Did you know that a hysterectomy is the second most frequently performed surgical procedure (after cesarean section) for women in the Unites States who are of reproductive age? In the United States, approximately 600,000 hysterectomies are performed each year.
In this podcast, Dr. Steven Hotze, an expert on hormone decline and imbalance, discusses the reasons women are often told to have a hysterectomy by their doctor and why this surgery is often medically unnecessary. Many of the problems and symptoms leading to a hysterectomy recommendation stem from a hormone imbalance.
He shares the health symptoms that lead to having a hysterectomy and how women can alleviate those symptoms naturally, without surgery, by restoring and balancing their hormones with bioidentical hormones.
A hysterectomy is commonly known as surgically induced menopause. Dr. Hotze shares that as in natural menopause, symptoms women often experience after a hysterectomy are hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, loss of libido, depression, anxiety, mood swings and weight gain. Many women don't feel like themselves anymore. Restoring and balancing hormones is essential after a hysterectomy so that women can regain their health and feel their best.
Dr. Hotze discusses the importance of knowing when surgery is necessary and when it can be avoided with natural treatment. Knowledge is power. It is important for women to take charge of their own health and know what questions to ask when your doctor recommends surgery.
Here are a few of the questions women should ask their doctor when considering having a hysterectomy:
—Why do I need a hysterectomy?
—What's causing these symptoms?
—What organs are being removed and why?
—Are there alternatives and the risk/benefits of each?
—What are the effects, and are they permanent?
