Dr. Oz is fascinated by the buzz surrounding hormone replacement therapy, so he headed to Los Angeles to accompany 52-year-old Linda to a visit with Robin's own gynecologist, Dr. Prudence Hall. Linda says her menopause symptoms were making her miserable.
 
"It's mainly the hot flashes," Linda says. "And the sleepless nights. I'm irritable as well. I just want to be my old self again."

After Dr. Hall conducts a series of tests, she determines that Linda has a hormonal imbalance and prescribes hormones to help alleviate Linda's symptoms. Dr. Hall tells Dr. Oz that women should begin to feel better in as soon as a few days after starting the treatment.

A week later, Linda says she couldn't be happier. "I feel wonderful," she says. "I was having hot flashes every 45 minutes to an hour. The other day, I was out with a girlfriend and all day I didn't have one hot flash. I couldn't believe it."
