Menopausal Women Who ‘Know It All’ Are Not Invited To Read This Page

I treat a lot of menopausal women.

In fact, I consider myself a specialist in that area.

Hot flashes…Night sweats…Depression…Anxiety…Weight gain…Mood swings. They can all be fixed without ever using hormones.

I know, because that is what I do in my office week in and week out.

In my office menopausal women generally fall into one of two categories:

1. They either do not want to touch hormone treatments (synthetic or bioidentical) because of the inherent risk of cancer, and instead want to balance their hormones naturally.


2. They cannot use hormone treatments because they already have a history of hormone sensitive cancer (breast, ovarian, uterine, or cervical), or a family history, and want natural solutions that are safe and effective.

Cancer is a concern for many women, especially the cancers related to hormones – breast, ovarian, uterine, and cervical.

In my own family my mom’s mother died of breast cancer in her 40’s, leaving behind a husband and four young girls. A few short years from now I will be outliving her! So be sure I have cancer concerns on my mind, too!!

If you’re like most menopausal women, you want to have more control over your health, especially your hormonal health, want to live a long and healthy life, and this includes using proven cancer prevention strategies whenever possible.

Fortunately for you, there is a test for that.

There is one very important number you need to know if you want to minimize your risk for cancer.

It’s actually a blood test that I talk about all the time, and is rarely done by medical doctors (don’t even get me started on THAT).

It’s a simple vitamin D test.


I know, I know, you are probably already taking vitamin D. Great!

But, if you’ve never been tested, how do you know if you’re taking enough?

You don’t!

The cancer protective effects of vitamin D start when your levels get above 100 nmol/L, and ideally above 125 nmol/L.

Again, unless you test, you may be getting little to no benefit from your D supplement.

To your good health!
