Episode Summary

Having a full buffet of options at your disposal during perimenopause and menopause is the best chance you will have of a successful hormonal transition. While I fully believe that we need to lean heavily on natural solutions like nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle rituals for optimal results and longevity, I also believe in being open to every tool available, including bioidentical hormones.

Take Control of Your Menopause

Your hormones are in charge when it comes to how your body functions throughout the day. While our reproductive needs may change as we get older, we still need those powerful chemical messengers to work so that we can continue to do the things we do for as long as possible and thrive while doing them. 

There are many natural solutions, including bioidentical hormones, which can help you leverage your health and alleviate even your worst menopause symptoms. All it takes is an understanding of what is best for your body and a willingness to try.

Suffering is Optional

While menopause is not optional for any of us, suffering is. Esther wants you to know that regardless of whether you decide to take hormones or not, you have options. By empowering yourself with the necessary knowledge and the right support system, you can explore every and all tools that are available to you. You have the power to take control of your menopause; all it takes is the right tools.

Equipping yourself with strategies and solutions can help you leverage your hormones and longevity before, during, and after menopause. By supporting your health and longevity through natural resources such as bioidentical hormones, you can enjoy this next chapter of your life rather than suffering through it.

“It is just absolutely unacceptable that 1.2 billion women are going to be in menopause by 2030, and there are no solutions other than the pill or an IUD? Are you kidding me?” (6:08)

“I always say the fountain of youth can be found in a steak and a set of dumbbells.” (18:04)

“When you meditate, you have to envision yourself as if you are already healthy. And then your mind will catch up.” (24:49)

“The point is, when you work on healing your body and set the intention, and do it twice, the healing process is twice… that also really can reverse where your body is at and bring your cortisol back to life and really support you that way.” (32:01)

“We don’t have to underestimate our power as women to change these systems and break them and build new ones that do serve us better.” (34:38)
