Miss Jones meets Dr Marion Gluck...

Last night we went to a wonderful event at the beautiful Marion Gluck Clinic located on Wimpole Street. Myself and around 8 other of our lovely PA's were welcomed into the clinic with open arms and given champagne and nibbles as well as a tour of the premises. Dr Marion Gluck then gave a very inspirational and informative talk about her clinic and what she does.

Dr Gluck is a GP who specialises in women's health and in particular bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormones mimic the hormones that are produced naturally in our body. Many women at some point in their lives experience a hormonal imbalance, this can lead to tiredness, stress, feelings of depression, sleep problems, anxiety and of course the menopause can change our hormone balance hugely. Dr Gluck and her two other fabulous doctors - Dr Toledano and Dr Galy - listen to patient's symptoms and worries and take blood to look at each individual's hormone levels. They then prescribe a tailor made bio-identical hormone medication to help patient's start to feel like themselves again.

We had lots of questions for Dr Gluck - both personal experiences and about things we had read or heard about and she answered them all perfectly for us. She also very kindly signed copies of her book 'It Must be my Hormones' for us to take home and read. PLUS we got given a wonderful goody bag containing a natural facial moisturiser and lots of information about the clinic.

It was a great evening, we all learnt so much and best of all learnt that it's OK to speak out about womanly problems, we don't have to shy away from them any more! For more information you can visit The Marion Gluck Clinic's website:
