Female Hormones

Understanding female hormones, particularly regarding the aging cycle, is the topic of this video presentation. Much can be read in the popular press from time to time about the safety and types of therapy available. Often these articles take an opposite point of view to what we recently read which leads to more confusion. Dr. Rienstra gives us the basic information necessary to understand how the body uses the hormones. This information can help in making the decision of which is the best therapeutic approach.
Dear Viewer-
These videos date from 1999 or so.  Most of what I say here is
still true and relevant today, but as I look back at them now, I find minor errors and areas where we know somewhat more than we did back then.

After recording these with our local PTTV crew, one professional videographer told me that for $10,000 for a half-hour take, she could bring these up to commercial broadcast quality.  If you want to be our sponsor, call me!

In the meantime, look at these as background information, a resource to help you formulate questions for your doctor.
