I just finished reading DL Berkson's "Safe Hormones, Smart Women" and I recommend this book to any woman, from her 20's thru her 80's, because it informs in an understandable way that sheds light on so much conflicting information. Berkson has a real gift for taking complex information and making it readable and enjoyable to boot! I'm an RN with an undergrad nutrition degree, and Berkson has given me back that original revved up inspiration I had for the field of nutrition so long ago-thank you Lindsey! Your enthusiasm and boundless humor kept me reading your book until the very end. And hormones?? For nurses and lay folks alike, this stuff can be confusing and Berkson has again managed to hand carry priceless information directly to us in a lighthearted, sisterly, yet intellectually stimulating way. This will be a resource book you will keep on your shelves for years to come.

This is the book to read if you want to know all about bioidentical hormones. The book is backed by many references and I bookmarked alot of pages. The only problem is she forgot an index! But overall, Lindsey knows her stuff!

I didn't know how much I didn't know until I read this book. Safe Hormones Smart Women is a gold mine of a book that no woman (or physician working with hormones) should be without. Lindsey Berkson has done all the digging, and has left no stone unturned on her mission to get the whole truth and nothing but the truth about hormones out to her readers. She has done an outstanding job of compiling, simplifying and organizing massive amounts of scientifically based information, resulting in the most comprehensive and user-friendly book on this subject that I have ever come across. Her easy-to-read conversational style of writing is punctuated with her own brand of humor that will keep you laughing while you're learning . . . lots and lots!

Hormones are the reasons why a woman's body can change from one day to the next. "Safe Hormones, Smart Women" is a discussion of hormones and how to understand them, and what they can do to affect a woman's day to day life, and most importantly, how to control them . Weight issues, breast health, diet, and more, "Safe Hormones, Smart Women:" is an advisory of how to get one's biology under control, highly recommended.

Clear content. I did not know much before about hormone replacement therapy and bio-identical hormones. After reading this book, I feel better prepared to discuss the issue with my doctor. Great effort has been made to make the information accessible even to people without good knowledge of the body chemistry. Highly recommend.
