I needed to attend a new type of conference for doctors that was different than anything I’d attended before. It was at this same new specialty of medicine called Anti-Aging Medicine, where my Mom's doctor had further training, and learned about bioidentical hormones.
Today most people know it as “Functional Medicine”.
And sure enough, THAT'S where it all came together! Hormone Balance, Neurotransmitter Balance, Leaky GUT disorder, Adrenal Fatigue and so much more!
After all the training I had already gone through in medical school, I had not had a single lesson about hormone imbalances, let alone all of the other things that I discovered at the American Academy of AntiAging! In fact, at the conference, we were told that our conventional colleagues didn't even recognize Leaky GUT and Adrenal Fatigue as real conditions! (Well they are sure eating their hats today!)
In fact, we had very little teachings about the changes that occurr before menopause at all! OR that the symptoms that I was experiencing could even be related to hormones.
