Finally a book on how to balance hormone levels naturally. I have great respect for Dr. Lee. He spells it out for women in a way that is easy to understand. It seems that a lit of doctors don't know enough about the subject and just disregard hormone levels. This book explains how to notice imbalances and how to treat them. Highly recommend to anybody who thinks they might suffer from an imbalance.

Good resource when used in conjunction with Dr. Lee’s other books. This is a quick- reference, resource book. If you want the why and more precise how, read the other books.

The book was an easy read. Very informative. It contains a basic overview of how hormones work in your body. I started to read "What your doctor will not tell you about Menopause". This book is more technical than this book but it is a good place to start. I liked the section on Hormone Balance Test. The self test gives you a good place to start understanding some of the changes going on as you age. I recommend this book.

As someone just beginning to navigate the mysterious world of hormone replacement, I am very grateful to have the information in this book. The basics of how hormones work in the body were clearly explained, and I learned quite a bit that my own doctor--who believes in and uses bioidentical hormones herself--did not fully explain to me. I feel like I will be much better informed and able to make intelligent decisions as a result.

The title of the book says it all

This book is both comprehensive and simple enough to understand. It clearly describes how, when, and why to use hormonal supplements. It also describes the value of nutrition and adequate rest to maintaining a healthy, happy body. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking good health and wants to keep that good health going through adulthood as a foundation to a healthy aging process.

Excellent and very informative

My girlfriend recommended I read Dr. Lee's books. I started with this one and found it very informative. Planning to start next one today. A MUST READ for any woman experiencing menopausal symptoms and especially if her current Dr is clueless.

Dr John Lee was ahead of his time when the said decades ago that synthetic hormones in conventional HRT cause breast cancer and stroke in women. He advocated bioidentical hormones esp progesterone and many women have benefitted.

A good read from a courageous and wise man.

Recommends it for: Any woman, between 15 and 99
This is my favorite of all of Dr. John Lee's books. I have a copy in my car and one in my office as well. So neccesary for separating the wheat from the chaff, when it comes to learn what you need to know about estrogen dominance!

This book is an over view of Dr. John Lee's other books, but is an easy read and references back to his other books.

Nice write up of the various hormones we have to keep track of as we get older. Spoiler: aging sucks, but I guess it's better than the alternative.
