Board certified Gynecologist and Integrative Medicine & Menopause Specialist, Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz joins to talk all things menopause! Dr. Suzanne defines menopause and shares its many signs and symptoms including hot flashes, weight gain, sleep disruption and more.  She reframes menopause as the “puberty of midlife” and urges listeners to focus on empowering themselves versus viewing menopause as a detriment to their worth. The conversation shifts to hormone replacement therapy, touching on testosterone pellets and the absence of science-based data to support use. Dr. Suzanne clarifies that she is a fan of hormone supplementation, which when used properly, is shown to have many positive benefits- including reducing risk of death, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, osteoporosis and more! The doctors emphasize the role of lifestyle and stress the importance of community in finding practically healthy ways to manage their symptoms. Dr. Suzanne reminds listeners to open themselves to being curious and to focus on moving their body, along with sharing several free and easy practices listeners can begin implementing today!
