Senate Bill S.959, deceptively named the “Pharmaceutical Compounding Quality and Accountability Act.”

This is the story of my patient Penny. When she first came to see me she was 52 years old and had been experiencing “Menopause” symptoms since age 34.

To slow the aging process both men and women should test their progesterone levels regularly and take a natural progesterone supplement if their levels get too low.Details
