In this week’s episode, three powerhouses in regenerative and functional medicine: Dr. Elizabeth Yurth, Dr. Erika Schwartz, and Dr. Suzanne Turner, join me for a jam pack session of insights on women’s hormones. We take on the topic of managing hormones as they move into and through menopause. Doing so can protect your health, your vitality, your longevity, your mood as well as how you look and feel. We talk about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and bust some of the harmful myths that have been perpetuated about it. Whether you are a woman going through this important transition yourself or, have someone in your life who is, you owe it to yourself and the people around you to get educated about this.
