Dr. Anna Cabeca on Restoring Health at Any Age

Hormones truly are in the driver’s seat when it comes to so many common female complaints, including low sex drive, PMS, postpartum depression, anxiety, menopause, and aging. Dr. Cabeca is here to help with these issues.

Female sexual health is one topic I haven’t touched on much on the blog, but most of us don’t need to see the research to know the importance of these areas to our physical and emotional health.

With the help of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and other natural alternatives, Dr. Cabeca has helped many woman regain their health footing and to feel at home in their own bodies once again.

  1. Hi Katie!

    I’m a long time listener and follower of yours!
    I loved this show! I realize I’m on the upper end of the age group of most of your listeners, but I would love to hear from more older women on the peri-men phase of life as I’m approaching it…. uh.
    Dr. Cabeca is great!
    I just adore the work you do! And you always manage to ask questions of your guests that I was wanting the answers to! Thank you!

    • Thank you Stacey! And I agree Katie is the best interviewer as she goes deep into issues too!

  2. I agree with the other lady….us older gals need info. I’m 67 with a lot of issues, one being Lichen sclerosis. I try to use everything natural as possible. I have immune system issues, so meds usually react like Anaphylaxis. Scary! I could go on and on naming my health problems, but right now I’m trying to get this LS under control…dryness, thin skin, etc.
    Thanks Katie for your posts.

  3. Hi Katie,

    I’m the 76 year-old male who receives your posts and, while I go through some of them from one end to the other, there are some, like this one, that I’ll scan but not go into the links. But, what got me today, was the comment “If you’re a woman (and I’m guessing most of you are!)”, it just made me chuckle. But that’s not the point. Many of the female issues you address are also important to males, though perhaps in different ways. Males generally don’t read the articles that talk about female issues, because those articles are for females. But males would really benefit by having articles about female sexuality written so males can understand the issues women face – and take those explanations into consideration in their relationship with their loved one.

    But please keep sending the posts. I like to look at all of them even those in which I don’t have direct interest.

  4. Hello Katie, thank you for covering this important topic. I have a huge issue with irregular spotting/bleeding/odor/recurring BV & yeast infections. I’ve tried it all, but refuse BC as recommended by my GYN. I’ve done tests for fibroids and all kinds of other painful exams and luckily nothing came up, but I still have not a single solution. This started about 3 and a half years ago. Some things that have helped control the odor: Dr. Bronner’s tea tree oil Castile soap and inserting coconut oil with my finger.

    How can I regulate my period?

    Thank you. I’ll be reading your articles.
