I completely overlooked the idea of hormone imbalance until my girlfriend suggested this book. As soon as I came to the section on fuzzy thinking and did the quiz for "high estrogen" - bingo - I realized what was happening. I am in the perimenopausal age group and didn't even consider my hormones could be affecting how I was feeling. "Feeling Fat, Fuzzy or Frazzled" helped me to pinpoint what was going on in my otherwise healthy body.
I started the vitamin/mineral regimen suggested and in two days I felt significantly better. I began making small lifestyle changes and two weeks later - no more afternoon energy crashes, my brain is back on track and I feel less bloated. I've lost two pounds and feel like my old self again.
The Shames have created a book that is accessible and a good step in the right direction. Not only do they cover the more newagey type remedies (which is what I prefer) but they also offer suggestions on hormone replacement, medicine, testing and more. This makes the book well rounded and can appeal to everyone, regardless of what they believe will work for them.
For myself - so far, so good. Thank you!
This makes Drs. Richard and Karilee Shames' new book, "Feeling Fat, Fuzzy or Frazzled?" particularly useful.
Using their unique "Endo-Type" categorization system, you use questionnaires and self-tests to determine which glands -- your thyroid, adrenals or reproductive glands -- are causing your primary imbalance.
And then, the book helps you restore balance, help rebalance the glands, and ensure that all three types of hormones -- the 3 legs of the "stool" metaphor that the Shames use in the book -- are all equal, and therefore able to support you without tipping over.
The Shames recommend readers find a great practitioner and partner with him or her for your health care. And they dedicate an entire section of book to direct communications with practitioners -- letters you can copy and share with your practitioners or endocrinologists, and will hopefully help you get the care you need.
Ideally, you'll find a great practitioner who can help you implement the program with the guidance of the Shames book.
But if you need to follow a self-guided program, you will find the resources and information -- including options on where to order your own tests, and what supplements and nutrients you may need -- to pursue a self-care program.
And another helpful option is that you can contact Dr. Richard Shames for a phone coaching session to help customize the program to meet your specific needs.Read more ›
