A Comprehensive Strategy for Menopause, Part 1


There’s apprehension about the rapid adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR)—are we about to enter the dystopian future world of The Matrix? But today’s guest, Dr. Joseph Feuerstein, discusses the innovative application of AI and VR to a common problem: menopausal hot flashes in women for whom estrogen is contraindicated because of the risk of cancer. Using a VR headset, menopausal women were presented guided imagery featuring cooling and relaxing suggestions. A pilot study showed it reduced the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, improved sleep quality, and enhanced overall well-being. Dr. Feuerstein discusses a comprehensive strategy for menopause, comprising acupuncture, natural products (Estrovera and Relizen), exercise and diet. Are soy isoflavones OK for relieving menopausal symptoms, even in breast cancer patients? Dr. Feuerstein is also co-author of "The Cannabinoid Cookbook," which is not merely a guidebook to marijuana edibles; instead, it focuses on the numerous foods that support the body’s endocannabinoid system—Including cocoa, omega-3 fatty acids, turmeric, and truffles. These foods deliver compounds which confer a multiplicity of mood and anti-inflammatory benefits. Click HERE for part 2.
