  Perimenopause, Menopause, and Andropause It’s Hard Enough Without A Pandemic
By Dr. Donna Becker
With faltering or sudden lack of hormones, people may suffer anxiety, inability to think clearly with lack of focus, and even depression. Perimenopause may be characterized as waxing and waning hormones. People commonly say, “I don’t feel like myself”. Now, we have the social isolation, inability to travel, and maybe job and money insecurity. Add on weather and civil unrest, these are truly “Interesting times”.
More than ever, we need to be mentally and physically strong. Our brains have to be given optimal nutrition and our bodies need to physically work out every day. Restoration of hormones to youthful levels, I believe, helps us to handle the challenges we are all facing.
About 20 + yrs ago, I remember working in the ER downtown when I collapsed in tears with a sobbing frail, little man who had lost his wife. “She’s all I have!” he said. I had worked in Chicago in residency and seen terrible, unspeakable things which had made me sad, but I always handled it. That night, the charge nurse, actually took my arm and ushered me out of the room, “Are you Ok?”, knowing I was NOT.
Racked with insomnia, hot flashes, night sweats, I often cried in my car driving home after a shift, but until that day, I had never broken down in public.
I had seen an infomercial about anti- aging in another state, so I made an appointment. Itwasincrediblylifechanging. Almost immediately, I became calmer, able to sleep, and hot flashes and night sweats evaporated in about a week. I was drinking shakes, working out, taking supplements. I knew I had found my mission for the second 50 years of my life-to help others as I had been miraculously helped. I read and
studied, every year posting thousands of dollars in continuing medical education to the IRS.
You must be strong for these tumultuous times, more resilient, more positive,moreenergeticthanever. Iprovide comprehensive labs, nutrition analysis, targeted special exams like heart scans, and genetic testing.
