Could Estrogen Be the Cure for Female Depression?
MIAMI, FL -- (December 14, 2009/Guiding Light Library) -- Each year millions of women are prescribed antidepressants for perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms, namely depression and insomnia, when actually their bodies are in dire need of estrogen. The Journal of Reproductive Medicine states that in a statistical study of depressed women interviewed in inpatient psychiatric hospitals, 41% are admitted on the day before or the first day of menses.
“Estrogen deficiency causes depression,” says Uzzi Reiss, M.D., OB/GYN, author of The Natural Superwoman. “When estrogen levels dip down at any stage of life or as a consequence of the natural fluctuation of their monthly cycles, many women often report they feel depressed, flat, uninspired, and hopeless.” Dr. Uzzi goes on to say, “Unfortunately, it is far more common for a woman to receive a quick prescription for antidepressants than a suggestion that she address her estrogen deficiency.”
Author, nutritionist, freelance writer, and medical researcher, Autumn E., says she endured terrible premenstrual depression for many years before she learned she was estrogen deficient. Since discovering the magical powers of bioidentical hormones, she is a new woman and can confidently say it literally saved her life. In an effort to offer hope to women who might be suffering unnecessarily with perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms, she plans to educate women abroad through her website, articles, and soon to be launched nonprofit organization, Best Wishes for Women.
