Personalized Programs for Women
While hormones can become imbalanced at any age in women, they most often become imbalanced during the reproductive years, perimenopause, and menopause. During the reproductive years, hormones commonly become imbalanced due to stress, lifestyle habits, lack of sleep and overwork. However, in youthful women imbalances often correct themselves because younger bodies heal faster and can rectify imbalances more effectively. As women age, it becomes more difficult for the body to heal and as hormone levels drop, women may begin to experience symptoms of age-related hormonal decline.
Initial phases of ovarian hormonal decline bring about the phase of perimenopause, which lead to symptoms that include fatigue, lack of motivation, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, infertility, anovulation, headaches, increased PMS symptoms, and bloating. Hormones such as estrogen and progesterone can be restored with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to reduce the symptoms of perimenopause.
Three years to a decade after perimenopause begins, women enter menopause, which marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. During menopause, the adrenal glands are supposed to take over the production of estrogen and progesterone, but many times, the adrenals are unable to meet the body’s demands for hormone production.
The journey through menopause is deeply personal. Each woman has unique needs and goals as they walk through this life-changing transition. It should be emphasized that menopause is not a disease state! But woman often enter menopause with existing hormone imbalances and health issues that can make the journey more difficult.
Jessica Stefanski partners with her menopausal patients to develop an individualized plan that supports them on their journey through menopause.
Natural medicine, including bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, (BHRT) can be extremely helpful in the years leading up to menopause and in the years afterwards. Jessica Stefanski has completed advanced BHRT training with WorldLink Medical and Neal Rouzier, M.D. who is considered the foremost expert on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the United States and abroad.
