Ageless/Anti Aging Treatment
Menopause and Perimenopause
Menopause, in simple words, can be defined as the absence of menstrual periods for a period of 1 year. This period comes in the life of every woman wherein the function of the ovaries ceases. The entire menopause process does not occur overnight, but instead is a gradual process. This period is also called perimenopausal transition period and is a different experience for each woman.
Most women experience menopause around the age of 50; however, the body of every woman has its own timeline. Some women stop having periods in their mid 40s while others continue well into their 50s. Menopause can be termed as a natural part of growing older. Unless the symptoms associated with it bother you, there is no need to undergo any treatment. However, the more you learn about menopause, the better it's for you as you can stay as healthy as possible during this new phase of your life by understanding what to anticipate.
Perimenopause can be termed as the process of change that leads up to menopause. This process can begin as early as your late 30s or as late as your early 50s. Many aren't sure about the time till which it lasts but the general belief is that it lasts from 2 to 8 years. It's very likely that you could have irregular periods or other symptoms during this time.
Physical symptoms during this phase may include:

There are two ways of treating menopause and perimenopause:
- The first way is to treat each and every treatment as per the requirement, i.e. taking supplements for osteoporosis, antidepressants for depression and herbs or medication for hot flashes.
- The next way is to directly treat the root cause, i.e. low hormonal levels with the use of HRT (hormone replacement therapy)
- Synthetic HRT- Synthetic HRT is mainly derived from pregnant horses are available in the form of pills. It provides quite beneficial effects, however, at times lead to some side effects due to which many people prefer to avoid it.
- Bio- identical HRT- When compared with Synthetic HRT, this is quite superior as far as safety and benefits are concerned. These are natural hormones same as the body's own hormones and are derived from vegetables and plants. These are quite safe to use and are available in the form of cream.
These creams are considered to be extremely safe and have been in use for more than 20 years. Also, these creams have been in most demand as several film personalities have use them due to their secret anti-aging formula. The symptoms and the expectations from the treatment determines the time span which differs from a few months to few years.
Many people make use of these creams for years so as to maintain soft skin, sharp minds, strong bones, great figures and above all healthy heart. If you want not only to successfully deal with your mood swings but at times from surgery such as hysterectomy, then you need to balance the hormones by bio-identical HRT.
Andropause can mainly be defined as the psychological and physiological changes that go with the aging process. This is more commonly called ADAM syndrome or androgen deficiency of aging male. The decline in the levels of testosterone is the main cause of andropause and it usually starts in mid 40s.
Andropause can be determined by going through the complete history, physical examination, and by using laboratory biomarkers and nutrient levels. The main aim of the therapy are:

IV Nutritional Therapy
The use of vitamins is immense in our life and IV nutritional therapy is the process wherein minerals, vitamins and nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous line. This is the most efficient way to administer any medication or compound. The fact goes that ingesting vitamins even with a healthy intestinal tract only allows for 10 to 25% absorption of minerals, nutrients and vitamins. Further, once absorbed, the liver processes and destroys several of the orally ingested vitamins in a process known as 'first pass metabolism'.
Nutritional therapy has another major advantage and that is several of the nutrients humans need only reach their peak effect at extremely high blood concentrations.
Conditions which improve with IV or IM therapies include but not limited to:
- Post operative recovery from surgical repairs
- Athletes who need performance enhancement and quick recovery from injuries
