Q: Please describe your services.
"The MercyOne Comfort Health Center, home to the only North American Menopause Society certified physicians in Des Moines, combines traditional and complementary services for menopause symptoms, pelvic health and disorders, and osteoporosis prevention."
Q: Is there anything else you think folks should know about your business?
"As we anticipate the return of cooler weather and our favorite fall activities, are you struggling with night sweats or hot flashes? September is Menopause Awareness Month. The physicians at the MercyOne Comfort Health Center for Women want you to know that during and before menopause, 80% of women will experience hot flashes and/or night sweats. These symptoms can be distressing and often interfere with sleep. As a result, women notice changes in mood and mental sharpness that are equally bothersome.
Although the menopause transition is temporary, for some women, these symptoms are severe, prolonged and affect quality of life. Discuss these symptoms with your doctor or consult our North American Menopause Society (NAMS) Certified Menopause Practitioners to determine how to best manage your journey through perimenopause and menopause. Although achieving optimal mental and physical health requires individualized solutions, check out this list of suggestions that have been helpful for many women.
