What all women (and men) must know about menopause is that some of the most mistreated symptoms of menopause are hormone related mood swings, depression and anxiety. Dr. Laurie Blanscet, a hormone and anti-aging specialist, explains that most traditional practitioners don’t understand the role that hormones play in our moods. Instead of determining if hormones are the root cause for women (and men) presenting with anxiety and depression, most traditional practitioners simply grab the prescription pad for anti-depressants. According to a government study, nearly 1 out of 3 women in their 40s and 50s are taking an antidepressant. Tune in and learn how to take charge of your emotional health after 50!
