Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz is a doctor, expert, speaker, and advocate for integrative women’s health. She has also created a Menopause Bootcamp to de-stigmatize the aging process and help empower women. Dr. Suzanne discusses HRT for menopause, what we need to know about hormones and breast cancer, how the medical field is everchanging and we must keep an open mind, what is interesting her in the menopause and aging field, and more. 

“This is not a disease; this is a state of being alive. So you have options in terms of how you want to live and age well, whatever that means to you.” 

“Science is not a religion. It is not a monolith, it is not unchanging and unmoving. That is not what science is. Science is a process of inquiry. Period. End of sentence.”

“There’s actually quite a bit of data on the potential health benefits of estrogen specifically in all of us and in breast cancer survivors.” 

“The vast majority of us who are diagnosed with breast cancer are going to be diagnosed at early stages. The vast majority of those of us diagnosed with breast cancer are going to die of: breast cancer or heart disease? Heart disease!” 

“The number one tool for healthy aging is lifestyle. That’s always the best. Exercise, movement, getting the blood flowing, staying flexible, mindset – it’s really not rocket science.”

“One of the great things as we age, if we have community, we have support, we have tools, is we start to settle more into who we are and start to appreciate that.”
