Have you been duped?

My heart was beating hard in my chest, my eyes opened wide  and the skin on my hands prickled with excitement…Could this be true?  FINALLY an article that sheds much needed light and attention on menopause - uncovering many of the myths and mistreatment of women’s symptoms. 


Hallelujah, ladies!  The time has come!


The title of the article, Women Have Been Misled About Menopause, written by Susan Dominus of the NY Times, was published on February 1, 2023. 


Have many women really been misled?  The answer is a resounding, “Absolutely, yes!”


Here’s the link to the article


Having night sweats with waking up at 0200 and 0300, painful sex, daytime hot flashes every 1-2 hours, problems with finding the right words?   


“Now imagine that there was a treatment for all these symptoms that doctors often overlooked. The scenario seems unlikely, and yet it’s a depressingly accurate picture of menopausal care for women.” 


but thankfully, now the word is out! 


For more than 20 years, I have been a strong advocate for women, helping them navigate through menopause in my practice, doing lectures around the country and being a principal investigator in clinical trials on women’s health.  My passion has been and continues to be to empower you to take control of your health, search for the truth - I founded - amazingover40.com with the mission to provide a trusted resource for women to help you navigate the most current information about your overall health and well being, and feel empowered. 


At menopause, many women accept the false advice of their doctors, accept their  symptoms as incurable and feel let down and defeated.


But wait, what about hormone therapy?  I know as my patient, YOU are aware of the huge benefits and minimal risks associated with taking hormones,  Yet, many women- and their friends and family - do NOT.    Although they may be experiencing symptoms, rarely do they discuss them with their physician. 


“ A recent national poll found that 35 percent of menopausal women reported that they had experienced four or more symptoms, but only 44 percent said they had discussed their symptoms with a doctor.”


I absolutely LOVE this article and couldn’t wait to share it with you. Please read this article in its entirety - take your time and go back to re-read some parts. It is an incredibly well-written, honest and factual assessment of how women in menopause have been overlooked and withheld hormone therapy. 


Share with your friends and family - as well as my website - where even more curated information is available to you, written by Dr. Diana.


Ok now,  my heart rate has come down and my breathing has stabilized and I can honestly say that I’m so thankful  that the truth is finally finding its way to all women around the nation - and hopefully around the world!


May you reap the benefits of this article and understand the power of knowledge.


- In health and happiness

  • I just found Dr. Hoppe. I’m so very excited to finally be on the right path and to start estrogen . Hopefully,I’ll be able to start it this week. I’ve suffered with insomnia for the past six years and also a foggy brain. Im so ready to be ‘normal’ again. I spoke to her last week for the first time and she was so very kind and caring and LISTENED. I’m looking forward to a whole new life.
