Menopause: A Holistic View
Menopause is a natural but sometimes troublesome transition. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a commonly prescribed treatment, but can also increase the risk of cancer, heart disease, and strokes. Dr. DeOrio prefers working from within an understanding of yin and yang and the need for reproductive balance. He recommends standardized herbal extracts, hormone supporting nutrients, homeopathic hormones, compounded bioidentical hormones, whole body vibration therapy, and acupuncture. For Dr. DeOrio, relief comes from treating the underlying root causes, not just the surface symptoms.
