Perimenopause +
Menopause

"The Change" is the stage of life many women have long dreaded and never discuss. Symptoms often begin in the late 30's and early 40's, leaving women confused by their own bodies. Much like puberty, perimenopause (the time of transition in fertility that can last 10+ yrs) is a time women often ask themselves, "Is this normal??". The standard offerings of birth control or anti-depressants do not come close to addressing the root issues and often can make things worse!

Female Friends

Our patients come to us for perimenopause and menopause symptoms when they have experienced the rollercoaster of fluctuating hormones or feeling sluggish, anxious/depressed, bloated, gaining weight, feeling "out of synch" or experiencing symptoms they suspect are hormone-related. Often, they are struggling with sleep issues, weird periods (irregular or heavy/painful), acne, weight gain, moodiness, mental fogginess and don't feel like they are as energetic or "balanced" the way they used to be. Perimenopause and menopause are often times when we see thyroid dysfunction flare up, as well. They come to us when they're told "everything looks normal", yet they continue to feel like junk. It prevents them from having the energy, mental/emotional stability and hormonal balance they seek. It holds them back from showing up in life the way they want to or have in the past. 

It's generally when they realize they've been spending more and more time feeling like they're going through the day irritable, sleep-deprived, soaking through period products or worried something is majorly wrong and Googling “how to heal XYZ…” that they decide it's time for some professional help.

 

If you're ready to get back to feeling like you, having energy, mental clarity and feeling like your body is working properly, we're here to help you figure out if it's your hormones and the best approach to healing.
