Welcome to my first post. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. I’m not close to being finished with the site but I wanted to start blogging as I build it so you can see how it evolves. I’ve been working hard designing this website, and as I’ve been constructing it, I’ve been getting pretty excited. Since this is my first post, I’m going to start at the beginning of my journey with PMS, perimenopause, a hysterectomy, menopause, and hormone replacement therapy. This post will answer the question, “Why Moxie?”
On October 31, 2012, I was browsing the Internet on the topics of menopause and hormones like I’ve done so many times over the past nine years. I don’t know why it was this day that was different but it was in regards to deciding to do something about the lack of information, misinformation and truth on menopause, perimenopause and hormones. Everything I was reading was false or inaccurate. “Menopause experts” were saying things like “take only the lowest dose of estrogen”, “Estrogen causes cancer”, and “Just go talk to your healthcare provider” when asked what to do about hormones. The more I read, the more upsetting it was at the inconsistencies in answers to the questions women were asking about menopause. Not even doctors were being honest as to what they’re saying to their patients about hormones.
I created this website for the purpose of providing the most accurate information on menopause, perimenopause and hormone replacement therapy options. Everything I write is my own opinion based on my years of research, clinical experience, personal experience and education. Feel free to check out my background and education in the “Moxie” section located in the top menu bar. If it’s not there now, it will be soon.
I will discuss my personal experiences with and without hormones over the years. You can find these posts under “The Story of M.” located in the lower menu bar.
This is going to be a great journey.
