Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this powerful, sanity-saving health guide, nurse practitioner Lundin, longtime researcher and director of a center for hormonal and nutritional studies, examines hormone changes including perimenopause and menopause, cutting through the fog of conflicting information over the benefits and risks of hormone therapy. Taking readers through the science behind women's life changes and often disruptive symptoms that come with them, Lundin also provides helpful information on adrenal health, identifying hormonal phases and emotional types, and ways to boost mental health with diet and supplements. Armed with Lundin's emotional rescue plan, readers will have everyday and long-range strategies for dealing with hormone changes many women continue to suffer through in silence.

About the Author

More About the Author

Mia Lundin, R.N.C., N.P. is an authority and pioneer in the field of women's health, with a specialty in treating the underlying causes of emotional symptoms experienced throughout a woman's life (PMS, postpartum depression, perimenopause, and menopause) due to brain chemistry and hormonal imbalances. Her medical expertise, fresh perspective, personal experience, and passion to improve women's health make her uniquely suited to present this material.

Lundin graduated as a registered nurse from the Ugglevik School of Stockholm and went on to earn a degree as a Certified Nurse Practitioner in obstetrics and gynecology from Harbor UCLA Medical Center. She settled in Santa Barbara, California, and became the founder and director of a thriving private health care practice, The Center for Hormonal and Nutritional Balance Inc., which attracts women from around the world. On a daily basis her patients ask, "Why didn't my doctor tell me this?" and the relief they feel after diagnosis and treatment is nothing short of miraculous.

Lundin has successfully inspired and "balanced" thousands of women using her own treatment protocol, which combines bio-identical hormones, nutritional supplements including targeted amino acid therapy, mood food, and lifestyle changes. After two decades of listening to and treating women who have been "falling apart," she knows intimately and can speak directly to their many questions including: "Why do I feel like I am losing it? " How can I cope with the emotional changes I am experiencing?" and "Will I ever feel like myself again?"

This book should be required reading for every female.

Female Brain Gone Insane

What a great book. I learned so much about myself.

I have been off HRT for 5 yrs because of breast cancer. Each year more problems arise. Recently I have developed high anxiety, brain fog, memory loss & disliking being around people (I use to be an extrovert.)

Mia Lundin's book has defined my path for the future. I am seeing results already. The neurotransmitter supplements mentioned in the book according to my symptons have helped me get back my old self or close to it. I am less anxious, enjoying friends & have my memory back. I am still working on the brain fog.

The book starts off w/how to use this book, next is why & how this brain change happens, on to identifying where you are in the process, life improvement techniques, & lastly excellent resources. There is an excellent Emotional Rescue Plan that readers can complete & begin their healing.

I have seen & read many health practitioners: western, eastern, holistic; but no book has given such clear steps & definitive answers to the changes of the female brain & its repercussions on one's life.

At 61 years of age, I had almost given up on ever feeling 'good' again. I'd spent years going to various (and capable) doctors and other practitioners, trying anti-depressants, various supplement programs, hormone replacement (including bio-identical), you name it. There would be a little relief, but I never felt like things ever came all together.

Then I discovered Mia Lundin. Finally there was someone who focused on me as a whole woman, with a myriad of interconnecting patterns and symptoms that, of course, mutually affected each other. The goal now was to find the balance and the combination of therapies that would make things click. I was more than ready to give up the soul-depleting fatigue, the mood swings, the depressed energy levels, and to get out of the emotional basement that I had been in for so long. Mia held out to me that possibility.

Not all of us are privileged to be able to work one on one with Mia. That's why I am so excited that she has written this beautifully comprehensive book. The Female Brain Gone Insane is a tool any woman can use to discover what actions and therapies will work best for her in order to restore balance and sanity to her life. The book includes tools for self-assessment, a description of what tests are needed and how to ask your doctor for them or where to go to have them done yourself, explanations of how brain chemistry and hormonal imbalances affect us and what we can do to change that. All this and more are presented here in clearly written, easy to comprehend language.

Female Brain Gone Insane allows and encourages every woman to become her own strongest ally and advocate. I wish it had been available to me when I was nearing 40!!!! Thank you, Mia Lundin!

I LOVE this book! I purchased my own copy after first checking out our library's. I was so impressed and so grateful that they had it, that I emailed the library a thank you. Since then I have purchased 2 copies as gifts and recommended to all the women I know. This is the best book I have read so far on general female health. It's very easy to read and follow. Mia has outlined four steps to help you have better health based on your age and emotional type. It doesn't group all women into just one category! I love the chapters on the adrenal and thyroid. But best of all, she does NOT promote her own products! And of course, it's not just about supplements. But what you eat, exercise, relax, etc. Mia must be a very smart and caring lady. She shares her story as well as some of her patients. I would love to meet her someday and tell her what a difference her book made in my life. Every woman should read this book, and follow her advice.

OMG, this book was a Godsend!

I was doing some research on perimenopause and found Louise Gittelman's book. But then Amazon suggested this book. and it turned out to be just what the doctor ordered.

After deciding to go to law school at age 41, I thought my brain had become mush. In actuality, the brain fog, irritability, weight gain, morning migraines, night sweats and other conditions I had been experiencing were symptoms of perimenopause.

This book tells you EXACTLY what to do to get relief and feel like yourself again. As soon as I started eating what the author suggests, avoided eating what she says not to eat, started taking the vitamins and nutritional supplements, and started exercising at least 30 minutes a day, I felt like a million bucks. And to boot, I lost 8 lbs in one month! My recommendation is to definitely get this book.

This book really helped me to understand what was going on in my body when I felt so tired and sick during PMS after I weaned my baby. I would really recommend reading it! It explains different scenarios of various women and it's helpful to see that others are having similar symptoms and to read about the biological causes of them. It makes you feel relieved that you can be your normal self again soon. One thing- you might not need to take the risk of hormone therapy in order to get better. I didn't want to, because there is breast cancer in my family. For a few years before I had my second child, I took Chasteberry (Vitex) once a day. I felt a million times better- it helps your body produce more progesterone. Lately it hasn't been working though. Good luck!
UPDATE: I just learned in the health food store today that there are two types of Vitex. One is the "fruit" and it doesn't work for women's issues. That's the one I bought by accident after I had my second child and that's why it wasn't working! The second type is the "extract"- it should say what % of Agnuside is in it. THAT one is a miracle. There are tons of studies on it. It even healed the proliferation of uterine tissue in one study. So, voila! Hope it helps you. You can take it for as long as you want according to a book by a scientist (unlike what some websites say). I am going to try it again because it totally helped me before.
In the past few months I tried a prescription of natural progesterone pills (from the compounding pharmacy) but it made me feel super depressed and also hurt my bladder badly.
UPDATE 6/2011 Beware- don't eat the 30% protein diet that this book recommends. It will make you so sick! It gave me a horrible stomachache that lasted every time I ate for months. Read "The China Study.
