Naturopathic Care for Menopause

What is Menopause?

Dr. Sapna Patel Flower ND & Dr. Sue Love ND 

Experience mid-life healthcare like you never have before.

Both Dr. Sapna and Dr. Sue hold their North American Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP) designation as evidence-based practitioners in the fields of Perimenopause and Menopause care and are active members of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

At Restore, we believe women should be armed with education when it comes to this great milestone in our hormonal health.  It’s not a time where we should be forgotten and set aside in terms of our overall health concerns (where many times it can be chalked up to, “well, you’re in menopause, what do you expect.”)   We want women to feel supported, listened to, know their options and risk factors as we approach and rock our 50’s and beyond.

Menopause typically occurs between age 50 – 52 and is diagnosed 12 months after your last period.  During the years leading up to that last period and after, the ovaries are no longer producing eggs and estrogen levels decrease.  It’s this decrease in estrogen and its partner progesterone that leads to the variety of symptoms of menopause and its impact on our health thereafter.

It’s important to remember that menopause is a natural part of aging. However, you also don’t have to go through menopause on your own.  Dr. Sapna and Dr. Sue can help you manage this transition feeling empowered as well as identify risk factors before they become an issue so that you can live your healthiest life post-menopause.

Common Symptoms of Menopause :

  • Hot flashes or feelings of heat
  • Night sweats resulting in the disruption to sleep.
  • Brain fog and difficulty concentrating
  • Muscle or joint aches
  • Decreased energy and feeling of wellbeing
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary frequency or recurring infections
  • Mood changes, irritability, depression
  • Sleep disturbances and or insomnia independent of night sweats
  • Abdominal weight gain or difficulty losing weight
  • Loss of bone density (20% in the first 7 years!)
  • Thinning hair
  • Changing lab markers of cholesterol and blood sugars and increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
