Memorable Quotes:

“We have a lot of pain medications that go in and sort of stop those inflammatory pathways. But the problem with stopping something is it’s kind of like damming a stream way upstream. When you do that, you’re going to have downstream effects. So, in a lot of cases, what we want is for those streams to be modulated. We want to make sure that they do the right thing, but they’re not overly expressing themselves.” – Betty Murray

“The lack of symptoms doesn’t mean that there’s not a problem. And that the simple fact is when we lose our hormones, we go through a significant period of change. Our brain changes, our bones change, our muscle changes, every part of our body changes because every single cell except for red blood cell and a cell in the brain have receptors for hormones, particularly estrogen.” – Betty Murray
