As part of our commitment to your health and wellness, Dr. Casad created a series of video health tips she calls “Wisdom Wednesdays.” We’re now compiling this wisdom into a series of blog posts so that you can easily find her videos on a specific subject.
This month, it’s all about ESTROGEN. In the following videos, you’ll learn more about this vital hormone and why it’s so important. Each one takes just a few minutes to watch, but they’re packed with information you can use to gain a far deeper understanding of why estrogen is so important at all stages of your life.
Benefits of Estradiol Replacement Therapy
In her latest Wisdom Wednesday video, Dr. Casad discusses all the incredible health benefits of estrogen. It’s a brief review, but it will give you great insight into why we do what we do here at Connie Casad, MD.
Estrogen and ALL its Benefits!
In this short video, Dr. Casad explains what estradiol is (which is what we use in hormone replacement therapy). She also talks about the ways to take it, the difference between synthetic estrogens and estradiol, and more.
Book Review: “Estrogen Matters”
In this video, Dr. Casad reviews the book Estrogen Matters by Avrum Bluming, MD, and Carol Tavris, PhD. The subtitle of this book is “Why Taking Hormones in Menopause Can Improve Women’s Well-Being and Lengthen Their Lives — Without Raising the Risk of Breast Cancer.” This book is near and dear to her heart, and when you watch this review, you’ll understand why.
Estrogen: Does it Cause Breast Cancer? Does it Feed Breast Cancer?
Dr. Casad has talked to many women who have a concern about estrogen and breast cancer. In this video, she walks through why the concept that estrogen feeds breast cancer is common thinking — and why we need to move on from that and look at the science. It’s a fascinating and enlightening video.
We’ll share more videos next month covering a different topic. And of course, please visit Dr. Casad’s YouTube channel to watch the videos that interest you.
