New book aims to revolutionize the health of women during menopause

(WXYZ) -

For decades, doctors have assumed that symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, sweating and reduced sex drive, are caused by a reduction in the amount of estrogen that the body is producing.

Dr. Charles Mok, a former emergency room physician who is board certified in Anti-Aging Medicine and the founder of Allure Medical Spa, has evidence that doctors have focused too much on estrogen for menopause and science has found low testosterone levels are also responsible for many symptoms. In his new book “Testosterone: Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a Woman” (Forbes Hardcover $25.99, ISBN 978-0998365503), Dr. Mok provides peer-reviewed studies which support this view, translating scientific literature into an easy to understand manual for hormone replacement therapy. The book launch is scheduled for March 2, 2017, at Allure Medical Spa in Shelby Township.

Dr. Mok’s book provides compelling evidence about the important role of testosterone in shaping women’s health. The hormone is 10-20 times more abundant than estrogen in young women, but then falls as women age. Dr. Mok provides myriad long term studies showing that modern testosterone therapy (normally delivered in the form of a tiny pellet, about the size of a grain of rice, inserted underneath the skin) keeps women healthier, with no adverse side-effects. Benefits include:

  • Weight loss
  • Better sex life
  • Improved mood
  • Fewer sleep problems
  • Reduced hot flashes and night sweats
  • Thicker hair
  • Lower risk of breast cancer
  • Lower risk of heart disease

Dr. Mok will launch his book with a lecture, followed by a party, on March 2nd at 6 p.m. at Allure Medical Spa, 8180 26 Mile Road, Shelby Township, MI 48316. The event is free to the public and all attendees will receive a copy of the book. To purchase a copy of the book, go to Amazon.
