The Hormone Cure
Women are told that feeling moody, asexual, tapped out, dried up, stressed out, and sleep deprived is just a part of being female and the only way to cure it, or attempt to cure it, is through prescrition pill.
Dr. Sara Gottfried, a Harvard-educated physician and nationally recognized, board-certified gynecologist, outlines her “Gottfried Principle” to combat many of these issues.
Combining natural therapies with rigorous scientific testing and using an informative questionnaire to identify the common causes of hormonal imbalance, Dr. Gottfried provides an individualized plan in nonjudgmental and thoughtful language. Her principle is based on ten years’ study of cutting-edge medical research as a specialist in functional and integrative therapies.
Not all the advice is practical — too many supplements for example, but much of the advice is very good and not just for weight loss or nutrition but overall health and well being.
I recommend the book to all women.
