From the Publisher
American women are finally waking up to the disastrous trends that have been occurring much too long, due to the long term use of estrogenic drugs as presented in 'The Pill' and HRT. When steroid hormones drugs are used, either in the form of the Pill or Hormone Replacement Therapy for PMS, perimenopause or menopause, estrogen levels may be raised by as much as 100 times more than what the body would normally be making. For many women, these treatments will not only create but worsen depression, anger flare-ups, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, lethargy and unpredictable mood swings. The Pill and HRT also rob the body of vital nutrients such as vitamin B's, E, C, folic acid, and zinc which further comprises physical and emotional health.
Recently, as reported in a major American media publication a very disturbing trend is coming to light with the occurrence of precocious puberty in girls as young as 7. These trends indicate that at best younger and younger girls will be exposed to the use of estrogenic products over a longer time and thus, expanding the possibly of higher breast cancer rates. The new updated and revised edition of Hormone Hersey details over eight years of research, by Ms. Sellman on the dangers of estrogen excess. This is a must read for all women, especially those who have daughters. Feedback from women around the world indicate that this title is easy to read and easy to understand these sometimes complex issues. Hormone Heresy not only identifies the issues it also helps the reader to create a plan of action to safely put themselves on the path to increased health and hormonal balance.
