October is World Menopause Awareness Month, a time to demystify menopause, take a closer look at some of its impacts, and highlight the best treatment options for women experiencing this natural decline in reproductive hormones. While the entire month is dedicated to menopause awareness, October 18th is the day set aside by the International Menopause Society to focus on a specific theme.
This year’s World Menopause Day theme is “Cognition and Mood.”
The National Institutes of Health reports that between 44 and 66 percent of women experience cognitive decline during menopause. A rather broad term, “cognitive decline” includes memory and concentration problems and reduced executive functions such as self-monitoring, emotional control, planning and time management, and impulse control. Fortunately, these symptoms tend to be significantly lower in postmenopausal women. However, the duration of menopause is seven to 14 years, which can make its symptoms seem like a never-ending struggle.
But menopause needn’t be a struggle. Several safe and effective treatment options are readily available to women experiencing its symptoms.
Treating Symptoms and Restoring Comfort
At Pellecome®, our team of health and wellness professionals has spent decades researching and developing natural solutions for women experiencing hormone-related issues, such as menopause. As a result, we have created a comprehensive line of products, including bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), that can be used to improve cognitive function while addressing other symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, chronic fatigue, and vaginal dryness. These treatments may also address muscle loss, diminished bone density, and weight gain, making them ideal for women experiencing hormone-related difficulties at any stage of life.
In addition to BHRT, we offer supplements designed to support women experiencing menopause. This includes formulations that can assist with hormone-related depression, anxiety, and cognitive decline, along with many of the other menopausal symptoms. Some of our most popular options include:
- DHEA, Vitamins D3, and K2
- Diindolylmethane Indole-3-carbinol(DIM I3C)
- Peptide supplements
The best way to learn which of these may be ideal for your specific concerns is through a consultation with one of our authorized providers.
We are proud to work with healthcare professionals who are dedicated to women’s health and committed to providing naturally effective solutions for hormone-related issues. If you are currently experiencing menopause, October is an excellent time to take action.
