Women’s Health – Hormones play a huge role in chronic pain issues for women. This is especially true for women over 30.
Dr. Larry Komer and his wife Joan have been doing seminars on Menopause and Self-Esteem. Their DVDs are especially helpful and interesting.

Men’s Health – Many of the pain conditions facing men are associated with aging and hormone issues.
The Masters Men’s Clinic is an excellent resource on men’s health and especially Andropause – the men’s equivalent of women’s menopause. Every man over 40 should get up to speed on this topic. The clinic now has an online survey that is helpful in measuring the effects of aging and the risks of depression. You can also book a phone consultation. Well worth it. www.mastersmensclinic.com
