Earlier hormone therapy may shorten menopause symptoms

I’ve treated thousands of women going through the “change of life” — and lots of them had the same exact problem.

They waited for too much “change” to happen before they finally came to me for help.

They spent months — sometimes longer — suffering through night sweats, mood swings, loss of sex drive, and skin-scorching hot flushes before they got desperate enough to seek treatment.

If that sounds like you, it’s time to take action.

The physical symptoms you’re feeling are your body crying out for the hormones it’s losing. And replacing them as soon as possible won’t just have you feeling better quickly — it could actually save your life.

In fact, Swedish researchers have found that women who started hormone therapy toward the beginning of menopause had a much lower risk of developing heart disease.

For their study, presented last month at the annual meeting of the North American Menopause Society, researchers reviewed records of nearly 75,000 women over a 23-year period.

It turns out that women who began hormone replacement within the first five years of menopause remained free of heart disease nearly a year and a half longer.

That’s right — it’s as if their hearts were a full year and a half younger. And many never developed heart disease at all.

Plus, the research didn’t even take into account the ways that hormone replacement can protect your brain and even shield your bones from osteoporosis.

Now, before you run out and get hormone replacement, you need to know that not all treatments are created equal.

Some of the mainstream synthetic junk is derived from horse urine and may include very large dosages.

That’s why I recommend bio-identical hormone therapy for getting your oestrogen and other hormone levels back up to where they should be. Bio-identical hormone therapy closely copies nature by using natural molecules already found in your body, and in concentrations that your system would normally produce.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy should be tailored to fit your age and medical history. And, of course, you should always consult a doctor skilled in natural medicine before beginning any kind of therapy.

Wishing you the best of health,
