Editorial Reviews

Review

Natural Hormone Replacement For Women Over 45 shows how natural hormone replacement offers a safe and effective alternative for the treatment of menopause. Conventional hormone replacement treatment as prescribed by most medical doctors in the United States, relies on unnatural versions of the hormones progesterone and estrogen that are dangerous and completely foreign to a woman's body. Risky and unpleasant, conventional hormone replacement treatment has long been women's only choice because of the influence of the drug companies. Natural Hormone Replacement For Women Over 45 provides compelling evidence that natural hormone replacement provides all the benefits of conventional treatment, but with drastically reduced risks of unwanted side effects and cancer. Readers of Natural Hormone Replacement For Women Over 45 will learn how to end hot flashes and other discomforts of menopause; cut the risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and cancer; extend their youthful years; invigorate their sex life; decrease the risk of Alzheimer's disease and senility; locate a pharmacy that prepares natural hormones; and find a physician who prescribes them. Natural Hormone Replacement For Women Over 45 is must reading for all women facing menopause and the infirmities of the aging process. -- Midwest Book Review

More About the Author

Dr. Jonathan V. Wright is a pioneer in natural therapies for health conditions and an expert in the use of bioidentical hormone replacement for men and women.

A Harvard University and University of Michigan graduate, Dr. Jonathan V. Wright is a fore-runner in research and application of natural treatments for healthy aging and illness. Along with Alan Gaby, M.D., he has since 1976 accumulated a file of over 50,000 research papers about diet, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and other natural substances from which he has developed non-patent medicine (non-"drug") treatments for health problems. Since 1983, Drs. Wright and Gaby have regularly taught seminars about these methods to tens of thousands of physicians in these United States and overseas.

He was the first to develop and introduce the use of comprehensive patterns of bio-identical hormones (including estrogens, progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone) in 1982 and (at Meridian Valley Laboratory) directed the development of tests to ensure their safe use. He teaches use and laboratory monitoring of bio-identical hormones at several seminars each year.

He also originated successful natural treatment for elimination of childhood asthma, developed treatment to stop vision loss or improve vision in the majority of individuals with "dry" macular degeneration, was the first to use aldosterone to reverse age-related hearing loss, discovered the effect of iodine on estrogen metabolism and cobalt on steroid detoxification, popularized the use of D-mannose treatment for E. coli urinary tract infection, developed effective natural treatment for seborrheic dermatitis, allergic and viral conjunctivitis, and Osgood-Schlatter's disease.

Dr. Wright founded the Tahoma Clinic (1973), Meridian Valley Laboratory (1976), and the Tahoma Clinic Foundation (1996). Tahoma Clinic was established to approach disease by natural means and emphasize correction of imbalances in the body that lead to disease. The infamous 1992 FDA Tahoma Clinic "raid" ("The Great B-Vitamin Bust") was a major impetus for Congressional reform of vitamin/mineral regulation. Dr. Wright continues to be an advocate for patient freedom of choice in healthcare.

Internationally known for his books and medical articles, Dr. Wright has authored or co-authored 14 books, selling over 1.5 million copies, with two texts achieving best selling status: "Book of Nutritional Therapy" and "Guide to Healing with Nutrition". He authors "Nutrition and Healing", a monthly newsletter emphasizing nutritional medicine that reaches over 118,000 in the USA, and another 15,000 or more worldwide.

On April 28th, 2012 Dr. Jonathan V. Wright was inducted into the Orthomolecular Hall of Fame in recognition of his outstanding contributions to orthomolecular medicine over the years. He joins other well-known and respected pioneers honored by the organization since 2004. Click here for more info about the Hall of Fame (www.orthomolecular.org).

Like many women, I thought the only way to deal with perimenopause and menopause was with Premarin [made with pregnant horse estrogen, Yuck] and other hormones pushed by large pharmecuetical companies. This book was a real eye opener for me. It explains how the estrogens naturally found in a woman's body can't be patented, because they are just natural bodily hormones. Therefore, the drug giants who court all the doctors have no financial incentive to tout naturally occurring hormones. Instead, they push the horse estrogens, and other unnatural products, which cause side effects.
This book explains how a woman with a good doctor can get a pharmacy to mix a custom-blended natural hormone replacement with few, if any, side effects, because it's what's in your body already.
I took this book to my doctor who said of course he'd be happy to prescribe natural hormones as suggested in the book. Had I not brought it up, I, too would have been prescribed that horrible Premarin or Prempro, made from the urine of pregnant [and abused] mares.
I've spoken with other women over 45-50 who take the horse estrogen, Premarin [the name comes from PREgnant MARe's urINe], and they were shocked that there was an alternative their doctors had never bothered mentioning.
Anyone interested in natural health should buy this must-read, and then discuss with your doctor.

As a practicing pharmacist, it upsets me that such basic knowledge of hormones was not taught in school. Doctors aren't even taught some of the basic information Dr. Wright discusses in this book. I wish all women would read this book and I wish all doctors would open their minds to the information presented in it. For all the thousands of women I know to be using natural hormone replacement therapy, I don't know a single "unhappy customer".

This is a light, quick read, but has a great deal of information you'll have trouble learning elsewhere. Did you know that there are three kinds of Estrogen? That's just for starters. I suffered from depression and fatigue after a hysterectomy, and months of research took me to this book, a new doctor, a new prescription for "natural" hormones, and I'm a new woman, or really I got my old self back, thank God and the authors. Plus, because of this book, I am practically an expert, and I've taken control of my own health care.

Format: Paperback
I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago and have been very sick ever since but was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression and Panic Disorder. It started within a week of the surgery. (symptoms were mild at first but progressively got worse until I was bedridden. I have been declared disabled by a Social Security Disability judge. I have tried various conventional Estrogen Replacement Therapies but without much help . (pills, creams, shots, patches have caused all sorts of reactions - even borderline delirium and total incapacitation. A friend told me about this book and I immediately found an innovative GYN who worked with a compounding pharmacist who cautiously (with slow increases) prescribed this Natural Hormone Therapy for me via a cream since I don't absorb by mouth. Within one month, I began to notice a difference. I am now feeling wonderful for the first time in years - pre-hysterectomy normal. I am so thrilled that I am telling my story to all that will listen. I have friends that have seen such a dramatic change in me that they are buying the book and changing doctors to get off of the unnatural estrogen derived from horse urine they are on. This book is a must reading for all women and doctors who treat them. This information must get out -- had I known, perhaps my 5 year nightmare would have been avoided.

I am 50 years old. Due to high dose steriods used during chemotherapy, I suffered significant bone loss. Also, I am experiencing High BP and High Cholesteral as well as other menopausal symptoms. Hormone Therapy is essential to maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system and bone density. Because my breast cancer was estrogen positive..I wanted a safer treatment than Premarin...This book explains the big picture and gives hope for a safe alternative to conventional hormone therapy for living longer and having a higher quality of that extended life.

Format: Paperback
As both a female and one over 45 who is in the menopausal phase of her life, this book is incredibly helpful because it gives one an alternate view, very different from what AMA and FDA guidelines stipulate. We are in control of our bodies and can ultimately make our own decisions, but only with enough subjective information to go by. Many physicians may not be open to natural hormone replacement, but there are many who are. Women just need to read this book, among others, to become better educated about their choices regarding controlled substances being ingested into the body.
