In this episode, Tara sheds light on the invisible benefits of HRT that go beyond alleviating menopausal symptoms and explores the life-saving potential of this therapy.

Tara emphasizes that HRT can play a crucial role in protecting against multiple disease states, including osteoporosis, dementia, muscle wastage, and certain types of cancer. The podcast explains that the use of HRT can have a significant impact on bone health, reduce the risk of dementia and sarcopenia, and support cardiovascular health, among other benefits.
