Overall I liked this book. I'm only giving it three stars for reasons I describe below, but I recommend that any woman (or the men in their lives) read it and give it some thought. I bought and read this book because a friend of mine suffers from pretty constant depression and has since she hit puberty. She's been on and off anti-depressants over the years and they either don't work at all, or stop working quite quickly.

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).

Sometimes I must admit I felt confused as I talked with a dear friend and Spiritual Partner of mine. As a man, I just didn't completely grasp what she experienced although she tried desperately to help me see life from her perspective. She seemed to lack a life spirit that I thought I remembered her to have - the zest for life was gone. Then, by accident, (well there are no accidents) I was introduced to this book. At the outset I thought little about it, but as I spent time over the past few days reading it has been like a curtain has been removed and I now see more clearly what my friend has been going through.

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!

London Tracy book "For Women Only" is packed with useful information and shows you how severe despondency, dejection, and feelings of hopelessness can over-power someone's life. It's a powerful, gripping, and inspirited read. What I love most about it is how she uses her own ways to treat depression rather than right away turning to medication. I feel that this is a great book for anyone suffering from depression and can be extremely helpful. Tracy really put it down straight on paper and she knows exactly what shes talking about. Tracy is also a prolific writers, and her work is crisp and clean which really made it a joy to read.

My story is on almost every page of this book. I don't feel alone for once in my life. The week before my period is a nightmare for me and anyone around me. I also was given an antidepressant but I discontinued the medication years ago. It did not help me. I will be giving this information to my doctor and I hope she will work with me and come up with a plan for natural hormone therapy.
