Your doctor might be talking about them. Dr. Phil’s wife is talking about them. Even Oprah is talking about them. If you are curious about the buzz that bio-identical hormones is creating, join Dr. Janice Blumer, DO, on February 25 at 12:00 noon at the Redmond Public Library for an introduction to the benefits and risks of latest in hormone therapies.
Dr. Blumer says that if you are confused about bio-identicals, don’t worry. “It’s not easy to understand the Estrogen/Progesterone balance.” But understanding can lead to symptom control, says Blumer. “Menopause has gotten a bad rap,” she says. “I chose to look at it as an opportunity for renewed creativity, growth and time when women can focus on themselves. During her presentation, Blumer will discuss bio-identical hormones, how they are created, and the benefits they offer.
Dr. Blumer holds a Doctor of Osteopathy degree from the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, California. “Osteopathy treats the entire person rather than simply treating symptoms,” says Blumer, who opened Vital Link Osteopathic Health Center in Redmond four years ago. Before moving to Central Oregon ten years ago, she competed her residency training in family practice at Case Western Reserve/ University Hospitals in Cleveland, OH. She also holds a degree in homeopathy from the British Institute of Homeopathy.
