Menopause Symptom Relief

A happy woman who got rid of menopause symptoms thanks to our alternative therapies

Very often the only facts that a woman knows about menopause in advance is that one day her menstrual cycle will cease, her child bearing years will be over and she may get some ”hot flashes”.

As the number of women entering menopause increases, about 4000 new women entering menopause each day, according to the North American Menopause Society, the number of questions about menopause also increases.

Most women can name five or six of the best-known menopause symptoms but very few are aware that there are officially 35 symptoms. Additionally, these symptoms are often experienced during the perimenopause phase as hormone levels start to change and decrease.

These are:

  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Feelings of dread and doom
  • Incontinence
  • Increased tension in muscles
  • Indigestion
  • Flatulence
  • Nausea
  • Exacerbation of existing conditions
  • Changes in body odor
  • Gum problems
  • Increased bleeding
  • Softer, weaker fingernails
  • Weight gainents
  • Energy loss
  • Loss of libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Itchy, crawly skin
  • Breast tenderness
  • Sudden bouts of bloat
  • Increased allergic reactions
  • Electric shock sensation under the skin
  • Burning tongue and change in breath odor
  • Tinnitus: ringing in ears
  • Insomnia
  • Thinning hair
  • Irregular periods
  • Anxiety
  • Lapses of memory
  • Aching joints and muscles
  • Increase in headache
  • Depression
  • Dizziness and light-headedness
  • Tingling in the extremities
  • Osteoporosis

At our Clearwater clinic the practitioners understand that menopause can be a time of agony for women. The first step in treatment is to offer a number of tests which provide your healthcare practitioner with a full analysis of your hormone levels.

When the results of the tests have been reviewed, your practitioner will make recommendations for treatment. LifeWorks has been helping Tampa Bay women improve their health and resolve the symptoms of menopause since 1997 with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy – natural hormone replacement therapy, and other natural solutions. We can help you too. Call (727) 466-6789 for an appointment.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
