The importance of hormone balance shows up especially at menopause. Our hormones all work together so if one is altered or deficient, it affects all the others. We don’t want them playing out of tune.
Every woman has a unique hormone response at menopause and so hormone replacement needs to be individually customised for each person. At Evergreen Doctors we recognise this and use a holistic, personalised, Functional Medicine approach to get the best results.
The symptoms of menopause include hot flushes,night sweats, vaginal dryness, anxiety, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, weight gain, loss of sexual interest, facial hair, heart palpitations, dizziness, varicose veins, urinary leakage and many more. Everyone has a different experience and therefore we consider each patient individually.
In Functional Medicine we consider HRT because it relieves the symptoms of menopause, protects against memory loss, helps to keep the heart healthy, aids in bone reproduction, and promotes growth and repair. Insulin, Growth hormone, the oestrogens and DHEA are all hormones of growth and repair. We recommend the bio-identical hormones as theses are chemically identical to the hormones produced by our bodies.
