Format: Mass Market Paperback
Back-to-back, I've read this book and the other one by Dr. John Lee, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Pre Menopause: Balance Your Hormones And Your Life From Thirty To Fifty." Although the one just mentioned is more pertinent to my age group, and both books cover much of the same ground, I chose to review this book because it seems to be more in-depth. Both books, however, are laden with valuable information for women of any age.

The late Dr. Lee had done his homework even after medical school ended and it showed within both of his books. Everything is explained simply, concisely, thoroughly and in easily understandable terms.

Topics include: biochemistry of the body and synthetic drugs and hormones, mechanisms of the body, glands and functions, the estrogen myth and results of HRT study, female cancers and causes, autoimmune disorders, pros of natural progesterone and details of all relevant hormones, the pharmaceutical community and conventional medicine practices, illness and natural prevention, nutrition and exercise, osteoporosis and bone re-building, vitamins, herbs and minerals, heart disease and strokes, insulin and glucose, thyroid problems, liver health and many, many more that tie everything together so sensibly.

Without the specific label of a holistic doctor, Dr. Lee obviously believed and practiced a more natural way for his patients to live with optimal health and well-being. His books attest to the facts that natural is always best; synthetic drugs will always have side effects because they are foreign substances to our bodies; radical surgery is not always the best answer and menopause is not a to-be-feared disease.

As one who had a 15-year-long battle with all the "joys" of menopause -- insomnia, hot-flashes, night sweats, brain fog, etc -- I can tell you this book is a Godsend. I finally found someone who could really talk knowledgeably about my problems and give some firm recommendations that were tried and tested in a medical setting and had benefitted hundreds of women in Dr. Lee's own clinical practice. I also found a wonderful treasure trove of information about osteoporosis, often not discussed in connection with menopause, and a condition that is usually treated with estrogen. Dr. Lee gives the reader a full load of good information about the benefits of natural progesterone for bone health. I am profoundly grateful! Get the book! You'll be glad you did!

This little $8.00 paperback book changed the way I look at the medications I was taking, and now I am approaching menopause with a new, true understanding. I have a natural, over-the-counter bio-identical HRT plan that has quickly worked to make me feel better.

Dr. John Lee's book is much more than your typical clinical info about "what to expect when you feel like a fading old bag slogging through menopause", but it does have a great deal of clinical info. But it's really about ALL of the female-related medical conditions that exist. It's for women of all ages, from those in their 20s to those super-seniors in their 80s and 90s. And it's about how all of us of all ages will benefit from bio-identical progesterone cream. The book talks about natural progesterone's history, clinical studies, usage, and how the medical community continues to prescribe fake chemical/synthesized meds because they can't make money from a natural product than can't be patented. Dr. Lee talks about the soaring rates of osteoporosis, breast cancer, etc., and how these are generally man-made diseases in industrialized countries.

Dr. Lee discusses the following: osteoporosis (see the clinical trials in the book that prove progesterone cream prevents and CURES osteoporosis for women of all ages, even seniors) fibroids, cystic breasts, hair loss related to PCOS/androgenic alopecia and hair loss from "The Change", PMS symptoms, and the incredibly uncomfortable changes peri- and menopausal and post-menopausal women suffer through. Progesterone cream is great for breast cancer patients, those who have had hysterectomies, heart disease, polycystic ovaries (PCOS), endometriosis, vaginitis, migraines, cholesterol issues, and those trying to switch from conventional HRT to a natural regimen.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I came across this book, I was totally intimidated by the subject of menopause and hormone replacement therapy; this is no longer the case! Although a little on the technical side, I found this book to be extremely thorough in helping me understand that I do not need to go the route of traditional HRT. I've used the bioidentical progesterone cream since 2002, and at 52 I've only had two (2) incidents of night sweats and hot flashes because I'd slacked off on using the cream. After each incident, I started back using the natural progesterone cream and have had no reoccuring symptoms. In fact, I feel great!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Women at every stage of life should read "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause", "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Pre-Menopause" and "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer".

In an era before the latest studies, Dr. Lee was advising against artificial estrogen and the combination tablets that are made of Premarin with artificial progesterone for relief of menopause symptoms. These are not bio-identical and now they have once and for all been proven dangerous in the highly publicized studies.

The late Dr. Lee had nothing whatever to sell except some very important information. You make the best decisions when you have the most competent information.

Dr. Lee's outstanding main contribution was in making known the uses and significant benefits of natural progesterone cream, information you probably will NOT hear from your doctor, since this extremely beneficial natural cream happens to be available over-the-counter without prescription. You can begin benefitting from this cream, available in most health food stores, as early as your 20's or as late as your 90's but as there are many imitation products, you need Dr. Lee's book(s) to guide you correctly.

Unlike the synthetic prescribed "progestins," (fake progesterone), this cream is bio-identical, having the same chemistry as progesterone made by the body. It is derived from plants and is applied on the skin, being well-absorbed.

It is a wonderful supplement with many benefits, the most important of which regards our skeletal structure. For women, bone is automatically and continually lost very rapidly starting around age 50, leading to osteoporosis.
