It happens to all of us eventually – ovarian retirement. The average age for the cessation of our periods is around 52, but for some women it could be as early as their 40’s or as late as 60. Symptoms can range from a seamless transition of a year of no periods to raging symptoms including anxiety, depression, hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, insomnia and so much more. Beyond the actual cessation of cycles and the myriad of symptoms that can come with the fluctuation, then flatlining, of hormones are increased risk for heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.
It’s not all doom and gloom though; this normal transition of a woman’s hormones can be managed with dietary, herbal support and with natural hormone replacement when necessary. We can travel this road together, helping you feel better during the transition, afterward, and prevent future risk factors. This can be a transformative time despite the upheaval and you can come out a more powerful woman in the process!
