Going Through Perimenopause or Menopause?
If you're a woman over the age of 50 or mid-40s, experiencing irregular periods, hot flashes, mood swings, bladder issues, low sex drive, or insomnia, you may be wondering if you're experiencing menopause.
In truth, women typically experience symptoms of perimenopause, which occurs as a result of your body transitioning into menopause. A woman's body begins to produce less estrogen or fluctuating hormone levels, thus causing either heavier, lighter, or no periods. A woman does not officially reach menopause until she goes 12 consecutive months without a period.
Throughout the perimenopause stage, symptoms can be grueling to endure and may interfere with one's personal or work life, but the underlying issues and future implications may be far more serious. In addition to hot flashes and other symptoms associated with perimenopause, medical science has proven that if your body does a poor job of adapting to stress entering this transition, you are more likely to suffer from depression, autoimmune conditions, strokes, osteoporosis, and cognitive decline.
Is There Relief?
While perimenopause and menopause are inevitable for women, there are holistic solutions that can help alleviate these symptoms while addressing root issues that could cause chronic health conditions down the road.
There is a misconception that the root cause of the dramatic shifts in perimenopause and menopause is solely an estrogen problem. Fundamentally, the root cause of the symptoms common to perimenopause and menopause are due to a stuck “fight or flight” response. This overloaded stress response dictates the fluctuation in your sex hormones, rise in inflammation, and imbalance in your immune system. This cascade can be directly responsible for long-term complications like depression, inflammation, strokes, osteoporosis, cognitive decline, and chronic immune system issues like cancer. The good news is that women experiencing difficult symptoms of perimenopause or menopause can combat immediate symptoms like hot flashes or low sex drive and interrupt the long-term stress-related health complications before they escalate.
Based on medical science, before receiving perimenopause or menopause care options, patients should responsibly discuss their past stressors (physical, chemical, and emotional), previous or current medications, other conditions, etc. so that all their body’s systems are considered. This will assist your practitioner in determining your best options.

What Patients Say:
I was experiencing pain in my body, including headaches and fatigue, from lots of inflammation. A thermography scan showed the inflammation. I really wanted to find a natural solution to decreasing the pain, while also improving energy and balancing hormones in my body. I was introduced to Dr. Hellmann and he immediately found some root causes of the inflammation. Over the last several months I have received great results! Not only do I feel better, but a post-thermography scan shows that I am much healthier. I even breezed right through menopause without the so called “miserable symptoms”! I highly recommend Dr. Hellmann and his team at Pathway to Wellness!!!
