About the Author
More About the Author
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?"

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.
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 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.
UPDATE. Giving it 5 stars now because I got my answers and feel amazing. The book suggests getting hormones, DHEAS, and thyroid tested via ZRT labs. Since I suspected I might have adrenal fatigue in addition to estrogen dominance, I sought out ZRT labs and got tested without a Dr. by joining Canary Club. BINGO. I learned that indeed, my cortisol and testosterone were below normal. Also that I was under-dosing my progesterone by following what John Lee's book said (1x day) instead of what Female Brain Gone Insane suggested (2x day.) Additionally, I learned that my thyroid is fine, so I don't have any lingering doubt if that was part of my problem. So I added all the adrenal fatigue supplements in addition to Mia's basic supplement plan.Read more ›
