It Must be My Hormones
Hormones can be a girl's best friend or worst enemy. They can make us feel 'together' or 'not ourselves', positive or depressed, healthy or downright sick. In the worst cases, hormonal imbalances cause depression, immune problems, osteoporosis, cystitis, infertility and other scary conditions.
Around the time when menopause creeps up on us- or hits us with the force of a sledgehammer- and often in the post-baby months, our hormones can get seriously out of whack. That's when doctors often prescribe conventional HRT, antidepressants or other one-size-fits-all medications. But these drugs are not always the answer. And often they only make things worse.
Dr Marion Gluck and nutritionist Vicki Edgson offer hope for women battling hormone imbalance who want to know all the options. For 15 years Marion has treated patients successfully using hormones identical to those found in our bodies (unlike many conventional HRT drugs) to complement exactly an individuals hormone profile. Marion explains the roles various hormones play and what can be done when the balance is lost, offering inspiring case studies of patients whose lives have been turned around. Vicki provides practical advice for using diet to support hormone recovery.
Filled with inspiring personal stories, nutritional suggestions and advice on bio-identical hormone therapy- the best and safest choice for HRT- It Must be My Hormones will help you regain control of your hormones and your life.
