- Are you one of the lucky ones who escaped any menopausal symptoms?
- Or are you experiencing hot flashes, night sweats, and sleep disturbances?
- Are you looking for assistance with your symptoms, perhaps a non-hormonal treatment for menopause?
In very simple terms, menopause starts when menstruation stops, thus ending a woman’s reproductive cycle. Usually, menopause is a gradual process over time that occurs at varying ages when a woman is over 40. Sometimes, however, menopause occurs earlier, prior to the age of 40, possibly due to genetics, medical procedures, or autoimmune disorders. In either case, symptoms range from woman to woman, but might include varying levels of:
- Joint and muscle aches and pains
- Physical and mental fatigue
- Racing heart
- Mood swings
Menopause is experienced differently by every woman. Some barely notice any symptoms while others find their whole worlds turned upside down. Suffering from these symptoms at any level causes unnecessary discomfort. Simple lifestyle alteration can help significantly, and many times, symptoms can be treated with nutritional supplementation and chiropractic care.
Dietary changes and nutritional supplementation have been shown to provide successful relief for hormonal imbalances causing hot flashes, depression, insomnia, and irritability. With the right type and combinations of Standard Process nutritional supplements, Dr. Mason Greenslade’s individual plans help to put patients back in balance and feeling better.
Many times, chiropractic treatment can help the nerve flow to the hormonal system. By using the Advanced Certified Activator technique, Dr. Greenslade employs an instrument adjustment process that uses a device to manipulate and impact joints to help realign the patient. This process is very comfortable, gentle, and safe, and it does not use manual force.
Additionally, a combination of treatments—nutritional, chiropractic, and exercise—often produces the very best results.
