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. In The Hormone Cure ($25.00), she combines natural therapies with rigorous scientific testing to help women feel fully alive, especially in the years prior to menopause. Using an informative questionnaire to identify common symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as insomnia, low sex drive, lack of energy, moodiness, hot flashes, and more; detailing causes; and 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.
