I hope that you all have been enjoying summer! Luckily it has cooled off a bit with the afternoon rains that we have been having here. But for those who are having a complicated change of life, even the smallest warming can trigger uncomfortable hot flash symptoms. While hot flashes are only one of a myriad of symptoms one may experience during the change of life, it is often the most talked about.
Other women may experience mood swings, weight gain, vaginal dryness, and other aches and pains that go along with the hormonal changes. And often so it goes, that the more complicated your hormonal health history (herstory?) the more complicated your menopause will also be.
This newsletter is dedicated to menopausal strategies from a naturopathic medical perspective. While there is no one size fits all solution for every woman, because we are unique beings, naturopathic medicine takes an individualized approach to help you make the wisest decision for yourself and your individual needs for your menopausal support. Genetic testing is available to assess risk of cancer, osteoporosis, and blood clotting issues which can further aid in your decision making process. Functional hormonal testing is also available to fine tune a protocol that is specific to your body chemistry. The information contained in this newsletter is just the tip of the iceberg and I would love to be able to answer any questions that may come up regarding your personal hormone balancing needs. Enjoy the read and have a great rest of your summer!
I have been offering naturopathic healthcare to Boulder individuals and families since 1993!
