Happy Hormones Series: Post Menopause

Post Menopause

After menopause, cardiovascular and bone health become priorities as estrogen levels drastically decline. (5) Inflammation and metabolic health are the biggest drivers of increased cardiovascular risk and decreased bone density. This is a top priority when working with women post menopause. (6)

I continue to recommend:

  • A minimum of 7 hours of sleep,

  • Identifying and addressing any food sensitivities

  • Optimizing the gut

  • Stabilizing blood sugar levels

These all can help women have a much better experience transitioning through this phase of life. These factors can also help decrease women's risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy [BHRT]

Additionally, I find that topical bioidentical estradiol paired with oral progesterone can be extremely helpful. These help with alleviating hot flashes and many other symptoms associated with menopause. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can also help with bone, breast, and cardiovascular health. I recommend working with a functional medicine provider who has experience with prescribing these hormones. They can help monitor urine metabolites to be sure these hormones are given safely, and at the correct dose for your body.

Feeling Your Best- At Any Age, At Any Stage

Taking an integrative functional medicine approach can make a huge difference in reducing unwanted symptoms as women transition through each hormonal phase of their lives. By uncovering and addressing the root causes of these imbalances, we can help women feel better now- and prevent unwanted issues in the future. Removing what the body doesn’t want and giving it what it needs brings true health and healing so women can thrive and feel their best.
