Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Harvard physician’s scientifically proven method to improve your physical and mental health by optimizing your hormones in your 30s, 40s, and beyond.

Dr. Sara Gottfried refuses to accept the traditional medical thinking that feeling cranky, asexual, tapped out, and sleep-deprived is just part of being female and aging, and that prescription medication will fix all problems. In The Hormone Cure, she combines natural therapies with rigorous scientific testing to help women feel fully alive, especially in the years prior to menopause. Using an informative questionnaire to identify common symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as insomnia, low sex drive, lack of energy, moodiness, hot flashes, and more; detailing causes; and offering solutions in non-judgmental and thoughtful language, Dr. Gottfried provides a novel plan based on solid scientific research. She believes you don’t find a cure at the bottom of a pill bottle.

A specialist in functional and integrative therapies and based on ten years’ study of cutting-edge techniques and ancient treatments validated by current medical research, Dr. Gottfried’s three-step treatment strategy includes: supplements and targeted lifestyle changes that address underlying deficiencies; herbal therapies; and bioidentical hormones—most available without a prescription. Easy to understand and highly illuminating, The Hormone Cure demonstrates how balancing your hormones can actually cure underlying health issues, alleviate symptoms, and give women a life of increased energy, sensuality, and resilience.

With an Introduction by Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom.

Review:

"At the forefront of this scientifically advanced yet deeply humane guide to hormonal heath — and the complex problems that result from imbalances — are the views of the relatively new area of functional medicine: lifestyle changes as the first line of attack; a close patient-physician partnership for wellness; and the notion that, despite a myriad of confusing and sometimes overlapping symptoms, many conditions and diseases have a few basic root causes. Through in-depth questionnaires and case studies, bioengineer, gynecologist, and yoga instructor Gottfried guides readers to first identify their main hormonal problems (disordered levels of critical hormones like estrogen, thyroid, and the stress hormone cortisol) and then apply a combination of do-it-yourself remedies (diet, herbs, supplements, etc., to reset the scale. Gottfried calls hormonal balance a 'soul-infused pie chart,' which must be achieved for optimal health, including mood, sleep, weight, immunity, and longevity. For many women juggling careers and families, eliminating caffeine, sugar, and gluten from their diet and devoting time to achieving calm through self-care may seem like climbing a mountain, but Gottfried says that realigning hormones is much easier than continuing in a cycle that seriously impairs quality of life. As readers wade through detailed scientific explanations and extensive recommendations ranging from fish oil and ginseng to yoga-based breathing and meditation, they will be cheered by her appealing sense of humor and disarming candor. And likely, many of them will also be stirred by Gottfried's sympathetic understanding to stay the course. Agent, Katherine Cowles." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Or they’re led to believe that the answer can be found only at the bottom of a bottle of prescription pills.
