“You take the face off of a really expensive watch and you have all those gears of different sizes, if those gears aren’t moving at their own speeds while depending on the other gears, its not going to tell the right time, and it doesn’t necessarily matter how small the gear is, it can still throw everything off.” (22:20)
“It is difficult sometimes to spend a 15-minute visit and really get deep with somebody, and thus because of that, harder means more time means ‘I am not going to deal with it’. That’s why they put you on a birth control pill.” (25:03)
“My personal belief is that hormone balance is a key to longevity, I do think it will help you live a more productive, longer life.” (34:02)
“If you don’t feel normal, if you don’t feel good for you, you know something is off, and women know their own bodies just like men do, don’t be minimized by the system and don’t be told that everything is fine if you don’t think it is fine.” (38:19)
