In the Mood Again helped me understand what was going on with my body. I'm 43 and even though my husband and I are deeply in love, things in the bedroom were not something I looked forward to anymore. Dr. Randolph and Genie James changed all that for me, with several simple steps to my lifestyle and diet. My hormones are balanced now and I'm "in the Mood again." My husband could not be happier! Thank you for this great insight and direction.
I think this book is full of information for balancing hormones and is very helpful for women as they get older and have health issues. I'm 55 and after reading this I located a bioidentical doctor who prescribed progesterone, estrogen and testosterone for me. It has helped me feel better and I feel cheerier.
We all accept and understand, I think, that hormone replacement therapy, has many benefits.Not at all least among these is it's ability to boost libido and sexuality. This is equally true for both men and women. That aside, HRT has many other now proven life enhancing effects. All of these this book explains in some detail. To that extent, this book is very useful and I would applaud it. But here's the problem: We all of us suspect that there may be some risks adherent to HRT for both men and women. Now, in the light of recent studies, if anything the risks are greater for women than they are for men. So what's the solution? The solution is to change from "pharmaceutical grade" hormones to "bio-equivalent grade" hormones. If you do that you will reduce your risks of running into side effects. Or so this book would have you believe. Put another way, this says: Don't trust the regulated pharmaceutical industry, thrust instead the less regulated corner compounding pharmacist. Fine, I will go among with that. But before I do can I have a bit of evidence please? I have read through this book now and nowhere can I find one shred of evidence, one even small clinical trial, that convinces me that bio-equivalent or bio-identical hormones offer any more protection from ill-effects than do their pharmaceutical equivalents. To this extent then, I'm sorry, this book is seriously flawed.
