Becoming a mother is a profound experience that brings immense joy and fulfillment. However, the journey of motherhood also involves significant hormonal changes that can impact a woman's overall health and well-being. From the moment of conception to the postpartum period and beyond into menopause, the fluctuations in hormones can take a toll on a mother's physical, emotional, and mental health.

The transition to motherhood is a time of immense hormonal shifts. During pregnancy, a woman experiences significant changes to support the growth and development of the baby. Estrogen and progesterone play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy pregnancy. After childbirth, the sudden drop in hormone levels can lead to the infamous "baby blues" or even postpartum depression in some cases. These hormonal imbalances can affect a mother's ability to care for herself and her newborn.

Are you a candidate.png

With all the amazing benefits of Emsculpt Neo, people are anxious to get going on this non-invasive, fat-burning, muscle-building action! But be aware of conditions that might prevent you from being a good candidate for Emsculpt Neo:

1. Are you pregnant or breastfeeding? Emsculpt Neo treatment is not recommended for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and lactation can impact the efficacy and safety of the treatment. You can always do Emsculpt Neo once you've finished pregnancy and breastfeeding!

2. Do you have metal or electronic implants? Patients with metal or electronic implants( pacemakers, defibrillators, metal IUDs, neurostimulators, etc) are not suitable candidates for Emsculpt Neo. The electromagnetic energy used in the treatment may interfere with the functioning of these devices, posing a health risk.

With such exciting technology, you may be ready to schedule your Emsculpt Neo consult right away. It's important to know who is a good candidate for this body-contouring, muscle-building magic!

You are a good candidate if:

1. You are in good overall health. Candidates should not have underlying medical conditions. This includes active tumors and associated treatments for tumors. We recommend talking to your physician to determine if Emsculpt Neo is safe for you.

3. You're already committed to a healthy lifestyle. While Emsculpt Neo can help enhance muscle tone and reduce fat, maintaining long-term results requires a healthy...

Is it menopause?

Have you found yourself in front of a computer doing searches about menopause after enduring another night of hot flashes and little or no sleep? It's a common story we hear from women. We also hear statements such as:

Why am I so tired all the time?

It seems like I keep gaining weight. It's like my metabolism has just stopped working.

I've got this weird brain fog.

My hair is thinning and my skin feels so dry!

My emotions are all over the place.

I have awful vaginal dryness.

My breasts feel like they've deflated!

And according to the Mayo Clinic, all these symptoms are, indeed, symptoms of menopause. In the United States, the average age of menopause onset is 51 years of age. Some women experience menopause sooner while in their 40s. Women who reach menopause before the age of 40 are considered to have premature menopause. This is rare with only 1-2% of women experiencing early menopause.

Some suggest that the age of menstrual onset could help predict the age of menopause. Others suggest looking at family history.

Hormone therapy, often associated with menopausal symptom relief, actually holds valuable benefits for women before they even reach menopause. Hormonal imbalances can affect women at any stage of life, with symptoms like fatigue, mood swings, low libido, weight gain, and more. After having labs drawn and evaluated in our office, a customized hormone therapy is created for the patient under a physician's care.

Pellet therapy offers a precise and efficient solution for women here in Grand Junction. These tiny pellets are implanted under the skin and release a consistent dose of hormones, mimicking the body's natural hormone production. Because the molecular make-up of these hormones is just like the body's natural hormones, these pellets are bioidentical hormones and not synthetic hormones from a lab. This ensures optimal balance, leading to improved vitality, mood stability, increased energy levels, and reduced symptoms.

Regular lab work throughout the course of therapy plays a pivotal role. It allows our physician to assess hormone levels, identify...
