What is the best treatment for menopause?

In recent years, women have turned to natural methods of treating Menopause. Most often, it is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Menopause. BHRT alleviates the symptoms of Menopause and restores your natural balance of hormones. There are many benefits of Menopause Therapy in Los Angeles. Next, we are going to explore the common symptoms you might be experiencing and how hormone replacement therapy Los Angeles can help with the treatment of menopause.

Our hormone clinic specializes in the treatment for menopause. Menopause is a natural condition a woman experiences after menstruation ceases. It marks the final point of reproductive availability.

 

In short, women are born with a specific, finite number of eggs. They get stored in the ovaries and released for fertilization. If unfertilized, it marks the beginning of menstruation. Ovaries are responsible for producing hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. This helps along the process resulting in a menstrual period or reproductive success.

Natural Menopause occurs when the ovaries stop releasing eggs. And the ovaries finish creating estrogen. Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone. It handles the development and regulation of the female reproductive system. As well as secondary sex characteristics. In the years leading up to Menopause, a woman will experience the following side effects. These are a result of reduced estrogen production, including:

Hot flashes
• Insomnia
• Irritability
Mood swings
• Fatigue
• Headaches
• Joint pain

Is There A Cure For Menopause?

Every person experiences symptoms of menopause differently, and the timing of when symptoms begin and end will vary from woman to woman. Some women experience a gradual decline in hormones over time, while others experience a more abrupt transition. For some women, the symptoms may disappear completely after menopause. For others, symptoms may persist for months or even years after menopause has officially ended. There is not currently a cure for menopause; however, many women find relief from the symptoms by addressing their diet, exercise, supplements, and other lifestyle changes.

Menopause Hormone Treatment Options: Injections, Creams, Pills & Gels

Natural hormone treatment happens in many forms. Injections, creams, gels, transdermal application, and oral supplements, to name a few. They all allow the body to replenish hormones. To be specific, the hormones are lost during menopause, perimenopausal and postmenopausal state. These treatments help with the side effects of estrogen loss. The benefits of menopause therapy are many. They address the following medical conditions:

 

  1. Low bone density

Hormone Therapy

Progestin-Only Medicines: Prometrium (Pill), Provera (Pill).

Low-Dose Antidepressants

Research suggests that particular selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) could be useful in reducing menopausal hot flashes. Low-dose SSRIs may be particularly beneficial for women unable to take estrogen due to existing health conditions or those with a mood disorder who require an antidepressant. Over-the-counter medicines like Brisdelle, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, and Prozac can help alleviate the symptoms of menopause.

Vaginal Estrogen Therapy

Estrogen therapy may be used to treat vaginal dryness, which is commonly associated with menopause. This type of therapy is delivered directly to the vagina through a cream, tablet, or vaginal ring. It releases only a minimal amount of estrogen, which is absorbed by the vaginal tissues, helping to alleviate any discomfort associated with intercourse and other urinary symptoms.

Gabapentin

Gabapentin has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to treat seizures, and recent research has indicated that it may also be effective in reducing hot flashes in women who cannot use estrogen therapy or who experience nighttime hot flashes. Medicines like Neurontin, Gralise, and Horizant can be helpful for some women.

Clonidine

Clonidine medicines (Catapres and Kapvay) can also relieve menopausal symptoms. It’s usually found in pill or patch form to treat high blood pressure and relieve hot flashes.

How Do Antidepressants Help Menopause?

Antidepressant is thought to provide relief from hot flashes and night sweats and tackle mood changes in women.

 

The exact physiological mechanism that contributes to the efficacy of antidepressants remains unknown. However, research has shown that estrogen depletion during menopause is linked to a decrease in endorphin levels. Endorphins are neurotransmitters known for their ability to reduce stress, regulate emotions such as happiness and euphoria, and provide pain relief.

 

The decline of estrogen levels during menopause can have a direct effect on the production of endorphins, resulting in a significant alteration of the body’s temperature set point. This often leads to an overreaction from the body when the internal thermostat is thrown off-balance, resulting in hot flashes or night sweats.

 

Research has suggested that women with pre-existing depression, alongside hot flashes and night sweats, may experience improvement in their symptoms if treated with antidepressants. Such treatment has been linked to reduced frequency of hot flashes, as well as an enhanced capacity to cope with their corresponding mood and depressive symptoms.

Women Are Looking For Answers To Menopause Hormone Treatment

If you are thinking about hormone replacement therapy, you’re not alone. Women everywhere are looking for answers. When they can’t find them, they look to their gynecologists for help. As of 2019, there are an estimated 78 million baby boomers. Over 47 million of them are women experiencing discomfort from menstruation to Menopause. They all suffer the loss of libido and much more.

 

We are more accustomed to talking about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Especially in the treatment of Menopause and anti-aging. Bioidentical hormone products are derived from natural sources of plant hormones. These hormones match the chemical structure of those produced by the human body. The premise is our body can’t distinguish the difference.  Also, that is, from the hormones your ovaries already produce on their own.

What Is Different About Bioidentical Hormone Therapy For Menopause?

The term bioidentical has become a catch-all phrase for anything that is not a synthetic hormone. But, these are only bioidentical when mimicking the biological process, too. There are undulating or wavelike rhythms of the hormone levels in a menstrual cycle. Bioidentical hormones mimic this cycle in a healthy young woman. It is this natural rhythm that is missing from synthetic hormone replacement therapies.

How Do You Treat Menopause Without Medicine?

Cool hot flashes: Women experiencing hot flashes may want to consider dressing in multiple layers, drinking a cold glass of water, or moving to a cooler environment. It is important to identify potential triggers of these episodes, which may include hot beverages, caffeine, spicy foods, alcohol, stress, hot weather, and even warmer temperatures in a room.

 

Get enough sleep: It is advised to limit caffeine intake as it can reduce sleep quality. Additionally, drinking too much alcohol should be avoided as it can disrupt sleep. To ensure restful sleep, exercise during the day but not in the immediate hours leading up to bedtime. If hot flashes cause interference with rest, it is wise to consider management methods prior to attempting to fall asleep.

 

Exercise regularly: Regular physical activity on most days is recommended in order to reduce the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other age-related conditions.

 

Plant estrogens (phytoestrogens): Two main types of phytoestrogens exist: isoflavones and lignans. Isoflavones are found in a variety of items, such as soybeans, lentils, chickpeas, and other legumes. Lignans, on the other hand, occur in flaxseed, whole grains, as well as some fruits and vegetables. These estrogens can also be naturally found in certain types of food.

 

The efficacy of estrogens in food as a means to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes has yet to be definitively proven. Though some studies have indicated weak estrogen-like effects from isoflavones, those with a medical history of breast cancer should consult their healthcare provider before supplementing their diet with isoflavone pills.

 

Black cohosh: Black cohosh has risen in popularity among women suffering from menopausal symptoms. However, there is scant evidence to suggest that the supplement is effective and could potentially cause harm to the liver. Additionally, it is not recommended for those with a risk of breast cancer.

 

Acupuncture: Recent research findings have yet to demonstrate a significant or consistent improvement in reducing hot flashes through the use of acupuncture. Further studies are necessary to explore the potential efficacy of the practice.
