Memorable Quotes:

“The simple fact is the hormones declining are why we’re experiencing these symptoms. They’re not new and unique and exclusive of their own. The anxiety and depression are actually a symptom of the loss of hormones. And I’m going to go into why. So the problem is anxiety, depression. Solution is replace hormones and get them back on line.” – Betty Murray

“If you find that you are challenged with getting somebody to listen to you, drop them, fire them, find somebody who listens, and fight for your right to feel good. We shouldn’t have to spend this next act feeling terrible at the same time.” – Betty Murray
