Hello. I'm 50 years of age and interested in how can I maintain healthy estrogen level without hormonal replacement therapy?

Hello. I'm 50 years of age and interested in how can I maintain healthy estrogen level without hormonal replacement therapy?

Clarify: Hi. Once you go through menopause, your estrogen levels will plummet, but not go to zero. That is biologically natural, so by definition, the "healthy estrogen level".

Many docs feel that hormone replacement risks outweigh benefits. ...Read more

If I'm having trouble loosing weight, is there a hormone responsible for that?

If I'm having trouble loosing weight, is there a hormone responsible for that?

Yes and no: Hormones all play a role in our bodies homeostasis or equilibrium. Weight regulation is a part of that.
