Radio Interview: Dr. Shira Miller on Holy Hormones, Honey!

Shira Miller, M.D.Men, Women6 Comments

Last month I was interviewed by Leslie Botha on the Holy Hormones, Honey! radio show at KRFC 88.9 FM, Ft. Collins, Colorado.

We discussed:

  1. Why did I decide to become a menopause doctor?
  2. Is menopause a chronic disease?
  3. Is there really such a thing as post-menopause?
  4. What is the best way to replace bio-identical hormones after menopause?
  5. How do estrogen and progesterone deficiencies manifest in women’s bodies after menopause?
  6. Besides hot flashes and vaginal dryness, what are other common symptoms of menopause that most women don’t know about?
  7. What are bioidentical hormones?
  8. What is the Wiley Protocol?
  9. What is male menopause?

There are sections where I laugh after talking about serious issues. Aggh, it must be nervous laughter…because it’s so sad I should be crying!

    For a woman in her 70s, what hormone levels would be reasonable for her to have from HRT ,,,,estradiol, progesterone, testosterone. Is it really preferable to emulate a menstrual cycle with the Wiley protocol, even if the woman has had a hysterctomy?

  • Dr. Shira Miller

    Hi Carla,

    I believe menopause does require hormone replacement therapy, just like any other hormone deficiency. That being said, you don’t want to take hormone pills because they are digested in the liver and this increases blood clotting and inflammation, which increases the risk of blood clots and stroke. Look for a doctor who knows how to prescribe the Wiley Protocol.

    How can we teat Hypogonadism

  • Dr. Shira Miller

    Idelle, Good question. The body requires vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbs, fats, water, air, sunshine, exercise, sleep, etc. to survive. One cannot replace one for the other. Once a woman goes into menopause, she has barely any estrogen and progesterone (both hormones). If she’s had her ovaries removed, then she is most likely lacking testosterone too. Nothing can replace these hormones except for hormones themselves…no matter how old she is. And, there are receptors for these hormones everywhere in the body, not just the uterus…so whether or not she’s had a hysterectomy doesn’t matter. Anything but reproducing the hormone rhythms and cycles that the body would be producing naturally if it could…is making up a new hormone state for humans. All this being said, I know it’s a new concept for many doctors and patients and can be quite shocking until it’s understood.

    I hope that helps.
