More than 10 major medical organizations endorse hormone therapy as the best treatment for menopausal symptoms. Bioidentical hormone therapy is known to offer the safe and effective outcomes because of their structural match to human endogenous hormones.

I started trying to make other changes – eating smaller dinners and not eating right before bedtime – and within a few months I was able to cut back to one pill every other day.
if you eat less carbs you kill off the bacteria. I’ve given up on doctors although I see a specialist to have a fibroscopy every two years, just to make sure everything is OK in there! The diet is the only thing that has helped me, if I cheat I pay!
