May 19, 2012
Hosted by Dr. Adam Rubinstein
As we age our hormone levels change leading to lots of changes to our bodies. Both men and women alike can see changes that may not be comfortable or wanted. There may be a way to keep some of these changes at bay: hormone replacement therapy. There has been a lot of buzz recently about bioidentical hormones. This week we will discuss hormone replacement therapy and the benefits of various ways to achieve better balance in your body. Joining us this week will be Dr. Victor Shabanah, a Board Certified Surgeon and Medical Director of AAG Health Clinic. He will share his experience and thoughts on hormone replacement therapy and the use of bioidentical hormones. Also joining the show will be Dr. Alvaro Gordo, board certified gynecologist who will offer his thoughts on HRT.
