Menopause & Perimenopause

The menopause is something all women face at some point in their lives. Some pass through the transition relatively painlessly. For others it can be a traumatic time, both physically and emotionally. The turmoil which I have seen some of my cancer patients go through after early surgical menopause has prompted me to focus on this problem which often does not get the attention it deserves considering how it turns the lives of some women up side down.

In addition to Conventional hormone replacement therapy prescription for which can be issued I can help my patients navigate through information on complementary and alternative medicine and nutritional support.
