Menopause treatment can indeed reverse all of the above. However Peri-menopause can start in your 30's with PMDD, mood swings, or weight gain as prominent symptoms while you're still having regular periods. Bioidentical hormones might be the answer even if you are as young as 30!

The correct combination of estradiol/estriol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and in some cases; pregnenolone, thyroid hormones and HGH often work wonders. Many ailments such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol just to name a few, do normalize once the right combination and dosage of hormones is used.
A little known but important fact about hormone replacement therapy is that there are two types of hormones available for replacement therapy: Bioidentical hormones and Synthetic hormones. This is important because of side effects.
Bioidentical hormones are made from natural substances using a compounding process that results in an exact biological replica of the substance produced by our bodies. This is why they do not produce undesirable side effects when administered properly.
In contrast, synthetic hormones are synthesized from a variety of chemicals and, although these molecules resemble those produced by our bodies, they are not biologically identical replicas. As a result their use can result in very serious side effects, as evidenced not only by the warnings on the labels, but as also shown by research and clinical studies.
Furthermore, in addition to avoiding the risk of side effects and thus being safe, bioidenticals have been shown by most clinical studies to be protective when administered properly. Meanwhile, the latest studies are refuting prior claims that synthetic and bioidentical hormones are "the same."
I did specify "when administered properly" because hormone replacement therapy is a complex and delicate balancing act that needs to be individually tailored to each patient, often requiring a combination of hormones in conjunction with other mitigating "integratives."
This can only be accomplished by a physician who has specialized in this field. Unfortunately, too many physicians claim to be qualified after attending a few week-end seminars and the use of synthetic hormones is widespread.
This is a dangerous proposition so my advice to you is: make sure to do your homework, do some research and ask the right questions before choosing a genuinely "qualified" hormone replacement therapy physician.
