Menopause occurs when the ovaries in women stop producing estrogen. During menopause, to maintain a healthy lifestyle, estrogen therapy in the form of estradiol (not synthetic estrogens) becomes necessary. A lack of estrogen leads to hot flashes, negative skin and urogenital changes, vaginal atrophy and difficulty holding your bladder. Estrogen therapy helps protect against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s Disease.
It is important not to use synthetic estrogens as they have been shown to be harmful in some women. For optimal therapy and improvement in symptoms, natural estrogen should be balanced with natural progesterone. If you want to maintain youth, why allow the hormones of youth to go away?
