He mentions, “When my wife had surgery that threw her into early menopause only months after a study inaccurately stated that estrogen increased the risk of breast cancer and heart disease, I switched from being one of the world’s leading fertility experts to helping her figure out if estrogen was safe for her to take. I realized how important it is to take an active role in your healthcare. My goal is to share the wisdom I’ve gained from years of research and interviewing other top doctors who do research as editor of The Hot Years magazine, and make information easy to understand and to use so that you can become a member of your healthcare team.” You can follow Dr, Mache on twitter @DrMacheSeibel and on Facebook at MyMenopauseMagazine.
