Estrogen and Coping With Menopause
First, a case study: Three years after menopause, one woman still suffers from hot flashes, anxiety, infections, and insomnia. Dr. DeOrio offers the homeopathic perspective, suggesting that the trouble is liver jang rising, which can disrupt the spirit. Dr. Goldberg scoffs at this diagnosis, opting instead for short-term use of estrogens. But estrogens do have some potential side effects, which is precisely why Dr. DeOrio prefers holistic treatments. Watch the debate and make your own call.
