This review is from: Natural Hormone Balance For Women: Look Younger, Feel Stronger, and Live Life with Exuberance (Hardcover)
I will add my voice of acclaim for this valuable book. I was looking for someone who could tell me what the symptoms were of too little estrogen, too little progesterone, too much progesterone, etc. and could not find that information anywhere on the internet. Lab tests are expensive, often inaccurate, and ultimately irrelevant if you have "normal" values but are still experiencing symptoms. Dr. Reiss explains in wonderful detail what various symptoms mean and what hormones to take, when and how, and where to get them. There are sections for women approaching menopause as well as in the middle of it and all the way through it. He shares a tremendous wealth of experience!
My first impression was that he was perhaps a "fringe" doctor, one of those who think they've solved some common problem but they can't get other doctors to listen to them. But the more I read, the more I became convinced that he really knows what he's talking about and has solid research studies to back up his opinions. And my doctor was the one who recommended his book. I'm sure his approach will become more and more mainstream in the next few years.
I have been recommending this book to all my perimenopausal and menopausal friends and they have been as excited by it as I am.
