Whether it's cramps, cancer, infertility, impotence, moodiness or menopause, Dr. Barnard masterfully navigates a clear path to your healthiest self."―Kristi Funk, MD, FACS, breast cancer surgeon, co-founder of Pink Lotus Breast Center, and bestselling author of Breasts: The Owner's Manual
"Dr. Neal Barnard is one of the most important authorities of our time on nutrition, diet, and health, and Your Body in Balance is the book that can and will finally change your health for good. Dr. Barnard walks us through the most common and troublesome ailments which so many of us struggle with: hormone fluctuations, thyroid conditions, chronic and terminal illness, and mood disorders-with an eye towards research and solutions based in foods commonly available to us. We have the power to heal our bodies with the foods we eat, and Your Body in Balance is the resource with the wisdom to get us there. With recipes included, this may just be the only book you need on your shelf in order to change your body, your health, and your life."―Mayim Bialik, PhD, neuroscientist and actor
"Finally, an intelligent guide book that speaks up about the potent role our hormones play in every aspect of our lives. As an Olympic athlete, I never really thought of this connection until I dropped all animal foods from my diet and turned to whole plant foods to fuel my training. Almost overnight, my adaptation to training sped up (which is a function of our immune system directed by hormones), my PMS subsided, my breakouts cleared up, and my ability to focus and calm my nerves greatly improved. Dr. Barnard takes the reader on a revealing journey to uncover what's really behind some of our most common physical ailments and how to fix them in the blink of an eye."―Dotsie Bausch, Olympic silver medalist, 8X U.S. National Champion, former world record holder, 2x Pan American Gold, and founder of Switch4Good
"Your Body in Balance is an incredible resource. If you have ever wondered how the food you eat impacts your fertility, erectile function, thyroid function, skin, hair, and so much more, wonder no longer. This book shows us how the food we eat can literally change our hormones, our mood, and our health! Happy eating!"―Robert Ostfeld, MD, MSc, FACC, director of Preventive Cardiology at Montefiore Health System in New York

I am a dedicated reader of the latest health literature, with a particular passion around nutrition and women’s health.
Don’t waste your money or time on this book. Here is a quote for you found in the chapter on ‘Tackling Menopause” - “Hot Flashes - You break into a sweat, fan yourself and in a few minutes it will be over.” How out of touch with the female body is this man?
All in all, I was disappointed in my purchase.
I am guessing that most readers will skip straight to the section that applies to them. It’s not that long—it’s easy to get through it—and I am finding that each chapter has really amazing information, and similar themes came up and built on each other. For example, the same foods that lead to infertility are also a problem for cramps and endometriosis, and even set a woman up for hot flashes later. If you just read one chapter, you’ll miss all that great stuff.
Dr. Barnard makes science entertaining and also practical. What an excellent book!
The book is very encouraging, showing you how to change your diet to conquer health problems. But I have to say, I found myself getting angry that this information has not been out there before. On practically every page, I was thinking about how many friends had menstrual symptoms when they were young, hot flashes when they were older, weight problems, mood problems, a goofed up thyroid, and everything else, and no one ever figured out how to help them; I think this book will mark a turning point.
That said, Dr. Barnard does not really criticize the medical community and makes a point that medical care has important roles to play. But I honestly think that if doctors provided good nutrition advice, there would be much less need for medications, etc.
Anyway, I think this is a great resource, and I wish it had been available years ago.
If your suffering from health issues this is a must read.
