Finally a doctor who cares and is willing to go against the norm in order to give real help to patients rather than prescribe more drugs with side effects requiring drugs, etc. His methods make sense. After being ill for the past year and a half with unexplained symptoms including chronic fatigue, rashes, headaches and dizziness only to be told by numerous doctors that my lab results are within normal range and nothing can be done except to give me prescriptions for antibiotics, antidepressants ...more

When my sister-in-law handed me this book, she kept repeating, "It makes sense." And I am quite inclined to agree with her.

I've been pretty skeptical of alternative medicine, allergists, vitamin supplements, and the like, but because I have a lot of connections to Hotze's clinic within my own family, I was willing to give his book an open-minded shot. Final verdict: this guy knows what he's doing. His principles seem sound.

The book itself is sweet and honest and not entirely full of propaganda

I was happy to read a book written by an M.D. who actually listens to his patients and not so much to blood-tests. He recognizes that patient's symptoms and history should be the deciding factor, with blood-tests being secondary (although hopefully confirming his diagnosis). He doesn't go into extreme detail on each individual hormone, as much as you would get in a book dedicated to that (naturally), but he provides a lot of good info on physiology and treatments. Case histories are also used as ...more

This book helped me so much with many things I was dealing with but did not have any support for. It was a relief to find the words and definitions for my symptoms. I am currently working through the one month candida free diet and the recipes in this book are very good. I recommend this to all women who are feeling tired and old!!

I really appreciated Dr. Hotze's wellness perspective, but I still found him not quite "natural" enough for my taste. :)

Excellent read, with an abundance of Information about women's health, and the health of the entire family. A holistic approach to curing, not just treating many ailments including hormones through natural remedies. This book has lead me to greater Health. Huge applause to Dr. Hotze.

Getting ready to buy a plane ticket! I think Dr Hotze has figured out how to treat the seriously complicated chemical/hormonal issues that plague many women. I felt like his case studies were about me and the fact that he helped the women in them gave me.much hope. I am definitely sold.

This book was very informative and did wonders for me! I am a big believer in 'natural' medicine and balancing our body systems for optimal health. This book is essential for any woman who has had babies, and just not been the same ever since:)

An interesting read. I had really never heard some of the links drawn in this book before, such as the correlation of allergies to hormonal imbalances, or the overabundance of estrogen creating a simulated hypothyroidism.
