The recommendation that women mind their diet and exercise is good, but coming from an academic institution and a seriously funded study, it would be more useful for both doctors and women to be advised that the scientists already know that women who enter menopause early,be it from natural or surgical causes, are at highest risk of strokes and heart attacks (International Menopause Society proceedings-6/11).
As such the best way to protect these women is to start them on hormones as early as possible.
Taken by prescription under the care of an experienced and caring physician with bioidentical progesterone and testosterone along with diet and exercise is a more evolved and surer way to protect women.
If you read that article, do not fear. But do take some action and find a natural program to keep your hormones at the optimal levels. You can always contact my office for more information or to set up a consult (in person or over the phone/skype).
