Myth Busters: What You Thought You Knew About Perimenopause

  • Blog

Unfortunately, many women in today’s society are completely clueless when it comes to menopause, and some may not even have heard the term perimenopause. But the truth is that perimenopause is the part of the process that women experience the most changes and symptoms. Here are some myths about perimenopause that you need to know.

Myth: You can no longer get pregnant.

Although your estrogen levels are continuously decreasing during perimenopause, your body is still producing enough hormones to allow you to become pregnant.

Causes and Solutions for Male Pattern Baldness

  • Blog

If you have started to notice that your hair is thinning or not growing as thick as it once did, you might be concerned about the future of your appearance. There are a lot of hair loss solutions being marketed all the time, but most of them aren’t worth a penny. Here are the more common causes of male baldness and our available treatments to bring your hair back to a full head.

What is male pattern baldness, really?

Male pattern baldness is usually hereditary and caused by a decrease of androgens, a male sexual hormone.

Why Hormone Therapy Is Important for Men

  • Blog

Menopause used to be a taboo subject, but now it is talked about so much that even men know that women need hormones at a certain stage in life. But these same men don’t realize that hormones play an important role in their own physical and sexual health.

In fact, many men also experience a decrease in sexual hormones as they age. While some men can have high testosterone levels into their upper 70s, most men start to see a decline in this hormone starting in their 40s. The decrease might be slow at first, and you might not see it as a real problem for a decade or more after the symptoms first start.

Why Women Don’t Know About Perimenopause

  • Blog

Did your mother talk to you about perimenopause? Probably not. Most women currently going through perimenopause had mothers who just didn’t talk about feminine reproductive health. Their mothers didn’t tell them either, so they may not have had the information to give. 

Our mothers and grandmothers lived in a much different time — a time when women were supposed to be ashamed and tried to hide when they were on their period. It was a time when talking about anything related to sex or genitals was considered so taboo you couldn’t even talk about it privately with your daughter.

  • Blog

When you get a cold, your go-to home remedy is likely going to include orange juice. Vitamin C has long been known to boost the immune system and allow you to fight off minor illness and infections like the common cold, but there are a lot of arguments about the best way to get vitamin C and other nutrients that can improve the immune system’s performance. 

A great option is IV therapies. IV therapies work best for giving you a big dose of nutrients because they go directly into your bloodstream where the nutrients can be carried to needed areas of the body. If you take an oral vitamin supplement, you lose a lot of the benefit through the digestive process. Here are three IV therapies that you can get to boost your immune system.
