Menopause Power Helps Women Understand How to Best Treat Menopause and Protect Health

Endocrinologist Explains Connection Between Hormones and the Numerous Health Problems Faced by Middle-Aged Women; Offers Solution That Restores Health and Slows Aging

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2012) - Women in middle age cope with health problems they did not face before the onset of menopause. Weight gain, low energy, high cholesterol, digestive problems, headaches, sleep disruption, allergies, and depression are just some of over 100 maladies for which millions of women seek ongoing medical care.

Diana Schwarzbein, M.D., renowned endocrinologist, best-selling author and women's health advocate, believes the treatment women typically receive for these problems are ineffective and often harmful. "In 99% of cases, these symptoms and conditions are caused or made worse by hormone imbalance," says Schwarzbein. "Because physicians don't realize this fact, they treat the problems independently, without treating the cause. Once menopause begins, women can no longer produce sufficient estrogen and progesterone, two hormones needed to maintain overall hormone balance and good health. Having a woman eat less and exercise more, actually makes her gain fat weight, increasing her risks for certain degenerative diseases. Prescribing a statin drug for her cholesterol, antacids for her heartburn, aspirin for her headaches, or giving her sleeping pills or antidepressants, simply masks the problem; it doesn't cure it."

Unless you properly address the hormone deficiency with hormone balancing therapy, the imbalance persists, the symptoms and problems continue, and you invite the degenerative diseases of aging, including heart disease (the number one killer of women), cancer, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's dementia, and stroke, Schwarzbein contends.

Schwarzbein cites well-established science and over two decades of experience treating thousands of women in menopause. "Once I rebalance a woman's hormones, her medical problems resolve," she says. "Women lose fat weight, start sleeping again, their cholesterol levels drop, anxiety, depression, and headaches go away, and they start feeling well again, without prescription drugs."

To help women understand how menopause affects their health, how to treat it correctly, and how to work with their doctors to do so, Schwarzbein created www.menopausepower.com, a web site with free articles and information, and a comprehensive course on DVD with a book that provide more detailed information. She is also encouraging the medical community to view and treat menopause differently.
