Effective, Affordable and Natural HRT Solutions for Menopausal and Perimenopausal Women in Land O’Lakes and throughout Tampa Bay
After the age of 25, our bodies go through a multitude of changes as we continue the aging process. Most of these are not considered desirable. The most notable of these changes starts when a woman enters pre-menopause also known as perimenopause. Perimenopause can be recognized most often by the inability to lose weight and any slight change to the menstrual cycle. This can be as small as missing one period cycle over a 12-month period. Along with these external changes is the decline in a women’s hormone levels. Because of the hormone decline, negative impacts on physical, emotional, and mental well-being can occur. Each person is affected differently by these decline in hormones. Skin, hair, and nails may no longer look full and youthful. Mood and personality may no longer be as mellow, calm, or easy-going as it was before. Weight loss, energy, and exercise may be seemingly tougher to maintain.
What is Menopause?
Menopause is a milestone in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop producing hormones entirely. This comes after perimenopause. It is not something that happens all at once. This happens gradually through perimenopause. It is typically recognized by the onset of hot flashes. Hot flashes occur because the body is indicating that it really needs the estrogen produced in the ovaries and isn’t getting enough to function property. The best source of estrogen is produced in the ovaries. A back-up production facility is excess fat tissue. The estrogen produced in the fat tissue is not the same as in the overtries and is extremely inferior because it is not able to signal body functions in the same manner as ovarian estrogen. The estrogen produced in fat tissue is linked to cancer and the inability to lose excess fat. Using a bio-identical estriol and estriol blend is the best choice once ovarian estrogen is no longer produced. This is because it is more like the estrogen produced by the ovaries, and it works synergistically sending out signals to the body producing calming, healing, and joyful effects.
The major Menopause “breakthrough” is when females enter Postmenopause, which is commonly used to describe the years that follow the hot flashes. While a woman may rejoice that she no longer has periods and hot flashes, the unfortunate tradeoff is that she typically doesn’t sleep well through the night either. The onset of Menopause technically begins at the end of the female reproductive cycle, declining or unstable hormone levels can cause menopause symptoms as early as 10 years prior during Perimenopause, also referred to as “Early Menopause” and/or “Menopause Transition.” Most Menopause symptoms and Perimenopause symptoms are caused when ovarian production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone decrease and create a hormone imbalance and/or hormone deficiency within the body.
Surgical Menopause occurs when women undergo the surgical removal of the ovaries via a hysterectomy, also known as a “ Total Hysterectomy” or partial hysterectomy”. Following the surgical procedure, estrogen levels plummet drastically and can lead to very severe and devastating symptoms including mood decline and weight gain.

Why Choose Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
If you or a loved one is experiencing the signs and symptoms of perimenopause or menopause, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the superior solution. Hormone balance is vital for both genders, and at all stages of life, but it’s especially important for postmenopausal women. BHRT is an effective treatment option that’s proven to successfully balance women’s hormones post-menopause. Unlike conventional forms of hormone therapy, bioidentical hormones are natural plant-based compounds that imitate the same molecular structure as your body’s naturally-produced hormones, providing patients with less side effects and faster results.
The hormone therapy doctors at Envizion Medical have years of experience providing the best Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy options for Postmenopausal Women. We take pride in offering our patients a variety of natural hormone replacement therapies such as Testosterone, Progesterone and Estrogen hormones, including , Estradiol ( E2), Estriol (E3). With our approach we like to see Estrone (E1) levels decline once (E2) and (E3) are introduced, because this is the hormone produced in the fat tissue of menopausal women. In healthy younger women Estrone level are typically low, and when getting hormones rebalanced this will start to begin naturally.
