Menopause 101 February 06 2015

I found a product that got rid of my hot flashes and had to share.  It's called "Endo Code F" by Physica Energetics.  The girls at the health food store recommended sage pills but that didn't work for me.  According to Irene Gerber who does bio-calibration locally, Endo Code F is also great for mood swings.

I have been reading about bio-identical hormones in "The Wisdom of Menopause" by Dr. Christiane Northrup and have decided to give them a try as well.  The only medical doctor who tests for bio-identical hormones locally is Dr. Werner Fabian.  Medical doctors test your blood and it is covered by OHIP.  Naturopaths test your saliva which is said to be more accurate but unless you have insurance coverage through your work you will pay out of pocket.  Several of my clients swear by bio-identical hormones.

And just as a side note, I've heard great things about a pharmacist named Johnny Wong who helps women balance their hormones.  According to my clients he works out of a pharmacy in Alliston and one in Stroud.  So if you are in the Barrie area here's the link to his website:  http://allistonfamilypharmacy.com/?page_id=97
