Gottfried, a beautiful Harvard Medical School graduate, board-certified gynecologist, and yoga teacher, looks like an advertisement for healthy living and convincingly pushes women to make lifestyle changes rather than immediately asking for conventional prescription drugs to treat problems such as depression. To make her points, she cites studies. Otherwise, she is careful to insert “in my opinion.” For example, she does not like the form of progesterone sold as Provera, because she believes it causes “terrible mood problems” and “removes sex drive in both men and women.” Occasionally, she words her sentences too casually: “Estrogen is actually a group of sex hormones responsible for keeping women juicy, joyous, and jonesin’ for sex.” Goodness. And some of her advice may seem too hard to live by. Still, most of her tips are solid and helpful: break a larger goal into smaller ones, eat like your great-grandparents, cut out white foods, and move more. A glossary of terms and several appendixes should help anyone who wants to understand hormones and the female body. A valuable title for any middle-aged woman. --Karen Springen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Gottfried takes a comprehensive look at the most common physical and emotional ailments affecting women and explains why a hormone imbalance may be at their root. Her premise is simple: when a woman’s hormones are in sync, she’s a powerhouse, but when they’re out of whack, they wreak havoc on her body and mind. The book is both fun and an informative read [and] Gottfried’s take on the female body is eye-opening and empowering." (Spirituality and Health)

PLEASE IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT THIS BUY YOU SHOULD GET IT.
Self care and nourishment and regulating your hormones naturally from a Harvard educated doctor who is letting us know that western medicine really doesnt fully understand hormones!
If you've never heard these ideas before, then I could see being impressed, but by now, most of the ideas in the book are either common sense or well established in functional/environmental or alternative medicine. Thus, I agree with the critics that there is no "Gottfried Protocol," since you'd get the same advice from many other physicians; this book seems to be focused way more on marketing and sales $$$ by creating a brand known as "Gottfried" than on conveying the substance of her message. I also found the tone of the book to be more alarming than reassuring or empowering.
