Thyroid Disorder Link to Breast Cancer

More than 21 million women in America suffer from thyroid dysfunction — and the chances are their doctors aren’t telling them it could be a precursor to breast cancer.

Natural For Women, Too

When women come to my practice feeling depressed, fatigued and uninterested in sex, they often have one thing in common… low testosterone. I get funny looks when I tell them that.

Biggest Skin Benefits From Telomeres

You already know that your telomeres are like a ticking biological clock. Each time your cells divide, a tiny bit of each telomere gets used up. Over time, these telomeres get shorter and shorter until your DNA can no longer make correct copies, and that cell stops working. This process happens slowly, and it makes […]
