Ask Tana: Bio Identical Hormones

Tana Amen, B.S.N., R.N. responds to Facebook fan’s questions: “I am beyod frustrated! I guess I’m perimenopausal now as my periods stopped 6 months ago. I have had to fight my weight my whole life, and actually lost 56 pounds and kept it off for the past 13 years, except for 15 pounds, which is getting flabbier, and now another 5 pounds, in spite of working out… a lot and hard! Zumba, Spin, weights (not as much as I should though until a week ago). I even started jogging for the first time ever in my 50s, and even ran a few 5k races! I eat mostly vegetarian and fish… was off sweets for the most part until about 10 years ago… now crave them, but don’t eat large quantities. I need to lose about 30 – 40 pounds. All my clothes are getting tighter, and I just saw a photo someone took a couple of days ago, and I got so depressed when I saw how fat my face looks again! The depression and obsession is not helping, I know. i don’t know if its just hormonal thyroid, metabolism… not sure about getting on bio identical hormones… prefer the most natural way to go when it comes health. Any advice, suggestions, help would be so appreciated! Thank you!”
