Have you been wondering if you possibly are entering menopause? This is a very common question for women. And some of these symptoms can start as early as your mid-30s. Dr. Arianna is passionate about educating women on the journey. Dr. Sholes-Douglas is recognized as a national leader in the field of perimenopause and menopause and the author of the best-selling book The Menopause Myth: What your mother, doctor, and friends haven’t shared about life after 35. Her passion for this topic is fueled by her own personal experience as an OB/GYN and her own personal experiences to help other women understand what’s happening during this time.
There’s no reason to suffer through menopause. Dr. Arianna realized on her own journey just how confusing perimenopause/menopause can be. There is a lot of information out there. But for the average woman she may still find herself confused about what the next steps are in this stage in her life. At Tula Wellness, we apply an integrative approach in the treatment of perimenopause/menopause. Dr. Arianna performs a full medical assessment evaluating previous medical history, medications, risk factors, nutrition, end lifestyle.
Start by completing a Tula Wellness medical intake form. After this form is completed you’ll be able to schedule a one-hour consultation with Dr. Arianna. At your first visit, she will review all of your symptoms and make recommendations for laboratory work.
