Menopause symptoms are caused by the drop in oestrogen levels. The average age for a woman to go through menopause is 51 but symptoms can occur at the start of the peri-menopause in your late 30's. Having low oestrogen levels puts menopausal women at a higher risk of dementia, osteoporosis and heart disease. What many do not realise, is that nutritional deficiencies can make menopause symptoms worse.
Menopause symptoms can bring on stress which means even more hormones become imbalanced. All menopause symptoms can be treated naturally through lifestyle and diet changes. There is no need for synthetic hormones. Diet and lifestyle changes reduces all risk factors from degenerative diseases.
Suzie has experience in offering health and lifestyle plans to help with hormone issues - in particular, menopause. She has helped many women feel like their best selves again.
Suzie also offers hormone testing which can show which stage you are at within the menopause. This test measures your adrenal function. This is below your kidney and produces stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. The test is an easy saliva test which can be taken in your own home. Suzie will analyse the results and determine your stress levels and adrenal exhaustion.
We can test if stress is having a negative effect on the menopause symptoms and energy levels. This is measured through a hormone panel test which measures your progesterone and oestrogen levels over the course of a month. This is an accurate method rather that a 'one shot in time' test that is offered by your GP. Our tests measure fluctuations in your hormone levels. This can help identify issues that we can work to solve.
Suzie has helped many women through their menopause symptoms. Many without any testing necessary! Feel like yourself again with a 1-1 session with Suzie. Get in touch to discuss your symptoms.
