“The Hormone Cure is the playbook for your mojo, your mind, and your bootie. With every chapter I thought, "So THAT's how that works." I wanted to call every girlfriend and give them the goods on how to glow...now and always” (Danielle LaPorte, author of The Fire Starter Sessions)
“Never before have I read a book and shouted, ‘Oh my God, that’s ME!’ Managing hormones is the most important issue of women my age. I don’t just want to read Sara Gottfried, I want her to be my doctor, my friend, and my sister. (Ayelet Waldman, author of Red Hook Road and Bad Mother)
“This wonderful book transforms how we approach women’s health issues, and will help you understand how to achieve hormonal equilibrium if you suffer from fatigue, depression and other endocrine-based neuropsychiatric symptoms.” (Jay Lombard, DO, author of Balance your Brain, Balance your Life)
“Dr. Sara is smart, she’s hip, and yet she’s pure Harvard! Learn how to make your hormones hum. Run, don’t walk, to buy this book—for yourself and your friends. The life you save may be your own.” (Hyla Cass, MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health)
“A magnificent book! Every woman needs to read it, and every doctor.” (Louann Brizendine, MD, Author, The Female Brain and The Male Brain)
“Don’t accept the hormonal hell of being tired, stressed, fat, never in the mood for sex. Dr. Gottfried gives you an effective, easy-to-follow plan to balance your hormones and become lean and energetic. Stop settling, reclaim your sexy!” (JJ Virgin, author of Six Weeks to Sleeveless and Sexy)
“Occasionally a book comes along that’s perfect for its time-on topic, written with authority. Such is the book by Sara Gottfried, MD. It is a definitive integration of safe and effective approaches to the management of menopause.” (Jeffrey Bland, PhD, author of The 20 Day Rejuvenation Diet Program)
"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)
"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. Most of her tips are solid and helpful...A valuable title." (Booklist)

Enter Dr. Sara Gottfried. In the hormone cure, she lays out the reasons why all these things we thought were just normal aging are really signs that our hormone levels are off-balance. And I don't mean menopause off-balance. I mean normal 30s, 40s not even peri-menopause off-balance. Dr Sara validates the fact that things can be off-balance in our body but that doesn't mean that our doctors will catch it, or actually even think to test it.
What this Harvard trained Gynecologist does is explain all the hormones at work in your body (cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, etc) and how you optimally need them to work together to feel your best. Honestly I'd heard of all of them but how no idea how they really worked in my body. She includes easy tests to take (if you don't want to pay lab fees) in her book or what tests to have ordered at labs if you want to be sure. Then she walks you through, step-by-step, what these results ACTUALLY mean. What a real normal is (not the dr's tables looking for REALLY abnormal) and if you are slightly off - how to correct it to feel your best.Read more ›
What she really wants you to do is pay for more of her (poorly organized and grossly overpriced) programs. Join her detoxes, take online classes, pay for a monthly newsletter (it's all regurgitated info from the book anyways) and pay for access to old webinars and speeches. It's a lofty goal to help women improve their health and hormone balance is a genuine issue but this woman leaves me with a sour taste in my mouth. The website alone will set off alarms in any sane person's head - clearly this is someone who subscribes to the pyramid scheme marketing club.
Want to know what the book says? Stress less, eat healthy, get some vitamins and find an exercise regimen that works for you. And don't buy the freaking kindle or audio book. They're riddled with issues.
Another thing that bothered me about this book is that many of her recommended cures are not financially realistic for the average woman. One would have to be quite wealthy to afford many of the things she recommends.
Bottom line: don't waste your money!
What astounds me is that this book isn't even that helpful -- the suggestions are quite basic -- but she's dubbed them "The Gottfried Protocol." Please. Sara, you haven't brought anything new to light, you've just repackaged some common sense and previously-researched information and marketed them as your "protocol." The book was so wrought with arrogance and self-aggrandizing blabber, it was insulting.
