Dr. Oz: E-Patch
Dr. Oz investigated the E-Patch, a patch that women can wear to boost estrogen and transform their mood and energy. For years, doctors prescribed hormone replacement therapy to treat the major symptoms of Menopause: hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings.
Then there were studies that showed that women taking estrogen were more likely to get heart disease, strokes, and breast cancer. After more than a decade of studies, doctors are now recommending estrogen again, especially for women not yet in menopause. That’s because new evidence shows low doses of estrogen can not only control hot flashes, but improve mood and reignite energy.
Doctors believe the E-Patch could help tired women of all ages.
Dr. Oz: What Is Estrogen?
Dr. Oz gave a quick lesson on what Estrogen is. We all know it’s the major female hormone, but where is it made? A lot of it is made in the pelvis, but it’s also made in the adrenal glands and in fat tissues. Estrogen circulates in the bloodstream and travels throughout the body. It’s responsible for menstrual cycle, producing collagen in the skin, and developing strong bones. Estrogen also affects the feel-good chemicals in the brain.
Dr. Oz: Is the E-Patch Right For You?
So the question is, is the E-Patch right for you? Gynecologist Dr. Tara Allmen came by the show to talk about this issue. She said that women know if they’re low in estrogen by skipping or stopping periods. She said if that happens, women should go to a gynecologist who specializes mid-life women’s health.
Dr. Allmen said that many symptomatic menopausal women are scared of the E-Patch because they’re afraid of breast cancer. She said that the risks for breast cancer for the E-Patch are so low and the benefits are so great for someone in that position that they should push away their breast cancer fears and find an expert that can help them.
She also said that they only provide a small amount of estrogen. Symptomatic women just need a little bit of estrogen to get through to their brain. Dr. Allmen said the E-Patch is very simple to use and it works rapidly. You just take it once or twice a week. Dr. Allmen said that she herself is a candidate for the E-Patch because she’s turning 50 and she’s joining the 60 million women who are symptomatic.
