Recommended Reading – What You Must Know About Women’s Hormones by Dr. Pam Smith

Women's HormonesIn this “Recommend Reading” segment, I’d like to encourage anyone suffering from the symptoms of menopause to consider reading What You Must Know About Women’s Hormones by Dr. Pamela Smith.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Smith and attending several seminars where she spoke.  She is incredibly knowledgeable about hormone therapy and does a great job explaining a fairly complicated subject in and understandable way.  In our practice, we talk to women (and men) every day about hormone imbalance and we specialize in creating customized bio-identical hormone therapies for our customers.  This is one of my go -to books when I’m asked for a recommendation.

Hormonal imbalances can occur at any age—before, during, or after menopause—and for a variety of reasons. While most hormone related problems are associated with menopause, fluctuating hormonal levels can also cause a variety of other conditions, and for some women, the effects can be truly debilitating. What You Must Know About Women’s Hormones is a clear guide to the treatment of hormonal irregularities without the health risks associated with standard hormone replacement therapy.

This book is divided into three parts. Part I describes the body’s own hormones, looking at their functions and the problems that can occur if these hormones are not at optimal levels. Part II focuses on the most common problems that arise from hormonal imbalances, such as PMS, hot flashes, and endometriosis. Lastly, Part III details hormone replacement therapy, focusing on the difference between natural and synthetic hormone treatments.

Whether you’re looking for help with menopausal symptoms or you simply want to enjoy vibrant health, What You Must Know About Women’s Hormones can make a profound difference in your life.

Be Well.
