I am an author, freelance writer and screenwriter. I have a degree in psychology and screenwriting. My favorite type of book is mostly in the nonfiction category, such as self-improvement and metaphysics as I am fascinated with knowledge. My latest books published include: "Script to Novel, Turn Your Screenplay into a Novel," and "Your Life Story Could Be a Best Seller."

This book was very interesting, and I think that indeed depression can often be caused by a hormone imbalance. Certainly the author's questioning the medical establishment at declaring depression an illness rather than a symptom of an illness is very legitimate. My friend's depression has to have a underlying cause, or at least a major contributor. While it's true that one's own mind can turn in negative circles and make things worse, something has to influence that tendency. This epidemic of anti-depressant prescriptions in North America is a sure sign of medicine gone wrong.
My biggest complaint about this book is it's really just a feel-good, anecdotal work with no reference to science, scholarship, research papers, or authoritative works. She answers the question as to why there are no bioidentical hormones available at a pharmacy chain with the lame response, because there's no money in it for the pharmaceutical industry. While I think this has some truth in it, she does not back this up with any evidence. She describes in detail what a bioidentical hormone is without referring to any academic work on the subject, or studies on the risks and benefits of such therapies (and ignores the fact that some bioidentical hormones also come from horse blood, just like regular birth control pills do).Read more ›
Well written, clear and profoundly insightful - that's how I'd describe this amazing work. I highly recommend it to any woman who wishes to know more about why she is feeling what she is feeling and better still what to do about it.
Great read and more importantly timely and helpful!

There was quite a bit of reference from a holistic approach for consideration. It is a quick read and a good reference to begin the conversation with your doctor.Published 22 months ago by Wanda
