Hot flashes are a sudden, intense feeling of heat, usually centered on the face and upper body. They can last from just a few seconds to several minutes, and are often accompanied by an increase in heart rate, sweating, nausea, headache, dizziness, weakness and feelings of anxiety. Hot flashes may even create a suffocating feeling and often end with an equally sudden chill.
Hot flashes are an uncomfortable and inconvenient symptom of menopause. Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) treatment is available to help correct hormonal imbalances associated with perimenopause and menopause. HRT for women can be a safe and effective way to treat hot flashes.*
If a hormonal imbalance is the cause of your hot flashes, hormone replacement therapy may be the solution for you. Global Life Rejuvenation physicians have successfully used HRT to treat hot flashes.* Our experts administer and monitor personalized treatment plans that address the needs of each individual. Contact us to meet a physician and get started today.
The Role of Hormones in Hot Flashes
The most common cause of hot flashes in women is low levels of estrogen. Insufficient amounts of estrogen affect the hypothalamus, a part of the brain that controls body temperature, sleep, appetite, and sex drive.
Hormone imbalances alter the body’s “internal thermostat” – low estrogen levels fool the hypothalamus into believing that the body is too hot. The hypothalamus then triggers a dilation of the blood vessels near the skin to increase blood flow in an attempt to rid the body of excess heat.
Environmental, medicinal and nutritional factors may also contribute to the strength and frequency of hot flashes associated with menopause.
Hot Flashes Treatments Using HRT
You don’t have to accept the inconvenience and discomfort of hot flashes. HRT is a natural medical treatment that can address the cause of hot flashes in women.*
When you meet with a Global Life Rejuvenation physician, you will receive a comprehensive analysis of current hormone levels. Your physician will then create a customized solution programmed to try to stabilize the body’s hormones. Treatment plans include a customized nutrition, supplement and fitness program aimed at minimizing and preventing hot flashes as much as possible*.
Is HRT Safe?
It’s important to remember that even though it’s called hormone replacement therapy, the goal of this treatment is not to replace someone’s hormone level to once had. Our process is to give a very small amount of hormones to supplement or to help your body naturally produce hormones that it no longer makes as a result of aging. By doing this, we try to alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalance and help you feel better.*
HRT for women is completely safe when taken under the guidance of an expert practitioner. Among women, HRT has been shown in a clinical study by the Women’s Health Intiative (WHI) to prevent heart disease and osteoporosis, as well as, lower the risk of developing diabetes.* We don’t want anyone to suffer from unnecessary symptoms of menopause when there are other options out there.
