Women’s Hormones

A Better Way To Health, Happiness, and Feeling Young Again.

Symptoms Of Hormonal Imbalance

Many young women suffer from painful menses, PMS, irregular cycles, weight gain, and acne.  At Ohm & Oot Wellness Medicine our aim is to identify the hormone imbalance causing these symptoms.  The root cause may be estrogen-dominance (seen in endometriosis and fibroids), Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), low thyroid, or low progesterone levels from lack of ovulation. 

Our goal is to help you balance your hormones naturally when possible through diet, lifestyle, and targeted supplements.  The entire body is connected, so sometimes healing the gut can have tremendous impact on hormone health!  We also prescribe bio-identical hormones to help regulate cycles, which is often a better option for women compared to birth control pills, which often carry side effects.  Dr. Fayssoux will advise you on your diet, vitamins, and exercise which can have significant impact on hormonal health and symptoms.

What Are The Symptoms Of Menopause?

The menopause side effects and symptoms can begin to affect a woman years before menopause actually begins. This period of time is known as perimenopause and is defined by the hormonal changes that occur as the body transitions into menopause. During this time, the ovaries begin to produce less estrogen and progesterone and, in some cases, affect levels of testosterone as well.

Diminishing levels of sex hormones can lead to the uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause, including poor sleep, low energy, weight gain, low libido and mood swings. These are a just a few of the symptoms. Experts have defined a list of 34 menopausal symptoms that may affect a woman as she approaches menopause. Not all women will experience every symptom. The good news is that if you are experiencing distress and discomfort due to any one of these menopausal symptoms, there are effective treatment options available.

Menopause & Perimenopause Treatment

 

When you are suffering from a hormonal imbalance, the symptoms of menopause and perimenopause can completely derail your life. You may feel willing to undergo any treatment necessary for relief, but you don’t have to resort to potentially dangerous medications with long lists of side effects. When you are considering undertaking menopause treatment, natural solutions offer the best long term results with minimal side effects. You can control your menopause symptoms safely and effectively with natural menopause treatments with Ohm & Oot Wellness Medicine.

To begin your natural menopause treatment, Dr Kinder Fayssoux will run comprehensive hormone testing to discover your current hormone levels and imbalances. We will discuss your test results, symptoms and health history to pinpoint the best angle of treatment for your individual needs, wants and desires.

Your natural menopause treatment may include:

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

 

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

 

Like other forms of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is designed to replace the hormones that we lose while in the grips of menopause. Restoring lost hormones can relieve us of the menopausal symptoms that result from hormonal imbalance. What sets BHRT apart from traditional HRT that uses synthetic hormones is the quality of the hormones. Synthetic hormones are mass-produced in different pre-determined strengths and marketed to the general populace. On the other hand, BHRT uses natural replacement hormones, often derived from plants, which have been engineered to be chemically identical to the natural hormones found in the human body.

 

Ideal Timing of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

 

Since menopause can be so unique to each individual, the answer to this question will vary for everybody. In a perfect world, every person would recognize the exact moment they entered menopausal transition. Yet, it often doesn’t work like this. It can take people a long time to recognize some of the feelings they have experienced as being symptoms of menopause. Oftentimes, people will write off symptoms as normal signs of aging.

If there is an ideal time for a person to begin bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, it’s whenever that person notices they are suffering from menopausal symptoms that hinder their ability to enjoy a high quality of life. This isn’t to say that the negative effects of menopause can be mitigated by BHRT alone; you can make lifestyle changes, such as improved diet and exercise, which can have a positive effect in reducing the symptoms of menopause. Yet, there’s a good chance that such positive lifestyle changes will start to lose effectiveness as you get further into menopausal transition. At that point, combining the use of bioidentical hormones with a healthy lifestyle could be just the thing you need to correct the imbalance of your hormone levels that come with the onset of menopause and andropause.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

 

Like many other forms of medicine, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) comes with benefits and risks. However, the benefits of bioidentical hormones far outweigh the risks. Bio-identical hormones are most commonly prescribed to treat symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women and men, such as hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, and irritability. Many doctors practitioners believe that women and men who opt for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) instead of undergoing synthetic HRT will experience fewer adverse reactions. The side effects of BHRT are usually mild if present at all.
