Women entering their 40s begin a very powerful transition in their life. You have come so far and accomplished so much by this time! Embrace it!
Along with this achievement, women begin to experience symptoms related to the onset of perimenopause. We will go to our annual check up with questions for our doctor about these changes and we hear the words… Hormone Replacement Therapy.
So, is this what happens when I hit my 40s? Do I need to be replacing my hormones? My guest today walks us through the answers.
Dr. Ryan Shelton is a physician and researcher with vast experience and knowledge about hormones. He clarifies the benefits and explains what we, ourselves, can do to assist in slowing down the aging process.
The woman’s hormonal makeup works like a symphony, with many moving parts that go beyond estrogen and progesterone. Dr. Shelton discusses possible options including the differences between synthetic and bioidentical hormones so you can make the right decision for yourself.
