A good book!,
This review is from: Dr. John Lee's Hormone Balance Made Simple: The Essential How-to Guide to Symptoms, Dosage, Timing, and More (Paperback)
In Dr. Lee's final writing before his death in 2003, he collaborates with Virginia Hopkins on a book to give a simplistic approach to hormone balance.
The writers start out by giving the reader a basic lesson in hormones: which ones are present, how they work, and what happens when they aren't working properly. Next, they delve into symptoms of the person with imbalanced hormones, followed by testing for hormone imbalance, and finally instruction on using natural hormone replacement therapy. There are a variety of ways to balance your hormones. The writer's devote several chapters to the individual hormones and their function in the body and the proper ratios of these hormones in relation to each other.
The best way to determine your need is the symptoms guide, which will allow you to see if you fall into any of the categories that could benefit by natural hormones.
There is so much to be gleaned from Dr. Lee's books and more people need to know of the natural methods he advocated. I was truly fascinated by the information given in this book, and plan to follow up on it by reading one of Dr. Lee's earlier book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About PreMenopause.
Armchair Interviews says: This book would be a perfect place to start for a woman of any age, from childbearing years all the way through menopause.

All of Dr. Lee's books are great. And the natural progesterone cream works wonders!! I've been using it for 2 weeks and my hot flashes are almost gone.
In reference to the reviewer who said she almost died from blood clots due to the progesterone cream, if you look at her other reviews, she admits that she was on the birth control pill. That would be the culprit for blood clots, not natural progesterone cream. She is most likely linked to the medical community or pharmecuticals and therefore trashed Dr. Lee's books.

What kind of progesterone cream are you using? I am just getting started and am still learning so much. My obgyn has been of little help. I keep asking for bioidentical hormones which she has agreed to prescribe, yet she keeps prescribing synthetics! Can these doctors not read? <lol>

One quality progesterone cream product is "Uber Balance" from heartlandnatural.com or 1.888.772.2345 (may also be available from health care practitioners such as acupuncture, herbalists, etc.). It comes in a convenient pump container that dispenses proper dose, plus fast absorption and no build-up of lotion ingredients. Company offers good customer service and support. Another vendor of similar product is progesterall.com.

Your last comment that this would be the perfect book to start for a woman of any age is the one that made me order it RIGHT NOW vs buying it later. Thank you!
