EPISODE 18: BODY with Dr Rebecca Lewis
When I started the podcast, I wasn’t to know that I would be having an in-depth conversation on HRT (hormonal Replacement Therapy) with one of the world’s leading GP’s who specialises in menopause and women’s health. As a fitness educator, I had the belief that HRT would NOT be something I would explore but the best things that came from my conversation with Dr Rebecca Lewis (MBBS FRCA DRCOG MRCGP), was the understanding of how bioidentical hormones work for the body, and of course, we have more options and knowledge than ever before!
Rebecca qualified from Guy’s Medical School in London in 1991 and initially pursued a career in Anaesthetics, obtaining FRCA in 1997.
She then changed speciality and became a GP gaining MRCGP in 2000. She continues to practise as a GP and has developed an interest in the menopause, giving lectures and writing articles on the subject. She is determined to improve the understanding of the menopause in current and future generations through education and access to accurate evidence based medical information. She is passionate about making the menopause a much more positive experience and enabling women to get back to feeling themselves again.
She has two young children and enjoys running and keeping fit.
