In today's episode with Dr. Deb Matthew, you’ll hear us take a deep dive into:

  1. What HRT and BHRT actually are, and what they do

  2. How Practitioners can assess and diagnose your hormone levels

  3. Why Breast Cancer isn’t the giant risk we think it is

  4. How taking HRT can change depending on whether you have a uterus

  5. Taking HRT after you’ve beaten breast cancer

Once upon a time, we were told that HRT was the best thing in the world. Then, in 2002, the Women’s Health Initiative Study was published and said that HRT led to more cases of Breast Cancer. Since then, practitioners and women have been in an uphill battle to demyth HRT and increase accessibility to appropriate hormonal care. In this episode, Dr. Deb Matthew helps us break these myths and gives us the truth. Dr. Matthew is known in the US as “The Happy Hormones Doctor”, and you may have seen her share her expertise on TV and radio shows. She’s renowned as a leader in her field of medicine, sitting on many American medical boards and presenting her research internationally.
