Listen up ladies! If you are in early stages of Menopause (or not quite at that point) there are many reasons to start Bioidentical Hormone Therapy with a Cream.
It may be difficult to think about or know how to get started, but the benefits can change the next several years of your life!
Three areas where you will see changes, are in SYMPTOMS, DISEASE prevention, and ANTI-AGING. You see, the symptoms you may be experiencing in your 40’s and 50’s, when life for most of us is CRAZY BUSY, is usually blamed on, well… a CRAZY BUSY LIFE. Right? I can’t sleep because I have so much going on in my head. I can’t lose weight because I am so busy, that I can’t eat right or exercise. My hair is thinning because I am getting older. I am having hot flashes or night sweats because that’s just part of menopause. I am moody because everyone around me is crazy and lazy (ok that one I just made up).
But seriously, your moods may change from one to the next, and you find it hard to focus. So that’s not so bad ... Right? WHAT?! Come on! These are our BEST years of our life. Kids are getting older, maybe leaving the nest soon. It’s time for you and your partner to find romance again. Oh yes, and one of the biggest symptoms most women face that isn’t even listed above is Vaginal Dryness.
Well that can’t be happening when these are supposed to be the best years of your life, right? Many women experience vaginal atrophy, but it’s not talked about like hot flashes. The last thing you want to do is take out the rocking chair and let menopause determine how you are going to live these next few decades. You have a choice (many choices) and since we are now living years beyond menopause empower yourself with the information you need and actions to take care of yourself so these are good years. Years to enjoy traveling or doing your favorite hobbies or spending time with the kids and grandchildren and reigniting that spark your relationship.
So why does this happen and what can we do?
It starts with Progesterone which literally starts to plummet when we hit about 35 years old! GOSH! That was 23 years ago for me! I wasn't ready for that!
And, if that's not enough... it declines so rapidly that within 15 years, by the time you are 50 years old, you have only 25% of the Progesterone you had at 35 years old.
Actually, this is a bigger problem than just the fact that it's barely present by the time we hit 50. Because Progesterone is our important Balancing Hormone!
Progesterone is our Calming Sex Hormone. It has an amazing effect on our brain chemistry by increasing the most abundant neurotransmitter in our body, called GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid.).
GABA is the brain's CALMING neurotransmitter! More Please!
Progesterone is also our Sleep Hormone. It is vital for a good night's sleep! No wonder women start to have sleeping disturbances in midlife!
Progesterone also increases Growth Hormone - our Mommy Hormone! And you know how the saying goes - "When Mom's Happy, Everyone's Happy!"
Progesterone also increases thyroid function, helps keep our immune system strong - repairing cells while we sleep, helps prevent bone loss, decreases pain, inflammation, headaches and muscle cramps.
Progesterone also helps prevent diabetes!
Progesterone decreases blood pressure, thus helping decrease heart disease! And finally ... what you have been hoping and waiting for... Progesterone alone, even without Estrogen, can significantly reduce and even eliminate hot flashes! Especially if you start using Progesterone before you enter Menopause.
Did you know that youthful levels of Progesterone have been shown to decrease your risk of breast cancer?
In fact, if a woman ends up with an Estrogen Receptor positive breast cancer, she has a better chance of total remission if the breast cancer ALSO has positive Progesterone Receptors.
An increasingly common "trick" in the Functional Medical community to help fight the Estrogen and Progesterone Receptor positive breast cancer, is to have women use high doses of Progesterone. Usually 400mg or more, (oral), per day and to have this Progesterone compounded in an extended release form. Very smart! And extremely effective!
Did you know that you can actually "SEE" your risk of Breast Cancer by looking at the levels of your Estrone (E1?)
We always talk about E2 - Estradiol. But it's Estrone (E1) that increases our risk of breast cancer far more than Estradiol (E2)!
In fact, using E2 for at least 10 years AFTER menopause DECREASES your risk of breast cancer.
How educated are you on this?
Do you want to know more?
Here are 10 FACTS ABOUT ESTROGEN THAT ARE IMPERATIVE YOU KNOW:
- Estrogen does NOT causeBreast Cancer. (But the Synthetic Prescribed ProgesTINS do!)
- Estrogen Hormonal Supplementation DECREASES Breast Cancerfor more than 10 years. (Which is as long as the largest study, the Women’s Health Initiative, was active.)
- Estrogen that is supplemented by TOPICAL application, (by patch, cream or gel) does NOT increase your risk of stroke or blood clot. (But Estrogen taken ORALLY, DOES increase the risk of stroke and blood clots by a small amount.)
- Estrogen should ALWAYS be taken with Bioidentical ProgesterONE – whether you have a Uterus or not. No woman who uses Estrogen should be without bioidentical ProgesterONE.
- Estrogen increases Serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is critical for the balance of healthy brain function and is the main Neurotransmitter increased by Antidepressant medications such as Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, and Lexepro.
- Estrogen increases Acetylcholine in the brain. Acetylcholine is critical for memory, learning, and motivation, and is the main Neurotransmitter increased by the prescribed Dementia medication, Aricept.
- Estrogen decreases your risk of Heart Disease, the number one cause of death in the U.S.
- Estrogen decreases your risk of Osteoporosis and Broken Bones.Osteoporosis is a silent disease with debilitating effects that has no adequate treatment or reversal.
- Estrogen supports a healthy libido and a healthy vagina,which also helps decrease the risk of Urinary Tract Infections and Urinary Leakage.
- Estrogen helps decrease joint and muscle pain as well as help prevent arthritis and scar tissue formation around joints called adhesive capsulitis.
So I hope now you are more informed and see how important it is NOT JUST TO ALLEVIATE your menopause symptoms but also reduce the risk of many diseases and live a healthier, happier life!
