About Me

The author of 21 books, including “Safe Hormones, Smart Women,” Dr. Lindsey Berkson has worked as a continuing education professor for doctors and pharmacists. She is a functional medicine specialist focusing on hormones, anti-aging and medical nutrition, especially for breast cancer survivors. Dr. Berkson has been a nutrient formulator, drug inventor, and chiropractor. She has served as a hormone scholar at an environmental estrogen think tank at Tulane University and has published original peer-review research with Houston’s University of Texas Medical School.

Berkson focuses much of her professional time on teaching continuing education medical courses for an audience of doctors and pharmacists, focusing on the role of hormones in the human body. She has served as a nutritionist, consultant, lecturer, researcher, scholar, author, blogger, podcaster, chiropractor and functional medicine specialist for nearly five decades. Her experience includes 35 years focused on the role of hormones in the human body, including the development of supplement-maker Metagenics’ first female nutraceutical line for physicians in the U.S. She held the position of distinguished scholar at an estrogen think tank at Tulane University and fellow at the Health Sciences Collegium medical research institute.

Another of Berkson’s passions is helping patients address the difficult topic of aging.

“Aging is not an unavoidable fact of life,” Berkson said. “So much of the aging process is attributed to our hormones, so with the right strategies and lifestyle changes, we can help patients slow down the aging process naturally so they can continue to live a fulfilling, enjoyable and healthy life.”
