If you’re not getting relief from unpleasant symptoms, try the non-synthetic hormone -Bioidenticals.
By Colleen Kupka, R.N.
There are many wonderful things about growing older, gaining self-awareness, wisdom – and many of us discover new ways of approaching our future in midlife. A mature woman may experience a level of peace and self-acceptance that wasn’t available in her younger years.
But, during a certain age of a woman’s life, she may also experience unpleasant symptoms as part of her aging process. During this time, the hormone levels in her body are naturally adjusting to accommodate the post-child-bearing years and the imbalance can create unpleasant physical reactions.
For some, this transition may be accompanied by symptoms that could range from mildly uncomfortable to unbearable, such as:
- Insomnia or interrupted sleep
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Hair loss
- Weight gain
If you’ve found that these symptoms are with you no matter what you do, you are not alone. It’s estimated that as many as 75 percent of women who are premenopausal experience symptoms, and the most prevalent symptom is hot flashes.
Natural BHRT at Scottsdale Vanity Med Spa can help relieve mid-life symptoms
If you are a woman who is experiencing any of these symptoms or a combination of symptoms, consult a health care provider and ask for a hormone panel screen. If your hormonal imbalance is the result, it’s a good idea to speak with a physician who has worked with natural HRT in Scottsdale to determine if they can work for you. Our business, Scottsdale Vanity Med Spa can help you.
Why Natural BHRT at Scottsdale Vanity Med Spa versus traditional HRT?
There are a lot of reasons, but here are my favorite two reasons to use natural progesterone–
There’s no known cancer risk…
It’s been well-documented that synthetic estrogen, a traditional form of HRT that’s commonly prescribed for premenopausal and menopausal women, has been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer. There is no known increase in cancer risk when using natural HRT, if anything evidence is stacking up in that it may decrease your risk of cancer, bone loss, cardiovascular disease.
Convenient delivery forms…
Taking hormones orally means they enter your body through your digestive track and are filtered through the liver. This process can dilute the strength of the hormone by excreting some of it during the filtering process before the hormone hits the bloodstream.
There are delivery systems that bypass the digestive system and liver, so the body receives the full benefit of the natural HRT. One of those systems is creams or oils. Directly applying creams or oils to skin will allow natural HRT to absorb directly into the bloodstream, but it’s difficult to establish a set dose of the hormone.
What is the best form of natural BHRT?
We work with compounding pharmacies to create a form of natural HRT at Scottsdale Vanity Med Spa that absorbs quickly in a consistent dose. To us, the ideal form is a fast-absorbing lozenge, which allows more of the beneficial hormone to absorb into the bloodstream to help your body return to symptom-free balance.
When you choose to give natural BHRT at Scottsdale Vanity a try, you may experience these benefits:
- Improved sleep
- Natural calming effect
- Lowers blood pressure
- Lowers cholesterol
- Increased hair on scalp
- Antidepressant effect
- Reduces inflammation in the body
- Stimulates bone production
Information about progesterone and hysterectomies
When it comes to progesterone, If you are a woman who has had a full or partial hysterectomy and a physician told you that progesterone will not help ease your symptoms, please seek a second opinion. Natural progesterone may be the answer, but don’t embark on a natural HRT plan in Scottsdale without having a health care provider review the results of your hormone panel and provide recommendations.
I understand your pain…
Even though I’m a woman who has always worked in health care, last year I was experiencing rapid, stubborn weight gain. I felt like my body was sabotaging me because even stepping up my exercise and cutting back on portions didn’t help slow down the weight gain at all.
I finally had Dr. Tom Kupka – my partner in life and in Scottsdale Vanity Med Spa – run a hormone panel. When the results came back, we discovered I was out of balance. We worked together to create a natural hormone treatment plan to help me lose the stubborn fat. Now, my exercise and portion control are paying off and I’ve taken off more than 20 pounds! My skinny jeans and wedding dress both fit now!
Of course, I’m going to suggest that you come to Scottsdale Vanity Med Spa to find out whether you need natural progesterone. I believe in empowering women with information, and will not only help you overcome these unpleasant symptoms but, I will also provide information that will help keep you healthy and energetic for the long run.
Of course, if you decide not to come to Scottsdale Mobile Med Spa, please see your own physician if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms I’ve discussed in the article. When you’re discussing treatment plans, don’t forget to ask whether natural progesterone will help you.
