Review

Hormone Heresy is a book that examines and questions the use of the most widely used treatment of menopausal symptoms in the world. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It's author Sherrill Sellman, while researching menopause and what was happening to her own body, discovered a number of truths that have been disguised for decades. It was simply the changes she experienced in her own body that led her to investigate menopause and its various treatments. What she found was that the pharmaceutical industry has for years, down played the dramatic physical, psychological and emotional effects of HRT on women. Sellman recognises that there is a major change happening in society, where women are able to obtain more information about the subject ... Hormone Heresy is ... designed to empower and inform women to make the best choices for their bodies and their greater health. -- The Jewish News - Melbourne Australia

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. Please be sure to read Terri's story it just could be yours or someone you know.

"Hormone Heresy" has been a revelation for me, and has given me the information and confidence to make major changes regarding my physical health. I have spent over 25 years in the traditional, allopathic healthcare environment and was always convinced, both as a patient and an "insider", that continued use of HRT would keep me healthy and slow down the aging process. I have also been a proponent / consumer of alternative healthcare therapies for several years, but did not realize that my hormonal health was as compromised as it was. After reading Ms. Sellman's data and her observations of the politics and dynamics associated with women's health, I recognized that many of my health problems, symptoms, and lack of energy were directly associated with my body being "over-estrogened", causing imbalances in many areas of my system. I have followed her suggestions regarding natural hormones, supplements, and diet, and have chosen to pay attention to my own body's wisdom rather than the misguided advice of unenlightened physicians. As a result, I am healthier, clearer-minded, and have more energy than I have experienced in years. I am 51 years old, 17 years post-op total hysterectomy, and spent 16 years on Premarin. Prior to my hysterectomy, I spent 10 years on birth control pills. (I've done myself a lot of hormone damage!) Today, I feel more vital than I did 20 years ago, and I would not be in the balanced physical condition that I am had I not discovered this book.
It is as important to me that we strive to become healthy and balanced in our own bodies as we work to heal our environment and natural resources. For this reason, I have passed along several copies of this book to friends and family. You will want to keep this book as continued reference, and you also will want to share copies with other women whose well-being is important to you.

If you are a woman, you MUST read this book. I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I have done intense amounts of research on the subject since that time. The author has put together in one book the information it took me months to collect. Caution! If you read this book, you will never again be able to look at yourself or your Doctors with the same thought patterns. "Where was I when this information became known?" Why didn't my Doctors inform me of this knowledge before my body parts had to be cut off and my life threatened?

Sherrill Sellman's: Hormone Heresy is a must read!! The many questions about hormones and our womanhood have been addressed in a sympathetic and informative manner. This book probes and encourages us to take charge of our health, physically, emotionally and spiritually. A wonderful text to keep coming back to. Particularly enjoyed the scope of information; the author skillfully combining scientific data with social commentary.

Please don't wait another minute! Read Sherrill Sellman's comprehensive book "Hormone Heresy"; her world class research and insight are unprecedented. EVERY woman and every MAN who loves a woman MUST read this book. It is easy to understand yet the depth is extraordinary. Lay people, pharmacists, chemists and doctors will gain invaluable insight. I believe it will prove one of the most influential health related books of the decade, as it will improve and save women's lives from teens to seniors--maybe even yours or a loved one.

Hormone Heresy is a book that all women who want to be in charge of their health MUST read. The book is clearly written and is highly informative and will provide women with an informed choice about H.R.T.
Women must know the information in this book.
Much of the information is based on research and will shock many readers.
This book gives women the information they need to reclaim the power to make decisions on H.R.T.
You will recognise yourself in the illuminating case studies and know you are not alone or going mad.
This is a courageous book and I applaud Ms. Sellman for her great contribution to te health and empowerment of women.
Men who partner women on the pill or women who are menopausal, must read this book as it will help them to understand what is going on and can be empowering to them also.
This book can change your life and maybe save it.

This book should be read by, and placed in, every gynecologist's office in the world. Sherrill has been able to transform all the gobbledygook offered by "Doctors" into a language that every female over the age of 20 can understand. The book is so informative that even my husband understands me better. I have placed several copies of this book in my beauty salon so women of all ages can learn the real truth about their bodies.

Format: Paperback
If you can get past Ms. Sellman's vitriolic diatribe against the Pharmaceutical industry, and Male physicians, there is a wealth of information every woman should know. I could certainly do without her insipid social commentary. One of the worst parts is near the end of the book, under the heading of 'Creating Sacred Feminine Power', we are encouraged to "Take time either by yourself or with friends to have a full moon meditation". Isn't that sweet? What the hell does that mean? I hate crap like that. Because her research seems so thorough I trudged through that kind of psycho-babble garbage, to get to the very informative facts. This is another one of those, "Women are Saints, Men are very very Bad", books. Read it for the facts, and try to ignore her definite prejudices. I for one, adore men, and her advise on natural projesterone just makes me able to love them more.
