Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For the millions of women who experience a variety of unpleasant and stressful symptoms related to perimenopause, this book offers a straightforward discussion, explaining which medical tests and treatments, including alternative therapy, women should consider. Jackson, who owns a medical practice dedicated to hormonal health in Oregon, finds that women either have no symptoms, mild symptoms that become more pronounced right before menopause, or significant symptoms that require treatment in order to continue their daily routines. She explains the relationship among estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, and their impact on depression, sex drive, weight and headaches. And she presents her information clearly, explaining bodily functions in a way that lay readers can understand. Jackson is quick to suggest alternatives to medication such as stress reduction exercises, change in diet and exercise, although she also discusses the variety of estrogen and other hormonal treatments available. Appendices listing recommended reading for specific problems, products, vitamin and herbal supplement resources and hormone-testing labs, in addition to a glossary, add further value to this instructive book.

This book is a godsend. After reading it I learned that I'm not losing my grip on sanity...just on my hormones. Now when I go to the doctor, I'll be aware of the tests that should be ordered, how to understand their results, and what alternatives I have for treatment.
I love the fact that the book doesn't have to be read cover-to-cover. I can turn to the chapter about whatever concerns me most about my health. Dr. Jackson has written the medical information in an easy to understand manner, and her advice sounds like something my best friend would say.
I definitely recommend this book to every woman who has concerns about not only menopause, but hormone problems at any stage in life.

If you want to find out more about hormone panel testing, then this is a good book to read. I wasn't, and most of the book focuses on hormone testing and adjusting hormonal imbalances. It is clear that the author believes this is THE treatment. It doesn't matter that other doctors will tell you this test isn't helpful or accurate, the author states: "If you are fed this line, don't swallow it." And she may very well be correct but I tended to get annoyed at her inferences that her way is the way. I gave it 3 stars because it does give some good and thorough information about the hormones and information about some of the symptoms. And it did list labs in the appendix that will do hormone testing for consumers through saliva. But when I went through them, there was really only one that would do the testing w/o a healthcare person. Some states don't allow the consumer to do this direct testing. It's an ok book, just not what I was looking for.

After looking for a long time, with little luck, into woman's hormone issues a friend recommended this book. It is exactly what I was looking for. It should be required reading for all doctors. I am very grateful to the writer because she provides hope along with valuable information regarding hormones followed up with practical answers/solutions. Worth the time and the money.

After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and high cholesterol several years ago I've struggled to find a balance. When I started having hot flashes and increased fatigue, I went to Nisha Jackson's Southern Oregon clinic. It was there that I first glanced at "The Hormone Survival Guide for Perimenopause: Balance Your Hormones Naturally". The book offered what I thought was a common sense approach to women's health and positiive suggestions for how to feel good. Soon afterwards I ordered the book from Amazon and had my hormones tested.

I'm happy to report that since getting my hormones tested and getting on a treatment program to address my hormone deficiencies, I'm feeling better; more energy, and optimistic about how this adjustment may also positively effect both my cholesterol numbers and my overall outlook on life.

Format: Paperback
Author Nisha Jackson, Ph.D., has specialized in women's health since 1991. She has dedicated her practice to hormonal wellness and is owner of Southern Oregon Health and Wellness, PC. Aside from her role as an author, Dr. Jackson is a radio and TV personality, national lecturer, spokesperson, and women's health advocate.
A nationwide survey by the National Women's Health Resource Center, released in November, 2003, revealed that close to 70 percent of women are confused about the safety of hormone therapy for menopausal-related symptoms. Almost half of them receive the majority of their information from media sources rather than their own healthcare provider. THE HOMONE SURVIVAL GUIDE is the perimenopausal woman's answer to any question or concern she may have related to this phase of her life. Dr. Jackson offers readers a 7-step program designed to balance hormones in this down-to-earth, easy-to-understand book chock-full of information related to perimenopausal issues. Hormonal fluctuation, hormone testing, hormonal treatment, diet as an effective way to create hormonal balance, stress, PMS, libido, thyroid problems, hot-flashes, and many more symptoms related to this syndrome are discussed, as well as ways to deal with them. No question goes unanswered and every symptom is addressed in this edifying book.
Any woman who is seeking a natural way to relieve perimenopausal symptoms should read this wonderfully clear, self-educating book. A book that should be in every doctor's office, as well as every home, to be read by women approaching or engaged in this phase in their life and shared with others.
