Quotes

“For women, we are much more reactive and much more sensitive, and because we get cycles we experience it much more than men do, the ups and downs. So if I can explain that to women, really have them understand what hormone is doing what, when and why, it really takes away from that ‘I think I’m crazy’.” (5:55)

“I am not about preventing menopause, that is true, it is what it is and it is going to happen, ladies, I am sorry, or not. But what I am against is when people say ‘just let it happen and don’t do anything’. And I am not willing to risk my mood, my brain, my bones, and my cardiovascular risks because this is natural.” (14:07)

“I have seen it, unfortunately, time after time really wreck a relationship when one person isn’t interested and doesn’t have the sex drive and the other person does. And it can be really damaging, so to know that we can work on this gives a lot of hope for couples.” (25:14)

“If you can’t get your blood sugar under control, you’ll never get your cortisol under control, because they go hand in hand.” (32:56)

“Your cortisol affects dopamine, your DHEA affects dopamine, your estrogen affects dopamine, and so you may not have a dopamine problem, you may have an estrogen problem, but they all tie into one another.” (39:09)
