From the desk of Dr. Erika Schwartz,
Editor of Healthy Balance newsletter
It's time to be heard by a doctor who cares enough to listen.
But, if you don't mind, I'd rather not talk about "normal" healthcare stuff, like blood pressure or cholesterol levels . . .
I want to talk about the stuff your regular doctor doesn't have time for:
I want to talk about why you've gained 15 or more pounds and feel too "old" to do anything about it. It is a big deal — and there's an easy, natural way to treat it.
Your doctor probably doesn't seem to care. When you bring him your symptoms, he just says, "Sweetheart, you're getting old. What do you expect?"
He's not the only one. All of your friends and resources on the Internet say that the "middle-age spread" is common . . . normal . . . natural.
Well — to that I say phooey!
Here's the truth:
You can and should expect to feel alive and energetic — even sexy — because that's how thousands of women 50, 60, and even 70 years old feel right now!
Let me be very clear: Menopause does not have to ruin your life. You really can feel as radiant and energized as you did in your 30s.
Just imagine how your life would change if you could drop those extra pounds and keep them off, without a dramatic (even dangerous) change in your diet or exercise schedule.
Because it's not just about looking good. It's about being excited to go out in public with your friends . . . your husband . . . or just by yourself. It's being able to move freely, without effort or pain.
It's having the energy and ability to do the things you love, now that you have the time to do them.
It's about being healthy.
Being overweight, even obese, leads to osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke, diabetes, kidney disease, and other chronic diseases. (It even makes your other menopausal symptoms worse!)
And you shouldn't "just accept" the weight gain, because it can be so deadly.
You should fight back — and I'm going to show you the one very simple way to lose all the weight you've gained since age 40 . . . in just a minute.
I'm Dr. Erika Schwartz — and I'm thrilled to be here talking with you today.
It's my life's mission to bring balance and wellness to women just like you . . . and to help you take out a new lease on life, no matter your age.
Here are a few quick points about me . . .
Patients fly in from all over the world to see me. Some of them are celebrities, but most of my patients are normal, regular people just like you.
I'm not telling you all of this to boast. I'm telling you this so you know, without a doubt, that I'm qualified, experienced, and committed to helping you lose those unwanted pounds — gently and naturally — and ultimately revitalize your health so aging is no longer a nightmare.
And now . . . if you'll give me just a few minutes of your time . . . I'd like to show you this one simple trick I've been talking about.
The best part about this technique is that it doesn't just help you lose weight fast — it may even stop your other menopausal symptoms in their tracks.
I've used this technique to relieve over 15,000 patients of their worst symptoms . . . and you're just a few minutes away from the same results.
Let's start with the basics . . .
It all starts with your hormones.
Hormones are chemical messengers that control all your body's functions, including digestion, energy and metabolism, growth, reproduction, and of course your moods.
Right now, you have thousands of different hormones in your body, communicating with each of your organs to keep everything running in balance.
When it comes to menopausal weight gain, we're specifically interested in the sex hormones — estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. I like to call them "the Big 3."
When your hormones are in balance, you enjoy the optimal energy, fit figure, and general glow of a 25-year-old. When we reminisce about youth, we're really reminiscing about having balanced hormones!
But . . . it's a very delicate balance.
And when that balance begins to be disrupted (around age 35) we start to gain weight.
Believe it or not — it's not that piece of pizza you had or because you skipped your walk.
It's not your fault you can't lose weight. It's your hormones.
Let me explain . . .
Our country is famous for producing zillions of different diets, diet pills, weight loss programs, gym programs, and bizarre — even dangerous — forms of exercise.
You've probably lost a few pounds following one of those fads. But even the safe and clinically proven programs don't work, do they? Those pounds sneak right back on as soon as you return to "normal" living.
I know — it's incredibly frustrating! It's almost like something is hitting the "reset" button to your system.
Well, that "something" is your hormones.
Even the slightest hormone imbalance will reset your metabolism to slow, make you retain water, and grow fat cells around your belly and vital organs.
But when you get closer to — or past — menopause, you experience the ultimate injury to your hormone production. Your ovaries stop producing estrogen and testosterone and you stop ovulating. The loss of ovulation cuts off your progesterone production as well.
It's that injury that's been wreaking havoc on your body!
Low estrogen causes . . .
Low progesterone causes your cells to retain water like a camel's hump.
That is one huge reason for your weight gain — and the reason you can lose up to 15 pounds in just two weeks the moment your hormones are back in balance. (I'll tell you about that simple technique in just another minute.)
Low testosterone results in a loss of muscle strength and bone density, as well as depression, while allowing fat to build up instead. The result: a slow downward turn into the frail old woman you've always feared to become.
"Low T" is also responsible for many of the other unpleasant menopausal symptoms, like hot flashes, brain fog, and low sex drive. It's not only the scourge of men, it affects women as well.
Loss of all three sex hormones causes depression, which leads to cravings for junk food and a sedentary life, leaving little willpower to exercise.
With all these hormone imbalances working against you, is it any wonder you suddenly gain all this weight?
I'll say it again: It is not your fault. It IS your hormones.
I explain exactly how all of this works (and explain the science in plain English) in my book, The Hormone Solution.
Until you understand how your low hormones force you to gain weight — and how to get them back into balance — it's unlikely you'll ever be able to lose weight after 40.
It's that important . . . and that's why I want to send you my book for FREE today.
I'll show you how to get your free book in just a minute.
But now, let's finally get to that very simple solution I keep telling you about . . .
The solution that I've found works — for myself and 15,000 extremely happy, symptom-free patients — is bioidentical hormones.
The solution to your stubborn weight gain is to bring your hormones into balance by using bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical hormones (BHT) are 100% human identical, safe, and many are FDA approved for treating hormonal imbalances, especially for women before, during and after menopause.
The reason they work so well is because they look and act exactly like your own hormones.
Bioidentical hormones are formulated from natural plant extracts through pharmaceutical processes of concentration and purification, and are molecularly identical to your own natural hormones. Your body literally cannot tell the difference.
Most importantly, they don't suppress your natural hormone production like most non-human identical hormones, especially birth control pills and other hormone imposters made from pregnant horses' urine.
Instead, they work in harmony with your natural hormone production to bring your estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels back into balance . . . and finally restore a sense of normalcy to your body and your life.
Note: Bioidentical hormones are NOT the same as "hormone replacement therapy."
Those who formulated hormone replacement therapy (HRT) drugs in the 1930s were on the right track. They understood that the depletion of our own hormones was causing menopause symptoms, like weight gain and chronic disease.
They had an amazing opportunity to do it right . . . and change millions of women's lives forever . . . but they didn't.
They chose to use non-human identical, unnatural hormones instead of figuring out how to do it naturally. They took hormones from animals and tweaked them in chemistry labs.
In my opinion, it's because pharmaceutical companies make a lot more money with the use of horse urine as a base for hormone production than women's own hormones. So they chose to be dangerous instead.
And because of that decision, thousands of women have suffered terrible, unnecessary side effects from the use of these fake hormone imposters. The big National Institutes of Health studies proved the drugs dangerous, the doctors became afraid to prescribe them, and the women were left without viable options and developed a general distrust of hormone therapies.
I explain all of this in depth in the FREE copy of The Hormone Solution that you'll get today.
All you have to do is say "yes" to my special invitation to join me every month for a real conversation about your health and healthcare.
I'll tell you more about this offer in a minute.
Now, I'd like to show you how The Hormone Solution can truly change your life, and why you should make absolutely sure you get your FREE copy today.
Unfortunately, starting bioidentical hormone therapy isn't as easy as going to the pharmacy and picking up a pill. Most doctors don't know the difference between types of hormone therapies and don't know how to prescribe bioidentical hormones (BH). Many types of BH formulations are created for each individual patient from a specific type of pharmacy.
I wrote The Hormone Solution so women everywhere will become knowledgeable and help themselves to a life free of menopausal symptoms and embarrassing weight gain.
In this 257-page book, I explain everything you need to know about your hormones, including . . .
Normally, my book sells for about $15 . . . but the incredible impact it's had on hundreds of thousands of women just like you makes it worth so much more than that.
Balanced hormones mean your skin looks radiant and wrinkles disappear. It means your body stops retaining the water that makes you bloated and uncomfortable, and your belly is flat again. It means your moods even out. And those hot flashes? Forget them, they just go away forever. Just imagine what it would mean to feel as young as 30 again — and look it, too!
I know it sounds like a miracle, but it's just honest, solid, preventive bioidentical hormone medicine.
And you don't have to worry about it being "too good to be true . . ." because I'm going to send you this book today, for free, when you say "yes" to my special invitation below.
Once you read the book, then you can decide whether the bioidentical hormone route is right for you.
My life's mission is to spread the word of wellness, disease prevention, and self-empowerment to as many women as possible.
I believe that path begins with bioidentical hormone therapy and continues with a solid wellness education from a source whose only bias is toward making you feel great and healthy.
That's why I decided to write Dr. Erika's Healthy Balance, my monthly advisory that gives you the tools you need to stay healthy and feel good for the rest of your life.
Every month, I bring you the truth about health issues that directly affect you as a woman — and easy-to-use tips for dramatically changing your life.
In the newsletter, we'll talk a lot more about how balancing your hormones will help you feel young again, along with tons of other relevant topics I know will completely change your life for the better, including . . .
I'll also bring you valid and important updates from medical research (in plain English) to keep you constantly in the loop, so you have only the best, most accurate knowledge and can make the most informed decisions about your health and that of your family.
This consistent flow of current health wisdom will help you get healthier, faster . . . and live a longer, happier life!
I know it is the woman of the house who makes the healthcare decisions so I want to help you get the information you need to make all the right decisions.
Plus — in every issue I'll answer your questions in the "Ask Dr. Erika" column, where you'll find answers to questions you've probably had for years.

How often do you get to see your doctor? Maybe once a year for five minutes? And how much does it cost you to see your doctor? (If Obamacare keeps going the way it is, you're going to pay more for even less face time and less care.)
I strongly believe that having access to 100% unbiased, thoroughly researched information, delivered with respect and care in terms that you understand, is by far the best way to prevent disease and live the longest, happiest life you can.
After all, your healthcare is only as good as your habits — like diet, exercise, sleep, relationships and the fact that you aren't alone, we are all in this together — and the only way to change your habits is with information. Unbiased, scientifically based, real factual information.
