The Day My Doctor And I Got Into A Screaming Match
OK, I'm exaggerating. We weren't really screaming – just 'raising our voices' a bit. I went to him to talk about my menopausal symptoms, and I have to admit they weren't nearly as severe as some of my women friends. Basically, I had two:
Weight gain – a LOT of weight
When I tried to talk with my doctor he didn't listen very long … then he reached for his prescription pad. He explained that I should take hormone pills for an extended time, the length of which was undetermined.
When I asked him if there weren't other alternatives he impatiently cut me off. I asked “awkward” questions like: how women survived menopause for thousands of years without hormones? the side effects of hormones? what these hormones would do to for my menopausal symptoms?
His annoyance grew to the point of an argument between us that grew louder and louder.
I left and never went back. And I started searching for answers of my own, answers that did not include adding artificial hormones to my body.
Meet Dr. Holly Lucille …
Then I “met” Dr. Holly Lucille. She is a “Beverly Hills” doctor who also entered Hormone Hell. She says, “I had to hit 175 pounds and watch my own energy and sex drive hit the wall before I did something about it.”
My question: ONLY 175? I outdid you (past tense!) Dr. Holly!

What Dr. Holly said made total sense to me.
The solution is to restore your hormones, not “replace” them.
Band Aid Menopause Drugs
Dr. Holly calls the various drugs prescribed for menopause “band aid drugs” because they treat symptoms but they don't really take care of the cause!
It took a decade of research, and one year of working with fellow health professional Jon Benson, to develop a 100% GUARANTEED solution to this problem — one that works to restore hormones, boost them higher using natural methods, and, if you are on HRT, supplement your life with specific nutrients to help keep you safe.
Here are some of the valuable clues I gained from Dr. Holly:
The real, absolute, without-a-doubt cause of nearly all your symptoms—and how to get rid of them, make you feel better, and radically boost your mental, emotional, and physical health—all at the same time
Why 95% of doctors never treat this hormonally-based cause—and why you still feel bad and have down-right dangerous side effects from all the drugs and “happy pills” they keep giving you
A top-to-bottom, “treat the cause” Solution that's proven, tested in clinics and the real world, and based in fact and medicine that's been successful for thousands of years
Throw away those expensive and dangerous drugs in favor of less expensive natural options … or, if you use HRT, discover the 5 things you absolutely must know to help ensure your safety
Remember what it's like to be sexually on fire instead of “burning up” from hot flashes and night sweats
Put an end to the psychological damage you are experiencing by feeling “old”, “not sexy”, or “used up” — and how to use this time to achieve greater respect, love, nurturing, and honor
Eat simply, deliciously and successfully … and uncover the hidden foods that help cause your problems
The “mother of all hormones” — and why your doctor may be killing you by lowering it
What is really causing your weight gain, and how you can shed the pounds naturally and permanently
The “smear campaigns” that drive you away from alternatives that are cheaper, safer, and more effective
