Dr. Oz explains what those shifting hormones do in this short clip.
I found it especially interesting that he calls progesterone “The Valium of the brain.” He says it’s the drop in progesterone levels that causes menopausal grumpiness.
His suggestion for the woes of menopause? Bioidentical hormones, which I hope to have a guest post about before long. The newscaster, who certainly looks too young to be going through the Great Pause, takes them and loves them.
Dr. Oz reports that bioidentical hormones are concocted from yams.
How clever is that? Not only do they make great casseroles, but they’re a balm for menopause.
If you’ve had any experience with bioidenticals, do chime in. Thanks!
