Amazon.com Review

Are you a woman between 35 and 50 experiencing PMS, migraine headaches, sudden weight gain, fatigue, irritability, tender or lumpy breasts, memory loss, fibroids, or cold hands and feet? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of premenopause. Even if you're a decade or more away from menopause, your hormones may already be out of balance, usually caused by an excess of estrogen and a deficiency of progesterone, say the authors of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause. John Lee, M.D., is a well-known advocate of the benefits of natural progesterone and the author of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause. Jesse Hanley, M.D., adds sensitivity to the emotional and spiritual aspects of premenopause. The authors recommend natural progesterone cream to balance your hormones, eliminate premenopausal symptoms, and make you feel better. They also discuss the dangers of xenohormones--substances not found in nature that have hormonal effects--frequently found in pesticides, solvents, plastics, and hormone-treated meat. The book presents common symptoms of premenopause with suggested natural treatments (progesterone cream, diet, vitamins, and herbs) and substances to avoid, plus additional chapters on diet and exercise. Many case studies help to bring the information into perspective. If you are premenopausal (or close to someone who is), this is a valuable resource. --Joan Price

PREVENT A HYSTERECTOMY: I write this after just having had surgery (abdominal hysterectomy) two weeks ago ... and having come across the book only two weeks prior to surgery. If only two or three months ago I'd been aware of Dr. Lee's book, I truly believe my hysterectomy could have been prevented, nevertheless, refusing my doctor's recommended HRT, I tried the progesterone cream and was amazed with the immediate results: headaches were alleviated; improved mental acuity, energy, and skin tone. Had I known of the book's contents 15 years ago, I believe I would have saved myself from not only surgery and fibrous breast tissue, but numerous other debilitating ailments: migraines, clinical depression, fatigue, lack of concentration along with other symptoms which Dr. Lee listed due to estrogen dominance. My doctor did what he believed to be best for me, however, being conventional, he prescribed therapy which only enhanced the estrogen dominance, leading ultimately to excessive bleeding and anemia. Only after surgery was he able to tell me either my ovary or uterus was four times normal size -- hyperestrogen (loaded with it)! His recommendation had been a total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy (removal of uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes and both ovaries), however, he honored my request to save both ovaries if possible ... (even though only one remains). If not for Dr. Lee, I'd never have requested such. Even though I have regrets of not knowing earlier of this informative book, I am extremely thankful for the knowledge of progesterone cream application versus conventional HRT. I look forward to renewed life ahead! Thank you, Dr. Lee! ... P.S. I'm hunting for a doctor who practices alternative medicine.

For years, I've suffered with so many strange symptoms and now I find out it is almost certainly my hormone levels. I've been through hell and back so would someone please tell me after (all the years of hospitals, psychologists, tests, pain and lost opportunities due to illness) WHY some doctor didn't have a clue?
I have all the classic symptoms and have for years. But I had to read a book to find out what was going on. Migraines, hair falling out, debilitating feet/leg cramps, dry skin, dry eye, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, total exhaustion, muscle weakness, very low blood pressure, low thyroid, low adrenal function...do I need to go on?
I did the "spit test" recommended in the book and sure enough--my hormones are screwed up. I started on Progest cream (which I got at Whole Foods for $26) and within 5 days, my energy levels alone have risen dramatically and my hair has stopped falling out. I'm at day 20 in the cycle and still have feet cramps, have a migraine today but my new doctor (Dr. Sharma in Millburn NJ) tells me this stuff may take up to 3 months to show its total effects. She also wrote a prescription up which I'm going to have filled at Liberty Drugs in Chatham NJ which is exactly what I need.
Someone needs to start educating doctors. And women need to start insisting that we get better treatment.
I'm so disgusted...and so incredibly relieved.

I have read this fine book as well as the earlier volume by Dr. Lee "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause". I feel that both of these books contain information that every woman and really every person needs to know. We live in a dangerous world. A world full of invisible or unnoticed chemicals that impact the reproductive and general health of all of us, especially those of us in the industrialized world. It is essential to know what is happening and how chemicals are changing our health. Forewarned is forearmed. Many problems that we are calling "normal" in today's world are not normal at all and speak to the need for balance of our hormones. Men and women will benefit from this information. Young women are not immune from the dangers in the environmentthat cause hormonal changes. Please read this. Don't have invasive surgery without first reading this book, it could change your life.

I have now read every perimenopause book out there. Dr. Lee's book is a good resource for perimenopause but hands down the best book I have read (and my baby boomer friends agree) is Ann Louise Gittleman's Before the Change.

Format: Paperback
Let me first qualify that I used to be a researcher for a major health magazine--I've got a good medical background and am familiar with doctors often being very opinionated about their theories being THE correct theories.
I'm 38 and have been dealing with health problems for a while, one of them being thinning bones (I'm nearly at osteoporosis level, found through a DEXA bone scan), despite taking appropriate calcium supplements. My doctor just recommended taking more supplements. Went to another doctor who recommended I get my hormones measured. [By the way, many doctors resist doing this; however, the blood test is reliable and accurate--just make sure you know what stage of your cycle you're in so that you can understand the results of your tests.] Mine came back with progesterone being TOO HIGH (despite having most of the symptoms that Dr. Lee contributes to LOW progesterone), and my estradiol (estrogen) level was abyssmally low--nearly that of a post-menopausal woman! This explains a lot.
Dr. Lee likes to blame so many things in his book on "estrogen dominance" yet I think he's waaaaay off on many of his "scientific" conclusions. So many of them left me wanting to see his references and to ask how he came to those conclusions while discounting other obvious factors. In addition, p.333: "Some women who have irregular bleeding are prescribed estrogen by their doctors. There's really no good reason to give estrogen to women who are still menstruating... the very fact that you're menstruating indicates that you're very unlikely to be deficient in estrogen." WRONG, as my own case shows! [I'd recommend reading the book "Screaming to be Heard" by Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.--much better science, and counters some of Lee's claims with evidence.
