TO HRT OR NOT TO HRT Part 2 Issue #36
Because there's yet to more to tell on this ever evolving issue….
Hello there, lovely readers.
I hope everyone is well and enjoying the last of these summer days. Or are they the last? Might this lovely (if sometimes a bit too hot) weather continue through to the Autumn? Hope so!
If you’re a regular reader of the newsletter, you’ll know that back in May this year I covered some of the newer developments in that much lauded solution to every mid-life woman’s health issues - HRT.
I know, sarcasm doesn’t transmit well over cyberspace, but you know what I mean. The “much-lauding” is going on in the media so I wanted to break down some of those myths that are being bandied about.
So, I introduced Dr Louise Newson who has become something of an authority on the subject of HRT and dedicates her time to helping women overcome this most destructive of life stages.
At the time, I gave you her details about the research she has been doing, but in the meantime she’s recorded a podcast with Zoe Science & Nutrition, which is an organisation run by clinicians and broadcasts the newest findings in the world of medical science.
The podcast, which was recorded about a year ago, contains some of the most recent studies on the benefits of HRT. And there really are quite a lot of benefits. Dr Louise outlines cutting edge research that has found that the benefits of HRT far outweigh the cons in that they found that HRT protects against a lot of diseases that affect us as we age. Things like diabetes, heart problems and the like.
If you want to hear for yourself, you can listen to the podcast here
As I frequently state, because each woman is different and I’m no way qualified to give medical advice, if you need advice about whether HRT is for you or not, please see your primary clinical care-giver for their professional expertise. They will know your medical history and you can discuss the pros and cons with them.
DOLLOP OF POSITIVITY
I know I said I was stopping publishing anything I found that put a bit more positivity into our lives, but this came across my radar, and it’s so basic but so powerful, I just wanted to share it with you. I can only imagine what positive changes might come into your life once you start implementing some of them.
I can’t claim finding this one. I’ve filched it from one of my Facebook connections - a lady called Pat Adams - who I don’t think is a subscriber to the newsletter. But, if you are reading this, Pat- I hope you don’t mind and thank you for posting such a profound graphic which just happened to hit my Facebook feed one day :)
So, that’s another wrap from me (don’t the weeks roll by so quickly?). The next issue of the newsletter will be on Tuesday 6th September.
Till then stay safe, well & strong
