Dr. Sara Gottfried refuses to accept the traditional medical thinking that feeling cranky, asexual, tapped out, and sleepdeprived is just part of being female and aging, and that prescription medication will fix all problems. Offering solutions in nonjudgmental and thoughtful language, Dr. Gottfried provides a novel plan based on solid scientific research. She believes you dont find a cure at the bottom of a pill bottle. A specialist in functional and integrative therapies and based on ten years study of cuttingedge techniques and ancient treatments validated by current medical research, Dr. Gottfrieds threestep treatment strategy includes supplements and targeted lifestyle changes that address underlying deficiencies, herbal therapies, and bioidentical hormone—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.
