Dr. Sara Gottfried refuses to accept the traditional medical thinking that feeling cranky, asexual, tapped out, and sleep-deprived is just part of being female and aging, and that prescription medication will fix all problems. Offering solutions in non-judgmental and thoughtful language, Dr. Gottfried provides a novel plan based on solid scientific research. She believes you don't find a cure at the bottom of a pill bottle. A specialist in functional and integrative therapies and based on ten years' study of cutting-edge techniques and ancient treatments validated by current medical research, Dr. Gottfried's three-step treatment strategy includes supplements and targeted lifestyle changes that address underlying deficiencies, herbal therapies, and bioidentical hormone-most available without a prescription. Easy to understand and highly illuminating, The Hormone Cure demonstrates how balancing your hormones can actually cure underlying health issues, alleviate symptoms, and give women a life of increased energy, sensuality, and resilience.
