Your Go-to Source For  Perimenopause & Menopause Support 

Welcome to Dr Purity Carr Menopause Clinic at Purity Health™, where we believe in living life to the fullest. Our clinic in association with Samy Medical Group, is dedicated to providing safe, evidence-based knowledge and information on perimenopause and menopause. We understand that there are numerous myths and misunderstandings surrounding menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). One common misconception is that estrogen causes breast cancer, which is entirely false.

Here's the truth:

  1. Extensive evidence supports that women who are within 10 years of their menopause or under the age of 60 need not worry about HRT. The benefits significantly outweigh the risks for these women.

  2. If you have been taking HRT since your perimenopause or within 10 years of your menopause, there is no reason to discontinue it at any age.

  3. Even if you have surpassed your menopause or are over 60, starting HRT under the guidance of a knowledgeable practitioner is a viable option.

At Dr Purity Carr Menopause Clinic, we are committed to providing accurate information and personalized care. We encourage you to reach out to us for more details at or connect with us on Facebook at Dr Purity Carr Menopause Clinic. Let us support you on your menopause journey and help you live life to the fullest.


Autophagy is a natural cellular process that involves the degradation and recycling of damaged or dysfunctional cellular components. The word "autophagy" comes from the Greek words "auto" (self) and "phagy" (to eat), essentially meaning "self-eating." It's a mechanism that allows cells to remove and recycle unwanted or unnecessary cellular components, helping to maintain cellular health and balance.

During autophagy, a cell forms a membrane structure called an autophagosome around the targeted cellular material, such as damaged organelles or proteins. The autophagosome then fuses with a lysosome, which is an organelle containing enzymes that break down the contents of the autophagosome. This process releases raw materials (like amino acids and fatty acids) that can be used by the cell for energy, repair, or building new cellular components.

Autophagy serves several important roles in the body:

  1. Cellular Maintenance: Autophagy helps remove dysfunctional or damaged organelles and proteins, contributing to cellular health and preventing the buildup of toxic components.

  2. Adaptation to Stress: Autophagy can be upregulated in response to various stresses, such as nutrient deprivation or infection, helping cells adapt to changing conditions.

  3. Aging and Disease: Autophagy is thought to play a role in the aging process and in the development of certain diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and metabolic diseases.

  4. Immunity: Autophagy is involved in the clearance of pathogens and contributes to the body's immune response.

  5. Cell Death: Autophagy can also play a role in programmed cell death, known as autophagic cell death.

Interest in autophagy has grown in recent years due to its potential implications for health and longevity. Some research suggests that autophagy may have benefits for cellular and metabolic health. Factors that can stimulate autophagy include fasting, exercise, and certain dietary components. However, more research is needed to fully understand the complex relationship between autophagy, health, and disease.
