Welcome back to the Reverse Alzheimer’s Summit. I’m your host, Dr. Heather Sandison. And I’m delighted to have Dr. Felice Gersh here to talk about hormones today. Dr. Gersh received her medical degree from USC School of Medicine and then studied obstetrics and gynecology at the Kaiser Hospital in Los Angeles. There she was honored with the CREOG top resident award every year. After graduating, she launched a private practice founded in her passionate belief in holistic women’s health care. 

From the earliest years, way back before it was cool, before alternative medicine was even popular her practice included acupuncture, massage and Chinese medicine. About 12 years ago, she pursued an interest in holistic healing and graduated with a fellowship in integrative medicine at the University of Arizona and became one of the first dual board certified integrative gynecologists in the United States. She’s also an impressive and sought after speaker as well as a best-selling author. Dr. Gersh, thank you for taking the time and being here with us today.
