Menopause, is it inevitable that you will suffer and feel awful in this process? Does it affect men as well as women? Our clinic approaches this as an alterable process that can be dramatically improved, if you choose. This is a question about quality of life. It also affects men, commonly referred to as andropause. Though it is unlikely they will admit anything is wrong until it’s almost impossible for them to move anymore.
There is nothing more effective than bio-identical hormone replacement, especially when started early in the process. The question always arises, does it significantly increase cancer? This question should be answered by each individual with an in depth education and, in our opinion, a trial of bio-identical hormone replacement so you can assess the quality of life difference. Remember, this typically is a question about quality of life.
In our clinic, we commonly address hormone imbalances or deficiencies of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, thyroid, insulin and vitamin D. We also assess for other complicating factors, which are often present as well. These are commonly chronic infections, nutrient deficiencies or imbalances, and other metabolic problems.
