Ask any 40+ year old woman about her health, and menopause will usually be one of the first things mentioned. Menopause symptoms drive women crazy! What woman wants to open the bedroom window in the middle of winter, sleepwalk her way through her workday, or yell and scream at the their loved ones at the drop of a hat? Women should be tired of getting prescriptions for depression just because they’re going through menopause. Menopause symptoms are horrible, and no woman should have to live with them. Well, with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), now they don’t! BHRT has been repeatedly featured on Oprah, and is fully endorsed by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. Unlike typical hormone replacement therapy drugs, like Premarin or Prempro, which are manufactured from horse urine and can increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancers, bio-identical hormones are made from natural plant-based ingredients like wild yams. Recent news stories have reported the increased risk of breast cancer from using Premarin and/or Prempro. These increased risks are not associated with natural bio-identical hormones.
BHRT is now available right here in Grand Blanc at the Natural Wellness & Pain Relief Centers of Michigan. Dr. Megan Strauchman, the center’s medical director, is expertly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of symptoms that respond well to bio-identical hormones, such as hot flashes, mood swings, chronic fatigue, migraines, loss of libido, and “brain fog.” Dr. Strauchman is fellowship trained in anti-aging and regenerative medicine, and frequently uses BHRT to successfully treat her patients. According to Dr. Strauchman,
"Hormonal imbalances can be caused by a variety of outside factors and lifestyle choices. Chemicals in our makeup, toxins in our air and water, preservatives in our foods, and heavy metal exposure can all contribute to hormonal imbalances. My goal for each patient that I see is to figure out not just what is wrong, but also why it’s going wrong. That way I can correct the underlying cause of the symptom and keep it from coming back. This is the true essence of preventive medicine."
Many physicians providing this therapy charge thousands of dollars and do not bill health insurance. However, Dr. Strauchman is dedicated to making bio-identical hormones affordable to everyone.
"I believe that everyone should have equal access to this revolutionary therapy. Our offices are happy to bill our patients’ health insurance plans as a courtesy to them, so patients may be at least partially reimbursed for their treatment costs."
