The Winona Solution

Women hugging

If you’re approaching 40, odds are you’ve invested in at least one skin care product to prevent or reverse the signs of aging, placing your trust (and hard-earned dollars) in trending creams, moisturizers, and serums.

Well, good for you for treating yourself—you deserve it!  Self-care is one of the most important actions you can take to stay healthy and look beautiful as you age. 

But the truth is, the aging process actually begins internally—as hormone production begins to decline—years before the first wrinkle makes a surprise appearance on your face. 

Many younger women are caught completely off guard by any one of the many unpleasant symptoms associated with a hormonal imbalance:

  • Dry, itchy skin

  • Fine lines & wrinkles

  • Hot flashes

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Weight gain

  • Thinning hair

  • Joint pain

  • Body odor & more

100+ Symptoms Associated with Menopause

But it doesn't have to be that way!

There’s more to aging gracefully than slathering expensive lotions on your skin. Many life-interrupting symptoms associated with the menopause transition like fine lines, night sweats, and unwanted weight gain can be prevented proactively by balancing these hormones before changes occur.

What is hormonal imbalance?

Couple after argument

Essential for regulating most major bodily processes, hormones are chemicals produced by the glands in the endocrine system that travel through the bloodstream to the organs telling them what to do and when to do it. A hormone imbalance occurs when there is either too much or too little of one or more hormones and when those changes create a disruption in normal body functions. In fact, even the slightest disparity in levels can wreak havoc on the body from the inside out, causing major changes in the way you look and feel. 

Women who are still in their reproductive years experiencing the onset of symptoms normally associated with menopause, such as hot flashes and skin changes, may be caught off-guard and confused. 

While some hormonal imbalances are temporary and go away on their own, others are chronic and longer-lasting, requiring intervention.

How Winona Can Help

Middle-aged woman

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance can impact a younger woman’s life just as severely as they affect women in full-blown menopause. HRT is a safe and natural way to restore proper hormone levels using substances that are bioidentical to those produced naturally by the body. 

Winona offers customized and effective hormone replacement therapy (HRT),  prescribed by our doctors who specialize in hormonal imbalance and menopause and shipped directly to your door. The ability to meet virtually with our Winona physicians means you get the care you need without ever having to leave home.

By boosting hormone levels that naturally diminish with age, HRT is a physician-prescribed treatment that addresses the 100+ symptoms associated with the menopause transition.

Through innovative and scientific exploration over several years, our researchers have developed molecularly-identical, plant-based hormone treatments that effectively mimic those produced naturally in the body.

One-Size-Does-Not-Fit All Approach

Because every woman’s experience is unique, we don’t believe in taking a one-size-fits-all approach. We offer comprehensive and personalized HRT remedies, driven by each patient’s profile. Using a targeted, symptomatic approach, Winona’s team of board-certified physicians trained in menopause determine treatment plans and dosages specifically tailored to each patient’s needs.

Types of HRT

Estrogen Therapy

When estrogen decreases and begins to create symptoms, your doctor may suggest estrogen therapy to help replace it.

Progesterone Therapy

Like estrogen, progesterone is a female sex hormone that is produced in the ovaries. Progesterone therapy works by replenishing this hormone as it declines during menopause transition. 

Testosterone Therapy

Traditionally thought to be a male hormone, women also produce - and need - testosterone. Like estrogen and progesterone, testosterone also decreases during menopause, causing symptoms like low libido, brain fog, painful sex, fatigue, and weight gain.

Combination Therapy

A blend of estrogen and progesterone, combination therapy is a common therapy for women prescribed HRT for menopause symptoms.
