Have you been feeling tired, sluggish, more aches and pains? Is it the dreaded Menopause in Scottsdale, AZ? It might just be. What exactly is Menopause in Scottsdale, AZ, and why can it cause more symptoms than just the loss of our monthly menses?
Menopause in Scottsdale, AZ, simply put, is the decline in hormones that occurs as we get older, usually occurring in the 4th and 5th decade of life. One researcher has posed the question: do our hormones decline because we age, or do we age because our hormones decline? Hormones are responsible for regulating all body functions-metabolism (including brain metabolism), immune function, reproductive function. When women’s hormones decline, they get hot flashes, night sweats, depression and/or mood swings, difficulty with concentration and/or memory lapses, dry eyes and skin, muscle and bone aches and pains, fatigue and low energy, vaginal dryness and increases in urinary tract infections. What’s worse is that these symptoms do not ever completely go away. It was once thought that Menopause was something that women “go through”, but the fact is that some of these more noticeable symptoms (i.e. hot flashes, night sweats) may be worse as hormone levels are rapidly declining but they never truly leave once the levels fall below a certain point.
The best way to age well and overcome Menopause symptoms are to replace the declining hormones. Bioidentical Hormones are the superior option for treatment. Bioidentical Hormones are natural, not synthetic. They are also individually dosed, unlike conventional hormone therapies. That way you get what your body needs and nothing more.
