Estrogen protects your heart.

After you listen to this interview with Dr. Bal Pawa about your heart health, you will stop thinking of hot flashes as a nuisance, and you will start thinking of hot flashes and night sweats as a tap on the shoulder from your body that it needs something. What does it need? It needs you to invest in your hormone balance.

If you only do one thing today, listen to this important information. When I say "investing in women's midlife health is the single most important thing we can do to change the health of the world," this is what I'm talking about.

Heart disease and stroke is the #1 cause of premature death in women. We (you, me, the women you are going to share this video with)...we all are standing at the window of opportunity to do something today to change this statistic.

Have a listen and let me know your thoughts:
