Recently I attended the Women’s Hormone/Menopause and Perimenopause Boot Camp held by Tori Hudson, ND. She’s an author and leader in the field of natural medicine and women’s health. This was the second time in five years that I had in five years of studying women’s health with the numerous speakers Dr. Hudson invites to her 3-day conferences. I loved every minute of the weekend and am excited to share this knowledge with my patients!
During the boot camp, we learned extensively about:
- The latest scientific research on the benefit, safety and dosing of women’s hormones
- Updates in herbal support in women’s health (mental health, vasomotor symptoms, and more)
- Nutrition and lifestyle interventions that support a woman through the menopause transition and prevent long term issues of aging.
Not surprisingly, no two women’s menopause transition is alike. I appreciate the challenge of evaluating and managing each woman individually to achieve optimal results and peak health.
Many women begin to experience a variety of physical and mental-emotional symptoms long before they meet the definition of menopause. These changes that appear, usually from around age 40 to 51, are called perimenopause and can occur over as much as several years.
In menopause, as a doctor, we start to think about supporting cardiovascular health, bone health (osteopenia and osteoporosis), cognitive health (preventing mental decline) as well as sexual health and tissue support.
As your care provider, I am ready to help you through this challenging time, armed with the latest scientific updates to support you.
