Ep 59: Hormonal health with Dr. Hannah Short

In this week’s episode of Wellness with Liz Earle, Liz is joined by Suffolk based GP, Dr. Hannah Short. Hannah specialises in female hormonal health, with a particular interest in menopause and premenstrual disorders. Her passion for women’s health comes partly from her own experience because at the age of 35 Hannah had a total hysterectomy resulting in premature surgical menopause. Since then, she has poured her efforts into raising awareness about the importance of hormonal health both in the medical community and in the public eye.
