Can natural or bioidentical hormones help perimenopause symptoms?
Watch as Naturopathic Doctor and Licensed Acupuncturist Dr. Pina LoGiudice explains how natural or bioidentical hormones can help ease perimenopause symptoms.
So the aging process doesn't have to be a horror. And you could use these natural bioidenticals with a peace of mind and help them alleviate any of the symptoms.
Most women, when they're going through a perimenopausal phase, which most women don't even understand that perimenopause can even start at the age of 35 and all the way up,
so some of those menstrual irregularities or mood changes or sleep changes can be because of perimenopause. And so usually at that time, the first line of therapy
I always try to do more natural, less invasive in terms of diet changes, lifestyle changes, exercise.
All those things can help the liver metabolize your hormones and elevate them naturally. And then another course would be, then, the phytonutrients, using, again,
some other botanicals that, again, can help balance your hormones. And then on top of that, again, the upper tier on that
would be the bioidentical hormones. And absolutely, as a naturopath, I do prefer them over the synthetic hormones because bioidenticals are exactly what your body is
producing. And so it has the same chemical constituents. So it's not cancer inducing. And it helps regulate your body's hormones
as you would want them to. So the aging process doesn't have to be a horror. And you could use these natural biochemicals with a peace of mind and help them alleviate
any of the symptoms, especially osteoporosis, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, and mood changes. So I definitely would recommend them to my patients.
