The list of benefits continues to grow when replacing your hormones (Testosterone and Estradiol).
Are you menopausal and have any of the following symptoms?
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Dry Vagina
- Painful intercourse
- Dry skin
- Lack of sex drive
- Lack of motivation
- Depression and or anxiety
- Change in body composition, with fat collection in the abdomen
- Loss of Muscle Mass and strength
- Inability to remember names and places
- Decreased ability to problem solve
- Body pain
These are all symptoms we currently are aware of associated with menopause and low testosterone. These symptoms can be treated and reversed with bioidentical estradiol and testosterone pellets. Menopause should be treated like an illness that is universal but more severe in some women compared with others. If your symptoms affect your lifestyle, relationships and work then you should see a doctor who treats hormone deficiency and accept treatment!
However, if you allow yourself to be manipulated by a male-dominated medical system that teaches all doctors to believe that menopause is normal as women age and don’t seek out hormone replacement, then you just may be setting yourself up for years of symptoms that are treated with handfuls of medications, but never get you back to normal.
Just think about this for a minute: Men develop erectile dysfunction and experience muscle loss as they age, but medicine doesn’t consider ED or Sarcopenia a natural aging process for men, they advocate and endorse treatment with testosterone, ED medications, injections for ED and therapy for ED, and in most cases pay for it! If the male mentality would include women we would all be treated with estrogen and testosterone when we got to age 50 (or menopause).
It is not just about the symptoms that E-T replacement can cure, but the diseases that you can avoid by taking estrogen and testosterone after menopause. These avoidable diseases of aging include:
- Osteoporosis leading to broken bones and spinal stenosis.
- Heart disease and stroke
- Alzheimer’s Dx and dementia
- Low muscle mass and inability to walk or move independently.
- Autoimmune diseases
- Loss of blood flow to Lower extremity, resulting in amputations and inhibiting walking and running
- Severe arthritis
- Worsening depression and anxiety
- Frailty which is what causes most older people to be placed in a nursing home.
Just think it is not fate that gives you these conditions. It is genetics plus lifestyle plus whether you replace your sex hormones or not! This decision is in your control. If you really want a life free of debilitating disease and symptoms that are require constant medical care, then you must buck the system (that was designed to keep us from maintaining our mind and body) and look for a doctor to replace your testosterone and estradiol in a non-oral delivery system and maintain it for life.
By stopping ERT or Testosterone like the ACOG doctors tell you to, you will start the symptoms all over again. My job is to offer you the right type of help to reverse the effects of menopause…both symptoms and diseases. Your job is to decide whether you want to get help and become healthy by taking non-oral estrogen and testosterone for the rest of your life.
Think of menopause as a disease and you will be more prepared to fight for your right to be treated by the medical system.
