News & Updates

Perimenopause, menstrual cycle issues, polycystic ovarian syndrome, osteoporosis, and symptomatic menopause are the root causes of many of common health concerns among women. In spite of this, most women do not have access to easy-to-understand, accurate information. This lack of scientific information causes women to mistake the normal hormonal changes in their bodies for illness, to be unaware of simple things they can do to help themselves, and uncertain about when to seek medical specialist assistance.

Given plain language information, a woman can work in better partnership with her health care provider, and learn to cope with the hormonal changes that occur across her lifespan. For women as a whole, this translates to less need for surgery, fewer doctor visits, fewer medications to buy, and most importantly, improved quality of life.
