As women, reaching a certain age means undergoing the natural change that is menopause. And the hormonal changes that occur can cause substantial symptoms (such as hot flashes and night sweats), as well as an increase in weight gain, heart disease, bone fractures, and vaginal symptoms. And, of course, a debate continues over the possibility that hormone replacement therapy increases our risk for breast cancer. What is a woman to do?
In this class, presented by Dr. Laura Varich, a certified lifestyle medicine physician, you will learn more about how the latest medical research can guide you in decreasing perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms while also decreasing the associated disease risk through lifestyle and nutrition. Dr. Varich will help you reach a goal of moving healthfully into your post-menopausal years. You will sample some recommended foods and discuss how to easily incorporate them into your diet.
This program is presented by Dr. Laura Varich and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
