How long is your menopause?
Although everybody has different menopause, it is a long transition which lasts about 5 - 10 years.
How long are menopause treatments?
After the Women's Health Initiative study in 2002, it is sure that hormones cause cancers. Nowadays, in order to reduce menopause symptoms, doctors suggest the lowest doses and the shortest time of hormone treatments. This shortest time is at least two years on synthetic or bio-identical hormones.
What causes menopause?
Doctors tell you that menopause is caused by estrogen deficiency. It is wrong! Menopause is the end of your childbearing years, so the body does not need high levels of estrogen any more. Ironically, high levels of estrogen will cause cancers after childbearing years, because the main function for estrogen is to stimulate breast and uterine tissue growth during puberty and pregnancy. Of course, estrogen will stimulate breast and uterine tissues too, if your body has high levels of estrogen after menopause.
In fact, menopause is caused by fluctuating hormones. A woman has two fluctuating hormone transitions: puberty - the beginning of menstruation, and menopause - the end of menstruation. Just like a car starting and stopping, it can be a little rough. No wonder you get irregular periods during puberty and menopause.
Obviously, the best solution for a problem is to solve its cause. Since menopause is caused by fluctuating hormones, not estrogen deficiency, the best treatment for menopause is to balance the ebbs and flows of hormones, instead of adding synthetic or bio-identical hormones.
Temporarily, all hormones treatments for menopause mask daily symptoms without addressing the underlying cause - your fluctuating hormones. Therefore, you have to take hormones for many years. Eventually, the body can manage to reach its new peaceful hormone levels in 5 - 10 years, even if you do not take any hormones. So, either synthetic or bio-identical hormones improve your quality of life by masking your daily menopause symptoms during the long menopause journey. However, you have to take high risks: cancers.
Uniquely, a cool herbal formula Menopause BalanZ addresses the underlying causes by balancing your fluctuating hormones, so it can float you through the whole menopause transition in 6 months.
How can herbs possibly provide a balancing effect on your hormonal fluctuations?
Studies have shown that many herbs have a balancing or buffering effect on the body. Herbs can maintain your hormones in a health range: when your estrogen levels are low, the herbs will promote estrogen production. However, when your estrogen levels are too high; they will block its production? Herbs regulate hormone production by feedback loops. Just like market feedback, if the storage of a product is low in warehouse, the company will produce more. If it is high, the company will not produce it at the moment.
In fact, vegetables have the balancing effect too. Since cancers are caused by over-stimulating body systems, this is why eating more vegetables can reduce cancer risks and all other health problems. Remember that every mom says: "Eat your vegetables!"?
In short, hormones are for making symptoms; cool herbs are for solving problems.
