“Outliving Your Ovaries”
is written by endocrinologist Dr. Marina
Johnson, medical director of The Institute of Endocrinology and
Preventive Medicine. Dr. Johnson, a pharmacist and a physician,
describes a wide body of research showing that pharmaceutical
topical bioidentical hormones are safer than the most commonly
prescribed hormones. In her book, she gives poignant, clinical
stories from her 30 years of clinical experience during which she
has managed over 100,000 female patient visits. These stories
depict the tragic consequences of estrogen deficiency and the
joy of transformation that occurs when a woman is made whole
again. This Book helps a woman evaluate the risks and benefits
of HRT in clear, easy-to-understand terms so she can better work
with her own physician to determine what’s right for her.
Dr. Marina Johnson presents her breakthrough research at the
Cleveland Heartlab on September 15, 2011 to Physicians
around the world!
It’s been estimated that 6000 women in the U.S. become menopausal
every day. That is four women every minute. According to the US Census
statistics, 50 million women are expected to be menopausal by the year
2020. In spite of these vast numbers, because every woman goes through
menopause, it is often not even considered a medical problem. Fewer than
20 percent of American post-menopausal women take hormones. Of those
women given prescriptions for hormones, half of them discontinue therapy
after the first year.
What is the risk of NOT taking Estrogen?
Estrogen deficiency is associated with increases in heart disease,
Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis and many other medical conditions
that markedly affect both the quality and quantity of a woman’s life.
Why do women deny themselves the benefits of hormones?
Dr. Johnson contends it is fear and misinformation. While there are
some risks from estrogen, it’s important to emphasize there are more
risks from NOT taking estrogen. Heart disease kills more women
each year (352,000) than the next 16 causes of death combined,
including diabetes, all forms of cancer, AIDS and accidents.
