In this week’s episode of Be HEALTHistic, Drs. Stephen and Drew Sinatra welcome back bestselling author, actress, entrepreneur, lecturer — and long-time friend — Suzanne Somers. We previously had Suzanne on the show to talk about her latest book, A New Way to Age, where she revealed that her top anti-aging secret was bioidentical hormone therapy. Today, we do a deep dive into bioidentical hormones, and ask Suzanne to share her experience and the different ways she supports her body as she ages. First, Suzanne explains the hormonal decline all menopausal women experience, and why the key to healthy aging is replacing what’s been lost. Then, Suzanne and the doctors discuss how cholesterol impacts hormone function, why knowing your Lp(a) level is important, and how targeted nutraceuticals can help you feel great as you age. Next, she points out common symptoms of hormonal imbalance, and Dr. Steve explains how it can affect cardiovascular health — especially in menopausal women. They talk about the positive effects of CoQ10, Suzanne talks about the use of bioidentical hormones and the amazing transformation that can happen, and finally, she shares her ultimate “pearl” of wisdom regarding hormone therapy.
