Many symptoms surround menopause, as well as certain medical conditions that are directly tied to it. Such symptoms may be one of the reasons why a woman needs hormone therapy. Watch the YouTube video ‘Women’s Wellness: Hormone Therapy And Alzheimer’s Disease’.
This video provides some incredible insights into the benefits of hormone therapy.
A woman will inevitably go through menopause at some point in her life. However, menopause doesn’t suddenly land; it is a relatively slow and gradual process. As the woman transitions, her ovaries reduce the production of estrogen and progesterone. Hormone therapy is necessary to help make the transition smooth. It essentially boosts hormone levels and relieves some of the symptoms of menopause.
There are two main types of hormone therapy. Estrogen therapy is a stand-alone hormone that can be ingested in different ways and should be taken in small doses. The other is progestin hormone therapy, a combination of synthetic progesterone and estrogen. It is best for people who have a uterus. Other than alleviating the symptoms of menopause, hormone therapy has many health benefits, including improved mood and reduced chances of getting osteoporosis, tooth loss, and diabetes. These treatment methods must be by recommendation and prescription by a doctor.
