April 12, 2023 - Episode #114 - See Ya Later Ovulator - The Controversy of Menopause Care with Ester Blum
I'm sick and tired of the medical gas lighting with women. Somehow, we have either normalized complete suffering or have made women feel like the symptoms they are experiencing is all in their head. And this is certainly in case in hormone health and menopause. Is this really just a phase of life that you have to suffer through for 8-10 years?? The answer is NO!! If you are concerned with hormone balance and want answers, today’s episode is just for you. Join me as I interview Hormone specialist Ester Blum. We discuss the literal hot topic of menopause and her new book See Ya Later Ovulator. You need to hear as we address the most controversial topics of hormone replacement therapy, birth control, bio identical hormones, lab testing, peri-menopause, getting to the root of the issue, why you can’t out hormone your lifestyle choices, supplementation and why menopause is not taught in medical school. You need to hear this!
It’s all today on the Healthy Harmony podcast.
