“Women are light, we’re hope, we’re com­pas­sion.”

An in­te­gra­tive physi­cian for nearly 35 years and a pioneer in nat­u­ral, bioiden­ti­cal hor­mone ther­apy, Pru­dence Hall, MD ( the­hall­cen­ter. com), has some very sim­ple ad­vice: “Live your life to the fullest— make your life mat­ter, it’s pre­cious— and if some­thing doesn’t work, don’t whine but work hard to fi x it.”

Af­ter help­ing many pa­tients over­come their health chal­lenges, Hall ran into a big one of her own: how to reach and help more peo­ple than she can see in her prac­tice. “The mis­ery I see is pro­found,” she says. Em­bark­ing on an ex­panded mis­sion of en­hanc­ing not just the phys­i­cal health of oth­ers, but bring­ing more en­light­en­ment and love to the world, she wrote a book, Ra­di­ant Again & For­ever, and be­gan lec­tur­ing ex­ten­sively. On a per­sonal level, Hall re­al­ized that it’s vi­tal to un­der­stand what brings you joy and to do those things, and be­gan sur­round­ing her­self with like- minded peo­ple, from spir­i­tual lead­ers to work­out bud­dies. And, she keeps her hor­mones bal­anced to youth­ful lev­els. For women of child- bear­ing age, she em­pha­sizes, “Don’t take birth con­trol pills; they dis­rupt hor­mone bal­ance pro­foundly.” .
