The Hormone Cure demonstrates how balancing your hormones can cure underlying health issues and result in restored sleep, greater energy, improved mood, easy weight loss, increased productivity, and many more benefits. Sounds too good to be true? It really isn’t. This book is for all women but those over 40 will appreciate it more since that is the time you notice what hormones can do to you.
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.
