Hot flashes. Brain fog. Night sweats. Exhaustion. If you’re living through Menopause right now, chances are those words will strike fear in your heart… And possibly trigger a hot flash - apologies. Accidental triggering aside, Menopause symptoms can be the bane of a woman’s life for over a decade. 

Thankfully, there are some things you can do to make Menopause a bit easier. 

As we go through Menopause - and we’ll all go through it at some point - we’re witnessing the fallout from the shutting down of our reproductive system. Yup, Menopause is the point at which our fertility pretty much comes to a grinding halt. And, as a result, our Estrogen and Progesterone levels start to drop.

When you really stop and think about it, it's kind of surprising how much of an impact a dip in reproductive hormones can have on our lives. A lot of women can definitely vouch for the fact that it can be a total game-changer. 

That incredibly slow reduction in Estrogen and Progesterone, in fact, causes a whole heap of trouble. And we’re not just talking hot flashes and night sweats, either.

We’re talking memory loss, vaginal dryness, no libido, loss of bone density, no motivation, migraines, weight gain, crazy mood swings, not sleeping for days at a time, irregular or completely vanished periods, joint pain, muscle weakness… The list is exhaustive and often entirely individual. 

But what most women living through Menopause agree on is that, without treatment, it’s just horrible. For more than a decade. 

Those treatments are, thankfully, widely available and for the most part, fantastic. You’ve probably heard women raving about the wonders of bHRT, and with good reason. And while it isn’t suitable for all women, if you’re lucky enough to be eligible, it could change your life. 

How? Well, bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, to give the treatment its full name, works by simply replacing the hormones you’re losing. Most commonly, that takes the form of bio-identical Estrogen and Progesterone.

If that sounds fairly simple, that’s because, on the surface at least, it is. The tricky part is getting the dose exactly right. Where regular synthetic HRT does a fantastic job, but in a generic way, bHRT has two main differences.

The first is that it can be individually tailored to your specific hormonal needs. The second? S&H’s bHRT is entirely plant-based, making it a more natural - and vegan - treatment option. 

But the absolute best thing about bHRT is its ability to improve Menopause symptoms. By redressing your individual hormone imbalance, it steadily removes the consequences of low Estrogen and Progesterone. 

Hot flashes? Gone. Night Sweats? Gone. Libido? Back. In fact, everything we mentioned earlier, from vaginal dryness and fatigue to bone density, memory loss, and painful sex can all be improved with the right dose of bHRT. And in most cases, the symptoms disappear almost entirely. It’s that good. 

But the best part? Crucially, bHRT also improves your mental health. Gone are the mood swings, panic episodes, and bursting into tears for no reason. We’re not saying you’ll never cry again, but it won’t be because that Amazon ad is on again.

Say goodbye to the cramps, pelvic pain, migraines, and exhaustion. And say hello to stopping Menopause symptoms in their tracks. S&H’s Menopause program individually tailors your bHRT treatment to your specific needs, transforming your symptoms in a matter of weeks. 

Our extensive blood panel tracks your hormone levels with repeat blood work every 6 months. This ensures that your bHRT is always working its hardest for you. And our clinician follow-ups are designed to review your progress and make sure someone who understands is handling your care.

Don’t let Menopause control your life. Talk to our specialists and free yourself from your hormones!
