Natural Menopause Support
Gainesville, Florida

You can’t stop menopause. You can’t stop aging. But with good body support, you can make the transitions of menopause and aging more tolerable and graceful, which can translate into a more enjoyable life as well as ease of experience in and through menopause.


At Sundgren Chiropractic Health Clinic a wholistic perspective and approach are incorporated when working with a woman who is experiencing menopausal symptoms (and a man who is experiencing andropausal symptoms). A woman’s whole endocrine system is considered, from hypothalamus down to cellular utilization of hormones. From direct key players in the sex hormone axis like the hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal glands, and ovaries, to ancillary, but oh so important, players like the thyroid gland and uterus, your whole body health is considered and evaluated to determine where the greatest need is during the transitional period of menopause.


Here’s a a little known factoid: When a woman’s ovaries start to fade into the background, the supporting glands like the adrenal glands and thyroid gland often have to pick up the slack to keep the system operating at the previously established “status quo.” If the adrenal glands have been burned out, spent, or are just plain tuckered from too much stress or change in life (change is a HUGE factor, even good change), and if the thyroid gland has already been injured or stressed by the many goitrogenic chemicals in our environment (or a person’s lifestyle), then THAT’S when you start to see these underlying, already established but occult, problems pop out. Not to mention head trauma that can damage the hypothalamic-pituitary relationship, thus creating problems at the very beginning of the hormone cascade! So supporting a woman in and through menopause means not just looking at her estrogen and progesterone, but also means looking at all the other factors that can contribute to the challenges a woman faces as her ovarian function begins to sunset. And that’s what we do.


To support a woman transitioning in menopause, Sundgren Chiropractic Health Clinic uses whole food nutritional concentrates and herbal extractions from who we consider to be the best nutritional and herbal companies in the world: Standard Process and MediHerb. You can learn more about Standard Process and Mediherb here. In summary, we use Standard Process and MediHerb nutritional products because of their wholistic nature (versus synthetic and isolated chemicals), because of the wealth of knowledge behind their development, and quite frankly, because they work. We want our patients to get better, so we simply opt for the best there is when selecting our nutritional product partners.


If you’d like to support yourself naturally through menopause, especially if you want to avoid BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy), and you want a partner in that often challenging process, then we’d love to be that partner for you. You can read about our evaluation and treatment program services here. In addition to a traditional medical physician work up, specialty laboratory examinations such as Test Panels from DiagnosTechs can be used to provide further insights into your sex hormone and endocrine system health. We are here to work with you in a manner that is comfortable and effective for you. We are here to be your partner in building health.
