At last! Everything you need to know about the menopause in a film that enlightens and entertains.
Hot Flash Havoc
Described as ‘the most provocative and revealing film ever made about menopause’, Hot Flash Havoc features stories of women going through the menopause and in-depth interviews with dozens of renowned women’s health experts.
The Women’s Health Initiative Study
Hot Flash Havoc also deals with the confusion, fear and misinformation that appeared in the light of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study released in 2002.
The study misrepresented that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used to treat the symptoms of menopause could significantly increase the risk of heart attacks and cancer and led to millions of women stopping treatment.
The Myths and Realities of Menopause
The film was inspired by executive producer Heidi Houston’s own experience of having her health issues not recognised by doctors as menopausal symptoms. Her three year battle to find a solution to her symptoms made her determined to make a documentary that addressed the myths as well as the realities of menopause.
Hot Flash Havoc aims to provide women with accurate information to empower them to make educated decisions about their health care during menopause.
