Today is the first in our Healthy You series, four episodes in October to help you feel your best through the transitions and changes that can happen in life over 40 and beyond.

We’re just about 90 days out from the new year. Let’s not move feeling good to the back burner and leave it for 2020. Now is the time.

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Liz Lyster about all things hormones. 

So you think you understand the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapy, huh? Yup, so did I.

Until I met Dr. Liz Lyster.

Dr. Liz shares her years of expertise in treating many women (and men) through hormonal changes, including menopause and peri-menopause. Trust me when I say, I didn't know what I didn't know about the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy. This was a hugely enlightening conversation for me and I'm confident it can help you too. 

Dr. Liz answers:

How do I know if I'm in menopause?

What is happening to my body?

How long does peri-menopause last?

How long can I take hormone replacement?

Can hormone replacement therapy cause cancer?
