Risks & Benefits of Hormones in Menopause

So should you take hormones if you’re suffering?

Itís always good to start with safe, natural options like those described here. But if theyíre just not cutting it for you, talk to your doctor about whether bioidentical hormones might help. Do they have risks? Yes. But life is filled with risk and you canít live in fear. Every time you get in a car you take a risk, but you do it because it improves your quality of life.

Life is short. Itís important to feel vital.

But ultimately, itís totally your call. Check in with your intuition. Ask for Signs from the Universe. Listen to the voice of your Inner Pilot Light. Your internal compass will never steer you wrong.
