Midlife Women’s Health
Midlife women’s health issues and symptoms prior to menopause are common and may include heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular menstrual bleeding, hot flushes, night sweats, broken sleep, irritability, low mood, abdominal bloating, skin rashes and itches, headaches, poor libido, gallbladder problems, aches and pains, recurrent UTIs, recurrent bacterial vaginosis and uro-genital problems. Incorporating her functional medicine training, Dr Hale can bring new understanding to the symptoms that women experience and what they may indicate in terms of hormone changes.
Classic menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, low mood, irritability and vaginal dryness are more straight forward in terms of the underlying causes and treatment options. Dr Hale specialises in tailoring diet, lifestyle, gut health program and hormone therapy to suit menopausal women at any age.
Our whole body-mind assessments for women include a thorough intake questionnaire, a detailed time-line history, and an expert examination. At the first consultation, Dr Hale will uncover vital clues about your underlying health status and will tailor the subsequent investigations as appropriate. With careful selection of tests and a thorough review of results, Dr Hale will devise the most suitable approach for YOU in terms of diet, lifestyle, medications, hormones and supplements.
