Menopause does not have to be a strictly negative experience, and many post-menopausal women find that in addition to maintaining their sex drive they also feel that they become more intuitive and connected with their inner selves. Our physicians, midwives, and nurse practitioners carry specialty expertise in helping women transition comfortably into post-menopausal states. At your appointments, we encourage you to discuss your questions and concerns with your practitioner to help us find the best way to address your lifestyle expectations and to help you find relief from uncomfortable symptoms with the latest treatment options including hormone therapy.
Whole Body Health Approach
While we often think of our bodies and minds as separate components, it is important to take into account the complex interactions that take place within when addressing health concerns that arise in the menopausal life stage. Diet, exercise, stress levels, and general mental health are all factors that can play integral roles in your overall well-being, and we strive to help patients maintain awareness of these factors during their menopause years.
Individuals carry different beliefs and expectations for their futures, and it is important to share your long-term lifestyle goals with your physician so we can help you target your future goals today.
During your visit, topics discussed with your physician may include:
• Breast Care
• Bone health
• Dietary concerns
