Are you tired of accepting fatigue, insomnia, and hormonal imbalances as inevitable parts of aging? What if I told you that it is possible to reclaim your vitality, and it begins with understanding perimenopause?
In this podcast episode, we unravel the mysteries of perimenopause with a brilliant mind, seasoned physician, and expert in Functional Medicine. Buckle up as we explore the nuances of this often-overlooked stage, where profound changes unfold in a woman's body.
Perimenopause refers to the time during which your body makes the natural transition to menopause, marking the end of the reproductive years. Understanding this phase is crucial for every woman between the ages of 35 and 50.
Let us unveil the challenges women face during Perimenopause. From hormonal imbalances to the often-dismissed symptoms, we'll explore why conventional medicine falls short of truly understanding and addressing these issues. Get ready to shatter the myths surrounding Perimenopause and uncover the keys to thriving, not just surviving, during this transformative time.
One key aspect that we emphasize is the significance of bio-identical hormones. Throughout this episode, we'll delve into why understanding and optimizing these hormones play a pivotal role in navigating the complexities of Perimenopause.
Meet our guest —Inna Lozinskaya, MD, is a physician, Award-winning international speaker, mentor, and soon-to-be author. She is board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Integrative Medicine, fully trained in Functional Medicine by both, IFM and A4M. She is a founder of Midlife Wellness Institute. She speaks locally, nationally, and internationally, including stages such as the International Experts Forum at CitiBanamex and MedicaSur in Mexico City, and the New York Academy of Medicine and NASDAQ.
Dr. Inna practiced hospital medicine for 26 years, taking care of the sickest patients in the ICU and specialty floors. Seeing patients spending a third of their lives suffering rather than living fully made her realize that conventional medicine is great at helping people survive, but lacks the tools to help them thrive. Suffering from fatigue, insomnia, and hormonal imbalances herself for over a decade, she refused to accept "this is normal", "everybody feels this way", and "it's just your age". She studied Chinese medicine and MindBody medicine at Harvard Medical School and Ayurvedic approach at the Chopra Center in San Diego. She finally found all her solutions in Functional medicine. Getting her health and her life back completely transformed the way she practiced medicine. In her Midlife Wellness Institute in Denver, CO she helps her patients restore energy, sleep, and weight, optimize hormones, and feel like their best selves again, regardless of age.
