“Mood swings” occur when a person’s mood changes swiftly from happiness to anger or sadness and vice versa. The swing is usually an inappropriate response triggered by an event or circumstance.
Mood swings are a common and well-known symptom of menopause, and are understood to be directly related to hormone imbalance. Fortunately, that imbalance is easily fixed through hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Hormone replacement therapy is a safe and effective way to eliminate menopausal mood swings. Contact us to meet a physician and get started today.
What Causes Mood Swings During Menopause?
Menopausal mood swings and hormone levels are closely related. Hormone imbalances associated with perimenopause and menopause can cause symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, and chronic fatigue syndrome, which can all indirectly contribute to mood swings.
But during menopause, the hormones that regulate emotions also intensely fluctuate. The rate of production of estrogen, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, largely determines the rate of production the hormone serotonin, which regulates mood. This can also cause mood swings.
Do Menopausal Mood Swing Treatments Work?
Hormone replacement therapy targeting mood swings during menopause addresses the root cause of mood swings: the imbalance of estrogen in the body. It is by far the most effective medical treatment for menopausal mood swings.
Hormone therapy by Global Life Rejuvenation involves the monitoring and regulation of estrogen and other hormone levels to keep them within a desirable and healthy range. HRT coupled with a customized supplement and fitness plan offer the best natural treatment for mood swings in women going through menopause.
Is HRT Safe?
It’s important to remember that even though it’s called hormone replacement therapy, we never replace someone’s hormone level to what they had when they were younger. Our process is to give a very small amount of hormones to alleviate symptoms and make people feel better.
HRT is completely safe if taken for the right reasons and under the guidance of a regular practitioner. You may have heard of archaic studies saying that HRT increased the risk of heart disease, cancer, or other maladies. These studies were mishandled and were proven false and in many cases, HRT improved cardiovascular health. Global Life Rejuvenation doesn’t want anyone to suffer from unnecessary symptoms of aging when there’s a much better option available.
