Menopause Symptom Relief

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 gain
  • 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

When the results of the tests have been reviewed, your practitioner will make recommendations for treatment.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
