You don’t have to be an AARP card holder to go through the “change”. With the endocrine disruptors found in pesticides, plastics, and preservatives, no wonder women are going through menopause in their 40’s and girls having periods before the 4th grade. There are ways to “maximize on minimizing” symptoms of hormonal upset using food, mind calming and “cool” activity. Learn about how to eat right, read labels, and know which blogs to believe in this informative talk about life. Dr. Ric Saguil with First Health Associates will guide you through a 60 minute information journey on the symptoms, work up and treatment of hot flashes.
