Did you know that most women spend half of their lives with less than optimal hormone levels? Knowing what to do about your hormones as you get older can be confusing. On one hand many docs will tell you there's nothing you can do while others say it's all about optimizing hormones. Who do you believe? What do you do? Dr. Pamela W. Smith has been a doctor for over 48 years and the majority of that time has been spent helping women optimize their hormones. She just released the 2nd edition of her book "What You Must Know About Women's Hormones", a tell all guide for women to understand their hormones better to make informed choices when it comes to hormone health.
