Even if you're a decade or more away from menopause, your hormones may already be out of balance, usually caused by an excess of estrogen and a deficiency of progesterone, say the authors of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Pre-Menopause.
John Lee, MD, is a well-known advocate of the benefits of natural progesterone and the author of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause. Jesse Hanley, MD, adds sensitivity to the emotional and spiritual aspects of premenopause. The authors recommend natural progesterone cream to balance your hormones, eliminate premenopausal symptoms, and make you feel better. They also discuss the dangers of xenohormones - substances not found in nature that have hormonal effects, frequently found in pesticides, solvents, plastics, and hormone-treated meat.
The book presents common symptoms of premenopause with suggested natural treatments (progesterone cream, diet, vitamins, and herbs) and substances to avoid, plus additional chapters on diet and exercise. Many case studies help to bring the information into perspective. If you are premenopausal (or close to someone who is), this is a valuable resource.

Want to be confused and panicked about your health?
Let me preface this review by disclosing that I am a health care provider. But I am also a woman who is experiencing severe premenopausal symptoms. I bought this book in hopes that it would explain the progesterone effects on my symptoms and possibly give me some new avenues to explore for relief. Although I practice traditional medicine, I am very open to alternative and herbal therapy as well. However, I have to admit I was immediately put off by the book's blatant bad mouthing of physicians in general and the vague generalizations of symptoms and treatment.
I was determined to make it all the way through the book to Chapter 16, which promised to give the Mother Lode of advice on progesterone replacement, but when I got there I again found vague generalizations and nothing really helpful. And even there, the advice was also "to check your hormone levels with your doctor", but then go buy progesterone cream and experiment on yourself until you either get it right or start to grow a mustache.
I'm disappointed. I guess I'll just keep wondering about progesterone replacement, and in the meantime I'm going to sit under my fan and drink a glass of wine...
