The physical symptoms of menopause and perimenopause can include insomnia, hot flashes, and weight gain, and can be quite debilitating.
However, the mental and emotional symptoms of anxiety, depression, and mood swings can be equally disturbing.
At least 80 percent of women will have some kind of symptom, whether physical or emotional.
Women in the Eastern countries don't suffer as much as women in the West, potentially due to their primarily fish- and plant-based diets and their reduced intake of sugar. They also tend to have lower estrogen levels to begin with, so once menopause starts to take hold the effects aren't as drastic.
If you're starting to feel some of these symptoms, what are your options for relief?
Dr. Nyjon Eccles is one of the leading Integrated Medicine Physicians in the UK and has a reputation for his practice of evidence-based Integrated Medicine. He has spent years researching restoration of health using nutrients, phytochemicals and electromagnetic medicine.
Many women will turn to synthetic hormones for hormone replacement therapy (HRT), but Dr. Eccles doesn't use synthetic HRT at all in his practice. He has found more effective ways to treat women's symptoms.
For instance, one option he offers is natural hormones or bio-identical hormones. These hormones are very individualized to a particular patient, based on blood and urine tests to determine what they are deficient in.
This approach is very unique to the woman and her needs and deficiencies. Plus, these women get all of the benefits without the long-term side effects of synthetic options.
