Hormones After Breast Cancer? It's Not What You Think
Hormones after breast cancer has always been a rigid no. For most. Not all. My guest today is not only a breast cancer survivor but a doctor and estrogen “think tank” participant. If you or someone you know has or has had breast cancer, this is a must.
She's in her 70s and you'd never know it. She's survived cancers and you'd never know it. Listen to her voice and you'll question whether she's really 70.
Dr. Berkson is one of the "mother's" of functional medicine, considered a thought leader in hormones and functional medicine. She has been teaching CMES: continuing medical education courses, for health care professionals like MDs and pharmacists for many decades. Recently in Utah she gave the first CME accredited class, it passed peer review, on how and why to prescribe hormones for breast cancer patients to 150 MDs and pharmacists. She had breast cancer 26 years ago and has been on cBHRT for 20 years.
She has an eBook on hormones for breast cancer survivors. She has 21 books out, many on hormones and is a best selling author. She was a scholar at an estrogen think tank working with the top scientists that discovered the estrogen receptors and profiling for breast cancer patients.
There is a lot of misinformation in doc's as well as patients. Don't miss out on protection and youth as you age. Let's get the facts straight from a doc and scientist that knows them.
Women have been told and believe that hormones cause cancer. Dr Berkson has a very different opinion and she's living evidence of the opposite.
Let’s blow this myth up and talk about pros and cons of hormone replacement.
