Wow what an impact this book had on me.

Very good book with pertinent information about female hormones and menopause.
However, found this lacking in the sense that it does not really address the issue of women who are dealing with hormonal imbalance and hormone-sensitive cancers. Yes, testosterone looks like the magic bullet to cure all female ills at menopause, but how does it play with your body if you have had estrogen-sensitive breast cancer, or progesterone-receptor affected cancers? How safe is it for you then? In that sense, re

Very enlightening

I wish I had known all of this earlier in life. All women need to read this. We don't have to get old and fragile.

I was blown away by the information in this book, and I'm seriously glad I read it.

I haven't quite hit menopause, but it's not too far off, so one of the first things I'm going to do it get my testosterone levels tested. I'm amazed at how one simple test can cure all kinds of symptoms, that usually have to be endured or you get a handful of different meds to deal with.

This is a very important book for women to read.

I received an ARC from Net Galley and the Author in exchange for my honest review.

This is a wonderful book that is interesting and very informative. Every woman out there who is experiencing symptoms of menopause should read this book.

“It’s so bad that all I can do is work and go home and go to bed. I never feel like doing anything but sleeping—I’m not even hungry! On the weekends I sleep 12 hours a night and still wake up tired. I take naps when I can and stay up for a few hours before I crash again. My other doctors tell me I’m healthy, but I don’t feel healthy! I feel so depressed. Something is not right.” 0 likes
