“Outliving Your Ovaries” is written by endocrinologist Dr. Marina Johnson, medical director of The Institute of Endocrinology and Preventive Medicine®. Dr. Johnson, a pharmacist and a physician, describes a wide body of research showing that pharmaceutical (not compounded) topical bioidentical hormones are safer than the most commonly prescribed hormones. In her book, she gives poignant, clinical stories from her 29 years of ongoing clinical experience during which she has managed over 100,000 female patient visits. These stories depict the tragic consequences of estrogen deficiency and the joy of transformation that occurs when a woman is made whole again. This Book helps a woman evaluate the risks and benefits of HRT in clear, easy-to-understand terms so she can better work with her own physician to determine what’s right for her.What is Dr. Johnson doing today?
