Dr Mary Claire Haver took a stand on HRT
…and why this TikTok star thinks it just might save your life
For the podcast this week, I speak to Dr Mary Claire Haver, a Texas-based board-certified ob-gyn and Certified Culinary Medicine Specialist. She’s also TikTok’s top menopause doc with two million followers, runs the private clinic Mary Claire Wellness, published her book The Galveston Diet in January and is working on another book, this one specifically about menopause.
I spoke to Dr Haver in early April about a wide range of things: how she made it big on social media; how to get the best medical care, even from a practitioner who doesn’t know much about menopause; the problem with menopause research; the ins and outs of various forms of hormone therapy; the progestin-progesterone question, how she prescribes HRT and why she believes every woman should take it, trauma in menopause, and much more.
