What is Menopause?
Menopause is a natural transition in a woman’s life. Many women are searching for answers and they don’t know where to turn. They may have seen their primary doctor and left more confused than ever, or even incorrectly prescribed medication based on a misdiagnosis.
For some women, this transition barely affects them, for others it can be a hormonal nightmare. menopause is – it is when a woman’s menstrual cycle stops for 12 consecutive months. Perimenopause is the 2-8 years prior to menopause. During this period of time, women may experience hot flashes, night sweats, foggy brain, vaginal dryness and loss of sex drive, to name a few.
San Diego's Menopause Expert
For 25+ years, I’ve taken care of hundreds of women going through perimenopause & menopause. Hearing statements like “Just deal with it, It’s just part of aging, or take an anti-depressant” make me cringe. That is why I’ve dedicated myself to helping women through this transition and to gain the knowledge to live this part of life beyond the fullest.
By having the most accurate, up-to-date information available, we can formulate the best treatment plan for you. Using natural measures like exercise, diet and lifestyle changes many of these symptoms can be lessened. For some women, these recommendations are not enough and they need hormone therapy. I recommend bio-identical hormone therapy which means using hormones that are identical to the hormones that your own body produces.
