Description

Aging comes with various life changes. In particular, women around the age of 50 can expect to tackle new profound effects on comfort, quality of life, and certain health risks. Normal vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, and heart palpitations) may be the most obvious manifestations of this part of the lifecycle, but it’s important to screen for other manifestations like changes in memory and focus, skin, and mood.

Cardiovascular and bone support are also important considerations. This protocol addresses some of the most important areas of support, but not all patients will need every formula in this protocol (and others may need additional targeted support).

Best practice includes family/personal medical history, risk factor assessment, and initial/follow-up measurement of biological markers through blood, saliva, or urine to enable tailored recommendations for a more individualized approach.
