Publisher's Summary

A Harvard physician’s scientifically proven method to improve your physical and mental health by optimizing your hormones in your 30s, 40s, and beyond....
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 nonjudgmental 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, Dr. Gottfried bases her three-step treatment strategy on 10 years’ study of cutting-edge techniques and ancient treatments validated by current medical research. The plan includes supplements and targeted lifestyle changes that address underlying deficiencies, herbal therapies, and bio-identical hormones - 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.

Most Helpful

Great info, super dull to listen to.

I love listening to health and nutrition podcasts and have enjoyed other audiobooks in this genre, but I was actually relieved when this one finally ended. Even the parts that I was extremely interested in were very hard to pay attention to. I'm certain that this is because of the narration style, not the author's writing. I will probably just buy the physical book to re-read and use as a reference because the narrator is so very dull to listen to. Don't waste your time or money on this audiobook, just get a hard copy.

Listening to this book is stressful

The narrator chosen for this book puts strong emphasis on every three or four words. I feel like I'm being shouted at. She might be a better fit for more dramatic material but the constant emphasis makes it hard to grasp what is real important.

The information is great but a bit dry -- I am wishing I had a print copy to refer to for the protocols.
