What is Menopause, Exactly?

Menopause is a natural biological process defined as the permanent end of menstruation and fertility. Menopause occurs in women between the ages of 40-60, but according to the Mayo Clinic, the average age is 51 in the United States.

There is no “cure” for menopause. As mentioned, it’s a natural biological process that is supposed to happen. However, menopause has some very uncomfortable and annoying symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, low energy, depression, and it may even trigger increased anxiety or feelings of sadness.

Hormone Deficiencies

It is believed that a loss of the hormone estrogen is what causes menopausal symptoms. Hormone levels fluctuate differently between each individual. These levels may even change on a day-to-day basis. During menopause, a severe estrogen deficiency can cause many symptoms like loss of sex drive, mood swings, irritability, and all the other symptoms mentioned above.

Balancing Hormones & Hormone Replacement Therapy

At New Era Health Group we understand the complexity of menopausal symptoms and how to treat them. Hormone deficiencies require a multi-faceted treatment approach that is specific to each individual.

Our main focus is hormone replacement therapy, which means replacing the female hormones the body no longer makes after menopause. We offer many different facets of hormone therapy. Each treatment is based on an individual’s specific needs and goals, whether it’s increased libido, more energy, healthier living, or better well-being.

Alongside hormone therapy, we also offer a full-range of other therapies that focus health, fitness, and life balance. These therapies are designed to achieve a healthier “you” by increasing performance, stamina, libido, and energy. Exercise and a proper diet have been proven to reduce menopausal symptoms, so our structured programs include nutrition and exercise plans.

During a time when many women are experiencing anxiety about going through menopause, our goal is to offer patients hope and excitement about a “new era” of their lives.
