“A film of menopausal proportions.”
Hot Flash Havoc is enlightening, entertaining, controversial, and is a crash-course in what you need to know about perimenopause and menopause. It has the power to be a life-changing experience for every woman and man.
Hot Flash Havoc is the most provocative and revealing documentary ever made about menopause. For the first time this documentary sets the record straight about the U.S. government sanctioned Women’s Health Initiative study released in 2002, which misrepresented that the hormonal replacement therapy being used by millions of women to treat the symptoms of menopause, could actually increase the risk of heart attacks and cancer.
A nationwide panic resulted – causing women to flush their hormone medications down the toilet. As a direct result of women stopping their hormones, women’s health has been compromised and in the United States alone it is estimated that up to 25,000 women have unnecessarily experienced heart attacks or death.
Hot Flash Havoc is an insightful documentary that reveals fact vs. fiction stemming from a decade of misguided information about menopause. The movie conveys poignant personal stories shared by real women and in-depth interviews with the worlds most noted experts. The information contained in this film could save your life … or the life of someone that you love.
