Enhance your purchase
The latest information about estrogen, the body's enlivening powerhouse hormone.
Why is estrogen crucial―and so misunderstood? How do I know if my estrogen level is “normal”? What is the best treatment for a hormonal imbalance? How does estrogen impact my reproductive cycle? Is hormone replacement therapy right for me? Is it only useful at menopause? How can I be my best, healthiest self now and in the future?
Understanding estrogen―its function and interplay with all your other hormones and body systems―is key to a healthy, vibrant life. But far too many women remain unaware of the benefits of estrogen, and how it can be supplemented in natural, bioidentical form.
This book, written by an expert in the field of OB-GYN and integrative medicine, offers an authoritative yet accessible approach to hormonal health. In The Good News About Estrogen, Dr. Uzzi Reiss draws upon the most up-to-date scientific research, as well as women’s stories from his decades of practice, to explain:
- How hormones―and your levels of estrogen―change over time, and what you can do to achieve balance naturally or with hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
- The good news about estrogen―how it can enhance energy, sexuality, and memory; alleviate premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or the side effects of menopause; help fight weight gain, anxiety, depression, and more.
- Bioidentical hormones―why they are safe and crucial to your well-being at any age or stage, and how to choose which treatment plan is right for you.
- How your everyday habits―what you eat, drink, wear, and breathe―can affect hormonal health, and which small lifestyle changes can make a big difference.
- Nutrition and exercise―learn how each works hand-in-hand with hormones and can help you to achieve maximum physical and emotional fitness, promote bone health, prevent cardiovascular disease, and boost brain power.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
In all his years of being a doctor of women, he comes with remarkably redundant solutions to the ongoing results of estrogen loss: get plenty of sleep, exercise, watch your diet, avoid contaminants, etc., etc. The doctor even provides recipes for us.
I didn’t notice any of the “up-to-date scientific research” and quoting stories from the doctor’s patients doesn’t qualify as scientific research. The resources he cites at the end of the book don’t seem to be very current as they range in age from 29 years old to five years old – hardly up-to-date research.
What I wanted from this book was something I could take to my doctor and ask her her opinion of what he has to say or to be able to give her something based in fact to change her mind about the efficacy of working with me to add a source of estrogen to my diet.
If you want a basic book about women and estrogen, this is the book for you, if want something more than what most of us of a certain age already know, or should know, this isn’t the book for you. Please note that much of this book seems to be aimed at women who are either perimenopausal or have just crossed over the line to menopause.
My thanks to St. Martin’s Press and Edelweiss for an eARC.
