Menopause occurs about a year after a woman's last menstrual cycle, typically happening in women anywhere between the ages of 40 and 60, with the average age being 51. The technical definition of menopause is “the end of menstruation.” Menopause is a natural biological process and happens as women age. This end of menstruation for women results in the body’s inability to produce estrogen and progesterone. The process is the endpoint for a woman's fertility, and it usually comes along with some other side effects and health issues.
As we age, our body slows its natural production and release of hormones, resulting in hormonal imbalance. This is what causes our health, energy, physical appearance, and libido to start declining. Aging also causes your metabolism to slow which results in weight gain and muscle loss. All of these not only make you feel older but look older as well. Luckily, there is a way to regulate your hormones and regain your youthful vitality through hormone replacement therapy.
It's easy to have a cheat day (or two) over the weekend. Eating out at restaurants, drinking with friends, indulging in dessert, or your favorite junk food; sounds like a great weekend, right? However, when Monday rolls around you may feel the negative effects of your unhealthy eating. It may cause you to feel bloated, sluggish, or tired, and you may also experience digestive issues and headaches. Luckily you can quickly bounce back and get back to feeling healthy and happy again.
