Today I’m going to be focusing on hormone replacement therapy because there’s been so much information in the media recently and I think it’s become a very confusing picture – maybe even more confusing than before. I just wanted to talk a little bit about the research to try and interpret it for you so that you can make a choice about whether you’re going to take HRT or not as you go through this transition known as the menopause.

Recently, a friend of a friend posted on Facebook that she feels she has been hit by a steamroller as her menopause arrived and that her doctor advised her to take HRT. She was asking her friends for their advice. One of her contacts and a friend of mine recommended that she got in touch with me for some expert advice as I pioneered a scientifically based non-drug approach to menopause, have written several books on the subject, and have been helping women overcome their symptoms for more than 20 years. In fact, over ninety per cent of women on our programme report being symptom-free within five months; I, therefore, felt qualified to offer help. What then followed on Facebook turned out to be incredibly insightful. Following her post, she was inundated with advice from friends who were offering ‘solutions’ and mostly warning her not to take HRT at all … Read More
