happen in terms of physical decline if the condition is left alone::<br />
  10. 10. Health During A Woman’s Life<br />
  11. 11. Are you experiencing some of this?<br />Hot flashes<br />Vaginal dryness<br />Changes in skin tone<br />Depression<br />Poor concentration and memory<br />Irregular periods<br />Hair loss and thinning<br />Pain and inflammation<br />Weight gain<br />Decreased memory and cognitive function<br />Dysglycemia<br />
  12. 12. Typical Management of Menopause<br />
  13. 13. Changes in pro-inflammatory activity after menopause<br />There is now a large body of evidence suggesting that thedecline in ovarian function with menopause is associated with spontaneous increases in pro-inflammatory cytokines.<br />
  14. 14. This means if you are in or after menopause and you are/were experiencing some or many of the typical menopause symptoms,<br /> you are likely to have major chronic inflammatory processes going on in your body<br />
  15. 15. This is a huge factor for an increased rate of all those conditions in menopausal women:<br /><ul><li>Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke
  16. 16. Osteoporosis
  17. 17. Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
  18. 18. Arthritis
  19. 19. Autoimmune Disease</li></li></ul><li>Why do some women have a smoother process than others?<br />When the female hormone production starts to fluctuate the adrenal system is supposed to take over.<br />The adrenal gland produces a hormone (androstenedione) that gets converted to estrogen in the fatty tissues<br />If the adrenal system is strong, it compensates the loss of estrogen and the transition is smooth<br />
  20. 20. What if the Adrenals are weak?<br />There is no compensation for estrogen loss<br /> this will lead to hormone fluctuations in the body<br />all the typical symptoms will occur.<br />
  21. 21. And here they are:<br />Hot flashes<br />Vaginal dryness<br />Changes in skin tone<br />Depression<br />Poor concentration and memory<br />Irregular periods<br />Hair loss and thinning<br />Pain and inflammation<br />Weight gain<br />Decreased memory and cognitive function<br />Dysglycemia<br />
  22. 22. In addition potentially devastating mechanisms are getting activated:<br />There is a number offactors that cause systemic inflammation in Perimenopause<br />Those factors potentiate each other and have devastating effects on cell aging and tissue breakdown<br />Hormone replacement is not addressing those mechanisms since they stay active once triggered<br />
  23. 23. First Mechanism:<br />If there is a decline in Estrogen levels (specifically estradiol) infemale patients in perimenopause, the inflammatory cytokine system is up-regulated and may stay up-regulated EVEN AFTER ESTROGEN LEVELS ARE RESTORED.<br />Depending on pre-existing inflamed areas in the body this up-regulation will determine which systems are most impacted by this process.<br />
  24. 24. Pre-exisitng Activity? What’s effected?<br />Immune activation (which can lead to autoimmune diseases)<br />Neuro-inflammation (which can lead to dementia, and many other neurological conditions)<br />Free Radicals (increased cancer risk)<br />Higher stress response (individual loses ability to cope with stress)<br />Body fat (produces inflammatory agents)<br />
  25. 25. Another Disturbing Mechanism<br /> Ever wondered why you are so cranky or bitchy? It’s not your fault! Here is what happens:<br />There is a part of the brain that is responsible for having all those overly emotional reactions. It’s called the Mesolimbic System.<br />Guess what: that system get’s heavily activated by those processes!<br />So you really just can’t help it! What needs to be fixed is the physical environment<br />
  26. 26. And there is more…<br />The immune reactions that are happening also cause:<br />Tissue destruction (thus the bone loss)<br />Decreased blood flow (higher cardio vascular risk)<br />Decreased synapses (that leads to brain fog, neurological conditions etc)<br />
  27. 27. Here is the bad News<br />None of those conditions can be successfully treated just with hormone replacement<br />Once those things start happening in your body, they pretty much won’t stop by themselves<br />Without help the body deteriorates and degenerates at an alarming rate<br />
  28. 28. And here is the good news:<br />We actually have ways to help<br />We didn’t invent them, and they exist thanks to amazing neurological and endocrinological research that has been done over the last years<br />Sadly very few are practicing this particular kind of medicine so far<br />It revolutionizes the way we are able to help in those conditions<br />
  29. 29. What’s so different?<br />We work mostly with nutritional supplements and herbs, as well as life style changes and diet<br />The supplements we use are high end and are way beyond what’s typically sold on the market<br />The formulas we use are very fine tuned and especially aimed to your individual medical need<br />We carefully monitor and manage the process <br />We use extremely thorough examinations to determine the right course of supplementation on an individual basis<br />We take the liberty to switch supplements during the process to ensure the right course of treatment<br />
  30. 30. What this does:<br />We frequently achieve dramatic results between the first and third month of treatment<br />We are able to stop destructive mechanisms in the body that have been on autopilot for many years<br />We achieve higher and lasting life quality for our patients<br />There are no signs of dependency with the products we use.<br />
  31. 31. We use only natural products that are intended to restore health, not manipulate the body in unethical ways like for example some weight loss products do<br />We do not use prescription drugs and pharmaceuticals<br />Our products are of the highest quality and once balance in the body is restored, we discontinue treatment.<br />Our goal is to get you out of our care as fast as possible<br />
  32. 32. We can help:<br />Women who are approaching menopause and want a healthy process without symptoms. We prepare your body so you can have a smooth transition<br />Women who are going through menopause<br />Woman after their menopause, who are still experiencing symptoms and haven’t recovered fully and just feel like they haven’t been the same since they entered menopause<br />
