Our Doc - Your Doc

Tuesday, August, 1, 2017 < Back to Blog Posts

Women seem to take one of two paths when perimenopause and menopause start. Perhaps you have done one these things. Either you go to your doctor and bring up menopause, or you avoid talking with your doc in fear that you will be nudged toward treatments you aren’t sure about. Perhaps you chose to rely solely on insights from your girlfriends or what you’ve read on the internet.

The best advice is to work with your doctor. If your doctor doesn’t listen to your concerns and desires, then you probably need to seek out a different caregiver. You deserve to be heard and to work with a doctor who listens to your thoughts and questions. This can be a hassle in the moment, but very helpful in the long run.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor about Remifemin®. Your doctor needs to understand the clinical studies and history of Remifemin and how it’s been used by women in Europe for over sixty years. And here’s another plus: your doc can see what our doc— Dr. Mary Jane Minkin— says about menopause-related questions.

You may have seen Dr. Minkin in the national media. She is a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale University School of Medicine and has a private practice in New Haven, Conn. She is widely known in the field of gynecology and is interviewed often in print and broadcast media; she has even appeared on a billboard in Times Square, along with other women of note representing the "new face of menopause."

Dr. Minkin has an extensive background in women’s health issues and has recommended Remifemin® for many years.  You can see the many answers she’s provided archived at our website—www.remifemin.com. Simply click on the “About Remifemin” tab and then on “The Doctor is In.”

Some sample questions that Dr. Minkin has answered:
Why do I sweat so much during hot flashes and night sweats?
How many years on average do your patients experience menopause?
How do I get help with mood swings?

Think about that; this renowned doctor has many answers to the questions you’re wondering about. She has advice for you —for free! Take advantage of this great opportunity.

In her own words: “I have recommended Remifemin for many years. Black cohosh is one of the few products in the herbal world that has significant effectiveness for hot flash relief.* Plus, it’s not estrogenic and has none of the side effects of other, non-hormonal prescription remedies.

The first place many women hear about menopause is from their doctor. That’s great, that’s the way it should be. But, if you have mentioned Remifemin to your doctor and have been met with skepticism, please send them to Remifemin.com and have them read more about the opinions and answers from Dr. Minkin. They can also explore the clinical studies.

Menopause is a big deal and you deserve to work with your doctor to find the answers you need for optimum health. Dr. Minkin is on your team, as am I. We are here for you.
