How to Harness the Power of Women’s Hormones

The more you learn about women's hormones the more you know there is to know. This is an exciting time. As I like to say there's never be a more exciting time to be flipping 50. This is the first in a few episodes this month addressing women's hormones and perhaps flipping your thoughts on your future. 

Explore your choices, re-examine your current options, and combine lifestyle habits for the optimal aging you want, need, and deserve. 

I brought on one of the top women's hormone doctors and renowned speakers to share her insights with you. 

My Guest:

A committed trailblazer, Felice L. Gersh, M.D., works in integrative and holistic medicine, creating new paradigms in women's healthcare.

She is the Medical Director for the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, where she leads her team of dedicated holistic practitioners.

I took advantage of this opportunity to ask Dr Gersh about women's hormones research, her advice for staying healthy as you age, and her involvement in the Women's Hormone Network.
