Holiday Season Got You Feeling Blue?

The holiday season can be hard on all of us… the hustle and bustle, financial strain, stressful travel, strained family relationships can be a lot to manage.  Fortunately, there are solutions.

We all know antidepressants can treat the symptoms of depression, and work well for most people.  Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy has also been shown to treat symptoms of depression.  Menopausal women suffering from depression may find better results with BHRT than traditional antidepressant medications as BHRT is designed and compounded for each individual need.

Menopausal symptoms such as night sweats and insomnia lead to a lack of restful sleep, and the persistent fatigue can often lead to depression.  Untreated depression can increase the risk of developing cardiac issues and even osteoporosis.

BHRT restores hormone levels to normal.  Antidepressants work by boosting serotonin.  As estrogen is a natural serotonin booster, along with promoting good sleep, BHRT can sometimes help treat depression symptoms.
