I've never been the kind of person who would care about this kind of thing. But after a very frustrating year, I was extremely frustrated with my doctors. I'm in my early 30's(!) and have been having numerous symptoms that my doctors said weren't related and it couldn't possibly be premenapause because I'm WAY too young. Now, I am finally understanding how the numerous xeno-hormones and major stress are causing my premenapausal symptoms and I'm learning how to take better care of myself so that my body does NOT start this phase too early! It also talks about the difference between natural and synthetic hormones and how we are ALL exposed on a normal basis and how they build up. It was a little difficult at first with the medical jargon, but he continually reinforces and builds on his findings from his and others' research. It is AMAZING how little MY doctors know about this! You would think my OB/GYN would be well-versed in this area, but everything they gave me made my symptoms worse! So don't automatically assume that a doctor will hold all the answers to your health, you need to do your own research and be your own advocate! That way, you will at least be well-informed. On top of that, they simply wouldn't consider any natural remedies (anything that didn't require a perscription). I went and got some natural progesterone (this book tells you exactly what to look for) and within a week I could tell the difference. That and some life-style changes (less stress, better food) have made an enormous difference. Not only that, I just found out last week that I'm pregnant! If you are having problems in this area too, I highly recommend reading this book before you go to a fertility clinic!!

Dr. Lee and natural progesterone hormone creams have changed the lives of countless, countless women for the better. There are incredible amounts of xenoestrogens in our environment, chemicals that act on our bodies like estrogen. These are found in most petroleum based products (mineral oil, plastics, etc) and have an effect on our bodies that is subtle, yet can grow to be quite disruptive to our lives, and even deadly in some cases. The tragic death of Dana Reeve, a non-smoker with lung cancer, has brought to the forefront the fact that, of nonsmokers with lung cancer, 80% are WOMEN (source: USA Today, March 8th, Life section). This article even says that this is likely due to an estrogen effect.

Natural progesterone helps to keep hormones in balance in a woman's body. Synthetic progestin IS NOT THE SAME, does not work on the body in the same way, and should not be used for long periods of time. Why doesn't your doctor know about this? Because most of the information she/he gets is from the pharmaceutical companies. Pharma cannot patent a natural element like natural progesterone, so they can't make money off of it. Hence, they push the synthetic hormones which have proved to be detrimental to women's health.

PLEASE read Dr. Lee's book, and share with the women that you love. It is critical to your and their lifelong health and well-being.

After multiple trips to the doctor regarding my weight gain, sluggishness, loss of libido and weird menstural cycle and getting no answers, I was recommended this book. I have been enlightened to learn that what I am experiencing is not so much a "medical problem", but a natural progeression towards menopause. The unpleasant symptoms of this are to a large extent controllable through diet, supplements and exercise. The book treats premenopause with respect and allows you to feel good about yourself instead of dreading the whole aspect as "an unfortunate part of getting old". My doctor wouldn't address the issue, but now I can go in and address it with him on my own terms.

The overall message in this book is that maintaining good health as the years go by, is about keeping all aspects of your life in balance. Being female and in the premenopause category as defined by the authors, I found much in the book that I as well as my close female friends could identify with, both in terms of symptoms resulting from lack of balance, and the reasons why these symptoms arise. As a physician myself, I wholeheartedly agree with the authors' stance that these symptoms arising from a lack of balance in one's life cannot be solved by radical surgery and/or prescription hormones.
The information about substances that we use every day which can disturb the delicate biochemical balance that makes us function at an optimal level, was very eye-opening, and even a little frightening. Most people are unaware of the hidden dangers in a seemingly innocuous bottle of nail polish and nail polish remover.
The recommendations made are easily within the reach of any woman who is interested in embarking on the quest for balance. Although the use of the natural hormone progesterone is advocated, the authors state very clearly that this will only work in the long run if measures to achieve balance in other aspects of one's life (e.g. diet. stress management) are also implemented at the same time. It really is all about balance in all aspects of one's life. This is a good book for women who are not satisfied with the answers and solutions proposed by conventional western medicine to their very real problems at this stage of life.
