This was such an educational book that is a must read for all women no matter their age!

Each woman has a different menopausal experience and if yours is not good then read Wiley's book and Dr Uzzi Reiss's book "Natural Hormone Balance for Women".
Nancy C. De Young
I wasn't at all bothered by the song titles and largely ignored them, and felt they really didn't create a problem in finding a topic I wanted to review.

I've now spent a couple of months with this book, having read all of it at least twice and chasing down many of the references. I'm a physiologist working in the area of human metabolism, and spend my working life reading and writing scientific papers, and I felt this book had the potential to be as important as "Good Calories, Bad Calories" by Gary Taubes.

I did not, like others posting here, feel confused by the writing or feel the book was in any practical way disorganized. This book is written for the lay reader and not intended to be delivered like a technical review of the literature. I wasn't at all bothered by the song titles and largely ignored them, and felt they really didn't create a problem in finding a topic I wanted to review. If I wanted to go back to something, the index was usually helpful. There was an important case in which the index was not helpful, though, and that was in returning me to the discussion on the necessity of peaking estrogen levels on progesterone receptors. I had to go into the medical literature online to track back to that because it was easier for me to find it that way. I think the main problem with the writing is that it attempts to cover a LOT, and it's therefore quite dense. It gives one a lot to track down to determine how much is really supported by the evidence and how much is stretched to fit a bias. I personally have no problem that Wiley is not medically credentialed. To me, that criticism is just a dogmatic harumph. There are journalists and statisticians writing about medicine who's work I completely respect, and Wiley does have two credentialed co-writers. I'm sure they were all able to handle the material expertly.

And yeah, it is biology not politics.

When I read this book early in September, hot off the press, I immediately felt my heart and soul cry "yes, yes, yes". I have suffered terribly through menopause with lack of sleep, hot flashes, weight gain and an underlying depression, anxiety and irritibility that was driving me and my loved ones apart. After reading the book I got right down to business - convinced my brave gynocologist to prescribe the creams (I signed a release form), used a direct lab service for the blood testing, waited for the cycle of the moon to be correct and began the protocol on September 29. I've been on it for a month and am astounded by the changes - hot flashes gone, blessed sleep returning (7 hours straight last night), brain fog lifting, creativity returning, and my good humored old self coming home. Some breast tenderness during the last part of my cycle has been the only side effect. It has also been absolutely fascinating to know where I am in my hormone cycle each day and to understand and recognize the shifts as the hormones peak and ebb.
Yes, this book is controversial...I'm willing to be the guinea pig because I want my life back...I understand the risks of an unknown protocol...all my friends are watching and waiting. I've sent about 20 copies of the book so far.
The only criticism of the book for me is that the protocol is not as clearly presented as it could be. You really need to decipher exactly what tests are needed (measure total estrogen not estradiol levels), how much cream to buy total each month (it's 9 3ml syringes of each cream)and how to use all the blood sugar info (I haven't tackled that one yet.) My costs have been about $90 for the cream per month and $75 for each blood test (only needed for the first 3 months). I have chosen to do this outside my insurance.

Format: Hardcover
I am a professional science writer. Time and again as I read this book, I marveled at how brilliantly the science was explained. This book is in the first tier of all books that translate complex scientific information so that a non-specialist can understand. If it shines in that general category, it is incandescent in the narrower category of books addressing menopause and related hormonal issues. It's "the" book against which all others on the subject should be judged because it is so very good, so very provocative. Its central argument favors bioidentical hormone replacement in a dosage pattern mimicking the hormonal cycles of young women. Even if the reader does not agree with that point of view, the book is a treasure trove of information vital to the biological life and, even more crucially, death of women in the developed world. If it has a flaw, it is the use of "menopause" in the title, which could restrict its readership to those over 40. This is a book for all women who need to know how their decisions with respect to pregnancy and lactation may relate to the when and the way of their dying.

Ladies....how many of your friends have been diagnosed with cancer...how many of your daughters take birth control pills...female cancer is an deadly epidemic and this book will tell you why it has happened and what to do.

Ms Wiley has written a great book on the overview of the BIG LIE that American medicine has (and still is) telling women.Any Dr who suggests synthetic hormones has NO CLUE and you need to RUN out of his/her office. Each woman has a different menopausal experience and if yours is not good then read Wiley's book and Dr Uzzi Reiss's book "Natural Hormone Balance for Women".

I had read over 20 books and knew I needed help, but had difficulty finding a Dr who was more interested in fixing my health than endangering it with HRT. If you want to find a Dr who can really help and prescribe just for your needs, contact the Women's International Pharmacy...go to Google and type it in...they are GREAT...they will send a list of physicians in your state who work with women to re-establish health and balance...women who have no problems with menopause have had low estrogen levels all their lives, so the loss is not as great and the symptoms are minimal.

Do yourself a favor....if you KNOW you are not yourself and are tired of feeling all the odd things menopause brings...take control of your health..find a proper Dr., do saliva tests,hair analysis,and blood tests and find out what is causing your problems! It is not an easy fix, but you will find out what your body needs to feel good again and not endanger your life...you can greatly improve the quality of your life and possibly save your daughters from real danger as they age as well. GOOD LUCK!
